Rating: UK Wetsuit/drysuit Dryer
Reviewer: Jim M.  -  View all my reviews
Last year we went to Monterey, on our 2nd morning our wetsuits were still wet and cold when we put them on. It was so cold that we postponed one of our dives until we could warm up our suits. This year I took this and believe it or not my suit was dry the next morning I had no trouble diving. It was great, money well spent.

Rating: Hangair Wetsuit Dryer
Reviewer: Don C.  -  View all my reviews
The wetsuit dryer is a must have if youre in the water on a regular basis. I use mine almost daily for a fresh dry suit every time I surf. I added a timer to mine so I can hang it, turn on the timer for about 6-7 hours and its ready to go when I get up the next morning. Id recommend this to any active waterman for diving, surfing, kite surfing, or whatever floats your boat.

Rating: Great product - works exactly as advertised
Reviewer: Barry S.  -  View all my reviews
I decided to try this product after previously waiting 3 days for my heavy 8mm semi-dry wetsuit to completely dry. This unit had it totally dry in under 24 hours...after about 12 hours it was almost fully dry. Also - the hanger is extremely broad and sturdy - I use this to hang my wetsuit outside to dry under a large patio umbrella even without plugging it in.

Rating: nice product
Reviewer: Andrew Lockman  -  View all my reviews
When I first saw this product I thought it was just another frivolous gadget designed to make a buck. However, after using it I am a believer. The broad hanger provides proper support for my heavy 7mm wetsuit and the built in fan really moves some air. It dries my suit quickly, thoroughly and quietly. The long reaching electrical cord is a bonus. It seems reasonably well made but certainly not indestructible, I am hoping it works for many years. I believe this product is a great way to protect the investment of pricey wetsuits. Reasonably priced, fast shipping, buy with confidence.

Rating: ?
Reviewer: Bryan Wetherby
We have these for our fire dept. It seems that I borrowed them constantly because they work so good. I purchased my own because I already knew how well they worked. The cords are extra long to reach outlets at a distance. I could hang my 7mm suits and they would be almost dry the next day when I used them again. They would be completely dry in less than two days. I would recommend these to anyone who dives.

Rating: Wetsuit Dryer
Reviewer: Donald C.  -  View all my reviews
I received my new wetsuit dryer. Ive used it 4 times now and it seems to work really well. What I did is plug it into a timer set for about 8 hours and the next morning my suit is dry and ready to go. In the wintertime this is crucial, as a lot of times there isnt enough daylight to dry the suit out and after a couple of days in a row of use the suit can get pretty stinky. The price seemed reasonable so Im happy with my purchase and would gladly recommend this to my fellow enthusiasts. The reason for only 4 stars was it took awhile to receive it and it didnt come with any kind of timer, I had to purchase that separately.

Rating: Its fantastic!!!
Reviewer: Jack H.
they say it only takes a few short hours to dry out your wet suit- believe it. the first time i used it with my semi-dry suit was late one evening after a night dive. the next morning, all but the attached hood was dry. im impressed, to say the least. i would recommend this to anyone who hates to put on a cold and damp suit from the day before.

Rating: Surprisingly handy
Reviewer: Joel Scarr  -  View all my reviews
This came free with a wetsuit as I would definitely not pay $50 for a coat hanger (or so I thought)! But, despite my scepticism, it is made by a good brand, seems solid and the fan and cord set-up seems surprisingly robust. The air pressure through the wetsuit can be felt on the arm and leg holes.

Rating: The quick and the dry
Reviewer: Brian B.
Dries my 5mm wetsuit in less than half the time of regular hang drying. About the same noise level as a home computer fan. The hanger shoulders are HUGE - no chance of damaging your wetsuit by hanging it over a thin hanger!

Rating: great product
Reviewer: george barham
we bought these hangers right before we went diving some springs in florida.after an all day diving excursion we returned to our hotel and hung our wetsuits and went to bed.around 200 a.m. i woke up and realized only one hanger was actually working.when i checked the other one,it was working fine.not only fine but my wife`s suit was already dry.so i changed the suits and went back to bed.when i woke up my suit was about 90% dry.comfortable enough.so we were stuck with one hanger for the rest of our dives.no problem,had to change them out but dried both our suits.when back home i called scuba.com and they replaced the hanger.no questions asked!!very professional!!! love this product and would recommend this to anyone who is planning many dives in a row and wants a dry suit in hours! thank you scuba.com!!!

