    Keen CNX Walking Sandals

    I haven't had a problem with blisters, wearing them hiking around central Texas. But they have a version that doesn't have the toe strap as well.

    Which Osprey backpack?

    I just want to echo Tom's thanks to all. I think I will be taking a pack that is a bit smaller than my 65. Will definitely be checking out another Osprey pack, I do love the one I have. Blessings!
