Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this suit.

Looking to get a suit, and for the price it looks good.

Just wanted to see if it is worth it, or if I should pony up for the more expensive suit from other
retailer.

 Thanks

It is my understanding that the Mann Lake suits are from Pigeon Mountain.   I have heard good things from those who have them.  I think you can get them cheaper directly from Pigeon Mountain -> http://www.pigeonmountaintrading.com/Category/1-22636-ventilated-bee-wear.aspx

I've had my Mann Lake vented jacket for about a month now. Very nice jacket. Heavy duty zipper and veil system. Very very cool on hot days.

I prefer the ultrabreeze, but the Mann Lake is less expensive and also good quality.  The breeze has velcro wrist wraps, while the Mann Lake just has elastic.

They're the "must have" for the season.
