Looks like there is an alternative to WAG bag on the market now, called Restop. It's a bag containment system for human waste to comply with the outdoor ethics of Leave No Trace. They're a corporate sponsor of The Access Fund.
Restop 2, is a solid waste bag, contains the odor as well as the waste, providing a user-friendly and pleasant means to "pack it out." Inside the bag is a powder, a polymer/enzyme blend, which biodegrades and gels the waste, giving it EPA approval to be simply thrown in the trash after use.
The advantage of Restop over other bag systems is the containment of the odor, a significant issue if one is expected to carry out their waste. Price seems about the same at about 2.50 a bag if you are buying them in small numbers.
