The DryGuy Force Dry boot and glove dryer is a vast improvement over the air only boot dryer I have been using for the last 25 years. By introducing 105-degree heat along with air flow the Force Dry has cut my boot drying time in half. The heated air does a much more thorough job of fully drying boots, shoes, and gloves without causing any damage. By getting my equipment fully dry I no longer have to worry about the buildup of mold or bacteria and the associated smell.
Articulated arms that also extend allow boots or shoes to be dried in a variety of positions.
Using the Force Dry is as simple as plugging the dryer in, moving the dryer arms into position, extending them if necessary, and twisting the timer dial to set the dryer time. I usually set the timer for 90 minutes for boots and 60 minutes for gloves.
The fairly compact size and weight (3.5 lbs) made it easy to bring on several two-week long ski trips this winter. I have even used the dryer to preheat my ski boots so they are easier to put on. Priced at a reasonable $50, this is a piece of equipment that will go a long way towards keeping your boots and gloves dry and ready for use.
