Not a well made (or laid out) product
Posted September 5, 2014
Was very disappointed in this product - I had bought an older model Rockler apron that worked very well. This product uses very flimsy straps and the "broad shoulder" strap[s might be adequate in China but not here in the U.S. I prefer pockets that can be closed rather than the open bellows type that are on this model. I use this product at the Post Office where I work as it holds the tools that I need to perform my job - unfortunately since I do a lot of bending and squatting some of my smaller tools pop out the pockets. I may have to go back to Duluth which uses a heavier (and hotter) material.
A bit small

I ordered this apron to replace my older Rockler Apron that I got about 3 years ago. I couldn't find my older one on their web site anymore, so I thought I'd try this one. Not near as nice I'm afraid. First off it's much smaller. I'm tall - 6' 3". My old one comes down to mid thigh. This one barely goes past my belt. Would have been nice to see the actual measurements of the garment on the product page. The strap in back doesn't have enough vertical adjustment for tall users. The denim is also lighter weight than my old one as well. It does have a lot more pockets on it. One big issue: The pocket on the upper chest is positioned rather low on the garment - see the picture- meaning when you bend over to pick up anything on the floor - the contents of this pocket fall out on the floor - every time. I wouldn't recommend it if you are 6' or taller. The old shop apron was a superior product to this one.
Difficult to snap.

Vertical back strap is too short thus causing the apron to ride up towards ones middle waist. This causes small tools to stick you in the stomach, tools to fall out of the top pockets, and it is to short covering the front of the body. The horizontal back strap is sewn in place making the snapping end too short so if you elongate the snapping end then it is too loose if the strap is left long otherwise if kept at the length needed it is difficult to snap.
