Handy, very well made.
Handy, very well made. It more than paid for itself in time saved looking for things I would have otherwise laid down.

Good Value
The Broad Shoulder Apron is a great value at twenty bucks. Pockets are large & plentiful. Straps are broad enough, so they don't dig & rub your neck. I think it will last many years. I am happy that my wife suggested that I order it. .

Great upgrade
I had been using a BBQ apron that my kids gave me about 100 years ago. The strap was around my neck and when I put too much in the two pockets that it had I'd end up with a sore neck. The Rockler apron eliminates that problem. It's very comfortable and has many pockets. I especially like the two small pencil pockets at the top of the apron and the 4 at the bottom. I always carry several pencils, #2 and .5mm and a couple of 6 inch steel rules. With my old apron I always had to dig them out of one pocket. Now, each one has a home. The other pockets carry a 2" engineers square and a 6' tape measure. I'm still working on filling up the other pockets. I love this apron. With that, I would have liked it to be a few inches longer. I highly recommend it.

Judith B on Dec 1, 2018
My husband ordered one of these aprons a few weeks ago and liked it so well that he thought that he would like to have a spare. He liked that he had his most used things in the pockets instead of constantly hunting them down.
Roberta L on Nov 30, 2018
Needed a good multi pocket shop apron and it was a great sale.
John H on Nov 29, 2018
I saw a gentleman wearing something like this on "This Old House " and another fine woodworking show. It looked more comfortable than my tool belt I normally wear. So I bought one for myself and the other two are Christmas presents for co-workers.
Sheldon D on Nov 29, 2018
this is to replace an apron that is 40 yrs old. Choose this style for the shoulder support, waist securing method, and the variety of pockets.
Herbert W on Nov 29, 2018
The broad shoulder straps keep it balanced. Quality for the price. Rockler is a great company.
JAMES G on Nov 28, 2018
To see if it is better than a big, bulky tool belt. I really only use the tool belt for a tape measure, square and pencil.

Barbara M on Dec 6, 2018
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 T 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.
