Pros:durable mallet

Cons:broom is small

The Bottom Line: I would recommend it to any camper.


Let's face it - when camping, there are two categories of gear: necessities and other stuff that may be helpful. This package from Coleman, consisting of (1) a small broom and dustpan, (2) four aluminum stakes, (3) a rubber-headed mallet and (4) a stake remover, definitely falls in the second category.

(1) Broom and dustpan -- small, plastic and green, this just might get the most use out of anything in the package. Not much to say here -- it does its job. Save the plastic wrapper this comes in, because its hard to get the broom back into the mesh bag without it.

(2) Four aluminum stakes -- these are actually pretty good. The stakes are much longer and sturdier than the ones that came with my tent. They are essentially giant nails with a green plastic head attached for the line to tie onto. I would worry about cracking the heads if they got too cold.

(3) Rubber-headed mallet -- much more substantial than you might think. good heft to this and it will do it's job and any others that might call for a similar tool. A bit heavy, if anything.

(4) Stake remover -- Cheap, bends out of shape.

All of this comes packed in a little mesh bag. The bag is not really big enough for all of this stuff, nor is it really sturdy enough to put up with any amount of abuse, and the stakes punch right through the bottom.

Bottom line -- you can camp a thousand times without having this set and you would never miss it, but it's always nice to have extra stakes and a way to clean your tent floor. For the price, it's not a bad set to have.
