We’ve been in the ‘cabin in the mountains’ market for awhile now, chasing the ol’ ‘work from home while getting back to back to back pow days’ dream. Of course this plan works better when you’ve actually been able to find something, but that’s another story for another day. So, when the folks at DryGuy reached out to review their Force Dry DX glove and boot dryer (as well as their wader adapter) I thought why the hell not as it would be a great addition to the eventual mountain dwelling, and in the meantime useful around the house post-fishing or when snot nosed little heli plays in the snow this winter.

Unboxing the DryGuy is straight forward with just a touch of excessive packaging (the plastic bags over the already plastic boot arms seemed excessive to the hippie in me…).  Lightweight yet slightly bulky (this probably isn’t going in your travel kit) there are a minimum of removable/movable parts and assembly requires zero instruction.  The only assembly you’d ever need is if you want to add the boot extensions for larger boots or the wader adapter, both of which just slide over the shorter vent arms.  From there simply plug in, choose whether you want heat or not from the control panel and BOOM you’re drying.  Anyways, looking forward to getting some gear wet and seeing how well this baby operates (and with any luck not melting any of my stuff in the process….)


Nice box

Control panel. Plug her in, set the timer for up to 180 minutes, choose heat or no heat, and boom you’re drying.

Short vid so you can hear how loud the DryGuy is. I’d say this video actually makes it sound louder than it was in person.
