This option is offered for metal shapers who work sheet metal on a pnuematic hammer at chest height. The Padded Chest has two layers of 1/4 inch neoprene foam and a double layer of leather to help insulate against the occasional blow experienced by metal shapers. The Padded Chest covers approxiametly one square foot. We double stitch using kevlar thread which has supurb tensile strength as well as being highly fire resistant. The Padded Chest option can be added to any of our bib style aprons except the Budget Apron. Aprons with the Padded Chest option will not include a logo pocket but will instead have a small logo placed in the bottom left hand corner of the apron.
