I've used the car jackets for years now also, excellent way to store in cold climate. I've worn out the dessicant in the past and have used oil dry for moisture absorption and it seems to work as good as dessicant....and cheaper. I spread a couple inches out on a cookie sheet, heat in the oven for a couple hours to dry it out and put a couple cookie sheets in the bag with the car.

I'm storing a car for the first time this year with bias plays and going to try these for elimination of flat sporting. Hopefully they help??

I'm going to try one of these this year for the new car. Just arrived today and material is at least as heavy as car jacket and for comparable size is about $100 less than the car jacket. This place is the cheapest I found on the net and offers free shipping.

Looks compatible to the car jacket. Ill bet its an overseas knockoff to the car jacket.

Not completely sure, but I don't think so. Rhino Shelters produces a wide variety of temporary storage buildings out of the same, or similar, material. Producing these jackets would be a natural offshoot of production of those buildings.

I just received one yesterday that I ordered and the material is at least as heavy, or heavier than the 4 car jackets I have.

Guess I'll find out next spring.

Default car storage..

we have been car jackets fans for many years...they work great. Dryer sheets, de-humidity bags and we remove batteries...fuel stabilizer is a good idea regardless of what fuel you have.

Sammy likes our sleeping bags

YEP, sleeping bags a must in the Hudson Valley. Especially when Wilma has a sleep over and has to stay out in the garage with them. I hear he also has a couple electric blankets he uses if need be.
