Snow Peak Copper Head Peg Hammer

The next time you head out on a tent camping trip, be sure to bring Snow Peak’s Copper Head Peg Hammer along to help with campsite setup and takedown — specifically, driving tent stakes into the ground and pulling them out later.

The hammer’s copper head lends it a shock-absorbing property, reducing stress on your arm and making the job feel a lot less laborious. It also has a side benefit of softening the *ping* noise each time you strike a tent stake, which your ears will thank you for.

They offer both a copper head version ($70) and a steel head one ($50). Both of them have solid oak handles and feature an electrodeposited black coating across the heads. Either can be carried in a specially designed case (sold separately, $22) along with those stakes I linked earlier.
