    Just got a pair of "DAWGS" myself after reading this thread. Very happy with my purchase.

    +1 for crocs. Great for water crossings and a casual evening by the fire. Flip flops in Backcountry

    Got some dawgs in the mail this week. 10.2oz for a pair of 12/13's.

    A little closer to 12 than 13, but plenty wide and should work.

    Ah flip flops... I once took Locals citing the weight savings over Teva sandals.
    Had to cross a mid thigh braid 50 yards from the 180 so I tied the old boots to the pack and stepped in...

    Before my foot hit the bottom the flip flop ripped off my foot and started it's long journey to the Gulf of Alaska.
    It's mate followed three steps later...

    Count me in as a fan of Crocs, after a long day in the boots.

    Just saw these new crocs. They appear to be a bit more collapsible/packable than the standard models, would love to know if anyone tries them.

    I saw these as well and debating on them, I would think they would be lighter than the original style but who knows. If you get them, I'd like to know what you think about them.

    I picked up a set a few weeks ago as well. Looking forward to throwing them on and off around the river crossings and mucking about at camp.

    Anyone tried Vibram Five Fingers Spyridon MR Elites?

    Amazon info here: Amazon.com | Vibram Men's Spyridon Mr Elite Trail Running Shoe | Trail Running

    Currently are on Massdrop for $50 ... would be interesting to see how they'd go as a stalking / camp / creek crossing option: Massdrop: Bringing Enthusiasts Together

    This is the lightweight zone, ya'll need to up your game.

    I learned this trick from Skurka, but what I do is if my feet are damp from water or sweat, I let them air out when I get to camp, and then once they are mostly dry I will put on my clean camp/sleep socks and then put put my feet into gallon ziplock bags (or produce bags), and then put my boots/shoes back on. Now my feet are dry and cozy in socks, and they're not getting dirty in camp or wet from my boots and I can go about my business as usual. If you need to dry out your boots, just make sure you take out the insoles and prop them up on sticks overnight where they'll get lots of airflow and any decent pair of footwear should be dry overnight.

    A pair of produce bags will last a weekender, or if I'm out for a week or more, I will just use a single set of gallon ziplocks that are much sturdier. Try it, it works great. Save yourself the ridiculous quarter or half pound that a pair of flip flops will cost you.

    That's a good idea. I know for me, its nice to be out of my boots and in something different around camp. My feet just feel way better

    +1 for the Merrells over crocs. Nice to lace up when crossing swift water.
