An apron?  What?  Yes.  If you’ve ever undertaken a household repair project by yourself, you immediately discover that we humans are cursed with only two hands and not enough pockets.  This may be the next best thing.

I just moved into a “new” home originally built in the 1930’s.  Can you say “Honey-Do List?”  However, this simple apron is likely to take the sting out of any chore.  I was sent the Tan Suede color.

Features:

  • Top Grain Leather
  • Two large front pockets for nails
  • Two Leather loops for hammers or other tools
  • Two Tool Pockets behind leather loops
  • Tie straps

The very first thing you notice is the utterly intoxicating leather smell.  Flip the apron over, and yes… Made in USA with genuine leather.  northstar-leather-apron-7

The overall width of the apron measures just over 21 inches wide…

…and about 8-1/2″ tall.  The pockets are about 6″ deep.

Each pocket is roomy and generous.  As you can see, the suede is flexible and supple, yet highly durable.

One small touch I nearly missed:  The strap starts off at about 13/16″ wide, and tapers to a smaller width towards the tips.  Leather straps measure 48″ L.

The apron weighs just a tad over 13 ounces.

Here’s your average schmoe homeowner on a weekend in sweatpants, modeling the North Star Leather Co. Nail Apron.  (Don’t laugh at my wimpy 7 ounce hammer.)  Plenty of leftover strap, as you can tell (waist: mid-30’s)

northstar-leather-apron-14I measured out a pound of screws, and there was plenty of room to spare.  It barely filled in half of one pouch.

I absolutely love the North Star Leather Nail Apron.  It’s simple, timeless, and utterly practical.  Got a handyperson in your life?  What are you waiting for?  Get one!  Or, treat yourself and get to work.
