Looking for some new raingear, looking for recomendations. want them to be roomy to fit over sweatshirts,jackets, . must be tough against rippng and tearing,not be over $100 and most of all must really be waterproof. Was thinking about frogg toggs camo? Thanks Jim

Wase of a good hundred dollars. Had two pairs, one ripped the second time I used it, and the zipper went out on the other the FIRST time....never again:(

I agree with BBG. Frogg Toggs are light and comfortable but tear if you just look at them. They have a new heavy duty line that I'm not familiar with.
I have a pair of Cabelas rain pants that I really like. They have full length waterproof zippers in the legs and a waterproof zippered fly.

Cabelas brand can be bought for under $100 if you catch them at the right time. I have owned a pair for over 10yrs.

Frogg Toggs are flimsy, and HOT AS #@LL.

I second that!!! Make sure you get the gortex washing solution too. It will make your 10 year old gortex last,,,

Carhart makes some really nice rain gear, it's not hot, it's durable and keeps you dry. Live in oregon, we know what works in that department.
