Amazing company, amazing boot dryer.
I originally purchased from a third party retailer. When fully installed the unit did not work properly and I was incredibly disappointed. I contacted GearDryer directly with photos and a video of the issue. They responded promptly and replaced the unit without any trouble. I was very impressed by their customer service.
The new unit works wonderfully. I live in central Alaska and have 5 kids that are in and out all day long. I hung the unit in my arctic entryway so all the wet gloves, and boots can go straight on. I love the option to make the air heated. I guess there's a theoretical risk for deforming your gear with the heat, but I think the chance of that happening is very low. Maybe I'd be worried if I was drying custom made ski boots or something. All I know is that having this thing is a Godsend. Sure it is expensive but it beats the mess of with multiple floor boot dryer units. And the price of this is very competitive compared to the other vertical dryers I found. I have nothing bad to say about the unit or the company. They stand by their product and I understand why-- because it's great!
