Layering

The right items to save time and keep you comfortable all shift long.

Deciding how to stay warm in the typically over air-conditioned medical environment can be tricky. When in doubt, refer to our layering guide to see which pairing best suits your needs. Bonus: Every item you see can be personalized with embroidery or engraving.

The layers: Underscrub t-shirt + Scrub top

When to wear them: If you’re in a fast-paced environment like the ER where a jacket may be too bulky, but you need that lightweight layer.

Uniform tip: Check with your color code, but a white underscrub is almost always allowed.

The layers: Scrub top + Scrub jacket

When to wear them: If you’re sometimes cold but tend to warm-up and like some extra pocket space. Black is a versatile color choice for your scrub jacket if you're not restricted to a uniform color.

Uniform tip: When adding a scrub jacket to your uniform, make sure you buy one from both same collection and brand as your scrub set to ensure perfectly-matching colors.

Choose a jacket that is the same brand and collection as your favorite scrub top, that way the color will match exactly.

The layers: Underscrub t-shirt + Scrub jacket

When to wear them: You don’t want to feel bulky, but need long sleeves at all times

Uniform tip: If you’re not wearing a scrub top, double-check that you don’t have to keep your jacket on the entire shift to sport your uniform color.

The layers: Underscrub t-shirt + Scrub jacket

When to wear them: It’s winter, you work the night shift when it’s always colder, or your hospital/office/clinic is always sub-zero.

Uniform tip: All the tips above apply to this one. Always inquire about the acceptable underscrub colors within your color code and when choosing a jacket make sure it’s the same brand and collection as your scrub top so the colors match.
