Chota Mukluks

Hi All,
Yesterday I saw a message on the North Shore Paddlers Network BBs regarding Chota Mukluks that led me to believe they aren't much good if you wet exit. The message indicated that they fill up with water pretty bad. Since I got some Chota mukluks for christmas, I'm a little concerned about there use. I understand that there's no way around water infiltration but I thought I would ask other user's what they think. I have yet to use them but I have tried them on with my dry bibs and find them more comfortable than any other cold water footwear I have used. I guess my biggest concern is warmth, are they so bad that the water inside never warms up?
