WOOD magazine review

These pocket holes let dust filter through

Review Summary

Shop aprons protect your clothes and keep tools close at hand, but they also collect dust and chips in the pockets. So when the folks at Duluth Trading Company asked me what I wanted in a woodworking apron, I said “clean pockets.” They responded by making this apron with mesh bottoms in the three largest pockets. After using this apron for several months, I love how most of the debris slips right through.
Hook-and-loop flaps on some pockets secure items you don’t want to get loose, such as a small square or block plane. And the apron is made of a durable, lightweight material, so it stands up against sharp-edged tools as well as stains, finishes, and glues. —Tested by Kevin Boyle
