My Waldies are one of the few luxuries in an otherwise pretty light pack. 11
ounces for total foot comfort at the end of the day is worthwhile to me (as
is 24 ounces for a Thermarest Prolite 4). I realize other people will make
different choices. (I'm hardly ultralight, though -- my base weight for an
upcoming March hike near Erwin is <16 pounds.)
