i do. i hate coveralls. after years of cold weather construction i found that bibs & a jacket give better coverage & easier access to pockets & ......the jacket works well for me. it's made to use with a hat. you can get the typical beekeeper helmet which is what i originally used or you can get a 3m hardhat with the full sun brim. they have a great quick adjust suspension system. i'm currently using a straw pith helmet for the ventilation. the sleeves & bottom tale have elastic for a tight seal that works well. i've not had bees getting in thru the elastic seals. i did have one get inside the veil but still have not figured out how it got in. it was the day that vandals knocked my hives over so i was dealing with a lot of really angry bees ( 5 hives worth ) & was literally covered with bees. i give it a thumbs up
