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.
Fits great. Looking forward to using in spring.
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!!!
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.