Rating: Gift Idea
Reviewer: Paul S.  -  View all my reviews
In a previous review I wrote about how the HangAir was a great product - very handy. This review was written because I was prompted by an email from Scuba.com to write another review after I bought a second one. This one was a Christmas gift. In other words, I liked it so much I bought it for a fellow diver who uses his drysuit a lot.

Rating: HangAir Very Handy
Reviewer: Paul Selden  -  View all my reviews
ive been using a hangair for more than a year now, so can give a report based on a lot of use. in michigan i dive every week in a drysuit from about september through december, then again once the ice clears until about june, so my hangair stays busy. in a nutshell, this product works as advertisedand it works great. i use it for my drysuit. the inside of my drysuit usually gets damp from condensation (or leaks) after a dive. before using the hangair, letting it air dry always seemed chancy. using my hangair, the suit fills with so much air it puffs out all the way down to the feet, and pours out of the wrists. it now drys in hours, vs. what seemed like days. the other great part about the hangair is that it gives great shoulder support to the suit. so it replaces my other drysuit hanger, making it an even better value. i definitely recommend this product.

Rating: good start, needs work
Reviewer: Deborah L.  -  View all my reviews
the concept is both obvious and clever a fan inside your wetsuit so it will be dry by next dive. i dont know why resorts that cater to divers dont do something about this on a mass scale, as nobody likes putting on a cold, wet wetsuit. unfortunately, this product is big for suitcase purposes, and not very high-powered (no heat, just a little fan), so it takes a while to do the job. get one where the wings fold in or collapse or come off and a fan with a little more testosterone and youve got a winner.

Rating: One of the top must have item
Reviewer: Loan Keefer  -  View all my reviews
I bought this when Scuba.com had it on sale. I was a bit skeptical at first, but after reading all the positive reviews other people had about it, I figured there must be some truth to it. "The proof is in the pudding," and this product works extremely well. My 5mm H2 wetsuit was completely dry after 6 or 7 hours. It is a must have item for divers.

Reviewer: Brent H.  -  View all my reviews
I was a bit skeptical when I heard about this product. I decided to buy it to help with the classes I teach and eliminating the ice cold wetsuit I put on multiple times a day. This has been a life saver in that it begins drying right away and is quiet in doing so. It was a great investment. Thank you!!!!!

Rating: Works Really Well
Reviewer: Melissa Gordon
it was pretty handy last week when we had 3 consecutive days of great waves in surfside, texas! i turn my wetsuit inside out and dry the outside first. then, i turn it back to normal to dry the inside. it does get the suit pretty dry overnight. i will continue to use it this time of year when i need to wear a wetsuit in the gulf of mexico. this was a great (belated christmas) present from my girlfriend. thanks! el jefe

A lot of pluses with this product. Perfect product for the diver who hates a cold damp wetsuit. Easily worth the money for a little comfort. A long power cord is a huge plus and my biggest concern when I purchased the product. Also never pack a wet wetsuite again!

Rating: Best darn thing since the invention of scuba!
Reviewer: Phil K.  -  View all my reviews
I cant speak to the longevity of this item, but so far it is the greatest thing ever! My local Aquarium uses them for their wetsuits (I am a volunteer there) so I bought one for my drysuit. It drys it out in less than 24 hours with no hassle whatsoever. Wetsuits dry in less time since the air can pass through them. I have been looking for a product like this for years, and now I have it!

Rating: Wetsuit dryer is amazing!
Reviewer: Karen H.
The Hangair Wetsuit Dryer was a perfect gift for a surfer at a really reasonable price! Totally worth it! Pros: It completely dries a wetsuit within a half day through a fan installed in the hanger. The cool air blows down through the wetsuit, drying the main body of the wetsuit as well as the legs and arm sleeves. The hanger itself is really nice and bulky and great to use even when the wetsuit is dry, as it provides a wide shoulder area on the hanger so your wetsuit isnt warped/stretched by hanging all the time. The hook on the hanger swivels to allow hanging the wetsuit in a variety of locations. Cons: There are two drying settings: High and Low. High gets a little loud but I usually just close the bathroom door and its completely fine. Additionally, the high/low/off toggle switch is a bit flimsy - its just a little plastic knob that can easily break off.

Rating: Hangair Wetsuit/Drysuit Dryer Review
Reviewer: Michael F.  -  View all my reviews
I have used the Hangair with both my 1mm & 3mm suits - works great. Used it to dry two 3mm wetsuits after late night dives and have them dry & ready for morning dives. Definitely helps keep the suits from getting funky. Only complaint is the size , its rather large - no problem for local dives or sites where I can drive to, but a bulky to take on any trips where youve got to fly. If it wasnt so big (and still worked as well) Id have given it 5 stars instead of 4.
