Pub911 is on a distinguished road
I've used the rubber ones with the slit in them that I'm sure you've seen all over the place. The slit lets them breath. I keep tape to a minimun (around the recessed nipples that the stays go through and around the part that forms around your spreaders) and I think that's allowing for moister to esacape and air to flow. The ONLY issue I've had is that the tape eventually unwraps, but this is an easy fix once a year or so.
