Depending on how you feel about shop aprons, they’re either a super convenient way to store tools and keep your clothes clean, or a dorky accessory that just gets in the way. Honestly, I’m split about 50/50 on their use – when working on messy projects in clothes I don’t want to ruin, absolutely, give it to me. But other times I’d rather do without. That may change if I had the Silca Apron Premio. Not only does it look super pro, it has a number of features that help it stand out from the crowd.
Constructed from 12oz waxed duck canvas outer and 210D TPU coated nylon inner, the apron uses a strap design that eliminates a strap around your neck in favor of crossing in the back and buckling at the waist. Need to test ride a bike and don’t want to take the apron off? The split in the front makes that a reality (it also should make it more convenient to kneel down). A miliatary style Molle webbing field on the side gives you a ton of options to hang tools, and the apron features a pro mechanic inspired “hoody pocket” for storing tools or just stashing your hands in the cold.
Now available separately from the T-Ratchet and Ti-Torque set, the Apron Premio is in stock just in time for the holidays at $75.
