Frogg Toggs Pro Action Pants - 2012
- 1” Waistband with adjustable locking shock cord
- 1” Ankle band
- 8” Zipper leg opening for easy on and off
- Easy access pass-through pockets
- Expandable 4” back rise for added protection
Note: These feature bullets are from Frogg Toggs; the pants do not include the pass-through pockets or 4” back rise (whatever that is). We’ll assume this is a typo in their marketing materials.
This rain gear is pre-sized to be worn over motorcycle riding gear so you don’t need to select a size larger than normal. As you can see, the chest/waist measurements listed in the chart for any given size are quite a bit larger than normal and that is because they are estimating the measurements you’d see if you measured yourself OVER riding gear. Here is a size chart from the manufacturer:
Here are additional sizing tips provided by Frogg Toggs for men:
- Mens Frogg Toggs pants run large. 99.5% of all of our exchanges and returns are due to the MEN’s pants being too large.
- On the sizing chart pay close attention to the height and weight.
- If you are a MAN and are straddling the fence between two sizes then always go with the smaller of the two sizes.
- Do not upsize to fit over your under clothing as this will likely cause your pants to be too large
Our Advice: After trying on a few sizes, we concur with the advice offered by Frogg Toggs… buy the size jacket you’d normally wear in clothing if you plan to use the rain gear over protective riding gear. If you are buying this rain gear to just wear over street clothes, then buying one size down in the jacket would be appropriate (buy the same size for pants since motorcycle specific pants don’t add much more bulk than ordinary street clothes).
Our Two Cents
The Pro Action jacket and pants by Frogg Toggs are a great choice for those needing just the bare basics for the occasional wet weather. The jacket and pants of this model are sold separately, but here is the rundown on both: The jacket and pants are made of the same basic material. They call it DriPore, but to give you the idea, it feels very much like a rip stop shipping envelope (Tyvek material). It feels tough, but they are flexible and should breathe a bit better than plastic. The pants are a simple “sweat pant” design with elastic at the waist and ankles. There are a couple short zippers at the bottom of the ankles to help you get them on over boots with minimal fuss. The jacket is about the same story… just a basic shell design with a hood built into the collar you can use under your helmet to keep water from getting down your neck. There is a storm flap over the front zipper to shield it from water spray.
