I moved down to MedellĂ­n, Colombia for the year, and, in hopes I might do some fun snow climbs at some point (optimism), I brought my puffy, 30 degree down bag, and pack with me. Unfortunately, being that it's always warm and very humid, all have begun to develop a bit of mold. Now that I'm working for most of the daylight hours, putting them outside in the sun isn't much of a possibility either. Anybody have experience with this kind of thing? Tom Mulholland

When I used to guide on the gualey/New river in West Virginia (Which is also a very wet/humid place) I would have the same prob. We would call it the "Mank" Other than sunlight i would treat my shit by mixing/ diluting some bleach(doesn't take much) with hot water. Be careful with the puffy may be a little sensitive. If you live indoor or have down time. Invest in a cheap dehumidifier and it will help dry your stuff faster. gunter
