    Big Shout Out to Will

    The thread I started about rain gear revealed that wmfowler who looks in on this site daily is with Frogg Toggs and he put a link to their website in a post at Ironman's request , Thank you for that . I looked at their site and learned they have Boot's also , So I reached out to Will to ask if they have any wide sizes or if what they have would work for those of us that God used a wide foundations to stand his work on (Big Feet) He sadly had to inform me that they don't , But the older style that they no longer sell were wider and he would go out to the warehouse and let me know if they had any still in stock .
    He did look and got back to me , Sadly they were not around anymore , But the fact that he took the time to do that for
    me ,to go that extra step very Speaks highly of him and Frogg Toggs .

    So again , Will ,Thanks for the extra step




    Sorry should have posted it in Off Topic , Can the Mod's move it

    I have been in waders all of my life, 75 y/o, and I would have to replace my waders every three years. The cheap ones or the pricey ones, it didn't seem to matter. Then I started buying Frogg Toggs and then they would last me for 5 - 6 years. I too have a wide foot but I buy the waders and put a wide wading boot over them, no problem!

    Hi Will,
    lets see if you can help me out.

    I'm a bigger guy at 5'10" and 260lbs and my problem is my ass.

    I need a larger size rain set with pants or bibs that have room to bend over or squat without the seam or fabric ripping.
    I've had at least three sets of Toggs, Bulls and Toadskinz, and the pants always rip out in the ass when I bend or squat.
    This is with buying the 3X pants, and 2x should be enough.
    Just normal fishing clothing underneath, light shorts or pants, nothing bulky.

    That and after a few uses the jackets always seam to leak around sleeve's seams.
    I'm not washing them, just folding/rolling to stuff back in stow-sack.
    That or they develop spot leaks in random places, and I can see spots of daylight through the fabric when I hold it up.
    Never had a set of Toggs make it through one season.

    Sure would be nice to know if I can expect your Pilot series or something to hold up before dropping the extra cash on'em.

    Thanks,
    Chile

    Just wanted to let everyone know that Will is good for his word.
    Took care of my needs, sent me a set of their Pilot series jacket/bibs to try on and confirm sizing, movement and etc.
    These are nice gear, really like the interior fabric and it's breathability.
    10x better than their Bullfrogz and Toadskinz, of course they cost more too, but worth it.
    Especially with the nice discount offered.

    Thanks Will, excellent customer service.

    I've these at work with me today.
    I'm in/out of my truck/trailer in this cold pouring rain but I'm warm and dry.
    I'm delivering freight, lots of bending/squatting.
    No sign of these splitting or tearing in the butt.
    Much better fabric and construction.
