  • 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

Very pleased, looks great

I purchased the kit in cedar with the windows. Easily assembled, t didn't take me long to get it together and oil it. I used a shorter screw and weatherproof wood glue to secure the handles.

Quality product

From the beautiful wood to the easy to assemble directions. This is a quality product from start to finish. The beekeeper woman I know says I did a great job with my choice. Only reason I gave 4 stars is because I waited over a month for delivery. Otherwise very very happy.
