Nail apron help

Hey all.I'm trying to find a leather/suede nail apron like those cheap cloth ones you get at the lumber yards.I go through those cotton ones like water and I'm tired of hunting for decent ones.The ones Home Depot and Lowes sells are not deep enough.I just want a simple 2 pocket leather/suede nail bag that ties on.Anybody?

Rob,I found that one as well.It's the closest thing I've found to what I want.I'd rather it have just the 2 big pockets and no hammer loops.I might go with it if I can't find anything else.Thanks for the help.

Try Ace Hardware. The one I worked at in college sold them, and still does.

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com

I just got off the phone with the owner of the company.Very nice man.He's going to custom make me one without the leather loops and with only two pockets.He's also going to make it a couple inches shorter for me so it doesn't wrap around me. He's charging me a whole dollar more to customize it for me.I should have it by the end of next week.Looks like they make a great product and the customer service is awesome.Thanks for the help,guys.

Now that what I call customer service. You just don't see that much anymore.
