    Comments about Duluth Trading Bib Apron - Best Damn Shop Apron:

    I am a Machinist and I wear this apron ever day now, I got tired of staining my shirts and pants with oils and coolant from the machining process. The material that the apron is made out of is durable and wont let oil seep through it, yet it is still light enough to wear all day. What really keeps me wearing this all day long is suspender style shoulder straps that place the apron on your shoulders not your neck. That has been the down fall of other aprons for me because you start sweating and your neck gets very irritated from the constant rubbing. I also like how the Duluth Apron clips together on the sides for easy access and no need to worry about fiddling behind your back trying to tie a knot and hoping you got it right. The clips are also very strong once you clamp them down there is no need to mess with them for the rest of the day. I will be buying another Duluth Apron for home use while I do gunsmithing. This is a working man's apron and you cant go wrong buying this one.

    Comments about Duluth Trading Bib Apron - Best Damn Shop Apron:

    This is a quality product. Suspenders are well made and very adjustable. For my purposes, could use a 2nd or 3rd top chest pocket. Chest pocket is sized for a cell phone, not much more. I really like the 4 deep side pockets. I would buy again and highly recommend. Gets a bit hot in summer weather but thats a trade off for the thick fire hose fabric.

      This is an awesome woodworking shop apron. Wife got tired of me ruining my clothes when working in the shop. The apron fits great, looks great, built like a brick house and does the job right!
      I am going to get a classroom set of them for my wood working students.

        Comments about Duluth Trading Bib Apron - Best Damn Shop Apron:

        I bought this to save my work clothes from getting oil soaked from machining in my shop. So far it has worked well and is comfortable to wear with the wide straps. I like the placement of the side pockets because metal chips and filing do not find their way into them. Clips are strong with no issues of slipping off. I have yet to wash the apron, but expect no problems the way its constructed should hold up for many years.

            I work as a toolmaker and I use this apron at work. A micrometer pocket would be great. I am very pleased with the quality and attention to detail of this apron. I can not comment on the durability as I have only used it a few months but it seems that it will last a long time.

              This was a gift and I love it. I use it with my saw stop and it's comfort and ease to throw on is what I had complained about with other aprons. My previous one attached only at my neck and would pull on my neck as my day went on. The Duluth is lightweight and water proof.

                  I heat my home with wood, and cut and split my own firewood. Normally when using my splitter, my pockets will fill up with bark and chips, and my shirt takes quite a bit of abuse. This apron covers from my chest to my knees. Doesn't bind when I move, and the suspender-type straps are comfortable. The Fire Hose canvas is tough and durable, perfect for this type of job. My clothes stay clean, and no more chips in my pockets when I get back in the house!
