    Oh, yeah. I forgot. That really would be dorky. But the questions remains. I'm mostly a HT person, but I'm kinda sorta wanting to train such that I feel I could make an honest attempt at a Qual. So... if I dropped the cammo and donned a lab coat (aptly named, actually) would it raise eyebrows (cause eye-rolling and tooth-sucking.)

    Do you really care? I have run in a cast off white dress shirt that would have fit an NFL linebacker, I have a cute little quilted one lined with black fleece that I got at an end of year LL Bean leftovers sale, and then I have run in a long sleeve white tshirt. Dog didn't care. In my busiest years, the most trials I ever ran was about 4. If and when I see an opportunity to do more, I may get a real handlers jacket. And I will for SURE when someone tells me which kind will guarantee that my dog takes my whistles and casts! Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the idea of wearing proper attire for the sport you play, but if you are unable to spend much time at it, I can't see throwing much money either.

    Try a "scrub Jacket" instead of an actual lab coat.

    Our agility instructor use to wrap us up ..kind of like this..LOL Had to run our dogs..no hands..learned a lot! Not so sure this would work in the field though

    Are you looking for a white handler's jacket or camo clothing for hunting and running HT's? If camo, check out the Prois line of ladies clothing. Wide range of sizes and well thought out designs and features (magnetic closures vs velcro, etc) Best of all ..... no pink camo!
