Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trainman2k Looks very nice, but.......
Just received the apron today. It looks very nice, but that don't cut it with me.
The overall workmanship and design is surprisingly impressive - well thought out. Don't judge it by my not-so-good pics - I'm a DIYer, not a shutterbug!! LOL!
I was impressed to see the top of the cargo pocket assembly is actually sewn and riveted directly to the single length of webbing that makes up the belt. (See pic)
The one length of webbing for the belt was a nice discovery also - means it should last a good long time!
The belt 'holes' are decent quality metal grommets, not just sewn open holes - another big factor in potential durability. (See pic)
The end of the belt is folded over and well sewn, not just a quick 'heat weld' finish, and the retaining loop and buckle are also riveted and sewn. (See pics)
Upon my initial inspection, my only 'con' is the rivet they put in the center of the larger pockets to secure the smaller front pocket assembly - it's easy to catch your fingernail on the rivet if you're not thinking. (Maybe I'll slap a piece of duct tape over it)
Honestly, all in all, this apron exceeds my expectations. The way it is constructed and assembled is truly impressive. Seems like an exceptional deal for what I paid, but time will tell if it is as durable and as good a buy as it appears it could be.
I will be putting it to my own torture test over the next few days.... will update with an "actual use" evaluation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dnfehren Large pockets, good material, good value
Heavy DIY homeowner, bought this to carry tools for a variety of different projects (framing, electrical, drywall etc). Works well so far. There aren't a huge number of pockets but the ones that are there hold a good deal. The two largest can each fit a cordless drill in a pinch but getting proper hangers would be better. One note though, if you are a smaller individual, I'm about 5'9" and around 155 lbs, the belt is designed for people way bigger than you. I have to use the very last hole on the belt and wrap the excess nearly all the way around, not a deal breaker but something to be aware of.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hank Worth the money!
I bought these about 2 years ago and use them on a regular basis. I use them to hold all my fencing tools when im out in the pasture or field mending broken barbwire fence or building a new one. They are worth the money and will hold up. Ive used them in rain,snow,ice,just about any type of weather you can think of an they still are in fairly good shape considering they get hung on the wire often. Very good set of pouches and worth the money!

I gave this to my son as a gift. He does a lot of volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity and Appalachia Service Project. He loved the weight, pockets and color.
