Don't ever buy a bag without getting inside of it. Sleeping bags are about as personal as underwear....what I like may irritate you and v. versa. Consider your body metabolism, hot or cold? Consider the lining that you will be sleeping on...soft or scratchy? Do you like room to roll around or do you want something tight on your body? Bedroll vs. sleeping bag? Many things to consider but there are some other good brands available. Do NOT buy just based on price or you may regret it every miserable night you are in it.

IDman, I am not able to find these bags in nearby stores and see them only online. Thats why I wanted to get some opinion from who knows bags or may have used these. Or can suggest something else in budget range.

IDman is right, bags are very individual thing. The best deals can be found online only, and on discontinued models - and I think Wasatch is discontinued.

Brand is not important as long as it is a well known brand. Can be North Face, can be Kelty, can by something else. But you need to know WHAT KIND of bag and WHAT KIND of features you want. It helps when seller posts at least basic info - mummy, hybrid or envelope, girth, mate-able or not, zipper full or half, can be opened from inside (i.e. double tabs) or not, footbox zipper or not, inside fabric etc. And of course the temperature range.

Doesn't help when seller posts no info other than "regular size". You may find this info on the company website (sometimes), or in reviews, but you need to know what you are looking for.

I guess it won't be too polite to say this, but this forum is not the most popular one with hiking and camping crowd. Very good for RV people though.
