I have a dilema of storing parts of my BOB. I was looking at my tent, therma rest matress and a sleeping bag over the weekend. The Thermarest is folded, rolled and stored in its carrying bag in my backpack. I unrolled and inflated it this weekend, also unpacked my down sleeping bag and pulled tent out. I keep them cleaned but have noticed that the tent smells quite tenty, the Western Mountaineering took quite a while to puff up and the Threma rest has a crease down the middle of it from being stored in its sack. Recomendations from the factory on all three of these items say to keep them unpacked and stored hanging or flat until they are going to be used. This will add to their useful life. My question is do you keep your pack ready to go or do you keep these items out, stored near and spend an extra 10-15 minutes packing to bug out?
