    I store my down in a mesh laundry bag. My IX UQ is just rolled up. I never stuff that:

    You could do what I did to my Shop.

    PTAC

    and add a

    Control Board

    Its a bit expensive but has worked flawless for me. Although I should say mine was free!

    Storing your UQ

    I just hang mine on a regular coat hanger. There is a handy little D-ring on the UQ that I hook on the loop of the hanger so it can't slip off. And I just fold my TQ in half on the hanger like a pair of pants. I really like the idea of the garment bags though... I could see me having a different garment bag for each season in the future when I have the money for a bunch of quilts... I want a second job to support my gear addiction but then when will I actually have the time to use all that new gear!?

    Conundrum...
    Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendour of achievement are but experiences of time.

    For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision; And today well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!

    Storing your UQ

    I bought a moisture absorber at a gun store to put in my gun safe. When the color changes, it needs to be recharged. You do this by placing it in the oven for a time (instructions included.)

    Just another option.
