    Storing synthetic quilts

    My down UQ and TQs all store in large bags to maintain loft. I recently obtained a synthetic UQ, Jarbridge from arrowhead's big anniversary sale, and was curious if it too needed to be stored in a larger bag or can it be stored compressed? My IX UQ and TQ are stored compressed with out issue....

    synth you want to store just like you would Down .... synth is not as forgiving as down is when it is compressed for a long time so avoid any long term compression
    synth will degrade after years of compression
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold
