Very satisfied with the quality.
The apron looks good, feels good, fits well, and is easy to get on and off. I would have no reservations recommending it to friends or any fellow worker.

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.

Neck relief
No more sore neck. I had several other aprons and they all went over my neck and I hated them. This works great and I love the 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.

It looks cool for Dad’s day and can hold things for jobs around the house.
Zig on Jun 12, 2019
I wanted to try one. It looks like it has more pockets than my current one. I hope it’s as good as but more comfortable than a tool belt.
Johnny F on Jun 11, 2019
My husband was interested in a workshop apron with multiple pockets. Rockler had exactly what he wanted and I know the quality of the product is excellent. Happy Father's Day.

My wife and I believe these are the best aprons for price and durability. I use it in the shop and she uses her's for house hold chores and gardening, the large pockets allow you to carry supplies and tools. This makes it useful for all types of chores.

Douglas S on Jul 30, 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
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: 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: If you want something like this made in USA, better make it yourself.
