    I couldn't do under the bed. Last week I pulled out the Thermarest mats I keep there...so much dust I could have planted crops on them. Nasty. But they are sitting for months or even a year without use so that matters some.

    I meant, inside my bed. It is like a box.

    How important is open and loose storing for synthetics? I understand compressing down feather is a big problem. Do synthetics behave different if stored compressed?
    (I'm new to hammocks - and backpacking - and have an ENO Ember UQ that I've been storing in the only sack it came with, rather tightly.)
    Thanks all!
    P.S. kind of jealous about that "bed-box" storage photo!

    I use the HG bags for my UQ and full length TQ and hang them in my closet. Have my Yeti, down jacket, down blanket, hang on hangers too. I think the bed he's referring to is called a Captains bed. That's an excellent idea if you have one. Under my bed puts stuff in striking distance of my dogs. Our new puppy would LOVE a chance to chew all my gear to pieces. LOL! Nope.

    As I recall most synthetic quilts, like apex for example, will suffer a bit if you have them really cinched down in a compression sack but suffer less than down would. Stored somewhat loosely they ought to be fine.

    Synthetic insulation loses its R value over time no matter how careful you are with storage.

    My quilts have been loosely stored in cotton, drawstring bags (some that came with the quilts, others I purchased on Amazon) and placed in a container. I keep the containers in the house (rather than the garage where other gear is stored); this has worked well for me.
