Full beesuit here, the veil is attached, and gloves.  That's if I'm doing the 'going in'.  If Greg is doing it, he's in full body armor and I stand off to the side - but I'll get close, hold a frame, etc. without any protective gear.

Nothing until recently, now a veil.

oh, and my socks.  Smiley

And what did your neighbors think?   Wearing nothing while working your bees.  You must know that Beekeepers are already thought of as loony and now you have to do it naked--or did I miss read that?  LOL  :p  :p

The whole she-bang! Top to bottom, covered up as well as I can stand.
It is a very sexy look...dirty, wax and gunk covered suit- veil with many holes all sewed up with bright white string, gloves ripped out at the wrists now held togeather with duct tape.
The chicks go crazy for me dressed like that.  Then again, it could be my smoke&sweat cologne....huhmm...

I wear the full "moon suit" and gloves.  I have the kind where the veil zips onto the suit.  It works really well as long as you remember to zip the hood on all the way.  I left about a half inch open last year and of course one of the girls found her way in!  It's a little difficult to get the veil unzipped from the suit with one hand while you're squeezing a bee with the other!  it also get awfully hot in August in that suit.  I would also like to know where bberry found the pull over veil/shirt.  Sounds like it might be a little cooler...

Full body armor. You never know what might happen. Drop a frame of bees or a whole box. Or perhaps they are just a wee bit testy one day.

Depends on the mood of my bugs mostly.

Usually I go in with the "Premium Zippered suit w/round vale" from Betterbee and gloves (cant stand stings on my hands + I'm a banjo picker and it's hard to play after getting stung there).

If its nice hot weather, I just go in with t-shirt, shorts, my old trusty square folding vale, and gloves.

Anette, thats what I got too, the tag just says CE?  It was at my local store for $69, I was shocked cause I'd been shopping online.  If they are still on sale I'm gonna pick a Large up for my daughter & as a spare for anyone coming over.  looking for the tag I just noticed that the veil/hat zips off!  Woo Hoo!  Glad I noticed before I actually have to manipulate bees for any length of time!

Thanks,  I think I am going to treat myself to this outfit, because getting those full suited coveralls on is a pain and very, very hot. How stingproof would this outfit be if I wore it over heavy jeans, and wore my high rubber boots?Huh

Thanks for the info.

Annette
My husband will have a fit when he sees the price, but oh well!!!

In cool weather, a jacket with a zip on "English" style hood and a pair of leather driving gloves tucked into the sleeves of the jacket.  Jeans (usually faded, sometimes a bit "holey"), boots.  In hot weather, a Golden Bee Products suit with just shorts on under it.

Jacket with zippered veil from Dadant, about $45.00. Get it 2-3 sizes bigger so its roomy. I wear long Khaki pants with this set up, works great.
