    The straps are made of flimsy materials and are a inconvenience to put on and fasten.I would recommend a Heavy waist BELT fo more comfort and to form up the apron.I expected a much better quality coming from your FIRM

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

      I belong to a large woodworking guild and have been showing off my new apron to other members. Everybody really likes the mesh pockets. My old apron constantly gathered sawdust in the pockets. I did make one addition to the design. I carry a metal 6" ruler in the small vest pocket. I add a magnet (put an iron on patch over it) to the back of the apron to secure the ruler. This apron is way more comfortable than my old one which put a lot pf pressure on the neck strap

        My husband uses this for work. He looks great in it, and it is so durable and much better than his old apron-by miles! I couldn't recommend it high enough!

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

        I'm a custom home builder and wanted to try something other than toolbelt. To my surprise, this apron fit the bill. Light, comfortable, well made, adequate storage for tools. Surprisingly easy to climb in setting rafters and ceiling joists. I added a clip on hook for my rafter square and my impact driver hangs nicely on the back strap. It can be aggravating to get on full of tools and the neck strap needs a pad or wear a collared shirt to prevent chafing. All in all I'm well pleased with my purchase. 3 months of framing abuse and no signs of wear.

          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

              • 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.
