I just received my new Slick bag-0 degrees, regular length, wide. It is awesome.

My question is- how do you store it when not in use? Do you store outside of any bag and folded over a rack or is it OK to store it in the stuff sack ( not compressed )?

Thanks for your thoughts,
Nick

I have a rather large canvas duffel bag...very similar to an older style military duffel....and I just dump mine in there, hang it from a clothes rack, and store it. It is not compressed, and the canvas fabric allows the sleeping bag to breath.

i store my bags, down & synthetic laying flat out on the floor, usually over other gear. tents, tarps, puffy pants & jackets, but i keep them on top.......i realize not everyone has the room to do this though....whatever you can do to maximize the fluffy loftness will help

Mine are stored in a $3 mesh laundry bag from Target, one per bag. Then they hang in the closet. The laundry bag is large enough to allow for the Slick bags to loft.

I store most of my gear in plastic totes down in the basement. I stack them on a table or shelving with some duct tape on the ends for labeling of contents.
