I know a lot of people like frog toggs and swear by them, but after my wife got all wet ( and thats a cold wet by the way! LOL ) in the wrong area, by sitting on a rain soaked seat. And her new white blouse was all of a sudden colored ? Don't ask her opinion ! I'm taking her down to our local sports shop that sells hunting supply's and all types of rain gear. Thats where I got mine, and I love em. Gander Mountain is the name.
Great store, quality stuff. I also use them as an outter garmet for cold
weather. They take up less space than chaps do. :wink:
I'm with Mike (Trikeman) on that. My wife and I have gone through some very heavy rains and never had a problem with getting wet. And my wife uses them to stay warm when the temps get a bit brisk in the mornings. We have had a set for 2 years. Hers are still working like they should. Mine ripped a bit by the pants pocket access area, so I'm getting both of us a new pair prior to the summer. We're headed for Nova Scotia in July and I figure we might need them.
I wouldn't recommend anything else to keep off the rain or cold wind, though.
My wife and I both bought Frogg Toggs last summer. Got into a real downpour in Minnesota. Both sets of pants leaked at the seams when setting on a rain soaked seat. I checked them out in a pan of water at home later, they both leaked. You can actually see light through the seam if you look closely. I haven't contacted Frogg Toggs about this but plan to soon. They may have had a bad run of pants at one time.
We have had our's for years. In fact we went down in one set in 1999 & they were destroyed but the cloths underneath never showed so much as a scratch.
When we got the new ones they leaked at the crotch, It was a bad batch & they replaced them in short order after we contacted them. You will get water down your neck if the collar isnt tight.
the seat on the 1800 is like setting in a
bucket of water

stocking feet (had to cut the feet out)
