    Hate the mesh

    Comments about Shop Apron - Improved Fire Hose Bib Apron:

    I'm pretty sure most of these 5 star reviews are for the old un-improved version.

    The "improved" mesh pockets are a fatal flaw. You can't put anything small, like finish nails, in there. Screws, calipers, screwdrivers, awls, etc hang through the mesh and poke you in the groin when you bend and could scratch finishes. When working in a customers house (or your own) the dust sifts out constantly and leaves a trail wherever you go.

    I had five of the un-improved version with solid pockets over the past decade and they were great. Comfortable, durable, plenty of storage, keeps crud off your clothes. When they stop doing the stupid mesh thing I'll buy five more for the next decade.

      Son, 4'3" 70 lbs, 10 years, loves this apron. He works in the shop with his dad and the adjustability of this apron allows for it to fit him or expand to fit a man. It currently wraps around him and touches in the back, but does not overlap. Length is calf length on him. Perfect. Highly recommend.

      Lots of pockets - None hold nails

      Comments about Shop Apron - Improved Fire Hose Bib Apron:

      I thought the idea of mesh bottom pockets to let the dust fall out was a good one. Unfortunately, not only does the dust fall out but so do all the of nails and screws I like to keep in the large front pockets. I've tried everything from plastic baggies to cardboard lining the bottom. Nothing works to hold the nails from dropping out. Let me know when this failed design flaw is resolved and I'll order a new apron.

      The apron seemed well made, with lots of pockets and holders. Have not used it yet as projects we are working on do not require the use of multiple tools.

        I needed something to protect my cloth and carry tools. This is all of that and more. It is the best apron I have ever used, no matter what the job.

        I would add that I have been an ASQ Certified Quality Engineer for over 25 years, so I believe I know quality when I see it. This is the real thing.

        Buy This Apron!

        from Ladysmith WI

        About Me Professional

        Pros

        • 'hangs' Really Well
        • Comfortable
        • Like The Wide Straps
        • Loads Of Pockets
        • Mesh Pockets No Probled

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Wood working

          Comments about Shop Apron - Improved Fire Hose Bib Apron:

          Before getting this apron I read in the reviews how screws would fall through the mesh in the pockets. For my way of working, that was not a problem as I simply carry the screws in the small box they come in. The pockets are definitely large enough for that.

            everyday use in mill-work shop and for onsite installations. More pockets than you need. once the shoulder straps softened it was comfortable. The shoulder strap buckles DO NOT maintain the position you set - the web slides through the buckle to the end.

              I'm a home DIYer and wood hobbiest. After several flimsy aprons that didn't do what I needed I learned of the Duluth shop apron. For not much more money I got a lot more product. I expect this one to serve me well for years. A contractor I had hired for renovations beyond my skills saw it and remarked that he needed one. My wife and I purchased one for him as a gesture of appreciation for his work quality.
