To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I like how the apron looks, its length, the ease of cleaning, and the ease with which I can tie the strings. However, it's like it was spray starched with an entire can of starch. I'd hoped for something much softer. I wrote to the company and they were very accommodating, hence, the four stars.
First off, these are VERY lightweight. think of that polyester that you see flags made out of. This actually seems lighter! You could ball these up and no way you're doing to throw them more than 10 feet, they are too light and just open up like a parachute.
Of course the main thing is--not how far can you throw it, how does it do in the kitchen? Good enough for $4.50 each. You can definitely stuff this apron in a tiny space and keep it on hand as a backup in case you get your main apron dirty or forget your apron. It would fit easily in the pockets of a med- large roll up knife bag.
Kept spots off my clothes during a 8 hour cooking shift, but I don't know that you would want this as your every day apron, unless it was just as something quick to thrown on when you make dinner every night.
Pockets are quite small, just big enough to fit your hand in-without your thumbs. Big enough to hold a few pens and probably 5 sheets of paper folded up.
Excellent apron for the price. I can't tell you how many times the apron has saved my shirts from getting dirty while cooking in a rush. I would recommend but not so sure about them being "waterdrop-resistant". But for the price, you really can't go wrong if it's a simple apron you seek.
