Frogg Toggs Waders – Yes More than just Rain Gear

Last updated on February 3rd, 2024 at 02:45 pm

Sometimes we find ourselves in a fishing situation where either the water is too cold, or we simply don’t want to get wet. You need something more than just wading boots or shoes. A good pair of waders can go along way to keeping you warm, dry and fishing. I’ve tried them all over the yeas. The original boot footed rubber coated canvas waders, the “form fitting” neoprene and the more modern “breathable” versions.

Technology has come along way, and waders are no exception. There are a number of high quality wader manufacturers, and Frogg Toggs is one of the finest. You may be thinking, “frogg toggs®, I thought that was rain gear.” Well, that is where they started. Lightweight breathable rain gear that was easy to pack and kept you dry in the heaviest of downpours.

Well, that was 23 years ago, and while frogg toggs® still makes the highest quality rain gear, they have expanded into waders and footwear. They are applying the same technological advancements and innovations to their line of waders as they did with their rain gear.
