Alright I bought both. Just got them. I will say these are the best aprons available. I liked certain things about shady's but Mike has done a great job designing them. I plan on using the little one for ppf and the large one for auto. If you're on the fence about a $130 apron, I've had my shady one for 9 years and it's still ok shape, I expect this one to last just as long if not longer due to the material used. Another cool thing that isn't advertised is the loop sewn into the belt for hanging water bottles off of. Thanks for the lead Midtown!!!
