For longer backcountry trips, I never leave home without a "camp shoe". Based on the list below, these will probably always be the ones:

1. 12.8 ounces for a sturdy closed-toe pair at size 10.5
2. You can opt for the no heal config. (which is great if your dealing with unexpected blisters) or you can create your own or buy a croc adjustable strap that will allow for more secure fit...possible stream crossings.
3. They are extremely comfortable.
4. They keep your feet suprisingly clean and ventilated.
5. They don't absorb water.

I just wish they would create a freakishly light model for us weight obsessed folks, but in relative shoe terms, they really already are.

Agree, closed toe Crocs (or equivalent knock-off) are my favorite camp shoe. I don't like the holey Crocs, as wet grass, rain etc...can soak your socks, and they are more prone to getting dirt, stones and stuff in them. An ajustable strap would be better for crossing rivers though.

they are indeed lightweight, but I found them awful as a camp shoe. I want something I can feel more confident scrambling in. Also, my relatively sweaty feet made these a mess pretty quickly (and that was in the the kind with holes). I know a lot of people who love them, but I can't get on board.

They are so light you can really tie them way back on the outside of your pack without throwing off the balance. So they will "fit" onto (if not "into") any setup.

They don't soak up water.

You can wear them, usually (depending on how tight they are barefoot) with or without socks.

And they make a great "shower shoe" to keep athlete's foot away in those funky campground showers.

My preference is for open toe models....
