be careful not to force them. The best is to place in a separate bag.

If you are going to walk in wet environments or in snow...

apply a small application of waterproofing agent (do not use grease). It is recommended to use gaiters or over-boots if you are going to be in the snow, whether it be low, middle, or high mountain.
