Re: Rain Gear, Not Frogg Toggs
I've had a set of Frogg Toggs for about 5 years and have had no problems with them. I carry them for those days when you get the "Chance of Rain" for the weather forecasters.
When I first started this thread I had just finished a google search for Frogg Toggs and checked out several vendors that had feed back from customers. The comments I was reading were saying that the seam were coming apart after just a few uses, fittings were coming off and the suit was not as water proof as it should be, or words to that effect.
This was from more then one person on more then one site, hence the thread.
I don't remember which vendors, or which model of suit I was looking at on the web. I also called a vendor that was recommend by members on this forum and he told me that he didn't carry them due to the same concerns. (If you would like his name PM me).
I was thinking that since Frogg Toggs has expanded as much as it has the quality control may have gone down from when I bought my first set.
After posting this thread I kept digging. I found two different models of Frogg Toggs that had good reviews, Road Toad and Leep Frogg. both have reflective piping and some of the reviews were from fellow riders. They had good things to same about them.
Hoping that the quality control has improved and needing something quick I ordered a set of Leep Frogg's off of Ebay. If I use them on the trip I'm going on next week I'll update this thread with my impressions.
Update: One of the vendors with negative comments was Bass Pro Shop. The suit model is Signature Bull Frogg Rain Suit
