Yes, I know this has been asked before, but I'd like the best current knowledge you experts can summon up.

Here's my problem: I've found some bandsets I really like, but because of the origin, I don't know if I can count on the supply long term.

How many years ahead can I buy without suffering shelf degradation? Is there a way to store them that will prolong their life? I know the cool dark place thing. Anything else? The freezer?

Help me out, experts.

Similar to you mate, I also keep mine in a zip lock bag and then in a small air tight box. Had some theraband in there for over 3 years still perfect however I only use it now for wrap and tuck ties for attachment to slingshot frame. Much better elastic I use now!
