Just got my first float tube, need suggestion on what to store it and carry it around in. Some hiking, not much.
Thanks

Mine came with shoulder straps to carry it on my back. If yours didn't come with them, im sure it would be easy to put something together

I keep mine fully inflated and packed, stored upright in my garage on 2 points- then slide it into my hatchback car or strap it to roof within 15 minutes when ready to go. Saves bladder stress of inflation/deflation, saves surprise from undiscovered leaks when arrive at destination, saves time packing/unpacking the pockets, saves forgotten equipment and lures, etc. Use back straps when hiking if it is inflated, but watch out for thorns, fish spines. Lower the pressure by 30% if exposed to sun/heat or driving to higher altitudes (mountains)and raise the pressure by 30% before launching into cold water.

If you will be storing or transporting it deflated, it is better to roll it into a bundle and tie it than to have bladder creases with folding. You can use a carry bag for transporting while deflated or a plastic storage container for long term storage.
