Survivalist Christmas Gift #8 for under $50: FroggToggs jacket

What is it?

A lightweight jacket that keeps you dry. And people at the Grocery store will tell you that you look cool.

Why is it such a great gift?

 Its as light as Tyvek. It looks that thin. But its totally waterproof. I’ve got one of these and it outperforms any other jacket I have, bar none. Plus, its lightweight and packable. So you can wear it as a wind breaker or outer layer over sweaters and shirts.

What are the alternatives?

 A plastic poncho from Disneyland.

What will Santa do if I don’t give this as a gift?

You’ll be soaking wet, and people will tell you that you look frumpy.
