Great apron
I wear an apron everyday at work. I’ve had several types and styles, basically experiencing everything out there. I bought Rockler’s on a whim, while on sale of course, and could not be happier with it. Comfortable and light.

Woodworking Experience:
Durable, well designed, priced right. Straps are comfortable and reduce neck strain. Heavy cotton fabric breathes well to minimize sweating on the stomach.

I needed a new apron, my old one is worn out and I am the type if I don't have a place to put my small tools and measuring items, I lay them down and forget where I did lay them down. This protects my clothing as well as having handy pockets.

Tired of Wearing big Tool Belt
Emanuel D. Z on Jul 10, 2019
I am a retired carpenter, accustomed to wearing either carpenter's bib overalls, or a tool belt. While working in the shop, thinking about future steps toward the completion of that current project, I am forever setting down tools (e.g: tape measure, pencil, nail set, clamps, etc.) and then wasting a lot of time searching for them when I need them again. Hopefully, this apron will alleviate this issue!
Jim G on Jul 10, 2019
need an apron and this one looked good
Jerry D on Jul 10, 2019
As one of the comments stated getting tired of chasing down tape measure, pencil, reveal marking tool and small square and other things i like handy.

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
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?
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 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
BEST ANSWER: If you want something like this made in USA, better make it yourself.
