Dad Tells Tale of 5.11

 

tactical

My dad Bill was über excited when he found out I started working at BareBones. Coming from a guy who does not get excited by much, I was intrigued.

 

He was downright giddy when he bounded upstairs and came back down with several garments. I was about to be schooled in 5.11 tactical gear.

 

workwear

With boyish enthusiasm he showed me the plethora of hidden document and tool pockets on his 5.11 wares, adding that they put these pockets in “darn near everything they make – backpacks and totes too!”

 

He also boasted of the 5.11 double-reinforced fabric on the knees of the pants and on the elbows on the shirts. He said between the insane quality of 5.11’s gear and BareBones’ prices, he saves an awful lot of money.

At BareBones, I had the pleasure of learning more about the quality of 5.11 and the range of their offerings. 5.11 has truly designed THE clothes and tools for anyone requiring incredibly durable and outright “working-practical” gear.

 

In fact, 5.11 consulted with EMTs, police officers and enlisted men & women in deciding how to design their gear. Need to decide where the pen holders go on an ambulance top? They asked them! How best to design medical and tactical bags for optimal versatility? They asked EMTs, officers, and soldiers!

What a draaaaaaag–but how to make it fun? How to put a smile on your frowny impatient patients who just want to get the heck outta the hospital?

 

The answer? FUN SCRUBSFun scrubs? What does that even mean? Well, according to a couple different studies, what you wear to work can affect not only who you work with (for you healthcare workers, that means your fellow staff and patients), but also yourself.

Let me explain by taking you on a visual tour of a wholeee newww woooorrrlllddd of my top 20 picks for super Fun Scrubs.

7. Dickies 84771C Women’s Missy Fit EDS Print V-Neck Scrub Top

 

Unrelated to scrubs, but relevant to adorable comics about an owl named Owly who just wants to be friends with everyone, here is a link to some free Owly comics that you can read while you’re on break.

14. Tooniforms 6767CB Women’s Cotton Scoop Neck Scrub Top

 

I recently re-watched Disney’s Bambi and it was like the saddest thing ever (well, not quite as sad as Dumbo. That got too real), BUT the good part is that everyone only really remembers the fancy-free prancing of this growing deer and his animal friends. That’s sort of ideal experience though, isn’t it? Get through all the tough times, but come out remembering the best of those times. Spread that positive experience to your staff and patients with this Bambi scrub top.

18. Tooniforms 6546 Women’s V-Neck Scrub Top

 

I never watched a whole bunch of Hello Kitty as a child, but I saw a few episodes and they were… bizarrely calm? Well… anyway, Hello Kitty is a giant hit with people all over the world. She has become an icon for fashion, cute culture, individuality, and maybe stereotypes of Asian submissiveness (but there have been lots of rad movements to reverse this trend). So get that kawaii out of your eyes and start spreading the joy with these Hello Kitty scrubs.

Kid’s:

Hikes are great for family trips and bonding. Letting your kids explore the great outdoors is perfect for opening their minds beyond Facebook and video games. Have your little tykes strapped into the Hi-Tec Omaha Jr. in Grey and Blue to protect their feet from bumps and bruises. Can’t say the same for their knees, but at least their feet will be protected! For a more rugged big kid look, put your kids into the Hi-Tec Oakhurst Trail Jr. for steeper hills and lots of dirt! Just as long as their feet are protected, you’ll only have to worry about them getting dirty!
