COMMENTS:

The one small (actually now that I spelled it out, it's a pretty big) problem is the adjustable straps.

The older apron did not have these adjustable shoulder straps, I basically wore that one on the work floor till the apron completely fell apart.

The new model has these adjustible shoulder straps. They come loose; all the time. I will have to cut them off and sew the straps directly to the apron to keep it from coming loose and getting me hurt.

For now great around the house, but till I fix this can't wear the apron in the shop.

Still best apron I've used in a long time and once I fix this problem I'll wear this one till it disintegrates.

    COMMENTS:

    I love this apron for projects around the house. I've always used a belt pouch with hammer loop and find it uncomfortable so I thought I would try your shop apron. It's perfect. Has all the advantages of a belt pouch and is much more comfortable. Thanks.

      This is so handy. Having everything with you all the time is a huge time save. I don't have to constantly look around for the thing I just had in my hand. Push stick is always ready to go, combination square is right there, dust mask is within reach, and pencil is always handy. Save yourself time and energy and get this apron.

        COMMENTS:

        I have not found a better apron, but am looking for one because the mesh pockets are not good. They allow fasteners to go through point first and poke legs and screws get caught in the mesh. It is much better to empty the pockets once in a while. The other improvement would be at least one pocket lined with leather or something that will allow a chisel to be placed there. Currently it cuts a hole in the bottom of the pocket.
