You just got back from your last camp, threw the backpack in the corner of the room and the sleeping bag inside the closet, right? Okay, laziness spoke louder and you did not even bother storing your equipment properly … So stop being lazy and take a few minutes to store your sleeping bag in the correct way and thereby increase its useful life for time Indeterminate
Some valuable tips:
1. Storage Bag: You should store your sleeping bag inside a large or even loose storage bag. The idea is that the filler (whether synthetic fiber or feather) has room to expand and not become compacted. A good idea is to keep your sleeping bag inside a large pillowcase. Generally, the pen bags come with a large storage bag. Compression bags should only be used when you are camping.Ah! Do not store in plastic bags as it is important for the sleeping bag to breathe.
2. When to Save: Ideally, you should not fold and curl, but stick the sleeping bag “anyways.” Yes! Nothing to bend and curl up cute.If we always fold in the same way, the filling will always undergo stress in the same places, which will damage the material.

Ventilating: After each use, leave the sleeping bag well ventilated and airy. You can leave it open on the tent until everything is stored, and even coming home, allow it to air a little more. This, to avoid washing the sleeping bag frequently, as this will damage the filling.
4. Use a Liner: Whenever possible, use a liner (a kind of bedding bag). In addition to increasing the temperature range of your sleeping bag, liners can be easily washed in the washing machine. So if you get dirty on the inside, do not worry! But your sleeping bag will stay clean longer!
