Want to purchase a bee jacket.
« on: May 13, 2005, 02:09:17 PM »
I want to get a bee jacket and have seen several in different catalogs. What is everyone here using and why do you like the one you have or don't like them. I am not interested in a full suit, just the jacket. Preferably with a veil that does not need a helmet.

Thanks

Mine is from Beeworks:

A cheaper one that a lot of people have said good things about is here:

If you want really cool, you'll have to get a full suit from Golden Bee Products.  Then you can work your bees in shorts, a ventilated bee suit and boots and nothing else.  :)

For us female beeks, that would be... interesting.

I purchased this one about a month ago.  Sent them a check and had the jacket in a little over a week.  Fits great, very comfotable.  I'm happy.
