I made the transition over slowly, and still use my suit for deep inspections when I'm disassembling the hive to look at everything.
I started out getting rid of the leather gloves. They were just too bulky and made working the hives difficult. I moved to thin rubber/latex or plastic gloves for a while then eventually just went to bare hands. The latex gloves took too long to put on, plus they riped. I work my hives without gloves now.
After watching a lot of older gentlemen work hives without suits or veils I thought ........ Hmmmm, I'm a senior citizen, I should be able to do that !! So I started doing partial inspections, without a suit or veil. That amounts to looking at several frames on the top super or brood box, feeding the bees, etc. I haven't gotten into trouble yet and my legs are still pretty good, so I can run if I need to. I work the hive with shorts.
I've watched several experienced BK's work hives without suits, gloves or veils, wearing shorts and short sleeve shirts ..... they just seem to have a special touch. I don't know if it takes skill, experience or the onset of Alzheimer's.
Whatever you do, go slowly.
Good luck !!
