Anyway, good luck with it all over there and let us know how you go with the soft bags!
From my experiences in South America, I think the perfect luggage setup is a hard secure backbox for the stuff you want to keep safe and soft bags for clothes. Maybe a small ortlieb for a sleeping bag and a thermarest.
I dont know what your experience is but you really just gotta take as little as possible. EVERYONE send soooo much stuff home its a joke.
You really really really really need so little.
