Dart river camp site 

The requirement for an ultra lightweight river shoe was filled when Chris from Kayak HQ suggested the Astral Brewer. Incredibly light, self-draining. I found them best with bare feet but if you want to wear socks go for it.

I found the Astral Brewer river shoes invaluable on training trips and the main film expedition. They gave great foot protection while in the pack rafts but also excellent grip on the river rocks while scoping out rapids before running them. While on the bike packer sections they compressed and stored well on my Stealth Packhorse seat bag.
