Webelos Scout Uniform
> > > Triple Prizes < < <
The uniform is integral to the Scouting program. It identifies the boys and adults with Webelos and gives them a sense of belonging to the den, the pack, and the Boy Scouts of America. The uniform distinguishes Webelos from other Cub Scouts. Scouts and leaders should wear it to all den meetings, pack meetings, and special pack activities.
Webelos may continue to wear their blue Cub Scout uniforms for as long as the den chooses. Our den chose to transfer to the tan uniform in February of 4th grade. Reasons for this timing are:
Each Webelos den should learn to work as a patrol. To help with that patrol identity, each den can choose a Patrol Patch and create a patrol flag, name, and yell.
Tip: If you get a green Boy Scout belt for your tan uniform, you will not be able to display any Cub Scout belt loops. The belt widths are different and the loops will not fit. Notice the blue belt in the photo.
The uniform shown here is known as the Field Uniform. The Activity Uniform is a custom pack 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.
Packs can design their own Activity shirt. The most well-known place for pack T-shirts is the ClassB.com web site. They are an official licensee of the Boy Scouts of America and have been providing high quality products to scouts since 1982.
The Webelos den leader wears the official Cub Scout leader uniform and the Webelos Cub leader neckerchief.

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.

Restating: does wearing the diamond Webelo patch alone on the left pocket, ITSELF, signify that the Cub Scout has earned his Tiger badge? (Would it be worn, in this manner, only by boys who have earned all 5 patches?)
If not, I guess I'm questioning the "why" of removing the Tiger recognition in lieu of the obligatory Bob Cat.
@Kevin - the uniform inspection sheet linked to above tells you and shows you where those pins are displayed, as well as nearly everything else.
@Chris - The scout needs to earn the Webelos rank before being presented and wearing the Webelos rank patch. You should remove his older brother's patch before he wears the shirt.
