I purchased this set of Frogg Toggs so I would have a top & bottom rain set for wearing at home, while going to get the mail and such. For $20ish, they looked to be a decent set. The material is a type of plastic that has a somewhat faux suede feel to it. It's thin and lightweight, and pretty quiet (quieter than PVC or oilskins anyway.) The material seems strong enough. Some reviews complain it seems fragile and easy to rip, but I tried ripping a hole in it with my finger and a good bit of pressure, but it didn't rip (I could probably put a hole in it if I tried REALLY hard.) It would probably get torn with anything sharp, such as thorns and sharp rocks, if you're going hiking. Some complaints: The pants are long and have no elastic gathers to keep the bottom from dragging on the ground, so I have to fold the pant bottoms up (or maybe hem or cut them, but can't be arsed.) And of course if I fold the bottoms up to keep them off the ground, I'll get water collecting in the folded cuff. Would've been nice to just have some elastic gathers here. Second, no pockets, and no access slits to get into your pants pockets underneath. And guys, you'll have to drop your Frogg bottoms to go pee as you don't get a zipper with this low price stuff. Oh well :) And no draw string on the pants, means they're gonna be sliding off a narrow waist if you get the wrong size or lose weight! I have only worn them once so far, and had no problem with them staying up, but I'd prefer a draw string to keep them secured. Overall, I'm happy with them, they're cheap and they do the job. They're perfect for tossing into the car in case you need to change a tire in the rain, or for walking to the mailbox out on the rural roads. They're durable enough for this price point, and certainly out-perform those really cheap dollar-store plastic bag type disposable rain ponchos!
