The Reed Nunatakkers are a group of Nunatakkers in East Antarctica Victoria Land . They rise 10 km west of the Hansen Nunatak on the watershed between the upper sections of the Reeves and Larsen glaciers .

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) mapped them using their own surveys and aerial photographs of the United States Navy from 1956 to 1962. The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names named them in 1968 after David E. Reed, topography engineer of the USGS on the McMurdo - Station between 1964 and 1965.
