Sleeping pad
I store it on top of my sleeping bag with the valve open. I only fold it or roll it when packing for a trip.

I wipe it down with a mild soap solution as needed.

My routine:
Un-rolled with valve left open

I carry a patch kit

I un-roll my self-inflator pad and sleeping bag as soon as possible.

Then just before hitting the sack I may add a little extra air to the pad.

Regards, JJW

the prolite 4 is stored unrolled with valve open.

the Big Agnes IAC is stored semi-inflated (super soft) with the valve closed. since this isn't a self-inflate variety, if I store it with the valve open, it just goes flat which I feel may compress the insulating fill.
