Cotton/Polyester vs. Rip Stop Nylon Bee Suits
« on: March 26, 2007, 12:20:58 PM »
Hey guys, got another question:

What's the difference between Rip Stop Nylon and Cotton/Polyester bee suits?  I see in the catalogs that the Nylon is a little more expensive, but does it offer more protection from stings?  Does it keep you cooler?  Or does it just look cool?  lol

Thanks again for all your help!!!

If you wear a cotton suit in the beeyard you'll get covered with clinging bees.  If you wear a nylon suit in the beeyard the bees will seldom land on you at all.  But if you buy a Golden Bee Products suit, you won't be so hot.  :)

Good to know!  I knew there had to be something.  :-)
