The Sloggers Apron | My New Favorite Homestead Tool


Let me first start by saying, I am not an apron kind of girl. Even in the kitchen, I only wear an apron when I know the job is going to be extra messy. I've never been that "girly girl"—I was a tom-boy my entire life. But, I do have my elegant moments.

So needless to say, when Sloggers recently approached me about reviewing a new product line, I wasn't necessarily sure I would be the best fit for the review. But, I decided to do it and see if I enjoyed it. 

....and I am SO GLAD that I did.

So let me tell you about this amazing new tool on my homestead. The mere fact that I now wear it, daily, should tell you something. The only things I typically use daily are my knife (for straw bales and bags), my boots, and my sweatshirt pockets. Not going to lie. I'm a very simple person who can make very simple things work on a regular basis.

However, I constantly found myself needing somewhere to "put" things. And that includes my cell phone, the house phone (for safety purposes when outside by myself), something to carry down herbs and treats in, and even those big egg hauls where the sweatshirt isn't big enough.


In walked the Sloggers brand new heavy duty apron, and I've been sold ever since. It is truly heavy duty. I have already been jumped on by the dog, pooped on by chickens, smashed some eggs on it when I dropped one. I even left my knife and garden shears slightly open in one of the pockets only to find that it didn't rip the inside of it to pieces.

The best part is that it's not just great for the animals and coop, it's great for gardening, washing the dog, farmer's market day to stuff all those dollars in—you name it, it can do it.


So what are my favorite things about the apron?

It's Made in the USA
That's right. Just like Sloggers boots and every product they offer, this apron is made completely in the USA. Including the material that it is made with.

It Really Is Heavy Duty
Sloggers certainly delivered on their promise. Not only is it sturdy and functionally built, it's also heavy duty without being stiff and rough. This apron can be used on even the dirtiest and toughest of farms and homesteads.

The Pockets Are Extremely Deep
And therefore, I can fit just about anything into them without worrying that my things will get lost, crushed, or fall out. I mean, seriously, I can't get over these pockets.


The Neck and Waist Straps Are Adjustable
I have used many aprons that just don't fit me well because they don't have adjustable straps and ties. Needless to say, I am a vertically challenged person—aka, I'm short. But this apron doesn't feel extremely long or bulky on me because I'm able to make it shorter with the neck strap. I am also not the skinniest person in the world, even though I have lost quite a bit of weight over the past year.  So this apron made me feel more comfortable knowing I could adjust height and width very easily.

It's Adorable
And there is no denying it. Something that is this functional normally lacks the cuteness factor. But a simple denim (and I hear they might be working on more patterns!) work apron, versus a plastic or rubber one, is much more girly in my opinion.

 

If you're like me and looking for something to keep you organized while tending to your homestead and farm animals, I highly recommend this product that was just launched online! If you would have asked me 3 weeks ago if a homestead apron was necessary, I would have laughed in your face.

Not this week, my friends.

I'm not sure how I lived without it up to this point!
