frogg toggs® Claims Title of ‘Budget Pick’ by Backpackers.com for Ultra-Lite2™ Rain Jacket
November 16 2017
ARAB, Ala., Nov. 14, 2017 —frogg toggs® knows a thing or two when it comes to rain gear, point-proven with the latest accolades by Backpackers.com. The undisputed leader in lightweight, breathable, affordable rain gear has just been selected as the ‘Budget Pick’ for its Ultra-Lite2™ Rain Jacket.
Designed as a package rain jacket, this rain gear product is constructed from an ultra-lightweight, waterproof, breathable, non-woven polypropylene construction. The patented bi-laminate technology with "welded" waterproof seams and unmatched sweat free breathability is a great value in affordable rain gear. The compression of this jacket allows it to pack down to a "storage pocket" size and is perfect for backpacks, stadium seats or golf bags.
“Providing our customers with dependable products that withstand the limits of the environment while making it easy to pack and care for is a huge focus for us,” said Will Fowler, director of marketing for frogg toggs®. “We are recognized as a leader in our industry and its praises like this from Backpackers.com that really help us prove that to our customers.”
The Ultra-Lite2 fabric has a two-part technology system. First, the outer layers consist of DriPore Gen 2 film exposed directly to the elements, making this fabric the lightest of all frogg toggs materials. It trades a fraction of its durability compared to other frogg toggs fabrics for a wealth of pack-ability and a windfall of weight reduction. Next, the inner layers provide a weight and performance matched blend of exclusive nonwoven fabrics designed to promote airflow and breathability while offering a smooth, soft touch when worn.
As a primarily gear recommendation website, Backpackers.com developed the “Budget Pick” award as an annual recognition across various categories catered to its audience as a guide for highlighting the best-of-the-best products available. Awardees are chosen on a research-based selection process harnessing the power of reviews from across the backpacking world and seasoned experts. Recommendations are formed with purchasers’ wallet and needs in mind, as well as style and real-life scenarios.
