I thought about this a while back, but this:

...made me decide not to bother. I store my PLA in their poly bags with the silica gel pouch, in its box (if it has one).

I've never seen any print defects attributable to moisture, although to be fair my oldest filament is only a matter of 4 or 5 months old.

The problem would have to be reconsidered if I were to get into, say, ABS.
