I bought these for lightweight backpacking and they've worked out on a few trips so far. The upper is light, but gets a great tight fit to your foot. The soles aren't thick, so you can feel rocks in the trail, and this could get old on longer trips (on 12 mile day they started to get sore). The traction on them in incredible. I wound up wade fishing a river one day, but didn't have wading boots so I wore these. They stuck to wet slimy rocks surprisingly well and the grip translates well to more traditional uses like scrambling over rock fields, etc.
