    Water Shoes Yes or No

    With those hiking shoes you have no need for water shoes, just wear em dry. A pair of cheap super light flip flops are nice for camp if your shoes haven't dried yet.

    Thoughts and opinion these packs

    Careful with the GG, great durable packs but the frame sheets tend to break, however they are super good about getting you a replacement. My vote is for ULA but they are all top loaders.
