    winter wetsuit storage

    Anyone got any tips on storing your winter suit so it doesn't get all dried out?

    I feel like when I leave my suits hanging in my closet for awhile they get that dry and rough feel to them. I wash them real good at the end of each season but haven't figured out a better way to store them.

    It's normal for your suit to feel that way after being in storage for a long period of time. Just make sure it's completely dry and not exposed to light when you put it away. I don't store mine on a hanger. It's best if you can let it lay flat, but I just lay it over a well-padded bar in a closet.

    i dry it inside and out for about a week and then put it in a large Tupperware bin in the basement.

    I usually leave it the last place I left it. I never saw much use in going crazy to store suits. Just my opinion

    do you use a special hanger? I used to hang mine but they always got thin at the shoulders from the hanger.

    I never use a wire hanger, I always use the thickest plastic hanger I have (those big wooden ones work too). I haven't had any problems and my suits seem to last forever with regular useage.

    Throw in a little cat hair too for good measure. Collected in a non intrusive way of course. As far as the hanger, I just wrap a towel around a sturdy wooden hanger good to go.
