    Thumbs down

    For years I dryed mine on the heat vent upside down. I figured I'd waste some money on a new surf toy and bought this:

    I have to tell you this thing works great for drying booties and gloves, 2 hours after I put them on they are completely dry. The timer is great just turn the switch for the time you want and it shuts off automatically.

    Just curious....since the universal rule for drying wetsuit boots/gloves is "keep out of direct sunlight and never put in heated dryer", is it bad to place them on the heat vent @ home?

    Also, the boot/glove drying machine looks sick. Is it just a fan running cool air on the gloves/boots?

    Hopefully they never dry.

    The boot dryer has an air only or heated air option. The heated air is less than 100 degrees and I don't believe will have any effect on the boots or gloves. The product info did state that it would not hurt temp. sensitive materials and my observation would agree with that. Hope that helps.

    none of that helped. so do you turn them inside out or just keep them how they are to dry?
