    Snakeskin: Long term tarp storage

    Just ordered a new set of skins from Kat. How do you all store (long-term) your tarps if you use snakes skins? Do you leave them rolled up in the skins after letting the tarp dry a few days? TNX

    Same here.

    Dry tarp good before storing is key. Mildew will grow.

    Both my silnylon and cuben the same way. dry them, roll up snake skins and the n I stuff that into a small silnylon bag. It just makes it easier than the snakes and ridgelines flopping all around.
