I use one of Rons sil Trailstars for ground dwelling, that just gets crammed into a stuffsack
For long term storage you can mostly likely loosely stuff it into a pillow case or something of that size. While you do not have loft to be concerned about, you want to avoid creases that hit the same place every time you store it. Crease can wear and compromise the waterproof qualities. For trail use... stuff it or skin it and stuff it into your pack.
I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
