its something they think they need. Try to find a breatheable jacket without pitzips, even though openning them defeats the pressure driven membrane system. Lots of people think gore-tex only way to stay dry, so feet too. Gaiters and leather awesome combination feet only occasionally damp. I wore GT boots for a few years, they were great boots..but my feet were always wet had to use beeswax on them daily to keep them from shredding after about 10kms. But what ever works for you. Event gaiters, leather boots, patagonia wool socks and a quality durable footbed nothing better that I have found yet.
