Arsenal - 5700 16-Pocket Apron (Rating: 5)

I've never worn a shop apron before. I read a review on an apron here at LJ's and it prompted me to look into them. I don't have any affiliation with Arsenal. This apron is $20 bucks on Amazon.

I've had it for a few months now and I'm not completely out of my bad habits of laying the tape down somewhere but I'm getting better about putting it my apron. Before I got the apron I spent a lot of time looking for pencils, tape measures, squares, and various drill driver bits. I put these items in my apron now.

The apron is comfortable and sized right for me (6'0, 180#) It has adjustable straps with quick disconnect clips on the side. I leave all but one clipped. It's easy to put on and take off.

Since I got the apron I also got a Long Ranger dust collection remote control that fits nicely in the apron so it's one less thing to look for. And I'm reminded to wear the apron because at some point I need to turn on the dust collector.

The pockets do fill up with chips and dust but it isn't a big deal to me. The dust in the pockets would normally be on my jeans or shirt anyway. The other model apron has mesh in the pockets but after reading the reviews I learned the mesh tears easily.
