Pockets are an essential feature of any white lab coat, and any set of scrubs. Pockets should be discreet and conveniently placed, yet provide ample room for storing of small medical instruments, cell phones, iPads, and other odds and ends that you carry with you all day.
When your pockets are working overtime, there’s a greater chance that they will rip and fray along the edges. Natural wear and tear is an inevitable situation for any garment that you wear regularly, but a high quality garment should have reinforced stitching in key areas to ensure that this doesn’t happen.
This is just one of the many design features that put Medelita’s lab coats and scrubs ahead of the rest of the medical apparel industry.
As you can see in this close-up image, this Medelita lab coat has a double row of stitching at the two corner ends of the pocket. This is a mark of high quality, as it demonstrates a fine attention to detail, and serves for you to get more utility out of your lab coat. The reinforced seams will hold you things indefinitely without being subject to typical wear and tear.
Medelita offers reinforced pocket stitching on their line of scrubs as well.
