Thoroughly air and dry all gear before storing. Inspect for wear and damage BEFORE putting your gear away. Keep away from light/UV. Storage should be in a cool dry place - like a closet or other inside location without sunlight through a window. Avoid storing your canopy where vermin or insects could gnaw or contaminate your gear. Keep your canopy unpacked in a stash bag if you won't be jumping for long periods of time. Here at JYRO (previously NZA) Headquarters, we use our stash bags made out of parachute fabric, but you can also use an old pillow case.
Remember - treat your parachute equipment with special care. Your enjoyment and safety depend on it. Have a read of our blog article 21 Ways to keep your canopy looking good on further tips and tricks for caring for your canopy.
And our Quality Control Team give their tips on storing your canopy in this video.
