Getting ready to transfer back down south, and just wandering the best way to store my drysuit? Hanging or folded in a plastic container? Will be stored until next spring or later depending on when I get back. Thanks in advance..

I just' hang the two BI's we have unwrapped, occasionally (once a month) coat rubber seals of wrist, ankle and neck w/ Seal Saver.
I like this Dry Suit Seal Saver product best .... cost about 5-6 bucks per bottle vs new seals $$$$.

Mine's 17 years old. I've kept it in a plastic garbage bag. not saying its the perfect way to do it, but will say that I wore it before my son was born, now he wears it too. Still has the same small leak in the back that its always had.

Baby Powder will suck up any moisture avoiding mildew I suppose.

I have no idea the chemicals effect, but it works!
Seals dont dry up, dont crack, they come out like new.

Being in Texas, I store my ski gear indoors when not in use. I found my binding overlays, drysuit, wetsuit and rope n handles all last longer.
