I don't assume any balun is water proof. I don't use the boot. I apply Scotch 2228 tape with an over-wrap of vinyl electrical tape, to seal the coax connection. I then secure the cable so that the sealed connection is above the end with the twin-lead. The Idea is that water will drain out, not collect.

The Winegard TV-2900 has been my 'go-to' balun... but I'm not sure if it has been OEM'd by more than one manufacturer.
