Ventilated Jacket with Veil

66   |  


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!


Small: 46"-48" chest (Fits most people 5'0"-5'7", 110-145lb)

Medium: 50"-52" chest (Fits most people 5'5"-5-9", 135-165lb)

Large: 54"-56" chest (Fits most people 5'8"-6'1", 155-200lb)

Extra Large: 58" -60" chest (Fits most people 6'+, 230lb+)

Extra Extra Large:  62"-64" 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!

Nice quality

The xl jacket I bought fit as described in the fit chart. Seems like a good quality overall. The only issue I have is the one I received did not have a metal zipper as shown in the item picture. This was one of the reasons I ended up purchasing this so I was a bit disappointed but decided to keep it anyway.

Best of the Best

I did a LOT of research before stumbling upon this ventilated jacket. Previously, I'd decided I'd need to fork out a ton of money to get the best beekeeping jacket I could find. After all, you need to have upmost confidence in your protective wear and you need to be able to stay as cool as possible on those hot summer days working lots of hives. Also, you need your protective wear to be of good, no great, quality to last a long time. When I found this jacket for this price, it seemed to good to be true; that I had truly found a jacket comparable to the others guys' which cost much more. When my jacket arrived, the quality was obvious. After several uses, I've NEVER regretted my decision to purchase this jacket. Love it!!!

Much coolr that tradional jackets. I removed an angry hive from an apartment. 4hrs of mad bees and not one stung trough.

Western Red Cedar is our premium wood option. It is rot resistant, dimensionally stable, insulates well, and doesn't require painting or sealing.

All of our wood is sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
