I've heard mixed reviews about the current version of Chaco's (made in China) also It seems like neither Back Country nor REI is restocking any of them.
I'm I out of luck of ever getting a pair of Chaco's?
If I'm not out of luck what's the difference betweeen the different soles (Unaweep vs Unaweep pro)?

I just go straight into the dry bag. You can roll these down and "compress" your bag pretty well with them. Down is a lot easier to compress than synthetic in my opinion. Keep in mind you'll need to Roll the closer a few times to keep the contents dry (but you probably already knew that).

9 x 21in [25L] = Might be a tight fit depends on if your 8x17 leaves room to compress or is pretty tight to start with.

7 x 25in [35L] = Would probably fit pretty well.

10 x 28.5in [60L] = Would be plenty big and leave some room for other stuff.

It basically uses chemical reaction between salt and electricity to kill bad stuff...
Take a look at MSR FAQ's about MIOX to see all the details about treating more that 4L of water at a time etc.
