Very comfortable
I like an apron over a tool belt. This is my third one from Rockler. I’ve tried other brands but like these the best. They’re very comfortable and I have them set up for different projects.

Very comfortable
My husband bought one,said it was very comfortable. He has replaced his tool belt with this. He wouldn’t go back to the tool belt. This apron distributes the weight equally and does not put pressure on his back.

I really like my Rockler shoulder apron even though I have been using a waist pouch for many years. The shoulder apron is very comfortable and has all the pockets and pouches I need \, not to mention that wearing a waist apron has always been uncomfortable and tends to always work it's way down too low .I recommend this shoulder apron to anyone doing any kind of wood work .

Tired of looking for things
I'm getting older and spending too much time looking for the tool I just had in my hand. I have wanted a good apron for a long time so I could keep the tools I use a lot at my fingertips. But we are getting more and more over 90 degree days every year and thought an apron would be way too hot for me (I don't do heat well). I decided this would be the year to air condition the shop so I could work more efficiently and thought the apron would be the next step in efficiency. It's well made, has lots of pockets looks like it would fit a wide range of people (big to small) and the wide shoulder straps should carry a lot more weight comfortablely.

I am always putting my pencils, small glue bottle, and what ever else in my pants pockets or just laying one of them down and then have to search for it. Hoping this will help solve that and for 12 bucks it was a good buy.

Darrel G on Jan 8, 2020
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.

Matthew S on May 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mine is not padded at all.

Tucki on Jan 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you want something like this made in USA, better make it yourself.
