That would cut down on conductive heat transfer in the same way that double pane windows insulate better than single and down jackets are warmer than fleeces. Plus I never used the drink holder. It's only big enough for two 20oz bottles. In the summer, I take a cooler full of ice/water and about 64oz of drinks.
Foil or not, it works.
