A tarp doesn’t require too many things in order to make a great shelter, but a few stakes to anchor it can be incredibly useful. Sure you can make your own, but ours are all ready to go.
10″ long, USA steel, modern made stakes, they come either unfinished or zinc plated. We do not recommend these for historical use, or use with large tents. 4 stakes are enough to secure an oilskin tarp, but 8 will keep it in place through most weather.
