The Cub Scout uniform is an important part of being a Cub Scout. Wearing it lets people know that the wearer is part of the Boy Scouts of America in addition to their den and pack! The official uniform should be worn to den meetings, pack meetings, and most special Scouting activities. When Scouts wear the full "Class A" Cub Scout uniform, it shows they are a member of the team.

"Class B" uniforms, which consist of a Pack T-Shirt are worn to outdoor activity events such as bike rally or pack blow out and some community activity events such as church clean up.  Pack leadership will notify Scouts which uniform to wear. 

All uniform elements (aside from the class B T-Shirt) can be purchased at the Scout Shop at 12500 North IH 35, Austin, TX 78753. Alternatively scout uniforms may be obtained from other sources such as Craigslist and ebay.  Pack 265 also has a clothes closet with gently used uniforms from Scouts who have outgrown theirs.
