Stores all hang them that way, although space could be the reason.
Nevertheless, I can't imagine a bag being so fragile or sensitive,
given the use it gets in the woods, as to make much of a difference.

Along the same lines, I've put my bag over a clothes line in
the basement for years. I've wondered about the pressure at the point
of the rope doing some damage (I have never experienced any so far).
