They will last more than two stream crossings vs. garbage bags, are free, are better shaped for feet
than garbage bags and somewhat more durable for a negligible weight penalty..

The OP is complaining of chronically cold feet..even BagTex may not be effective. ;)

The true harvest of my life is intangible.... a little stardust 
caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched
