The North Face Base Camp Lite grabbed up a Best Buy for Sporty Adventures award due to it being highly comfortable, well-tractioned, and lightweight. Other than being on the less durable side, we have no complaints about this plush flip. It's well-priced, and every time we went out for testing, it was one of the first models people would reach for. The straps hold onto water a bit long after getting thoroughly soaked, but nothing outrageous or surprising. All in all, this is a fantastic option to have along for all manner of warm weather outings and adventures.
If you would like to stay in this price range but are craving something a little more stylish, our Best Stylish Buy on a Tight Budget, the Teva Olowahu is worth exploring. We also really loved the simplicity and craftsmanship of the Rainbow Single Layer Premier.
