    Just what I wanted!

    This apron is substantial, comfortable, and looks great. The pockets are wide and substantial to put all kinds of things in. I am really pleased with it and planning to give some as Christmas presents at holiday time.

    I feel like a pro!

    I have never had a 'real' apron before. Besides the fact that I 'm no longer covered in flour or splattered sauces, I just feel more confident in my new apron!! The cross back is very comfortable, no pulling on my neck and I'm crazy about the ability to adjust the straps. This is a fantastic apron, it makes me smile every time I put it on. Thank you

    This is the one to buy.

    I’ve looked at many. Some more pricey than others. Some with waxed canvas. Some are cross back, some over the neck. This one is the one you should buy. Quit looking around and just do it. Excellent color choices. Great fabrics that will obviously wear well over time. The cross back is a great fit and is adjustable. Most I looked at were too long. This is an inch or two shorter than many which was perfect for me. C’mon. Now’s the time to stop staining your clothes with grease and oil splatters and look snazzy doing it. Scott and the Reluctant Trading Experiment crew did the hard part for you. Now you just have to chose the color way.
