I used to have a job where I wore an apron, like the kind people wear in restaurants, with three pockets and tied around the waist. I've been thinking about making an apron and using that inste...

Re: Hip belt pockets yea or nay?
I find they get in the way of my arms when I walk. I also have a hard time getting them to stay on the hip belt and I struggle with the weight of the hip belt pockets twisting around the hip belt s...
