The best ventilated beekeeping jacket on the market: stingproof while keeping you cooler than a normal jacket due to a three-layer ventilated fabric. This is our favorite beekeeping jacket, and it's the same one we use in our own apiary.
The ventilated jacket features high quality YKK zippers, three utility pockets with Velcro closures, and handy thumb loops to hold the sleeves in place as you pull on gloves.
If you have ever overheated in the bee yard in your traditional bee jacket, you owe it to yourself to try this ventilated jacket. You won't regret it!

Jackets should not fit snugly. You will want some room inside the jacket should a honey bee end up inside with you!
Love the ventilated jacket, here in Southern California it gets pretty hot in the bee yard and the ventilated suit really helps.
Much coolr that tradional jackets. I removed an angry hive from an apartment. 4hrs of mad bees and not one stung trough.
It's very nice and works really well. I only gave it 4 stars because you need a mirror to zip up all the zippers properly. One over the other and push the ring out of the way.....
Perfect for those 90 to 95+ degree F afternoons in our mid-California (Davis) valley temperatures. Sizing is great (roomy) and pockets are handy. Particularly nice is being able to remove the hat/veil for washing. Highly recommend.
I got one for my friends and family to wear when they come out and it seems of very good quality. I needed some help from customer service with my order and they were very quick and extremely helpful!
