This vented Bee Suit ensures you stay cool on hot days whilst keeping the bees out.
Plenty of pockets for your hive tools.
Reinforced fabric on the knees.
Genuine YKK zips, two-way zippers at the neck with a good overlap, long front zip for easy on and off and a self-supporting collapsible veil. Elastic at the wrist with a elastic thumb strap and YKK zippers at the ankles complete .
Ordered this for a friend as it really does keep you cool and after a couple of hours in the apiary, that's really welcome. Only one major problem with mine and friends suit, MUST wear a baseball cap as the girl is too near your face, suffered numerous stings to the face, my ordinary suit does not have this problem, so must be a design fault, this needs to be looked at by the manufacturer, suit is also fantastic for not letting you get stung on the body, very grateful for that, always wear a BB cap, like the suit very much.
Suit seems pretty good, so far Bee proof even when wearing shorts under it. Ventilation is pretty good. It is heavier than a polycotton one tho'.
The veil is a little shiny on the inside which can make inspecting for eggs harder if the sun is on the wrong position.
A little heavy.catches in every bramble or barbed wire imaginable.Only works well when breezey. Hard to catch veil zippers. Very well made
Must confess did not realised vented meant vented all over - ie a double layer of some type of nylon meshing . Can feel a breeze if there is one but very hot .
Neck zip is a bit awkward on my sons but overall it seems to do the job well. only time will tell.
my concern is washing them since they are so big and heavy and will not fit in my washing machine!
