Great protection from stings and better visibility with the hat rather than the fencing veil in my other ventilated suit. I like that the hat has an adjustment otherwise it would be too big for my small head. However, I would really like to see suits sized for a woman. I am 5'3" and weigh 118lbs. The size small is too big for me although the waist drawstring helps to keep it in proper position. Also, I added elastic stirrups to keep the pant legs sealed around my ankle boots. Getting stung on your ankles isn't fun. Please consider adding these to your bee suits. Overall this is a nicely constructed suit, the wrist socks are a great feature that help you slide into your bee gloves efficiently.
I have one with the fencing style head but this one is far and way 360' better site lines, is clear of my chin and cooler too. Easy to zip up properly by yourself and is penetration proof because the zippers overlap so well.
I don't care for the sock type sleave holders but I'll just cut that off, its too warm there and I don't have a problem with wrists cuffs staying put when gloves go on. No foot strap but that has not been a problem either, easy to tuck into my boots. Having another style of a full suite to compare too, there is no comparison. This one is the best out there and Customer service is EXCELLENT!
Great fit and I feel very protected
This is the second one of these suits that I have purchased. The first one lasted through three seasons and is still wearable. This one is very much like my original and I love it. The ventilation is a must in hot southern summers.
Bee suit was as I hoped! Fits perfectly and bought a 2nd one.
