Made from a cotton polyester blend our heavy-duty bee jackets are extremely comfortable and easy to throw on for a quick check on the ladies. Double Velcro enclosures provide protection from pesky bees trying to crawl inside your jacket.
Our heavy-duty bee jackets have a zipper-front, easy-to-zip detachable mesh veil, and the elastic bands around the wrist allow for maximum protection. All zippers on our bee suits and jackets are durable polyurethane coated YKK vislon zippers with a metal pull that will last you many seasons. Another convenient feature is thumb straps that attached to the wrists of the jacket which keep the sleeves from creeping up under your gloves.
We’ve found that other bee jackets don’t have enough pockets, so we’ve designed ours with a convenient chest pocket and two waist pockets which allow you to store your tools while working with your bees hands-free.
This jacket will fit most people who weigh 125-150 lbs and are around 5'5" tall.
It's important to make sure that you choose the right size beekeeping jacket. If you choose a beekeeping jacket that's too small or too large, it won't be comfortable and more importantly it won't provide the best protection while working with your bees. Here are a few helpful hints on picking the right size beekeeping jacket.
- Most people will fit into the same size jacket that they wear in a t-shirt.
- Can't decide if you should get the large or the XL? We always recommend picking the larger size.
To make sure you choose the right size beekeeping jacket, you can measure the circumference of the widest part of your chest by placing the tape under your arms and wrapping it around your torso.
