Frogg Toggs Toadz Anura Jacket Review

By | Gear Reviews | No Comments

In the video below I review the Frogg Toggs Toadz Anura rain jacket. I’ve now had this jacket on me for a few rainy day hikes, and have really been impressed with its performance. I would say that this jacket is a step up from the entry-level Frogg Toggs jackets. It features the same material that has made Frogg Toggs famous, but is covered in an extra layer of material that enhances the look and performance of the jacket.

If you would like more information on this jacket, or if you would like to purchase one and support my channel, head on over to:

This jacket features 4 zipper pockets on the outside; two on the chest, and two on the sides for hands etc. It also has two VERY large internal pockets where you could dump all kinds of gear; hand warmers come to mind in particular.

The waist seam has two cinch cords so you can tighten the waist. It also has a cinch-able hood with two pulls where you would normally find them, but also one on the top/back of the head for further tightening.

I’ll be honest that I am always a little leery when it comes to rain jackets with zipper pockets, so to test the pockets, I put card-stock in them before heading out on a rainy hike, needless to say, the car-stock came out bone dry at the end of the day.

I was also very impressed with how lightweight and packable this jacket is. I could really pack this thing down so it didn’t take up so much pack space.

I am a big fan of the Pathfinder 32oz Stainless Steel Bottle & Nesting Cup Set. This is a super rugged cook set for anyone who spends any time outdoors. As you will see in the video, I have put this mess set through the ringer. But this isn’t so much a review video as it is a gear mod, or hack video.

In this video I show you how to make a simple steam basket for the Pathfinder Stainless Steel Bottle Cooking Kit.

Here’s how to make the alcohol stove shown in the video:
