  • 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

Wonderful set

I haven't yet built it, but everything is great. The supplies are of excellent quality. The hive itself is a work of art, and very well built, worth the price.
