If it is not really cold I have a set of Frogg Toggs that I like.

I've been using Frogg Toggs for years (motorcycle rider) and really like them.
Their light, breathable and you can throw them in the washer, the price is hard to beat too.

Me too cheap and keep you dry. If you have $400 go for the 100mph suit from bass pros.But Im just a broke painter:o

I recently bought the Frogg Toggs from Gander Mtn. The next morning went fishing in a steady rain and temps at 45 deg. The jacket was great but after the first 30 minutes my rear end started getting wet.

Most of the people I know say they are overrated and i agree for the lowers. But I love the way they breathe and don't suffocate you.

If they would just fix that seam in the britches they would be great.

thankfull

Get the best gore - tex that you can because it is bad to sit out in the boat all day soaked to the bone. And it's even worse when it is cold.

I have a Gore Tex Parker that I purchased in 1985 for a hunting trip in NY. I have worked in it during winter months on a farm for 14 years. It is faded and has one hole in it. It is still water proof and warm. Every yr i think that I might retire it, just cant bring myself to do that. Frog togs will get you wet! I carry a set in my boat for fishing partners that I don't want on a return trip. I use Gore Tex because they work. Pro Qualifier is less than the 100 MPH stuff.

PVC raingear may keep the rain off ya, but it makes me soaking wet with sweat!

I drooled over the BPS 100mph suit then I saw a previous year's model at 1/2 price. 3 of us bought a set each and have really liked them for the rain and especially the wind.

Ive used the frogg toggs out on the water and love them. Me and a couple of friends went on a guide trip and half way into it it started to rain. At first it was just drizzle then full blown rain. By the time we got back to the dock the only thing that was wet were the fish in the livewell and the boat. I need to buy my own for fishing

Are you sure it was the seam of the pants that leaked ?? Do you have the bib type pants, or the regular style pants ?? Reason I ask, is that I have a set of Froggs ... and have the pro model (regular pants) and have gotten a wet tush, before. But, it wasn't from the fabric or seams leaking ... it was from sitting :eek: The jacket bunches up, and the pants ride down, leaving an exposed area where water can run down the inside of the butt area of the pants. :D
But, now that I know this ... I'll be a little more careful about how the jacket and pants are positioned when I sit ;)

... cp :cool:
