For some reason, I picture a Protector wearing that.

Given my ditziness around propane grills, that probably isn't such a bad idea.

It isn't designed for combat, but it will protect you from a pressure cooker.

Yes, but will it stop a BBQ fork?

"Rules of engagement are as follows: medium well with a hot pink center, lightly seared outside. Baked potato and Caesar salad support units are standing by. If we pull this off right, we'll be celebrating with a case of beer.

Okay, target sighted. GO, GO, GO!"

Is Cheerwine a nationwide thing now?

Looks like it would get kinda hot using that thick apron.  Also, WTF dudes, using a SOG Tomahawk on the steak?

i don't even have a spatula for my grill... (use a combo of chef's knife and tongs and my hands)

and the bottle opener that I drilled into a leg of the grill doesn't work. It breaks the glass instead of prying off the cap.

/ life is tough.

I expected actual flak protection. That's just a tacticool vest in apron form. Boo. Ballistic (at best) nylon with sh*tty MOLLE knock-offs.

I dunno - I'd wager that guy makes some good BBQ.
2013-06-20 01:26:57 PM  

It's an apron with MOLLE all over it.

If it's true to military form, it'll include a ton of pens for all the paperwork that has to be filled out. Plus, have you been cleared on the use of that thing?
2013-06-20 03:11:54 PM  
I would love one haha
2013-06-20 03:27:47 PM  
If I had any photoshop skills, I'd shop that onto the guys in The Shield.

Well seeing as how the jerk chicken and 9mm BBQ season is nearly ready to kickoff into high-gear in Scarborough I think this product definitely serves to fill a needed niche.

Just the thing for when uncle Bob has had a few beers and decides to show off his new gun.

No groin panel? Pass...
You gotta protect the family jewels from splattering grease.

Looks pretty much useless to me, who wants to walk around with utensils hanging off them? What on earth are you supposed to keep in those little pockets, spices?  That thing looks utterly ridiculous.

If you need a real flak jacket to BBQ, you need to move to a better neighborhood.
