Should I store my kayak un-inflated and rolled out, or is it ok to store it in the carrying bag? Is there a time limit to storing in the bag? Will folding the kayak for long periods of time degrade the material in the bends?

Leaving it folded in the bag will not damage it over time as it is meant to be that way. If you want to store it out of the bag, make sure it is in a coll dry place. If you want to leave it inflated, let some pressure out especially if where it is being stored, it is hot. Leaving it fully inflated in a hot place can lead to tube failure as the air inside the tubes expand when left in hot temps.
