    Superfly storage

    I've searched but I'm still lost...

    Do I fold it or stuff it in between uses?

    I pack mine away both for storage and use in a set of tarp skins.

    cool. I was dreading trying to fold it back up like it was delivered. It's like a 11 foot map!

    When I bring mine home from an outing ... even if dry ... I hang it in the garage to make sure it's dry then slide the mesh skins back in place and pack it up. Just keep it dry and in a cool place. Don't leave it any place hot ... ie, attic, trunk of car ... just common sense stuff.

    It's a great tarp!

    Mesh tarp sleeves. Katharina at Mountain Goat (outdoortrailgear.com) makes them custom for no extra cost. Just let her know the size of your tarp. They have sleeves for your line or other storage and because they're mesh the tarp will drip dry and weigh less.

    Of course some go to a Bishop bag approach. Both have merit.

    I've always held to the stuff method rather than the fold method. The reason being that if you constantly fold the same line it degrades that part faster. When you stuff it spreads them out. Might be a myth but its easier than folding haha
