Anyone know who makes or sells Silnylon stake sacks. 2-3" wide X 7-9" long.
Wish I had a sewing machine, as these would be easy enough to make.
I'd like to have the top closure fold down and be secured with a strip of velcro, rather than a draw string. I have an REI brand stake sack, but its overkill, and a tad on the heavy side well .6 of an ounce anyway. Maybe these aren't that bad, considering they are made from a heavier nylon that's less prone to puncture?
I've got the Sil stake sacks for my BA tents, and I've been using these when I use my tarps, but I want individual sacks for each of my shelters, so I'll always be able to keep a set of stakes with each shelter and not swap back and forth, were I could end up forgetting the stakes altogether?Sep 18, 2009 at 3:33 pm #1528656

Try MLD-I bet Ron would make one for you or they might have them in stock….Golite has some great stake bags too.
GoodluckSep 18, 2009 at 3:44 pm #1528660
That sound like the diamentions of my golite stake bag. I will measure it for you tonight. If I have an extra one, you can have it, if you pay shipping. I use the long "nail" style staks in it.

Excuse my spelling! Fat fingers at work! LOLSep 18, 2009 at 4:41 pm #1528677
I looked at both MLD and Golite, but no such luck ?Sep 18, 2009 at 4:43 pm #1528678
Thanks for the offer, I might just have enough in my paypal account to cover the shipping. You probably could send it in a envelope?Sep 18, 2009 at 5:43 pm #1528697
I inquired at Big Agnes, as they use Silnylon stake sacks with their lightweight tents, which, I have (2) the SeedHouse SL2 and the Copper Spur UL1.
Not sure if they'll be able to sell them separate though, as they probably come from China shipped with the tents only?Sep 18, 2009 at 6:15 pm #1528709

TarpTent ships their stakes in silnylon bags.

These are the stakes I use, that fit in my golite stake bag that measures 4.5" x 10". these bags came with tarps/tent I have bought from golite over the years.

Yep, your Golite stake bags are about the same size as my BA stake bags. Funny how large they make them, the lengths are fine, but they're much too wide for the number of stakes, one would ever put into them? They could be 1/2 the width easily?
I weighed my heavy REI stake bag, its .7oz versus .2oz for the BA silnylon bagsSep 18, 2009 at 7:32 pm #1528734
Yeah…I don't get the sizing of the either.

perhaps try contacting brian at OES. he may sell some stake bags. the one that came w/ my tarp was sized perfectly for 6-8 stakesSep 18, 2009 at 9:38 pm #1528753

I believe Joe at Z-packs makes silnylon or cuben bags in small sizes that may work well for stakes.Sep 19, 2009 at 5:12 am #1528790

Hey, I have some a silnylon around and I just finished making some tent stake bags for myself from scraps. I'll make you a couple with a re-enforced bottom so they stakes will never poke through! What is your shelter made out of? If silnylon I throw in a couple of line tensioners. e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgSep 19, 2009 at 8:56 am #1528812

They have a set of sil nylon bags for not very much cash. I use the smallest black bag for stakes. The orange bag is perfect for a regular neo-air or a largish trap.Sep 19, 2009 at 10:09 am #1528827

Frank, what do your silnylon bags weigh? I might be interested.
Right now I'm just using a sandwich sized Ziplock bag for my stakes which works well. I don't know if it's durable enough for the long haul, but it's light, cheap and sized pretty well.
