Great fit for big guys
This is a great apron for a large guy! I typically wear XXL size in most things. I also wear a 52" jacket and would be classified as a big man. Other aprons are generally too small on me and I've struggled to fasten them in the back. I have been able to wear this apron comfortably for extended welding sessions. It provides good coverage. My sides are still protected and I am able to easily fasten the clip in the back. The apron is longer than others that I've worn. It easily covers below the knees on me. The leather is also softer and more pliable than other aprons I've worn. Overall, I've been quite happy with this apron.
PROS: Good fit, back straps are easy to snap, comfortable, length covers past knees.
CONS: Clasps are cheap plastic and will probably break in the future.

Good Value, Well Made
It's a nicely made apron, but what else would you expect from Lincoln Electric? Good price, for a name brand welding apron. I docked it one star, because I'm a big guy, and "One size fits all" is not quite correct (as I've grown to expect). But overall, it's great protection at a great price.

Excellent blackmithing apron!
I bought this for my son for Christmas for his blacksmithing hobby. He loves it and says it does a great job protecting his clothes from hot coals, embers, etc.

I love this apron
I love this apron. I do a lot of welding crouching down and was tired of my junk looking like I had some strange disease from all the burns. Everything has now mostly healed I'm happy to say and when I'm not welding in it I wear it to chase the neighborhood kids with a chainsaw. Great multipurpose apron!

Offers good protection.
Came as described. A big ole hunk of leather with straps on it. I'm an artist blacksmith and this apron works perfectly. Only issue is making sure the neck straps stay adjusted properly. I would imagine that welders would love this apron as well.

Stop looking this is a good one
I’m a 6’4” and a big guy and this covers me well. It is well made, durable and the suede is thick and soft. It protects me well and I fully expect to hand it down to my kids it’s that durable. I did try some others I ordered on here and they were not very big or wel made. I should have gone with Lincoln to begin with! Truly an amazing company

Great PPE for a Metal Hobbyist!
Thick leather that cover almost to my feet and I am 5'11" or 6'. With my steel toed boots, I will be very protected chest on down. Maybe I can use my cutting torch more. Ahhh! I live leather smell.

This fits extra large at best. If your at bigger than 52" suit coat, don't bother.

Good defense against many types of airborn hot metal
This thing has really protected me well from welding spatter, and it's great defense against flying red hot metal while forging too.
