Ventilated Full Body Bee Suit
This Bee Breeze fabric is comprised of three layers of mesh that allow you to remain cool during warmer temperatures yet protected from stings.
This fully ventilated bee suit has four pockets, elastic cuffs at the sleeves and adjustable Velcro cuffs on the legs. It comes with a round veil.
I was at first off-put by the price tag on this suit but knowing that I live in the hot and humid South ventilation seemed like a great idea. It was one of my best purchases and the only bee suit I will purchase in the future. It is solidly made and let’s you feel any breeze on the apiary while working. It is well worth every dollar!
Just used the suit this week with a friend's hive inspection and honey harvest...temps in Florida were in the 90's, and after an hour and a half I was still able to function, hot, yes but not unbearable.
This bee suit is very well made and does indeed make working in oppressive heat and humidity much more tolerable. I ordered a large. I am a 5'5" tall woman and find the suit to be short in the body -- and never thought of myself as having a particularly long torso. I don't know if this is true for all sizes -- or if the suit is gender specific (it may be different in a man's). I am hoping it stretches a bit as I wear it more -- bending over is a bit uncomfortable. :)
It looks like it will work great. It is a great fit.
I spent a lot of time looking at different types of suits. I'm so glad I chose this one. It appears to be well made and just trying in on for the first time I could feel the benefits of the ventilated material. Plenty of pockets and padded knee areas. Anxious to use it around a hive.
