I read somewhere that a tyvek suit is sting proof,  anyone have experience using one?  The only thing I've used tyvek for is building wrap in my construction job.  Doesn't seem like it would stop a stinger.

I have used them when spraying paint and you will sweat buckets unless you're in Seattle today.  Really like wearing plastic rain jacket and pants.

I took several stings to my tyvek suit today... most of the stingers went in sideways, none of them got me.  I usually just wear it so I don't have to worry about wearing dark colored clothes... but I was glad I had it on today since my girls were sure in a pissy mood today.  I guess it's because it's been so rainy lately and they are much lower than I think they should be on stores.

I have a tyvek suit that I use when the girls are cranky and I must get into the hives.  As others have said, it's very hot, but it provides a good amount of protection.
