I hung up the tool belt and grabbed an apron. Like other reviewers I like the way it hits your shoulders instead of across the neck like the old shop aprons. Honestly after the first week it becomes part of you and doesn't bang into the table saw or workbench the old tool belt did. Couple of suggestions for the Mark II, Loose the hammer holders they catch on things, make the top pouch with the label on it have a velcro closed flap, either make it in two sizes or add an extra inch or two to the length.

If you are looking for a toolbelt, or shop apron, this is the product. It's well made and has plenty of pockets to keep stuff ... could it have more? Well, I'm sure it could but actually there is no more room to put any!
This is a definite upgrade from a tool belt. I always found the tool belt to be slipping off my hips, always needed adjustment and more often than not was pulling my pants down as well. Very uncomfortable.
This apron holds everything my tool belt did and more and it's comfortable, supporting it's own weight over my shoulders, and my pants stay up!

I have had it a little over a week and am still trying to train myself to put tools in the pockets instead just laying them down. I'm a big guy and had to extend the back strap a couple of inches. Other than that it's great. My wife likes it because my t-shirts don't need pretreating anymore

Awesome apron. Quality made. Right # of pockets in the right places. One reason I chose this one: it does NOT have mesh bottoms in any pockets nails and screws get caught or slip through. Soft, comfortable material. Straps carry weight on shoulders, not neck. Would buy another if I ever need one. Highly recommend.

Wanted to add to the other excellent reviews details about the shoulder straps. A vertical strap connects the center of the waist strap to the center of the neck strap. It does a good job of keeping the weight on the shoulders and away from the back of the neck. Overall a great apron and much more comfortable than the tool belt it replaced.

This has been the best shop apron I have ever tried and I have tried quite a few. It is incredibly comfortable, has ample storage/pockets and is sturdily enough built that even my buddies in construction stopped riding me about wearing an "apron" instead of a "tool belt".
I plan to by a second one for whenever this one wears-out (which looks to be many years down the road) in-case it's no longer being made.
