    Comments about Duluth Trading Shop Apron - Improved Fire Hose Bib Apron:

    I'm using this for work on the interior of my mountain cabin. I like the pockets that "shed" sawdust. That's always been a problem no matter what I was using to access nails and screws. This feature helps alleviate that particular issue. Solidly built as well.

        Much better than a tool belt. The apron offers protection and doesn't pull your pants down. Some of the pockets have web-like material that lets the sawdust fall through.

        Interesting, but not the best

        By ORBlackFZ1

        from Beaverton, Oregon

        About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

        Pros

        • Looks nice

        Cons

        • Difficult To Use
        • Wears Out Quickly

        Best Uses

        • Standing Only

        Comments about Duluth Trading Shop Apron - Improved Fire Hose Bib Apron:

        This is a fairly decent shop apron depending on what you are doing. Most people have listed the pros of this apron, so I am going to list some of the cons.

        I have been using this apron in my woodshop for about six (6) months now for 3 to 5 days per week. I am an retired engineer that builds furniture as a hobby. Here are a few of the problems that I have found:

        1. Notice the photo with the screwdrivers in the center pockets? This does not work for anyone that has to bend over or stoup down. Do I need to say more? So, these pockets are only useful for anyone that stays standing.

        2. The mesh material that is in the bottom of the pockets is a great idea for keeping sawdust from accumulating, but mine has already torn from keeping a 6" square in it.

        3. Putting the apron on is quite a "dance". The way the shoulder and waist straps are connected does not work for me. My previous apron, had a shoulder/neck strap and a waist strap that were NOT connected. It was simple to put on and take off.

        4. The side pockets are great for pocket knives, small squares, etc. but don't squat down, because they are easily pushed out of the pockets and fall to the floor.

        I had hoped that this apron would be a longer term solution, but I will be purchasing another one of my previous aprons, since it lasted over three (3) years with more tools in it.

          I use the apron in the basement. It will hold almost anything and keep it handy. It,s great on ladders short and stays out of the way when you climb.
          Keeps my clothes clean.

            I NEED A GOOD H.D. APRON, THIS IS IT. GOOD FEATURES. THE STRAPS ARE A LITTLE HARD TO KEEP STRAIGHT AND THE SAWDUST DOSE'NT FALL THROUGH THE POCKETS. I HAVE TO BLOW IT OUT WITH AN AIR HOSE. OVERALL A GOOD APRON.

            Comments about Duluth Trading Shop Apron - Improved Fire Hose Bib Apron:

            I love the mesh bottoms in the pockets. That is the main reason I ordered the apron.

            The straps could use a re-design. Maybe an X shape back to keep pressure off the neck, and better adjustment for strap length. They keep loosening.

                Comments about Duluth Trading Shop Apron - Improved Fire Hose Bib Apron:

                I am only 5'6" and 38" chest and this apron is a bit big on me. I have to have the neck strap shortened up so much, I can just get my head through it. There is an additional strap that comes off the neck strap, that hangs down (in back) and I can't figure out what that's for, it is adjustable.

                My favorite thing in addition to the mesh bottomed pockets and ALL the pockets, is that it has a hammer loop on both sides! No one makes a better apron. There are fancier ones, but not I've never seen a better one for actually getting work done.
