Frogg Toggs Road Toad Rain Pant
Didn't last 30 minutes
Bought these pants last year so that I'd be prepared on the few days that I get caught commuting in the rain in sunny Phoenix, AZ.
Today was that day. So I happily put the pants on and road 30 minutes to work in mild-moderate rain.
Got to work and was all wet in the crotch. Disappointing! Called Frogg Toggs and was told "these are fabric and not waterproof - only water repellant and not designed for sitting in pool of water for prolonged time". What? Really? Darn... in the trash they went... Don't waste your time or money on these for riding. They won't do you any good.

This Pants are a very cheap and a good solution.
Hi for someone who does not want to get wet this pants are the choice because they look pretty well and they are very well build and also cheap, but if you want a very nice piece of clothes this are not your solution neither your best choice, but for me they did the job i have them in my bike just in case i need it at any time, very veeeery light but they dont look much shock resistance so when you wear it you got to be carefull.
Also you should notice that this pants go over your clothes so they fit very baggy. I hope this review is helpfull for someone.

Can't complain for the price
5'10" 170lbs, medium fits great over my pants. Little baggy, but that's okay. They pack pretty small and are easy to toss into my bag in case they're needed. They fit over my boots pretty easily. They seem to allow air through, which could be good or bad. At first I thought they were leaking, but then realized I was dry, it was just cold from the rain.
They're a bit short, so they don't cover my boots and come up a bit when I'm riding. Wet socks are annoying, but something I can deal with. In heavy rain, they'll soak through in places where water can pool, like right behind the gas tank, which is an unfortunate place to get your pants wet.
They're a cheap pair of rain pants that are easier to pack than my massive waterproof overpants. They don't do a great job, but it's better than nothing. For the price, I'd recommend them.

Works great. Air flows, water doesn't.
I had the opportunity to use this product on my very first ride after receiving them. I was thrilled to find that they really keep the water out - I was in a driving rainstorm - and let the air flow through.

Good Gear to have in your bags
Kept me dry riding thru 2 Arizona monsoon storms. Fit well over my riding gear with armor. Do not "size up", designed to fit over riding gear. So far very satisfied.

I'm 5'9" and the medium pants fit well even over my uniform. I love the reach thru pockets. Very helpful. The legs have a zip up side too which makes it easy to put on over your existing clothes and shoes. Very breathable and keeps the rain out for sure. Excellent product, definitely recommend.

Great product, well made, right features
These keep the water out while still being breathable and comfortable. One tip - throw a plastic shopping bag over you boot before sliding your leg through, it could avoid tearing the material if any part of your boot gets caught or snagged on the inside of the pant.

Great for the price, no complaints
A simple over pant rain pant, great for the price. They have pockets slits, may see some leakage there in heavy rain, but for the price and ease of packing (through into saddlebags), recommended.
