You must get a bulk discount at WM. I'll consider buying the bag if you agree to change your avatar.Jun 4, 2008 at 10:09 am #1436523
LOL – I wished. I could change it to the WM logo just for you!
Blame my spontaneous decisions to buy gear that I later regret. So youthful. Well, if you want it … I will be around. Waiting for a change in Avatar may jeopordize your chances to get the bag though! :-)Jun 4, 2008 at 10:15 am #1436525

FWIW, I have this same bag and it's a GREAT bag. You can shake the down to the top of the bag and easily push it a good bit lower than the 40 degree rating. Also opens up completely to be used as a quilt in warmer weather. Somebody take advantage of this great deal!!!Jun 4, 2008 at 11:04 am #1436539
Scott, wrong bag. The highlite is sewn through with a half zipper. The 5'6" length should weigh less than 15 oz.Jun 4, 2008 at 11:04 am #1436540

Oops…my mistake, I have the MityLite….but still a great deal on a great bag, from a great company.Jun 4, 2008 at 11:08 am #1436541
"The 5'6" length should weigh less than 15 oz"
Well – not according to the WM website. 15oz it is!

Bump! The WM truck is not going to turn over in front of my place anytime soon … get it while you can!Jun 5, 2008 at 3:08 pm #1436787

HEY!!! I didn't know the HighLite came in red!?!Jun 5, 2008 at 4:33 pm #1436795

It doesn't. Both the Highlite and the Megalite are purple.
Only 5 WM bags come in red shells.
In the WM Extremelite Series, red bags are the Summerlite and the Alpinlite.
In the Microfiber Series, red bags are the Sycamore MF and the Apache MF
In the Gore Windstopper Expedition Series, only the Bison is red. This is the top of the WM line. Even Sven can't afford to speculate on this model.Jun 5, 2008 at 4:45 pm #1436798

Sale of the purple (yes, not red – I knew it was a stretch and you caught me) bag is pending!

I would have bought that bag in a second. However, the 5'6" length limits it. I would have bought for my son but at 5'10" I figure it was too short. I love WM bags.Jun 10, 2008 at 6:23 am #1437538
Thanks guys! Sold!Jun 11, 2008 at 8:28 am #1437781
