The waterproof zip on the DryZone Rover can be a bit tricky until you get the hang of it, but I have not had any problems with it.

I like the Lowepro Nova AW bags. The water proof cover will cover all zipper for the compartments. If you do not need it, the cover will be tucked back inside its own compartment. Then It will be used just like an ordinary bag. So you do not need one bag for dry condition and another bag for wet condition.  I have used it in the heavy rain many times and jumped off the Zodiac many times also.

With less than a week till departure, I had to pull the trigger and got the DryZone 200.
Travelled domestically this weekend and brought it just to test it out. Fit in regional jet overhead and carried my 1D-X,  70-100, 24-70 and 16-35 and my new shorty forty mounted, plus plenty of cable/caps/filters room, and flash, gorilla pod. Rides higher on back and has large profile but glad to have it.
Still debating on underwater option.
Can't decide between GoPro or an underwater P/S (D20)?
Help  :)

I took a PowerShot D10 on my Galapagos trips  for use underwater. It did leak once (possibly when I knocked it climbing into the panga) and the screen packed up. But it soon dried out and the screen came back to life. The underwater mode on the D10 (I assume the D20 has a similar mode) cuts through the murk giving good underwater photos.

If I were going - I'd bring the longest glass I owned, for the birds and wildlife.  I'd bring a 24-105 or similar, and I'd bring my 28/1.8 for whatever night time fast lens and/or wide use.  And I'd bring one of my M4Ps, with a 35/2.0 and some film, as backup.

I travel much, hate to be burdened with gear. 

Instead of trying to immerse my technology into my environment, with me behind it, I'd rather immerse myself into my environment, and use whatever I've got.   Based on images I've got from the early 70's, when all I had was a match needle Nikkormat and a 50/2.0 lens... I can say - less is more, for me.
