    I wear one pretty often. I like having the extra pockets, and I can take it off if it gets dirty. I don't think there's anything inherently womanly about scrub jackets. All the lab techs wear them. Get a caduceus and your name embroidered on it and feel like a total badass.

    Wearing "scrub jackets" defeats the point of wearing scrubs.

    Then again, wearing scrubs as uniforms you take home and launder yourself defeats the point of wearing scrubs.

    I've mostly seen women wear them. I have seen a hand full of guys that work in the OR wear them. When they have to come off the unit. I hate them!!!! Especially the tapered sleeves! I hate the clingy feeling. Some of the male CRNAs wear them at our hospital, mostly them i see with them on.

    I've seen them for sale under the male section of various scrub stores and websites. I guess it whatever your comfortable with. I personally just don't like the style of them, they look thin.

    I would buy a colored lab coat before I would by one of those. At my hospital where I work our uniform policy states that you must wear a jacket or lab coat that is the same color as your scrubs when inside the hospital working. MDs, Mid-Levels, nurses, and pharm can all wear white lab coats. Our lab techs can wear white knee length costs as well, but their coats look different (have pale pinstripes in them and the sleeves are tapers).

    I don't see anything wrong with a guy wearing that type of jacket, or whatever they are, as long as he is comfortable with it and doesn't break policy. I just don't like them myself.

    If you're confident in your masculinity, you wouldn't really care...

    I'm going into my 4th semester and I work PRN as an aide. I wear a fleece when I get cold. I wouldn't wear a scrub jacket, but that's just me.

    The guys in our Dialysis units, OR and sterile core wear them. Nobody looks at them funny, or has ever commented on it. It's hospital issue, has the health authority logo on it, and looks just as bad on them as it does on us females.

    I wear one. When I leave the OR it is policy to put a scrub jacket on. Mine are even embroidered. I have never really cared what people think so I don't know how it is or isn't perceived. We also can not wear underclothing that sticks out passed our scrubs.

    Have to wear them in the OR, but frankly, it's too hot in there with a jacket on.

    Hot? In an OR? Surely not.

    One of the guys in my cohort wore a scrub jacket all the time - partly to serve as a cover for his tattoos!

    When it's cold I usually wear long sleeve t shirts under my scrubs.
