The Utility Apron is the result of working with professional chefs to optimize the apron for performance in high-intensity cooking environments.

This prototype is size-adjustable and hooks in back with a quick and strong closure. It splits at the sides for squatting and fast-paced movement, and is shorter in back for maximum ventilation. There are retractable hooks at either side of the waist band for attaching anything from keys to the chef's favorite cooking tool. There are many pockets for holding everything needed, from note pad to pens to thermometer, pack of smokes, phone, wallet, and whatever else the chef needs.
