      The webbing rubs on the back of the neck. I put a fleece pad over the webbing and solved the problem.
      I don't see the purpose of the strap that goes from the neck to the back of the belt. So far, I haven't needed it.

      Carpenter aprons in the store either cheaply made or way too much bulk for ease of working. What i needed was a apron with a lot of packets and places for tools, but not bulky and in my way. Best apron I have ever seen or used.

        I love this product because I don't have a heavy tool belt pulling down my pants. I can carry just about anything in it that a tool belt can.

          I bought this over a year ago so I think I can make an honest review. This has benn the best apron I have owned. I've been doing woodworking for over 30 years and have used many different types. The quick snap buckle is wat better than trying to tie strings together.

          I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

          There are ample pockets for all kinds of hand tools. I make custom knives and this is my go to apron in my shop. cleans easily too. I am going to get another to use as my range apron to seperate different calibers by pocket. Will be perfect for my gumsmitthing hobby.
          I could buy 5 ov them but my wife might duct tape me into one of them and drop me off of thre bay bridge.
          PERFECT ACCESSORY FOR YOUR SHOP TOO.

            This apron has been just about perfect. My husband has been helping our son build his own home. He needed to replace his old one because the strap tore on it. The strap design on this apron is new and comfortable, and the webbing seems sturdy enough. He did suggest that padding over the shoulders would be even better. My husband is of average height, and found the length to be almost perfect. The pockets are just below his waist-- very comfortable when reaching for nails or screws. He has had no trouble with nails or screws poking through the mesh bottoms. His main complaint is the width of the pencil pockets. They are too snug for easy out and back in.

              Comments about Duluth Trading 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.
