I've been wanting an apron to wear in the shop. My wife started to make me one but then she started quilting and it sits somewhere. It really wasn't what I had in mind anyway (don't tell her). Klingspor has a nice leather one that is the style I want. Has the straps that go over the shoulders as opposed to around the neck, good sized pockets with flaps to keep some of the sawdust out, pockets for pencils and a pocket for safety glasses (I figure I would put them on more often if they were right with me). The apron is leather. I'm have a couple concerns about leather. It is heavier, probably hot, although my current little shop is air conditioned, and it can't be cleaned. The upside is it may provide more protection for the occasional kick back, I've had two in the past 3 months that have been very painful, both caused from being stupid for a split second (maybe I can find one with kevlar in it!).
I'm wondering what those who wear aprons think about leather, and what they find best in an apron. Type of material, and other features.
