I am in the middle stages of planning a to AK for fishing. Obviously, rain is a consideration.
Here is my plan- I am looking at suggestions
During the day, I am going to be in waders fishing. I am looking at the Marmot Precip jacket for the top. Between these 2, I should be good to go in about all conditions. (yes I understand the layering system). What I am looking at is when I am not fishing and the weather gods are ugly. I really don't want to spend my time in waders nor indoors and am looking at a set of rain pants that wont break the bank but will fill the requirements for the conditions in AK. I have a set of Frog Toggs but I just don't see those working real well. They are great if on a boat or in snag free conditions, I just don't see that recycled newspaper with wax holding up to harsh backcountry conditions.
Any suggestions? I looked at the Marmot precip rain pants and quite honestly, I am not sold on them. I may be way off base though as I have never tried them. I could care less if the pants don't match the jacket. I am looking for something that is lightweight and strong.
I have searched these threads, found limited info on rain pants suggestions.
