Special Honors

Hedley and Bennett Blackjack The crossback straps on this model are designed to distribute weight evenly across your torso, reducing the risk of aches and pains at the end of the day. The black leather accents add heft and durability without ever being distracting. hedleyandbennett.com

Alef & Tav This offering has cowhide on it to protect you from serious spills and burns. It's a smart choice for the chef who likes to get daring in the kitchen — or the klutz who's always wandering into open flames. hardtofind.com

The Charles This waxed canvas model is up to just about any task, so after you're done making dinner feel free to do a little welding in it. It's extremely simple and minimalist while being equally rough and tumble. sturdybrothers.com

Editor's Notes

July 19, 2019:

For this list, we strove to provide a balance between fun novelty aprons and those suitable for professional use. Our top choice, the Hudson Durable Goods Professional, is obviously in the latter group, but it can also make a faithful companion for any amateur who spends a lot of time near a BBQ pit or smoker.

The Big Mouth Inc. Grill Sergeant is obviously at the other end of the spectrum. Anything with a beer bandoleer will get some laughs, but it's nevertheless useful for cooking as well as for drinking. It would certainly be frowned upon for most professional applications, but it's perfectly suitable for tailgating and camping.

The Famgem GOT Tyrion, on the other hand, threads the needle between the two camps. The funny quote emblazoned on the front will make it a popular addition to any cookout, but its durable denim construction and multiple pockets will also make it an invaluable piece of equipment for the serious chef.
