First off, your preventing moist humid air from damaging your insulation. Over time, you will totally kill it's R value.

Secondly, an exhaust fan DOES have a flapper to reduce cold air coming in in cold weather.

So the vapour boot IS important

Maybe Hack's hot air coming out his beak keeps his part of Joisey warm, and all this HVAC technology is not required to be understood

Not expensive, but if you need it, you have to install it.

I've installed a couple hundred bath fans (on the top floor of the house)
and have only used 6mil poly like @CanadianSparky suggested. I'd think
that a boot might be easier for the insulators, but they'd be harder and
more expensive for us........wouldn't they? I like to make things easy
for other trades but this isn't somewhere where I'd worry about it.
