"Class B" shirts. Pack 773 provides yellow "Class B" shirts, which are included for Scouts in the annual registration fee.  These shirts, yellow with Pack 773 artwork, are great for informal outings and camping when a more formal Scout Uniform isn't necessary. 

Uniform Tips. 

o  We recommend purchasing the uniforms a bit larger then needed so that Scouts are able to get several years of use. 

 We recommend belt buckles and kerchief sliders with the Cub Scouting logo rather than a rank insignia so that you don’t have to change them every year.

 Flexibility on shorts and pants. BSA sells customized shorts and pants, but we invite Pack members to wear any comfortable blue shorts or pants, especially since Cub Scouts grow out of pants so fast and there are many affordable options than the custom uniform pants.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask a leader at one of our Pack Meetings. We’re happy to help you assemble the uniform and other equipment you need in the most efficient ways possible, and we want to be sure every Scout has access to a full uniform regardless of family resources.
