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

    I really like the design but this thing is to small for me.

    I'm six foot 250 lbs.....I'm a big guy, but not a huge guy. This apron is for medium or small build guys. Why can't you offer one for larger men?

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

      I waited to rate this product for almost a year, because my previous experience with a shop apron left a lot to be desired, and I didn't want to pre-judge. Now that I've used it for a year, I'd say that the ONLY shop task where it falls short is while working the lathe. But I guess that's why several vendors have specially designed protective garments for lathe work.

      The only negative is that the design causes loose stuff to fall from the upper larger chest pocket when donning and doffing the apron. I usually keep a 6" steel rule, a small note pad, and a Sharpie in that pocket, and I find myself picking one or more off the floor every time that I put the apron on. Other than that, it hangs on a hook just inside the shop door, and it's the second thing on and second to last off, whenever I am going to be working in the shop. (Safety glasses hang next to the apron, and they are first and last!

        This is the best shop apron around! It is very well designed, with the pockets on the sides to keep out dirt and saw dust, as well as comfortable. It is so comfortable to wear that you forget you have it on. Very glad I bought this apron!

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

          This apron is better than I expected. The suspender design prevents the pulling and tugging at your neck that most shop aprons do. The pockets are purfectly placed and deep enough form my 8" dial calipers. I use the apron for machining and the oil from this process easily washes out with the use a little spray and wash. I'll be buying more.

              I work in a harsh steel fabrication shop environment and this apron has protected my shirts, pants and body better than anything else I have ever used. Very happy with this purchase.

                    The wife got this for me for Christmas. i normally hate Aprons!! the string around my neck bugs me after a while, not so with this Apron (no strings attached) the adjustable straps and suspender clips are the hot ticket on this setup. very comfortable and it's an Apron that i will wear which makes the Wife happy because she does my laundry that was splattered with cutting oils from the lathe and mill and gun oils and solvents so it's a win win for us.

                            I bought this for my husband last Christmas to wax/tune our skis and otherwise putter around his workshop. Prior to this, he was just wearing a regular apron With pockets in the front for his workbench. He was tentative at first, because the style was so different than what he had used before, but based on a season's worth of ski tuning and other workshop chores, he now LOVES the apron, both for the heavy duty fabric and suspender style
