final two stars on hold

When I first saw the apron, I was surprised that the material was so lightweight. It just didn't seem like it would hold up to a welding or grinding spark but it did! It is not as robust as a leather apron but it is lightweight and it does get hot in my shop. The Miller emblem was sewn on crooked; a red flag as to quality. It did survive un-scorched what normally sets my shirt on fire. It's pricey but time will tell.
covers me at mid-shirt which frequently catches fire when grinding.
not very robust but if it performs, it's light weight will be an asset.
Miller emblem was sewn on crooked; this is not performance related but reflects poorly on the manufacturer and on me as a professional when seen on me in my shop.
location of the pocket catches sparks.
