    PSA: Geardryer is in stock

    Just got an email this morning that the new Geardryer is in stock. It's been at least a year since they had any to sell.

    Geardryer.com

    I'm unaffiliated but my neighbors have an older version and it is fantastic cuz their boots are always warm and dry...

    Have you not paid $900 for a good blow job?

    Wow. Nice looking product but they need to scale up and get their costs down. I'd buy one for like $300, not $900. That really shouldn't be more than $100 in parts.

    Two hair dryers for $25 should do the job.

    Why is their website so dark, I thought the screen brightness on my monitor needed to be adjusted.

    pretty confident I could build something similar for 1/9 the cost that would push twice as much air

    Completely derailing this into Techtalk - apropos DryGuy, does heated air affect boot longevity? I've had a Chinook one for well over a decade that still works and uses ambient air. It needs to be left overnight but now that I'm used to it, I have always wondered about dryers that use hot air and the impact on plastic/cork.

    I've been using the travel dryguy in my boots for a long time, I pretty much have to use them, my feet sweat A LOT. I almost always leave them on overnight and no issues with factory liners or intuitions.

    Ok ok engineer here. So check this out:

    I pull my liners out of my boots after skiing, and voila dry in the AM. Patent pending.

    Same, but I use one of the little $40 dryers if it was a really wet day. Liners always come out of the boots though.

    Maybe I'd feel different about a $900 dryer if I lived in the PNW.

    I just bought one of those little portable dry guy things and thought I was more pimping. Now I feel so... inadequate.

    Same. They seem to last about 2 years before they burn out, but at $40 a set, I will be long dead by the time I have $900 invested in those little things.

    The free standing one that's $90 is what I use and the one I have has been going strong for 12 years or so.
