To keep your Woods sleeping bag lasting for years to come, we recommend you follow the steps:
- Store your sleeping bag in a large nylon / mesh bag (instead of a stuff or compression sack) to maintain the bag’s loft throughout it’s lifespan. Storing your sleeping bag in a small stuff sack constricts the insulation and may be harmful for an extended amount of time.
- When not using your sleeping bag, store in a cool, dry place. If the bag is stored when wet or damp, you increase the chances of mildew growth
- The most efficient way to dry your sleeping bag is air-dry outside, avoiding direct exposure to sun. When drying, turn the bag inside out, this allows for the insulation to dry more rapidly though the lining materials as well as helping to freshening the sleeping bag.
- Run a dry toothbrush over the zippers to ensure the zipper teeth stay clean and prevent them from failing.
