Tiger Cub Scout Uniform
> > > Triple Prizes < < <
The uniform is an important part of the Scouting program, especially for the youngest boys just starting their boy scout trail. It identifies the boys and adults with Tigers and gives them a sense of belonging to the den, the pack, and the Boy Scouts of America. Scouts enjoy wearing their Tiger uniform. They should wear it to all den meetings, pack meetings, and special pack activities.
The current uniform for the Tiger, introduced in August 2004, is the official blue Cub Scout shirt with orange/blue neckerchief and neckerchief slide, and blue Cub Scout pants. This replaces the Tiger Cub orange T-shirt with the Tiger Cub emblem on the front. The official Tiger cap, blue web belt with a Tiger buckle, and blue socks with orange band complete the uniform.
The Uniform Inspection Sheet has insignia placement guides.
The uniform shown here is known as the Field Uniform. The Activity Uniform is a Scouting-related T-Shirt and scout pants. These two uniforms (Field and Activity) are often referred to as Class A and Class B uniforms, but that is not correct BSA terminology.
Cub Scout Packs can design their own Activity shirt. The most well-known place to design and purchase Pack t-shirts is the ClassB.com web site. They are an official licensee of the Boy Scouts of America run by Eagle Scouts and have a great reputation of service and quality products since 1982.
The Tiger den leader wears the official Cub Scout leader uniform, the Tiger cap, and the Tiger leader neckerchief. There is also a Male & Female Leader Uniform Inspection Sheet. See the BSA Insignia Guide for more info.

These uniforms are a significant cost for many scouting families. Some possible ways to reduce costs are:
- Have your scout earn his uniform or part of it.(it might last longer, too)
- Purchase only minimum required items in your pack.
- Buy used uniforms on eBay.com or local clothes store.
- Check with your pack or district about a Uniform Exchange where you can pick up or drop off uniforms.

I had the same questions and using the guide that came with the adhesive sheet I pretty much winged it. The guide said for the world crest it should be halfway between the pocket and the shoulder seam. And the pack numerals I just left a space in between where the veteran insignia would have gone. I noticed many of the other boys in our den did not include this space but others did. My only thought on the world crest is that it looks to be high even though it is measured exact. Doing it again I would place it slightly lower than the halfway mark.
"centered horizontally over left pocket and vertically between left shoulder seam and top of pocket".
