Any feedback on Frogg Toggs Road Toad Rainwear

I don't want to be so constricted with only riding in fair weather. I like to take chances on days when it is calling for possible showers. I've been caught a few times in the rain. Does anybody use the Frogg Toggs and what do you think about them, or is there something nicer for the price. They sell them for about $45 at a shop right by my work.

KM is right, good stuff for the price just tape up your right leg with elecrical tape( to keep it away from exhaust) below the knee and they'll last quite a while .

I love love love my set.. of course I would love anything after riding from Columbus Ohio to Snow Shoe West Virginia in the rain wearing only a pair of denim shorts, my helmet, a wife beater, and boots (Not smart, but I was angry and proving a point)!


Anyway... hope you get them and enjoy!

With rain gear, I've had more problems with the left leg getting too close to the exhaust.
I wrap a small bungee cord net around each of my calfs to keep things from melting, as well as keep the extra material from flapping in the wind too much.

Why don't they make Frog Toggs with built-in velcro fasteners on the arms, legs and chest so that you can get into them easily and then tighten them a bit so they don't flop around so much.

I'm getting ready to go on vacation (in the cage) to Myrtle beach next week. I'll pick up a set when I get back. Thanks for the comments.

frogg toggs makes some specific to motorcycles and they are called road toads,although I don't how they are set up,I bought a River Road for 32 or35 buckson clearance that do have pasic snaps down the leg with a Velcro strap at the bottom to tight them around your ankle.
