Back in the good old days, Dr. Kristi Davis often ended her workdays by bagging her clinic attire and taking it home to be washed. Then, along came COVID-19, which placed a renewed focus on personal protective equipment (PPE), including the need for disposable apparel for dental clinicians. But, as hygienist Jenna Hebert knows all too well, “finding a properly fitting, disposable lab coat that is breathable yet durable” is not an easy task.
Dukal may have the perfect solution with their UNiPACK™ FitMe disposable lab coats and jackets that combine heavy-duty, puncture-resistant protection with lightweight, breathable comfort. As the only disposable lab jackets and coats with an adjustable waistband, the FiTMe lineup provides a true custom fit and can even withstand limited washing and autoclaving to maximize cost-effectiveness.
After wearing the UNiPACK™ FitMe jacket, Dr. Davis said, “Everything was perfect. The durability was excellent, and it didn’t tear or feel like a paper gown.” Calling the jacket “amazing,” Hebert said, “It was very roomy and comfortable yet adjustable, and it kept me clean and cool. It repelled fluid during ultrasonics and when using disinfecting sprays, and it was breathable so I wasn’t as hot as in traditional cotton gowns or other disposable lab jackets.”
While Dr. Davis can still launder her clinic attire at home, during the COVID era she’s glad to have the option for disposable garments. “It gave me peace of mind that I could dispose of the garment and not risk possible transmission of pathogens.”
UNiPACK™ FitMe coats and jackets are made of soft, breathable, fluid-resistant polypropylene SMS material and come in 8 colors in sizes small to XXL. The latex-free apparel has a 3-position adjustable waistband, knit cuffs and collar, snap fronts, and 3 pockets.
Calling the UNiPACK™ FitMe jacket “very comfortable to wear,” Dr. Donald Jetter said it is a “high-quality, professional looking disposable lab jacket for me and my staff.” Hygienist Maureen Curran said the lab coat was “super comfortable and breathable with knit cuffs that were perfect, not too large.” Michele Byrd “loved the snaps on the sides,” and Damaris Perez said, “The product provided comfort, was breathable, resistant to water, and had easy closures.” Diana Carr was most impressed with the lightness and breathability of the UNiPACK™ FitMe lab coat but said the snaps were too small and difficult to maneuver.
Describing traditional lab jackets as “too baggy and unfl attering,” hygienist Malee Wong was pleased that the UNiPACK™ FitMe jacket was “less baggy with durable snaps on the sides that help create a better fit.” Tessa Simpson, RDH, said, “The fi t was great, and the adjustable waistband was my favorite part. By having a better fitting disposable gown, I didn’t snag on objects while walking around.” Hebert “loved that it came in black” and said it “makes for a perfect unisex jacket, and the adjustable snaps taper at the waist, making it more secure and slimming.” A few evaluators felt the sizes ran large, and Wong suggested a size guide with measurements to aid selection.

Dr. Lu appreciated that FiTMe lab coats and jackets are “disposable but reusable for 2 to 3 washes.” Being machine washable is what Wong liked most, and Byrd especially “liked that it can be autoclaved.” Although she did not choose to wash the jacket, Dr. Davis believes “it would definitely hold up well for limited washings,” and Dr. Jetter reported “no problems with tears or seams.” Wong “loved the extra durable snaps,” and explained, “The snaps on these jackets were definitely better quality and required more effort, which, in my view, means the clinician is better protected!”
