For a lightweight, durable peg that provides a really good hold in soft ground this is a great option. This set of six pegs provides a firm hold and will perform well in even the worst conditions.
Gram-counter Gear says
The Aluminium Tent Peg has a simple, durable design that provides a solid hold in softer ground. The classic Y-shape is lightweight yet large enough and strong enough to perform well in challenging, softer ground conditions. With a good sized notch for keep guy lines in place this peg is highly effective.
The hope allows you to add cord to make extracting it easier while the red colouring works well as it stands out in the ground when setting up and packing away. The use of aluminium keeps the price down providing great value for money.
Gram-counter Gear's Aluminium Y Pegs use a large, wide design that works really well in softer ground. Although they are versatile enough to work in most ground conditions they do excel in softer ground. The notch at the top goes all round for keeping guy lines secure and the Y-shape design provides maximum hold compared to most other pegs.
The red colouring makes them easy to spot in the ground which is a nice touch. These pegs are so light and provide such a good hold that I always pack a few in my tent bag for emergencies if the ground is softer than expected or the wind picks up.
