    I decided to post this under fishing since I know alot of guys who fish wear them. I went to the Clemson TCU game last night and it poured down rain the whole 2nd half. I was wearing my frogg toggs and didn't get wet at all but this morning I set them out on the deck to dry out and the pants kinda shriveled up. I don't know if what happened could be considered melting but they wrinkled up all the way down the legs. I haven't tried spraying them with the hose to see if they're still water proof but my Dad says they might have done that since they're black. Has anybody else had this happen??

    I've never heard of anything like that happening before. All I've heard is nothing but praise and they've kept me dry plenty of times. It's like the middle layer of the material shrank and the outside and inside just bunched up on top of it. I don't know if it was heat or not but I won't be letting my next set dry in the sun... and they probably won't be black.

    No problems with mine. I keep mine rolled up under my backseat.

    Check with the manufacturer. maybe they will have answers.
