Silica packs alone won't do much unless the lens is kept in an air tight zip lock bag or container. The silica packs would just be absorbing moisture from the ambient air. It is always a good idea to use your lenses often to keep fresh air circulating and the mechanical parts moving.
Yeah, I do use them... sorry, I thought I had made that clear.

I guess I'd be a bit reluctant to pull a lens out of a cooler that had Tooheys, VB or XXXX all over it in bright colours. But I'm a bit like that
LOL, nah these are plain black
