Easy on the neck.
The apron helps distribute weight to the shoulders, unlike single strap aprons that put all the weight on the neck. Great design!

Why Did I Wait So Long
This is one of those shop tools that, once I was using it, hand-to-forehead and muttered "why did I wait so long?". This Broad Shoulder Apron is a perfect fit. Snug in all the right places but no binding anywhere. After safety glasses, it's the next thing that goes on. It is easy on and easy off.

Good price. Excellent value.

No Pressure
I love this apron because there is no pressure on the back of your neck even if you have it filled with screw and tools.

Michael T on Aug 17, 2018
I have this apron and I can't even fit a regular pencil in the pencil pockets, much less a carpenters pencil. The pockets are too small. Has anyone else had this problem?
Kristoffer H on Dec 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased my apron about 6 months ago and I love it. I have been looking for years for a shop apron that did not hang around my neck. I often wear T-shirts and the rubbing is very annoying. This apron solves that problem by distributing the weight across the shoulders. I use # 2 pencils and they fit the pencil slots fine. I love it and would recommend it to anyone.
My husband has a larger waist (51"). Will this apron fit him comfortably?
Janie S on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Janie. I think it would be a tight fit. Also if he is tall, I think the pockets might be too high. I am 5' 10" and I would like the pockets to be a little lower. I have the cross back apron which I rwally like. It is longer and pockets lower. However I think the waist might be a tight fit also. If you have a seeing machine you might be able to add to the waist strap to fit better. Hope this helps. Kevin
Are these aprons washable?
Duff M on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes, we are a retired community woodworking guild of over 800 members. we purchase several hundred of these and the longer cross back aprons. they work well.
Is this apron made in the USA?
Ralph T on Jan 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it is made in China
Are the shoulder straps adequately padded?
Matthew S on May 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think they are. I use my apron all the time and it is fine.
I am 6'6'' and 360 pounds im not the one size fits all type of guy LOL but is anyone close to my size who hast this apron?
William P on Jun 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Based on my size on 5'9" 150 lbs this apron would not fit you. It is an excellent apron for working around the home shop.
Not every one has less than a 54" waist, I need to make an extension for the quick release buckles. What is the correct size for the existing buckle so I can correctly match it up to make an extension?
Deron K on Dec 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The end is about 1 11/32 wide and about 3/8 thick. However I think you could remove one end and use it as one end of the extension and use what ever size you could find for the pieces of the other end and the apron strap you removed the other part of the buckle from
