The heavy duty water buffalo leather with it's distressed coloration has long been a popular option at Forge-Aprons. What sets the Aussie apart is our logo emblazoned on a six inch wide by seven inch deep pocket in the same leather.
The apron design is our Original Cut featuring a 12" wide bib that flares towards the waist to 24" wide. The overall length is 36" long. It features our exclusive flame buckles and chrome finished hardware attached with rivets. It comes standard with our X-style Back Strap system that is based on your t-shirt size for length, but you can choose to add a Y-Strap System or any other option available on our leather shop aprons.
The brushed, top-grain water buffalo leather is a mid-weight leather at 4-5oz. Water buffalo hide has a stringier and denser fiber construct over bovine leather which makes it tougher to penetrate which makes it ideal PPE for metal workers of all types. The leather has been tumbled to make it more flexible but it is not quite as soft as our standard Super-Soft leather. Since it is a brushed finish, it will absorb vs repel oils and liquids.
