Peet original multi vs advantage boot dryer?
« on: November 26, 2017, 07:48:02 PM »
Looking to make this purchase finally.  After the first three days of late archery elk my boots are still wet.  I said I was buying one last year at the end of late season and forgot - not this year!

My question is does anyone have input on which is "better".  I would prefer the ability to do two pairs of boots or boots and gloves at the same time.  Just never had one of these deals so I'm not sure if the "Advantage" version with the fan is the right way to go or not.

Thanks for any input.

I have the double boot dryer it's so awesome. Girlfriend got it for me for Christmas and I can't believe I never had one. Helps with boots smelling musty and socks stinking. You can cover up one side with a book when only doing one pair of boots and it seems to blow a little harder on the other side when you do this. Then if you have gloves or two pairs of boots sometime you can do them both. I would go with the double. You can bring it on road trip hunts to do your partners boots and your own for the next day.

I have the portable 120/auto plug in, but I think the propane one would be really good for long term hunting camp.  :twocents:

I have three of the original, two pair of boots, dryers and one of the advantage dryers.  They are mostly used for ski boots, liners, and gloves.  They both work extremely well and not sure I could pick one over the other.

For me, one of the things I really like about original Peet dryer is it's silent and when we take it on trips you don't have to listen to it running, just plug it in and forget about it till morning.  The advantage dryer isn't overly loud but it does make enough noise that it's annoying to listen to in a hotel room.

The Advantage dryer runs on a timer, which can be good and bad.  Sometimes, when the item you put on them is really soaked, even on max time, it'll shut off before they're fully dry but that typically doesn't happen.  For those that are forgetful, the timer is a good thing because it shuts off on its own.

I don't know how long the Advantage dryer lasts because we've only had it for about three years but I had my original Peet dryer that I used nearly everyday, for over 20 years before it died.

Also, I'm not sure Peet actually makes their Advantage dryer themselves because I've seen multiple different units that looked exactly identical to the Advantage dryer but under a different name.  Maybe they do, but I kinda think it's an item Peet subcontracts with to just put their name on it. 

Regardless, of which one you get, if you've never had one before, you'll definitely appreciate having it once you get one.

The timer is sweet because I can put my boots on and go to sleep or leave and know it's going to turn off. I like the sound of the fan to sleep to in a hotel but I sleep with a fan at home. Couldn't imagine not having a timer actually.

I've got the original and the camp propane version. They're both excellent. The Advantage sounds like a great product.  :dunno:

I have the original and love it. Itís still going strong & Iíve had it well over 10 years- I donít even know how long Iíve had it. I donít see any advantage or need for the timer. It doesnít hurt anything for it to work on your boots longer than necessary.
