I am a Master Electrician and I use my Carhartt nail apron every day to hold my hand tools,(linesman pliers, wire strippers, screwdrivers, ect.), as well as parts I need for various tasks, such as wirenuts, screws, conduit fittings, ect. It is very durable and the wide belt is much more comfortable than those cheap string nail aprons you get from the major home improvement suppliers. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone in the construction industry.
A friend had one on the job site. I had always used just cheap canvas nail pouches from national chains. I bought one and the next time I saw my friend he had broken his belt buckle. He was back to using the cheapy. He warned me that the buckle cant take the harsh environment of electrical work, he might be correct. My buckle lasted another two weeks and it has broken also. Definite design flaw other than that the belt, and pouches are alright in my book with one exception, THE BUCKLE is a weak link!
I like the design, fabric and construction quality. The down side is the belt snap feature. It broke after a short time of use. Would return it but no longer have the sales receipt. Upgrade that and you have a quality product.
I love my Carhart apron!!! I just wish the front pockets had vertical pockets for tools ... Most of the time they'll lay horizontal and have a hard time digging them out. Example: 9" diagnal side cutters. Thank you. Hope to see a new product soon.
I work as an electrician and I need to carry the little things to get the job done. That means I carry many different screws, nuts, wire nuts, and other small tools in a nail pouch. I was using cheep nail bags bought at hardware stores that lasted weeks at best. Sometimes I would buy a new apron and it would not make it through the day! The threads would pull out and I would have a pocket with all the parts combined. A co-worker had a Carhartt apron ad I checked it out. He said he had it for 3 years! So I knew where I was getting mine from. I had mine for only a few weeks but I have found my nail apron for the future! If you work like me, buy it! You won't regret it!
I have been a electrician for years and always wore the small light weight nail aprons you get at the local lumber yard. To carry the small parts and things we need for the trade. The wear out or rip in a week or so, sometime only days. But this apron is the best thing since sliced bread. It holds more, it carries better and is more comfortable and durable than any I ever saw. Every tradesman should have one.
I am an electrician for I.B.E.W local 26 out of washington D.C. and for starters i can't say enough good about this tool apron's convenience , comfortability, its very large item capacity, you name it there is a pouch for it ! Now i could go on and on about its greatness but i wont its an apron one that i happen to love , you see i tote my side cutters ,screw drivers ,channel pliers ,etc. but i've gone through numerous aprons because of one small thing ! At the very bottom of the apron small holes start to form that eventually turn into large holes after about a month or so ,and i sew them back together with steel tie wire, due to there slim availability in retail stores i hold on to them as long as i can. now for the sollution , maybe just a reinforced bottom edge like you do on the knees of alot of your jeans and this little sachel is at the forefront of apron enginuity at its finest! Keep up the good work and lets get that into production and on the shelves a.s.a.p.! JUST KIDDING ABOUT THE ASAP THING! but really lets do it!
This is a great looking and feeling apron, I've had several over the years. However recently I have gotten less and less use out of each apron. The stitching breaks where I put in my screw driver. I think it would be wise for them to use tripple stitcing on the aprons, as it stands now the pockets only have a double stitch.
I use the apron as a shop apron. It's very well constructed and the belt is nicely sized and comfortable. I find the pencil pocket location dangerous, so I just clip them on the side. Good product and I hope to get a lot of use from it
I'm a handyman and like to keep some basic materials and tools handy. The apron is very well made with durable cloth but has a major flaw. The pencil-pockets should be at the sides so when bending over the pencil or nail-punch does not stab you in the guts.

I think its great the Carhartt has produced an apron. I use it all the time from simple repairs around the house to building cabinets, along with finish carpentryprojects. I dont expect any thing else but satisfaction from Carhartt.
