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.
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.
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.
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.
As an avid FT owner since 1997 when they were made in the USA….they were the best raingear made for motorcycles ever….when they started being made in CHINA they leaked in the crotch and zippers. For the price that I paid back in the 90’s (PA102)they were worth the price in gold….apparently there was a change in managment that caused the raingear to a cheaper made product made overseas. I am guessing since the chinese had cheaper laber meant cheaper products. I have thrown my FT’s in the garbage can and DO NOT RECOMMEND a frogg togg ever again!! If you choose to buy them you will be wasting your money and I recommend a Hefty garbage bag for weather protection!!! Good luck in your search but stay away from this company, it is not recommended.
I totally agree with Bstevens. My first set of Frogg Toggs were perfect. They felt like paper but would keep you dry all day and night and very breathable. They were of course made in the USA of *DURA/VENT fabric by Kappler. Unfortunatly after many years of excellent service the mice got to them while stored in my boat. Now they can not be replaced at any cost! I purchased a new version and they are of a very inferior material. The new model #pa 102 feel like thin rubber, leak and sweat you like you are in a sauna! I have searched everywhere including online but to no avail. Such is life.
