Frogg Toggs Pro Action Suit Review

Any fisherman has felt the wrath of mother nature. After all, rainy days can be some of the best fishing weather, as well as some of the worst. Frogg Toggs realized this and captured a niche market with their line of lightweight rain gear.

In depth:
Manufacturer: Frogg Toggs (link)
Size: Kids to Adult (Small – 4XL)
Weight: 11.5 oz.
Type: Lightweight Rain Suit
Cost: $49.95 – 59.99

Weighing in at a whopping 11-1/2 oz. jacket and pants set, this rain suit is meant for people on the go. It features a 100% Waterproof, 100% Windproof, breathable material. The jacket, pants, and bag combo are made out of a patented process of three layers of polypropylene material with a center layer of micro-porous film. Available in 4 camo patterns, as well as khaki, gray, cherry, black, and royal blue, there are many choices for the buyer.

According to Frogg Toggs, the pores of the suit are 20,000 times smaller than a drop of rain. This is what allows it to be breathable, and keep you dry at the same time. The hood is conveniently tucked away in a zippered pocket in the back of the jacket.

The artillery to help anglers fight the weather.

In order to keep the stitching from leaking, Frogg Toggs has came up with a unique idea. They actually have a patented seaming process that eliminates needle holes and possible water entry. As seen below, the white material is sewn in with the jacket.

Sealed seams is another small detail that makes this work so well.

Performance: While doing another review, a bad storm started to roll in, and I was soon caught in a nasty downpour. The conservation police were on the scene when I arrived at the ramp, and about a dozen other boats were sitting ducks on the lake. Luckily for me, I was one of the few who had a rain suit handy.

Every anglers arch nemeis.

Application: Within seconds I had the whole suit out of the protective bag and on my body. The pants took longer than the jacket to put on, but the pants had zippered legs which made things much easier. I went from exposed to fully protected in about 20 seconds. The suit easily withstood the rain and I stayed as dry as possible while try to drive safely back to the dock in the middle of a pouring rain.

When not working his heart out on websites, e-commerce, and programming, Branson like to enjoy time on the lake. His best times are spent with friends trophy bass hunting in Southern California.
