Reputable boot dryer?
Is there a good boot drying fan on the market that someone could point me too? im tired of drying my boots using balled towels and paper towels just to have them still wet in the morning. and info would help alot.
I have one that i bought at canadian tire, work well
i have a dryguy boot dryer and it works great. i think its like $90 or $100 new, which is incredibly over priced considering it's just a fan, heater, and cheap plastic pegs to put your boots/gloves on. But it does its job great and has held up for what i think'll be 4 years this christmas. it has a cold air and heated air setting which is ideal if you have heat moldable liners or leather gloves that shouldnt be exposed to heat all the time. probably the best and most useful skiing related gift ive ever gotten.
Take you liners out of the shell as soon as your done skiing and set them somewhere warm/with good air flow. I do this and as a result I haven't needed a boot dryer. It makes a big difference too. If I ski all day and leave my liners in that night they will still be pretty wet the next morning.
I just picked up some dryguiy circulators this year. Work great, nothing too fancy, just dry your boots. Picked them up for 25 on amazon
take your liners out and stick them by a fire/radiator/something warm,
wipe the inside of the boot with a paper towel, you still get moisture around the plastic and that milldew stuff on them
boot dryers are not really worth it just for at home imo, luckily I have a big boot dryer thing at work in the ski shop that I use but we still have to clean out the inside of the boots and get the gunk/moisture out
