I recently upgraded to a vented suit and this is the cheapest one that I could find.  I have used this suit over the summer and have loved it.  Will probably get a jacket over the winter.

Actually bought quite a few things from this place and had good luck with them.

I bought two of their full suits some months ago. I haven't really put them to the test yet as I've only wore mine a couple of times but so far I like it. I use an ultra breeze jacket normally when I need it but I like the hat style hood from pigeon mountain much better than the one on the ultra breeze. I'll be ordering some of their jackets soon!

Acquired the NASA Version aka Ultrabreeze and neighbor acquired the Ultrabreeze Jacket Version and still to hot for Georgia, I have graduated to an inexpensive veil/shorts and Ho Chi Minh Sandals and reserve the suit & jacket for guests.

Bought the ultra breeze really like it and then bought the pigeon mountain on for my helper and one for my wife
both are good and the breeziness is great when you need extra protection on an aggressive hive
