At present, I keep my bows in the plastic bags they came in. But the repeated sliding in and out of the long pouch/sleeve in the nylon gig-bag my violin came with is taking a toll over the weeks. Also, a bit of rosin gets on the inside of the plastic bag and then gets on the bow itself. Easy enough to wipe off before playing, but it is a bit of a nuisance.
Besides, I have two bows, but only one compartment for a bow in the gig bag anyway.
So what are some good ways of storing bows between use if one is not going to keep them in a hardshell violin case?

My suggestion, DanielB,,, hang them on the wall in a reasonable humidity controlled room. It keep's the bow bug's away and let's the bow hang straight.
You can see in the upper left corner how I hang mine. I never store my bow's in the case, for one thing when they are in the case so is the fiddle. Out of sight, out of mind I say.
