    I'm another plastic bin guy. I had to buy a storage shed just for gear...almost holds it all too...but not quite.

    I get the black/yellow bins from Home Depot. Each bin holds a quilt nicely, if I need the room, I put a set per bin. Still leaves it mostly lofted.

    I use those hanger's you get from the dry cleaner when you have them clean something like a comforter. Basically the normal wire hanger, but the tube portion is about 1"-2" diameter.

    This is info is good. I've been looking for better ways to store my quilts. I like the coat rack idea, too.

    I use tyvek garment bags and a regular wire hanger with the quilt hanging over a 2" diameter cardboard tube I threw on in place of just wire... The bags I'm using now came from Nordstrom, who was willing to give me 3 for free when I bought my last dress shirt from them. They have a version that will zip up in half to reduce the amount it hangs down for the sake of slightly more compression (in case you have other stuff on the floor of your closet, as I do). You can get them from any store that sells suits too - Big & Tall, Macys, Men's Warehouse, etc... some are just more stingy than others. There's also few options on Amazon but you can't beat free if you're already making other purchases.

    Oh, and hello forum! Long time hanger first time poster.

    I hang them over my weight rack (smith station). It prevents me from lifting weights, but I am so good looking that it doesn't really matter if I get fat. If I was this good looking AND in shape, it would probably really discourage other men.
    You're welcome, Stockholm.

    Paper towel roll is a nice inexpensive solution, thanks. I just hang from the suspension lines over a hook from the ceiling of my gear closet.
    The Pine Barrens tree frog can be found in southern New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, south-central Alabama, and along the Florida panhandle. One of the last strongholds for this species exists in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.

    I use a cotton sack and a nearly destroyed mesh type laundry bag for mine. I had some extra christmas tree light holder things from 3M that stick to the wall and come off without destroying anything. They hold the bags up near the top of the closet out of the way.

    Keeping mine in large synched up laundry bags in the garage works for me
