Aviator Svrubs looks to have best scrub pants with pockets. And I mean pockets everywhere.

where can i find em?

Just be thankful you have the choice to go out and by your scrubs. Where I work, I have to by uniforms through the company.It's aggravating...The uniforms are Landau(and practically see through), solid white....imagine that. The shirts are not even scrub style, their white polo. Kinda like the ones for clinical in LPN school. I miss my scrubs of all colors. The best part is we have to buy the uniforms at work and don't have a choice in the matter.:scrying:

Are pants without drawstrings only considered for females? Same question for scrub tops with pockets on the front.

Unisex one's are hard to find.

Yes no fanny packs please.

Landau has some nice cargo pants with like 7 pockets. Room for everything. I have two pair bu find they can be too tight at times. I like loose scrubs so people don't see everything beneath them. I have a few pair of Life brand scrubs www.lifeuniform.com . I like them cuz they are long enough for me and the two cargo pockets are fine. 2 pocket tops are ok depending on colors/prints. I have two tops like that and I don't like pocket tops (but they do hold everything when you sit down).

I bought mine at a local ARMY NAVY store for about $20 grand total. They dont need to be fancy.

Check out the Landau scrubs for men line. I got them at my local uniform dealer. They had to order them. Made for Men. Nice shirts with vents. Pockets and belt loops on the pants. Really worth it. IMHO

I agree with the Landau for Men line.

They have one pair of pants that I love. They actually have a zippered fly, and a belt loop. They also have two back pockets so you can have a place for your wallet. They have five other pockets too.

I feel alot better in these pants, as they feel like actual pants instead of pajamas.

Here is a link to them

Landau Uniforms

I now buy all my scrubs at lydiasunifroms.com. I have been using them for a while now. Their prices are reasonable and they have a nice variety of stuff for men. You can get from the very cheap kinds to the very expensive name brands there in just about every imaginable color and style, and you can even get fancy embroidery for cheap, if you're into that sort of thing. The shipping costs are reasonable if you buy at least a couple sets, and you get the stuff via DHL within two days. Allheart.com also has a good selection and similar pricing.

If you are looking for bargain basement prices, there's another place that I have bought from in the past called tendollarscrubs.com where you can actually buy a set of scrubs for ten bucks, but the quality of their stuff isn't quite as good.

I've done business with UniformDiscounts.com and they've been ok. I especially liked that they had the Crest zippered top and cargo pants I like, but apparently Crest is going out of business. I just ordered a couple of similar Landau tops and some 7 pocket cargos. Looking forward to seeing how they are.

One reason I like the zippered tops is that I traded my 6-pack in on a keg. Ok, so I never had a 6-pack. In any case, my waist and hips are about the same size, so it's tough to count on elastic to keep my pants up, especially as the shift progresses and my pockets fill up. So, I wear suspenders under my top. Problem solved, but if the need arises to drop trousers, it's better not to have to deal with a pullover top.

Sorry if that's TMI, but they don't tell you this stuff in nursing school.

It's been a few years since I had to buy scrubs (I hate spending money on work clothes/shoes - rather spend it on clothes I can relax in!) anyway recently I bought a few scrub sets, and my experience was...buy specifically men's or unisex scrubs. If you don't, you run the risk of the scrubs being made more for a woman's shape:

i) low rise/high crotch pants

ii) top being a little shorter

Didn't realize it until I got them home and washed them - pants ride too low for comfort, and hiking them up gets me crotch-bound. The tops are okay, since I'm a little short in the torso anyway. Also, the pants seem to have kind of a wider leg - not flared, but just wider.

As for the two pockets up-front on the tops, I prefer them - holds all my crap, since I usually work loaded down with: portable phone, beeper (sometimes two), 2 sets of keys, scissors, penlight, pens, stethoscope (don't like wearing it around the neck), sometimes an otoscope...and other crap that ends up in the pockets by days end. Can't have enough pockets.

I'm going to look into the aviators - look cool but seem kind of expensive.

I bought the SCRUBS brand at www.smartscrubs.com and I can't complain about the fit or the color selection. I just have the solid colors, no prints. These scrubs are soft and comfortable with lots of pockets(so no fanny pack needed, LOL). Good Luck

Check out the brand Metroscrubs....they are very cool.

I like the 3-pocket scrub tops at http://hawaiianfabric.com -- fairly lightweight, but humongous variety of great patterns that cheer up patients and you're not likely to run into someone else wearing the same thing. I signed up for the sale e-mails and only buy when they're on sale.
