I really like Life Uniforms' LifeTech line for tops. LOTS of pockets and built-in ventilation mesh in the back. I think they were about $20 each, but my local Life Uniforms store gives 10% off for students and staff at the local nursing schools and hospitals... I'd be willing to bet yours does too.
I purchased the cheap set from Allheart just to see how "cheap" they were. For $10 a set I can't complain, impressed considering the price. I had Landau prior to that and while the quality is better, they didn't fit me well at all. Even though they are Unisex, they were designed for woman.
I just bought my first pair of IguanaMed scrubs. They are actually long enough!!! hallelujah!!! They are version II of their old scrubs, cotton/poly/spandex so they stretch, breathe and repel fluids (eew) I'd recommend them, I'm already in love with them!
My unit allows business casual, so I just switched to a Nurse Pro Pack (large), available from http://nursepropack.easystorecreator.net/ (like a carpenter's apron). Holds lots of stuff. Nice to just take it off and toss it in my locker with my 'scope and looseleaf at end of shift.
For pants I've always worn Landau # 8555, elastic waist with drawstring, one back pocket, high regular slant pockets each side, hip cargo pockets each side. For shirts I've always gotten UTY (Uniforms To You/Cintas out of Chicago) unisex with two lower front pockets. I'm a big guy so I'm a little particular about what I get. The pants hold up really well, the tops are more generic but I was always more concerned that the pants fit well.
Can someone tell me how the Aviator pants compare to these?
I'm going to be buying new scrubs soon and don't live in Chicago any longer, so I'm looking for a new supplier.
Aviator scrub pants are THE way to go! They actually feel like pants. I haven't used their shirts yet, but the pants are awesome. Stretch waist with BELT so they don't feel like they're falling off you butt all day, multiple usable pockets.....I can't say enough positive about them. At 29.99 they are a bit pricey by scrub standard, but they aren't standard scrubs!
