Boot Dryers

9 posts in this topic

I am looking to get a portable boot dryer. From what I can tell you have about three options:

1) Peet boot dryer with base and upright tubes to put your boots on

2)Portable Peet dryer that fits right in the boot

3) Seirus dryer with flexible tubes that fit right down in the boot

The peet portable and Serius seem to take up the least amount of spece to pack along, but do they do a good job?

I have only seen the Serius in Cabela's catalog, while you see Peet in almost any sporting goods store.

What do you guys have and what do like and not like? Not a huge $ purchase, but always nice to buy the right thing the first time. Thanks-

I have the original style standup Peet dryer. I've had it for years. It works great. I've never seen or had any experience with the others.

I built my own out of PVC pipe and use a hair dryer on a low setting. Works faster than the commercial ones.

By portable do you mean one that runs on propane?

I have a standard peet you plug in and its well worth the money. Even if not wet, on cold days it makes a big difference to start with a warm pair of boots.

No, I am talking just plug in ones. Peet makes a style that folds down and allows you to put it into the boot for travel, then unfold it and stick it back in the boot and plug it in. Best to type boot dryers in on Cabela's to see what I mean.

I have had the stand-up peet for years. Nice unit. Last year I bought a Peet portable. I was so impressed I went out and bought another one. Fantastic for traveling.

I'm on my second Peet standup version. They are great. I prefer them to a blow dryer cause it drys the leather boots slower and they stay soft and don't crack.

I have had good luck with the peet boot dryers. i got a different brand a couple years ago for christmas, i am pretty sure it was an instep brand, but i can't find them on their website and i am pretty sure they quit making them, but one thing i like better about mine compared to the peet ones is mine has a shut off switch, and a little tray for any water that drips off the boots.

I don't personally but I work with a few guys that have the portable peet ones and they really like them. I myself have the flex tube ones you mentioned and they really aren't that fast at drying out the boots.
