High-concentration ("tropical-strength") insect repellent generously
applied to hair, flesh, clothes and socks kept out the leeches in Taman
Negara and the Fraser's Hill when we were there, not a single attachment
despite hours on jungle tracks, but they might try their luck on your boots.
It's very hot there, even ladies perspire, it rains, and the repellant
washes off, so re-apply frequently.
This has also worked for mosquitoes and ticks whenever we venture into the
tropics or mangroves.
We also wear permethrin soaked clothes, have sleeves down and tuck
trousers into socks, which seems to make a big difference as well.
Perhaps be careful with repellents on your binoculars.
