Checks the boxes for what I need as a coffee roaster. Room for a glove, cupping spoon (narrow pocket), notebook, wipe rag, pen, and knife without bulk or weight. 6' 160 athletic build and the S/M fits great without compromising safety or fussing with it during the day. Fabric material handles the heat of the roaster 400+ degrees, coffee dust/chaff cleanup, and moves safely and easily for weight of green sacks 150lbs AOk. Would love to see a hanging loop sewn into the back of it (and color options - brown would be great) down the road. HIGHLY recommend for coffee roasters and production team members on their feet all day who can't have their pockets full or sit around on their phones all day either.
Ive always been a fan of the ideal shop "apron" and have tried my fair share of them, even attempting to make my own. Then 1620 comes out with one. Now if you already own a pair of their pants, you get it, the material is f**ing bomb proof. If not and you want a "Apron" which acts more like a Flak Jacket, which is basically every shop guy out there, this is for you. The material breaths yet is ridiculously abrasion proof, chisels & spade bits in and out little over 5 months now still have not worn out pockets. It only gets better - the heat resistance of this is what makes my day. I've got a lot of scrap wood after cutting slabs off trees & just yard waste in general, this apron makes the difference in getting close to big fires. Also in creating custom brass knobs, melting the brass myself, again the apron is solid. Take all of that in plus the fact the coverage on your chest & waste has stopped the splintering shooting everywhere shards of Black Walnut & Maple from the chain saw & shop "accidents". F**k the leather etsy artisan made BS. Etsy will melt, etsy is heavy, NO LIFETIME WARRANTY for about 3 times the money. 1620 is UNDER $100 your getting easy access storage heat, metal, wood protection assistance PLUS a LIFETIME WARRANTY. This is why I say change the name to Shop Flak Jacket, oh and maybe have the over-all clips on one side both top & bottom either completely left or right, allowing to be put on like a jacket. Maybe a hammer loop or two on the back.
Find my self always grabbing for this Apon, be it, laying down poly or wrenching on my bike. Everything I need is always in my pocket right there. Keeps me nice and dapper from stains and splashes. Pretty much a must have in my book if you find yourself making a mess outta gettIng stuff done.
