Default How to ruin frogg toggs

Ruined a perfect set of Frogg Togg today. They were smelling musty, so thought I'd through them in the dryer on "knit" or very low. Came out all shrunken and wrinkled up. ****.

Wondering if Frogg Toggs will replace them....

That sucks and sorry to hear it but I'm pretty sure there's something in the fine print somewhere saying "do not put in dryer". I'm not familiar w/ Frogg Toggs....are they just rain blockers or do they help w/ cold weather? Hard to tell from the pics I just googled.

It was 28 degrees when I left for work (on the bike) in Arlington....if Frogg Toggs help w the cold, I just might need a pair of their pants.

They do work as windbreakers as well. I have thrown them on for warmth before, but there is much better solutions. The other night I was out riding though with just a vest on, got caught out late, so threw the frogg toggs jacket on and it helped keep me warmer.

Ask them for a new dryer, that seems like the culprit. Just jackin, try hand washing them in woolite and letting them drip dry. Might end up being useful for the Mrs.

"Wrinkled my frog toggs"........that's one of the better euphemisms for 'shrinkage' I've never heard.
