maybe he put them away dry?
Anyway as long as they dry there's no prolem leaving them stuffed.
PA: Presumed they're not wet as either no rain or no wind so never wore them?
FT: thx - that's what I wanted to know.
Might be just me and slight OCD.
Anything in a stuffsack is taken out to 'air' and 'dry'. Even if not removed from drybag.
It's then stored loose till I'll use again

Yes I know it's lazy but I leave my pertex shells in their little bags between trips (unless they're wet). Will this reduce their windproofness/durability? Should I bother to unpack and hang them up instead? Thx.
Does indeed sound like the height of laziness I got into the habit, a very long time ago, of completely emptying my bag post-trip after finding a couple of little passengers (ticks)*. Stuff gets taken out, given a shake and a visual check. Takes 5 minutes, tops.
You could always re-pack again straightaway.
*Not to mention, on occasion, errant bits of food, un-noticed spilages etc.
Trouble no one about their religion;
respect others in their view and demand that they respect yours.
> Pertex is tough. I doubt moisture will affect it much. It doesn't support mildew like natural fibres.like cotton.
Mildew will happily grow on pretty much anything, synthetic fabrics, tiled surfaces, etc. It may not damage the nylon, but it will leave practically irremovable stains.
