The BSA/Troop 2 official “field uniform” (sometimes incorrectly identified as the “class A” uniform)  consists of four items:

  • BSA tan shirt, with the forest green shoulder loops, and all correct insignia. No unofficial patches.
  • BSA olive pants (or shorts, in the summer)
  • BSA belt
  • BSA socks

The T2 official “activity uniform” (sometimes incorrectly identified as the “class B” uniform)  consists of the ALL OF THE ABOVE except the forest green “T2” t-shirt instead of the tan shirt.

At this time the troop does not have an official hat or neckerchief.  (These items are adopted by each individual troop. ) Until such time any Scouting cap may be worn, although please note no non-scout hats/caps should be worn, especially logo wear.

Scouts should wear appropriate footwear at all times, including the weekly troop meetings.  Open toed shoes (flop flops, sandals, etc.) are never appropriate except perhaps at a beach.

A uniform inspection sheet for Scouts showing correct patch placement, etc. is here.

For registered adult leaders it is here.
