How does everyone store their wetsuits in the winter? I have tried hanging mine on plastic hangers some years and laying down others. It all ends up with the same result....they seem to shrink no matter how you store them! :confused:

Mine go in the back of the closet.

Drysuit goes in a black garbage bag.

I use my all year long, but I store them on a hanger... the longest it sits without being used is during the summer!!

Has this strange occurrence seemed to increase once you turned 35? I don't think it is shrinking suit syndrome. I think it is growing Tex syndrome?

I have found that the amount my suits shrink over winter is linear to the amount of Adult Beverages I consume over winter. Weird how that works.

The good thing is that I can still fit in my 10 year old suits. I just need Elka to help zip them up.

Mine didn't ncessarily shrink as much as the neoprene seems to have gotten thinner...

Hang it up on a good hanger in a cool dry place, they'll last for years
