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)?

light.Reasonably waterproof (opening doesn't seal but get's pretty tight wouldn't trust it underwater for too long).durable, stuffed it tight full of clothes and miscellaneous gear with no failures.Fits perfectly in my old DaKine Heli-Pro to keep contents dry after a few powder spills.

Update: After 20 miles of paddling this thing kept all gear inside bone dry, Very impressed with the water resistance.

5'11" 145lbs I got a medium. It's fits perfectly in the arms could be little smaller around the stomach area. I probably could have gotten a small and been just fine.Pros: Warmth to weight 15oz. (much lighter than my Arc'teryx Covert half-zip fleece and warmer)compresses into it's own pocket (perfect pillow!)Collar fits nicely when zipped all the way up.Warm but not hot... comfortable with just a t-shirt underneath to low 30'scomfortable with just a t-shirt up to the 60'sPretty durable for the weightCons: Not windproof. If it's going to be wind bring a wind wall vest.Not as water-repellent as I was hopping. I get a little nervious if it wet out and I don't have a shell over it.

Fit is a little on the small size, I wear a 9.5 and got mediums... my toes are definitely touching the front and the ankle would be tight if i didn't have chicken legs. Very comfortable, I've slept in them a hand full of times and very comfortable. The soles aren't anything to write home about but they work.

Ok... so i now realize I'm pretty dirty. FINALLY washed my Down sleeping bag after a few to many nights (years) it's now twice as lofty as it was before and the water was nasty afterwards... this stuff really did a great job cleaning my filthy sleeping bag.
