Tiger Scout Uniform
The uniform is an important part of the Scouting program, especially for younger boys early on 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.
Adult partners don't have to wear a uniform, but it is highly recommended that they wear a Tiger Cub orange T-shirt or sweatshirt.
The Uniform Inspection Sheet has insignia placement guides.
If you wonder where a patch goes, it is probably a 'temporary' patch. See Scouting FAQ page for help - it can be displayed on the right pocket, red vest, wall display, or shoebox.
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.
