Hands down the best, toughest sandal on the market. Secure, great support. If you plan on using them for hiking, consider two things. 1 no sandal is secure enough to rival a shoe while scrambling. 2 every rock and twig on the trail will work its way in-between your foot and the bed. Things they excel in: travel, belaying, short hot weather walks (also makes for some interesting tan lines on your feet!), and any approach that is not too technical. They are the best sandals, but still just sandals, not the do everything wonders that Chaco says they are.
