We'd always been a little dubious of using an apron for the sort of jobs around the garage, house or garden that we do. That's until we started using one. Turns out aprons are really useful for when you just pop out to do a quick job (rather than climbing into your overalls). I leave mine near the garage door and it reminds me to stick it on when I'm in there regardless. Louise uses hers in the greenhouse and when she's out picking crops from the patch.
The Carhartt Denim apron is a great lighter weight apron that works for loads of uses. It doesn't need wearing in like the other heavier Carhartt canvas aprons that we sell.
The great thing about all the Carhartt aprons is that they have a criss-cross fitting at the back. This means two things - firstly it's useful that the same apron fits both of us (I'm 6ft 3 and Lou is 5ft 5) as we can adjust it to fit. Secondly, it allows for a balanced weight distribution - so it's comfy to wear (especially if you're wearing for longer periods of time).
Material: 12oz blend of cotton and polyester denim. The straps are 100% polyester
Pocket situation: there's a useful bib pocket with a zip closure, four large pockets, two small pockets at the waist and an additional couple of pockets at the side (useful for keeping tool close to hand.
