Also remember that not one particular lab coat is the best for all 
laboratories, etc.  In most of our research labs, we went with cotton 
lab coats with snap closures since we felt pyrophores were our greatest 
risk for significant harm.  So in that situation, a 65% polyester coat 
would not be a good choice.  As with most things, one needs to do a risk 
assessment and try to find the solution that best balances those risks.
