Im building one like Wraiths, 3 of us riding, boots and gloves that is the perfect dryer for us. Now I need work to slow down a bit so I can get to it.

I've been using this one for a few years. Highly portable:

I've never had a need. If my boots are wet at the end of the day, I just take the liners out and hang them over the back of a chair near a heater overnight. The odd time I've used the hairdryer in a hotel, that we before I clued in to taking the liners out...

I lay out my stuff in front of the gas fireplace as soon as I get home. But I have been considering getting something anyways, especially for boots. Saw this one in a recent Harbor Freight circular: Four Post Boot and Glove Dryer

Combine it with the 20% off coupons they always have floating around, and it seems pretty reasonably priced: http://www.harborfreight.com/digitalsavings.html

It works for us ok, since we have 3 registers nearby to eachother. It is nice that i don't have to worry about batteries, or electricity.

I've used these with a lot of success. I have a dc outlet in the trunk of my car so by the time I get to the mountain (30 mis) they're dry and warm. The only gripe is that the wires ran straight out the back and it puts pressure on them until they eventually break. It looks like newer models have the wires running out the top to correct this issue.

Silica packs


I steal them out of electrical cabinets that we install at work, it works awesome! They are pretty large bags, they work great for months on end!

Well this was a total surprise. My uncle got the boys a cool unexpected gift for Christmas.
Each boy got one now I don't need to worry about drying all our gear. They can put them in their rooms and out of sight and dry. Way cool and thankful
