It's the age-old dilemma any skier or snowboarder faces after a powder day: either dry your gear next to a wood stove and risk melting your gear, or pile it around the furnace and roll the dice on waking up to soggy gloves and liners in the morninga"better yet, invest in the Gear Dryers Freestanding 12 Boot Dryer and know all your gear will be warm and dry when it's time to suit up in the morning. Gear Dryers is a Utah-based company founded by a couple of skiers and general outdoor enthusiasts who saw a need for a dependable gear-drying system in the outdoor industry. The system consists of a heavy-duty steel unit that's fitted with twelve individual drying ports that deliver 200CFM of warm air to your gear to ensure everything is dry by the time you're ready to use it again. Five pre-programmed dry cycles can be set between 15 and 30 minutes or 1, 2, and 24 hours. And while the system is ideal for drying ski and snowboard gear, the twist-lock port design allows the drying ports to be customized to dry everything from fly fishing waders, snowmobile boots, and work clothes.
