Storing stinky gear
« on: February 06, 2022, 01:31:44 PM »
I got to the point that I don't want to smell surf gear in my vehicle  This is the the solution that I came up with, Rubbermaid Action Packer:

For now I am mainly storing my booties and less than fresh rash guards, along with misc other gear.  The 8 gal can easily fit the Neosport Explorer boots (and all of my other foot gear).

With SUP/surfboards it is challenging to use storage boxes on top of the vehicle.  I looked into getting a hitch and hitch storage but the price started going up fast, whereas this Rubbermaid Action Packer fulfills the job of keeping my vehicle from getting stinky.
I still hang dry my gear, but put the booties back in the action packer to keep odors down.
I like using limestone neoprene products in the winter as they dry much faster.

I use one of these :https://www.snowinn.com/esqui/therm-ic-dryer-v2-us/137862585/p?utm_source=google_products&utm_medium=merchant&id_producte=11985348&country=es&gclid=Cj0KCQiAgP6PBhDmARIsAPWMq6lYEMaKPa0kRwJzjIOpmJeDgulMNWT-OjFFiBdXRk1z4mhsZZKh_dUaAmEOEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

They work really well, booties dry really slow in coastal climates and bacteria have a long time to grow mean.Those super long booties look really hard to get dry  by just hanging.

I still have to clean mine with soap every 30 sessions or so but zero car stink.
