love it
Now I am a small woman so this apron is actually very good for me. I would assume a very large man may not find it not full body coverage. Love all the pockets. I will use it for word working but also in my art studio. Could not beat the sale price.

Perfect
I have always wanted a good apron. I am a larger guy around the middle. This fit just right. It keeps me from making too many steps. My legs are not what they used to be so this helps me get my small projects done with ease. I recommend this product!

A more comfortable fit. This one sits on your shoulders and lets you carry things that may not seem heavy until you dangle them from your neck.

Sharen M on Dec 10, 2019
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
Would this fit a child 3 yrs old?
LINDA C on Dec 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The one I bought was for an adult male. Customer service at Rockler should be able to advise you on there products.
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.
How deep is the top bigger pocket, want to see if my phone will fit?
Fordman on Sep 28, 2018

Are the shoulder straps adequately padded?
Matthew S on May 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mine is not padded at all.
Is this apron made in the USA?
Tucki on Jan 27, 2018
