Frogg Toggs Hellbender: The Beginning (3.3.14) + Orvis Streamline Wading Boots

I finally received my (correctly sized) Frogg Toggs Hellbender wading jacket priority mail today.

I ordered it on the 25th of January, a Saturday. On the very last day of the range of days that I'm supposed to receive the jacket, I see that eBay says it is "Undeliverable As Addressed."

I contact the guy, and he doesn't reply. The package goes down to San Diego, and then finally back to the seller in Wisconsin.

I finally have to file a case, and the guy finally replies, saying it's not his fault.

I finally get to where he ships the package back, and when I finally receive the package, I open it up, and lo and behold! He sent me the size Small, the WRONG SIZE!!!

So, after receiving his word that he'll refund my money for the return shipping, I shipped my Small back to him Priority.

Finally, after FIVE WEEKS and 2 DAYS, I receive the jacket. Now all I have to do is get the money for the Shipping...

the PRICE???
------> $67.99, a lot of headaches, and 37 days.

I really, really do like the jacket. It's got a lot of pockets, adjustable hood (with brim), a rod holder (with velcro setting), 3 D-rings (placed perfectly, 2 on front and one on back for magnetic net), and neoprene cuffs! It's waterproof, windproof, and breathable!

This review and the reviews on Amazon sold me on it.



Oh, and I just got my Orvis (felt) Streamline wading boots, so we'll see how they hold up in the surf. Nick bought both the felt and studs, so time will tell! If they don't work out, I'll probably end up using them for the streams anyway, since I've fallen quite a bit with the Cabela's brand wading boots...
