That way you don't compromise the integrity of your boots which remain dry as Saraha sand.
Interesting idea. I suppose the boots aren't breathing much anyway, based on what they are made of. I tried the vapor barrier thing on my hands once and it didn't go well. They were swimming after about 30 minutes and it was pretty disgusting. I don't know how Neil does it. Or maybe I just sweat a lot.
