    Just curious as to where and how everyone stores their gear.

    Anyone made a storage area at all. I use those Rubbermaid totes and store everything in my basement. It's unfinished and very dry. I would love to build a small outdoor shed storage area though. I figure garage smells too much with car exhaust and all.

    I keep my stuff in bins too. I have two double unattached garages. 1 holds all the stuff that has gas engines, the other is for my bow stuff and other things.

    I have probably 5 bins all the same with labels on the side of each saying what each bin is for.

    I have mine in bins that I store in my closet. When I build my house, I will have a room in my "Man Cave" dediated to storing all my gear.

    We have a "hunting room" in our finished basement. Can't call it man cave as I may just have more "gear" than he does! All hunting clothes are stored in Rubbermaid bins. Odds and ends hunting stuff is on a shelving unit or closet.

    I have my deer and predator clothes in bins. My Waterfowl waders and fishing waders hanging along with all other hunting clothes in a 12X12 room in basement. I have a dehumidifier going to take some of the must smell out that basements get. Put a lock on the door so don't have to worry about my kids friends wondering. Works great for me.

    I have a Man Closet, it is too small to call it a man cave I can hangout in. I store clothing and other scent-sensitive gear in rubbermaid tubs. Eveything else is hung on hooks or on shelves.

    I have large plastic bins in basement and also a smaller one in the truck so safety vest etc won't pick up scent en route.

    I keep my clothes in large zip lock bags stored in plastic totes. Stored in a section of my basement.

    Right now in Plano air tight bins. They have an o-ring seal and no holes. They are in garage which isn't best space but I plan on building an ozone room this year.

    My buddy built an ozone closet last year, the thing is awesome. I just store my gear in tubs and treat them with an ozone generator

    I leave my vest harness and 3d bug camo in the garage where nary a gas vehicle is ever parked, nor a can of gas. Nothing in there but bushels of corn, hunt gear, and freezers for meat.

    Everything else is in rubbermaid totes (as so many others have said).
