I'd imagine you'd have to buy them online, Amazon, Northern, Grainger etc.

Probably expensive though, I just use them since I have to take them out of electrical cabinets everyday at work.

In the most ideal world you would want to blow dry air that is below 40F to prevent bacteria growth. With warm air you're promoting bacteria growth until the boot is completely dry.

LOL! I saved that picture a long time ago for when I move west to real mountains.

It's freaking awesome and ironically simple.

We just use the heating vents, turn boot upside down. Place on vent, done. We also discovered both our cars have foot vents for the rear passenger seats (I dunno, we never sit there!) So now we put the boots there and they are dry and warm when we get to and from the hill.

I also use the foot vent to and from the hill. I have found if I warm my boots up prior to heading out my feet stay warmer longer. I don't sweat that much but my boots are usually damp between the liners and the boot itself even if I do not feel the wet. Condensation formed from hot feet on cold sole perhaps? When I get home usually dry on heated concrete floor but they get hard/brittle when I do this but never noticed like shrinkage so I dunno. Never used to dry the boots bc I did not realise they were even wet but went to install J-bars on a liner and they were wet and eek mildew stained and I had not rode in days... On another note I have also tried external like waterproof spray... doesn't work just turned the boots yellow...

Boot dryer talk

If you go the sock route, look at dive shops to source, lots of divers use them to dry out the boots in their "not so dry" dry suits.
They're marketed as "dampire" here in the UK

it doesn't come apart any more then you see in the pic.

Not sure how long you will be in the states but maybe order online and have it shipped directly to your hotel. Then just leave it at the end of your vacation. Just a cost of your trip.

You could use 2 small computer fans and just plug them in and place at the opening of the boot. They are very small, cheap and blow a ton of air. These would fit in your suitcase.

That's an interesting idea. Did you have to wire the plug yourself, or do they come with?


M2M, I used the Hot Ratz driers,.. They were small, have a car plug adaptor, fit neatly into the boot/liner or gloves, blow warm, not hot air, but. You can't find them anymore. They were very cheaply made. (probably why you can't find them now.) I've had to open mine up twice to splice & re-wire them just to keep them running. I go thru all the trouble, cuz, 1. I've already paid for them and, 2. when I can keep them running, they work great. But as you can see, LOTs of other options.

Wrathfull,... that DIY drier rack of yours is just freakin' awesome. Wish I could take something like that with me on my trips up north. You should see my hotel room with everything hanging, propped, or sitting on/around the room heater! Looks like my duffle & gear bag exploded!
