How should I care for and store my luggage and travel packs?
Much the same as with most of your outdoor gear. Good quality luggage and packs, like what Paddy Pallin sells, will give you many years of faithful service. But only if you look after it. Be sure to never store your luggage wet, and keep it stored away from direct sunlight. It’s normal for bags to get dirty, but giving grubby luggage or packs a clean will keep them in service for longer. Never machine wash luggage. Often some water, mild soap applied to the outside with a sponge or soft brush is all that’s needed. If your bag is really dirty, soaking it in warm water will help. A specialised cleaner like Nikwax Techwash is the recommended solution for cleaning most of your outdoor gear.
