I have experimented with a number of sandals and jandals, ive even tried Crocs, always I was unable to balance weight/utility/comfort. I think that may have changed, introducing my new camp sandal: the Bedrock Gabbro Lite:
|Bedrock Gabbro Lite|
The Bedrock Gabbro Lite is super light (just 116gm) and has a quality Vibram sole. I first saw these on an American hiking site i visit, and thought they looked like a good solution. You are able to buy both replacement soles and straps for these sandals which is a great innovation.If it is cold or the bugs are biting you need to team these with toe socks.
I took them with me on my last trip to Hawdon Hut and they performed well: they are supportive and light to carry. Obviously, wear your boots/shoes when cutting wood etc. (many is the tale of the chopped up foot clothed in a flip flop).
