Winterizing Figs

I have seen a number of discussions regarding the traditional wrapping of f ig plants in northern areas. Apparently the goal is to minimize rapid freez ing and thawing and to keep the plant dry. I made an attempt at this last W inter but it did not seem to have any effect on the amount of dieback, so I wonder if anyone has actually tested it by covering only half of their pla nts?
