A six inch wide strip made of tough Water Buffalo hide can be mounted horizontally or diagonally and will extend the entire width of your apron. Or, you can have a 10" square placed chest high- a great option for those who stand in front of a grinder!
This durable leather add-on provides an extra layer of protection where you have the most wear, often times that is right at waist level where you lean into your layout table or where you shift sheet metal onto tables. One of our customers moves pallets from left to right and a diagonal wear strip adds that extra protection a normal apron isn't designed to hold up to. Water Buffalo has a denser fiber structure and is more "stringy" which gives it superior abrasion resistance over cowhide.
