This is a short video to show you how I used my Neos Adventurer All Season Overshoes from Outdoor Photo Gear to keep feet warm and dry while in Antarctica and the Falkland Islands recently. It’s not an incredibly difficult subject but it took me a few times to get my head around the process and be able to get this footwear on quickly and out to the Zodiacs waiting to take us ashore.

Hi there, I’m Martin Bailey, and today I’m going to show you how I kept my legs and my feet dry when I was down in Antarctica last month.
What we’re going to look at, basically, obviously you need some footwear. These are Baffin Boots. They’re good down to like minus 70 degrees Celsius. These are my winter weather, insulated boots, that I use anywhere it is going to be cold.
But when you are going to be jumping in and out of zodiacs, or I’m doing beach landings, you want something to keep the saltwater off of these and also to give you a little bit more height.
These are basically what I bought. They’re Neos Overshoes. These are the Adventurer All Weather Overshoes. I bought these from Outdoor Photo Gear. I’ll put a link in the show notes and in the video.
Basically, these are what we’re going to put over the boots. Nice and big so that you can do that. And then to stop water to get in even
