I got in touch with Suzie who is making my jacket right this minute. :)

Thanks, JP.

Jacket arrived yesterday. I have put it on, (you know like when you were a kid and you just got a new pair of shoes) in the house. Weather permitting will work the girls out on it today.  This thing is awesome. After sweating through the Texas summer last year with a regular Dadant jacket, I will be lovin this this thing come April when we are starting summer.

Mike, Suzie said yours was going out 4-5 days ago, been waiting to see your response. How do you like the hive tool pocket? And is the hive tool pocket orange or white?

It is Mike, correct?

Yes Sir. Mike it is. The hive tool pocket is white. It is just right. With the hive tool in there, the bent end sticks out just enough to grab easily but not too much that it would get hung on something.  I also really like the fact that a cap still fits under the veil.  Also, great visibility from side to side. Unlike the Dadant hood that make you turn your shoulders as well as your head. Did I mention that this thing is awesome.  Showed it to my buddy that is getting back into bees after a twelve year hiatus and he is gonna get one too.  Called Suzie this morning and told her how much I liked it.  For those of you that are wondering it it is worth the money.  My unsolicited opinion is absolutely.

I've been on vacation in Florida, and when I arrived home today not only are my bees bringing in pollen to beat the band, but my new Golden Bee Jacket was waiting for me. My other bee suit doesn't fit me very well because I'm kinda short, but this one fits me like a glove. When I spoke with Suzie, she asked a few simple questions and she immediately knew which size I should order. It feels good...I love it. Seriously...it's awesome. My hive-tool pocket is orange (as are all the velcro closures. I don't know how Suzie knew that orange is my favorite color.)

Very happy with it. Thanks, JP, for encouraging this one!  :)

  I went to the site, and nothing about jacket. I wanted to at least price it before I bothered them about ordering. Can you give me a price?

The jacket is still a fairly new item and they will be adding it to the web site soon. Suzie Lemoine's number is 504-456-8805.

The price has been $169.00 but she has mentioned that she might start charging for shipping which would increase the total price.

Looks like a great product, but $169 for a jacket plus shipping breaks the bank.  I realize
gloves come with it, but that's only $10 to $15.
When it gets down to about $80 I'm in.

Just got a jacket myself. Suzie had it to me two weeks after we spoke on the phone. Very pleased with the quality, and it's so nice not to be on the verge of heat exhaustion while working around hives.

For those who are concerned about cost, "Buy quality and only cry once".

I ordered mine last week after I saw JP's vidio "My Youtube videos can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=JPthebeeman&aq=f "

Because of the size needed, mine will be made and delivered in 3 weeks. Really looking forward to this new jacket. The only thing I forgot to ask Suzie about is the cleaning of the jacket (not that I have a white jacket now)  -Mike

She will tell you about a product called "Greased Lighting" which I use also. You hang the suit up outside and spray it down with this stuff, hose it off after 30 minutes or so then you can place it in the wash or just hang dry it.

I get mine from the dollar store.

Thanks JP, I will look for the "Greased Lighting", although I am not sure what my wife will say about me in a clean jacket.  :lau: :lau:  -Mike
