Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Storing Salopettes, long term impact

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I've always just hung my salopettes up in the cloakroom on a peg at the send of the season but apparently this causes the elastic in the braces and elsewhere to stretch and you end up looking like a snowboarder.

I've seen this on Amazon, would it be a solution for summer storage?

I hang weights off mine precisely for this reason. No one wants to look like some kind of ski-mo gimp Laughing

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Good idea, it saves ironing your salopettes before first week of the season to get nice sharp creases down the front.

While I have experienced some issues with the elastic in the braces stretching while hung up over the summer I find the shrinkage that occures in the waste band to be more of an issue.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Well, I am a snowboarder, so I have to buy my salopettes a year before I need them and store them as you suggest until the elastic stretches and they become suitable for snowboarding.
It's a real faff to make myself look like a snowboarder which is what I am in the first place.
If only they sold them ready done for snowboarders. Laughing

In the off season I just use mine for ferret storage. And during the winter I use them for snowboarding And ferret storage, which certainly helps correct your stance.

I've seen a recommendation to remove the Goretex layer in the summer and store that separately, preferably in a cool, dark environment.

For the appropriate depth of grungy aroma, screw them up unwashed in the bottom of your board bag over the summer Very Happy

I'd have thought the ferrets would get too hot in them in the summer?

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Their constant playful fornication allows for the circulation of fresh air. Faeces and urine are collected in the side pockets, Dune style.
