Great Apron!
Love this apron has enough pockets to keep my hobby tools ready whatever I may be working on. The fit is comfortable and stays put in place.

This was a gift to my son.

Looks well made; plenty of pockets for pencils, small plane, screws etc.; wide shoulder straps for comfort.

Very nice
Very nice and convenient to have all those pockets. I did need a little help from the Mrs to adjust it properly in the back but took very little time. Definitely happy I bought it since the one I had only had a couple of pockets.

Perfect apron!!!!
Awesome!! I’m a wood manufacturing student and I use this everyday all day for classes. Keeps all my essentials handy. The small size is perfect. I love the closure with no pulling on my neck!! Being a woman I’m not used to carrying around things in my pockets so this apron has been a life-saver in the shop every day.
Personalized with my monogram (iron on vinyl)
Personalized one for hubby too.

Great Apron, Great Value
This is the most comfortable shop apron I have ever owned and used. I hated my old apron with the skinny strap that pulls down on the back of my neck. This apron rests on your shoulders and has no neck strap. The pockets are generous, well laid out, and very functional. The only issue is that sawdust collects in the pockets, but I can live with that.

Simply wanted to give it a try. Most of my jobs are light carpentry and do not find a tool belt practical.
Dan S on Feb 22, 2019
Most of the shop aprons I use have very thin straps around the neck and shoulder areas which after hours of use cause neck strain... I like the design of this apron and can't wait to try it! It appears to be a very well-made apron.

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
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
How deep is the top bigger pocket, want to see if my phone will fit?
Lyle S on Sep 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have carried my iPhone in it, but if you bend over it will slide right out. I usually wear a shirt with a pocket underneath
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.
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.
Is this apron made in the USA?
Ralph on Jan 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it is made in China
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.
