Never encountered this issue, nor any issue with
storing dry tents in their stuff sacks. I store my
North Face, Mountain Hardware, and Walrus tents in
their stuff sacks all the time. And none of these
tents is less than 15 years old. I have never had a
problem storing them this way. then again, I take
extraordinary care of these tents. Until 5 years ago
when I had my first child, I spent at least 3 nights
(and usually more) a week in a tent, in all seasons,
for well over 20 years. These tents have never had an
issue with how they were stuffed. One tip, however,
never fold a tent. Stuff it. You typically fold
something over and over along the same lines which can
cause damage to the fabric and water repellent
treatment. It will also tent to tear along these
Sleeping bags are different. Always store them loose.
Never in stuff sacks. I tent to use over-sized
laundry bags to store my sleeping bags, over-sized
enough that the bags get a chance to loft.
