We'll admit that the term “tactical” is often a bit of a buzzword in the survival gear industry. Most of the time, it's used to describe real purpose-built military and law enforcement gear, while in other circumstances it can be used to describe items that have a secondary purpose as a self-defense tool (such as tactical pens). When it comes to the 5.11 Tactical Tactigrill Apron, it's pretty clear the term is being used in a humorous manner, so we can appreciate that.

After all, you never know when you might have to endure the scorching heat and choking black smoke of… a backyard barbecue.

Summer cookouts can be fraught with danger at every turn, but 5.11 has your back. The new Tactigrill apron will provide your torso with an added layer of protection, and shield your existing apparel from harmful splashes and spills. A Teflon coating repels moisture, and a nylon shoulder strap with secure G-Hook closures makes sure the apron won't slip as you sprint to find cover from the kids.

Its breast pocket positions your cell phone optimally for quick access to important intel, like the latest sports scores. It also includes a hook-and-loop attachment point for grilling-related morale patches, such as the included Signature Grill Patch. It's important to keep your spirits high while grilling, lest you be demoralized by overcooked meat products.

Dual slash-cut pockets on each side of the apron offer convenient storage for your tactical spatula and combat tongs, and two more inboard pockets are designed for frosty beverage bottles. Even if you're dual-wielding cold ones, the Tactigrill lets you reload quickly with an integrated bottle opener. Of course, there's MOLLE-compatible webbing across the chest, so you can expand your survival grilling inventory with extra tactical beer carriers and cigar pouches.
