I have plenty of gear and I live in a small apartment. I am planning to buy an outdoor closet to put on the balcony to get some extra space. Here's a sample to show you how it would be like.
I would like to know if I can stock some of my gear out there so that it won't get ruined not even in the long run. Just to give you an idea I left my skis in a similar circumstance (it was out on the balcony, not in a closed but in their own case) and they rusted a lot, in only one winter.
So, I would of course everything indoor if leaving them out would reduce their "life expectations".
But perhaps something (carabiner? backpacks?) can be left out without any damage.
Here's what I own.
- Skis accessories: skins, bindings, ski crampons
- Ski boots
- Mountaineering boots
- Rock climbing shoes
- Plenty of other climbing gear (gri-gri, silent partner, ascenders, and other gimmicks)
- Ice screws
- Ice axe
For instance. Will a silnylon tarp lose any of its features (elasticity, water resistance) if exposed for a very long time to high humidity? And the like.
Thanks so much.
