More importantly -

Get the one with the Lifetime Guarantee. That way you'll never have to pay to replace it.
Oh, and stay away from Primaloft. It needs replacing. Wont hold its loft.
You'll have very little night at the time you're hunting, so I don't think a flashlight pocket, which costs money, is very important.
Might be nice if the bag could be made into a system by adding an Overbag. That way if you ever need additional warmth, you'll have a system with a Flexible Temperature Range.
Lean toward a zero-degree bag. It's not uncomfortable at fifty, and still comfortable at colder temps.
Not all synthetic bags are equal. Go with a bag with a continuous filament fiber, not a chopped staple fiber like Primaloft. Great when new, but not after laundering and long-term compression.
Don't buy a bag that is too tight, so if the store has a fitting table where you can try on the bag, that is a plus.
Hope this helps.
