We use our Crocs on most stream crossings. They weigh less than a pound (about 11oz) and we've got the kind that actually includes straps to stay on your feet. And we love them for walking around in camp after a day on the trail.

Yeah, I know. Your lightweight trailrunners feel great on your feet. But we just don't like leaving our feet in the same shoes for 16 hours+ a day. The crocs really are very comfy, and it's one of the few luxuries we allow ourselves on the trail.

Other than the scenery and the sheer joy of backpacking, that it!
