Not quite sure I would do that. I recall a story from a tactical aviator to the effect that, upon the advice he had received from a crew chief, he had ''emergency clothing'' consisting of a civilian shirt, slacks, sox and undies vacuum packed by the safety systems folks into a single bag that he carried in his flight bag where space was at a premium, just in case he might have to do an unforeseen and unforecasted overnight somewhere. Well, a year and a bit later, the crew chief advice did pay off, as he and his crew got stranded in a small village due to inclement weather. After checking in at the local hotel, he finally cut open the bag and extracted his clothes. Trying as hard as he could that evening, he was never able to get rid of the well encrusted wrinkles that developed through the process and time spent in the bag.
