Im asking this because I heard that rubber may suffer from ambient exposure. I feel that it really lost its flexibility, got harder to squeeze.

Do you guys keep your in a case or a specific place?

I own the same kind of blower, and I don’t think it has changed much over the past four years. I keep in my camera bag.

But yes, rubber and all polymers tend to degrade over time. I’ve heard this degradation can occur due to sulfur compounds often found in air pollution. Also see this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polymer_degradation
