Every Pack is different with what they require for uniforms but this post will give you a general idea, just check with your Pack to see what differences you may have.
Your first resource will be your Local Scout Store. Scout Stuff has a Scout Store Locator!
http://www.scoutstuff.org is a fabulous resource to find all sorts of scout stuff! They have uniforms, patches, activity kids. *Most of the pictures from this post are copied from the Scout Stuff website.

Class A Cub Scout Tiger Uniform
- Blue Shirt:
- Tiger Hat/Cap:
The belt's all look the same. They come in three lengths. It is a navy blue web belt with a metal buckle. The buckle is removable and you purchase the one with the correct emblem on the front: Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos.
- Tiger Neckerchief:
On the shirt there are a few Required Badges:
- World Scout Crest
- Pack Patch/Unit Numerals:
Our pack has a special patch with the date and the pack numbers all in one. It is $4, which is cheaper than buying and sewing on all the numbers individually, but your pack may not do this. If not you need to purchase all the numerals to complete your Pack number.
- Council Patch:
This one may be easier to get at your local scout store. Ask your pack or do a search to see what council you fall under. Not all council patches are available online.

- Tiger Handbook:
- Badge Emblem holders:
I personally like to sew on my son's rank advancement badges, but you will see several scouts using these. This one is personal preference.
- Youth Patch/Brag Vests: These are a fun place to show off all the fabulous patches that your son will be earning.
- Cub Scout Letter:
- Rank Advancement Badges:
- Belt Loops and Pins
There are several different Belt loops and pins that scouts can earn. They are divided into two categories, Sports and Academics. For the official list and for the requirements of each visit the Boy Scouts of America Academic and Sports program:
You can purchase the loops at your local scout store or search for your desired loop/pin @ http://www.scoutstuff.org.
- Activity and Event Patches:
The fun thing about being in scouts is earning patches! Throughout the year there will be several events and opportunities to earn patches. The Pinewood Derby, the Blue and Gold, and any Summer Camps your son attends will come along with a patch! Some packs cover the cost of the patches and others times the patch will be included in the fee to attend the event, it just depends so check with your pack if you are not sure. Your pack will be your first resource, followed by your local scout store.
- Tiger Cub Tracker and beads
This is the immediate recognition for Tiger Scouts. Each achievement that your tiger completes he will earn a bead. The different colors represent the different achievements they need to complete. A Family Activity (white bead), A Den Activity (orange bead), and a Go See It Outing (black bead). The beads go on the first three strands of the Tiger Cub Immediate Recognition Emblem which is attached to button on their right shirt pocket. Once the Tiger earns all 15 beads he has completed the requirements and has earned the rank of Tiger Cub. After the scout has earned his Tiger then he can be awarded the electives beads earned. For every 10 Tiger electives completed, the scout will earn one Tiger Track yellow bead.
