Storing waders

I have 1 pair of breathable and one pair of neoprene waders that I would like to put in storage. Would placing them in a plastic storage container cause any damage to them by folding ?

Don't know about the breatheable waders, but neoprene you don't want to fold. That's why it is recommended that you hang them up as not to cause leaks.

I have never heard any warning about folding waders, neoprene or not, so long as they are completely dry. When you buy neoprene new, they come in a box, folded. I would wash them by hand with Ivory snow and then rinse them well. Dry them inside out as well as outside out thoroughly. Fold them loosely and keep them somewhere cool and dry and I'm pretty sure you won't have any problem.

Maybe there is something about folding neoprenes even when dry, but as I say this would be news to me, which of course means nothing since you must keep in mind that I have no idea what I am talking about.

Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!... Our brethren are already in the field! It is in vain... to extenuate the matter...but as for me, Give Me Liberty or give me death.

Instead of folding them, try rolling them up.
