What are the advantages of vacuum-sealing?
The most common enemies of stored items are dirt, mildew, insects and water, along with oxidation and ultraviolet light. Oxidation causes discoloration and accelerates the spread of any stains present in fabric. Vacuum-sealing drastically reduces the effects of oxidation and retards growth of mildew. Most importantly, vacuum-sealing compresses many items and saves valuable storage space.

Carry the bag vertically (zipper up) to minimize stress on the closure system. Hold at or near the middle of the bag and store the bag vertically (zipper up) or lying flat.
