  • Jacket Sizing

    Small: 36"-38" chest (Fits most people 5'0"-5'7", 110-145lb)

    Medium: 40"-42" chest (Fits most people 5'5"-5-9", 135-165lb)

    Large: 44"-46" chest (Fits most people 5'8"-6'1", 155-200lb)

    Extra Large: 48"-50" chest (Fits most people 6'0"-6'5", 200-250lb)

    Jackets should not fit snugly. You will want some room inside the jacket should a honey bee end up inside with you! 

    Glove Sizing

    Gloves size is determined by measuring across the knuckles, not including the thumb (I.E. the widest point of the palm). You want your gloves to fit snugly as the leather will stretch slightly over time.

    2 1/2" - 2 3/4" Extra Small

    3" - 3 1/8" Small

    3 1/4" - 3 5/8" Medium

    3 3/4" - 4" Large

    4 1/4" - 4 1/2" Extra Large

    Great well built hive kit.

    Great well built hive kit. Easy to assemble and finish.

    Slow but sure

    The product is excellent and the customer service is excellent. The only problem is their supply chain is weak and it takes several months before the order is received. It was worth the wait however and the company was cooperative

    I wouldn't know I didn't

    I wouldn't know I didn't assemble it. since my hive arrived much later than my bee's: definitely not on time. I had to hurry up buy a used hive elsewhere. They had over 3 months to fill my order

    I love the medium bee

    I love the medium bee hive kit I purchased! It was very easy to put together and looks like a piece of furniture sitting in the field! Thanks again!

    Everything arrived well packaged, went together easily. The cedar is both nice looking and smells great!
