BLM on Rogue River allows them, as long as you put used Wag Bags into a hard sided, waterproof, gasket lid container.
I have heard similar on the Main Salmon, but this was second hand info, so can't confirm. I used them on a recent 4 day Southfork Snake trip for the first time. My feelings on them are mixed. I think they are great for short trips, but I doubt I'd use them on a weeklong trip. They do an ok job with odor control, but not great. They don't pack down very small. We were a group of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids. We used a new bag each day. Since I was the one who wanted to try them out, I was on groover duty each day. Getting one days worth of "stuff" tightly compacted and into the large sturdy zip lock bag wasn't easy. I'd almost go with two bags per day, and more depending on group size. That would get pricey and take up a lot of room in whatever container you are transporting them in. You definitely want the used bags in a sturdy container. On the positive side, it was nice to put them in the dumpster at the takeout, instead of playing the 4 inch RV dump station game. I will use them for short trips, with a small group, and no scat machine.BLM on Rogue River allows them, as long as you put used Wag Bags into a hard sided, waterproof, gasket lid container.
considering your user name..., well, oh, never mind, just forget it....sweet, another buzz poo thread...:shock:
They come with their own biodegradable zip lock. That's what you put the main wag bag in after you use it. But it's not easy if you let the wag bag get too full.Wag bags have there place on solo or small trips. I've used the pett system on several solo westwater and cat trips, as well as small trips with only a few peeps.
I would not package them in ziplocks prior to disposal as this defeats the purpose of biodegrading them safely.

Thanks. I'd love to do some multi-day touring down at Lake Powell, and they require a system of some sort. Pvc set-up seems compact & easy to make.Yes, the Walmart bags are the equivalent of Wag brand bags, but significantly less expensive. I have a 4" pvc tube I use with them for multi day trips.
