I've been looking at rubber boots, and I'm seeing that many of them now have neoprene uppers. I'm thinking the neoprene will not be scent-free. Am I right or wrong?

my lacrosse alpha lites work like a dream. I can smell them though when the sun hits the rubber for too long.

The reason I ask is because I'm also looking at a pair of Irish Setters that aren't rubber. The only reason I'd consider going with rubber boots is to be scent free because I think regular boots would be more comfortable. If the neoprene holds scent, it kind of defeats the purpose imo.

I can't imagine any kind of boots making much of a difference in the whole "scent free" game. Mythbusters sealed themselves into an entire RUBBER SUITE. Completely sealed up. Even had a respirator on. Dog still found them no problem. I doubt 2ft of rubber below your knees is going to do much at all.

Neoprene IS rubber. I like the muck Woody Elite. Some kind of scent mask crap built in. Run about 1/2 size too big in my opinion.
