Apologies to the folks at MLD...
Clearly it's catching on, I'll have to ditch the overtroons.
Frogg togs are fine breathability wise, better than most I found. Durability is nonexistent though. I got a(nother) hole in my backside sitting on a wall first time I wore the trousers.
I've got several pairs, and depending on circumstances I still use them - mostly on multiday + cold weather + wet terrain - were wet trouser bottoms would be very grim.
I picked a set up in a shop in Ely Minnesota a few years back, I'd heard about them before but never found any to buy over here, they were camo so I never bought them but they looked a bit snaggy I thought
I got them on ebay for about £20 delivered from the US. Yeah they are quite 'snaggy', but they are also very weak, I can tear the fabric between my thumbs. Definitely not something I'd rely on for more than a few days low level backpacking. They are very light though.
'Just in case' jobs then?
My friend wore his quite a lot and had not trashed them; not sure what he took to the Wind Rivers this summer as it did not rain so nothing ever appeared from his pack...
i promise I'll never watch another upskirt video on youtube again.
Hmm, I've seen a few people saying they're lasting a good while, but they must really baby them. Others have said they don't mind because they are so cheap to replace.
Froggs toggs. PCT Blogs - I've read about how inadequate they were come Washington state rain.
Sadly I'll not get that far....but then I'll be sporting Haglofs not Toggs...
Frogg's toggs. The worldwide leader in breathable lightweight blah blah blah. Please!!!!
Has anyone used / have thoes rain kilts some come in cuben fibre. I have often considered them or making one, but cant get over the fashion statement
I know some boys last yr had some cuben ponchos made that they used as tarps, bashes as well in gr8 smokey mtns. The feedback I received was very good.
However this was a forest trail,bushcraft type use.
Things that should be confiscated at customs:
& that's just Zpacks.
You could just go for a aarn pack balance load front and back and get their rather fetching rain cover
But that fellas luved it in tasmania. He's got a devil up his kilt!
Pahhhhhhhhh i've dated worse
That Aarn cover makes a Packa look sensible
Such a talented designer too.
My silnylon one weighs the same as the cuben ones from zpacks and mld and doesn't sound like a crisp packet so not much point.
I wear a silnylon rain kilt all the time. Because I sit down with it, I do not have to worry about the abrasion issue as much as I would with cuben fibre. Mine came from ULA and it is very comfortable but not very pretty. Every time I see a photo of myself in my rain kilt, I cringe.
