Hello,
Has anyone purchased a suit from this company? If so, how is it working out.

Thanks,
BC

The most beeproof suits I know of are the Golden Bee Products suit and the Ultra Breeze suit.  The Ultra Breeze jacket is nice too.  Seems like I've had a bee in my veil once and I'm in the beeyards every night doing queen rearing, rain or shine, wind or calm.  I don't think I've ever been stung through the suit.  but nothing is bee proof.  Especially if you don't quite get something zipped all the way...  :)

I bought a bee suit from beeproofsuits at the beginning of the season (UK). I could not  be more pleased! Really well made and great value. I recommend them.

I've got a jacket and veil of the Ultra-Breeze and now a full suit. I love them!

I've had my ultra breeze jacket for a couple of years and have to say it's great.

I was looking into buying a suit or jacket for my wife and found that Bill's family has started a new website ultrabreezesuits.com. Bill's original page honeymoonapiaries.com is still up and has been updated as well.

UltraBreeze is really great. It's made of three layers of mesh that makes the suit material thick enough to keep the bee stingers from penetrating, but it's not too hot. Several times this summer I've removed Africanized bees from a roof or wall and been under full attack by hundreds of bees with no stings! The suit is amazing! The weakest point is the face screen. Several times my lip or chin has accidently touched the face-screen and there a dozen bees there just waiting!!
