Bee Suits

Bee Suits This full length, high quality and heavy duty Polycotton beekeeping suit is equipped with a fencing style hood. Besides the standard pockets in the trousers and chest area there are also pockets just above the knees, narrow pockets on the upper arms and side pockets for your hive tool.
The wrists and ankles are elasticated and the ankles have zips for ease of putting on. There are elastic retaining loops at the ankle and wrist to prevent "riding-up".
The veil is fully detachable from the suit for machine washing.

Choosing the Correct Size

Suits and Jackets. The measurements in the Table below should be used as a guide to selecting the correct size of garment for you. Remember you should wear the protective clothing over other clothing to ensure full protection. Therefore, the Waist measurement of the protective clothing should not be the measurement you normally use for selecting trousers. Add at least a couple of inches to your normal size to allow for any trousers worn underneath.   Better still, measure your waist and chest etc., whilst wearing clothes and then add a bit for comfort.  Finally, we strongly recommend you choose a size a shade on the large size to ensure comfort and maximum protection. We will of course offer a full refund or exchange if you select the wrong size. You only need pay for the return postage.

 * Height - is the maximum height of the beekeeper.  If the suit is too small for your height the hat brim will be pulled down if you look up.
The Extra Large is very large and if you have any doubts order the Large - we can always swap them if you are not completely happy.

Gloves . Gloves are sized by measuring around the widest part of your hand - excluding the thumb, i.e. the circumference of the palm at its widest point. This distance in inches is your glove size. For example, 7.5" = Small, 8" = Medium, 9"= Large and 10"+ =XLarge. If in doubt tell us your shoe size and that is normally your glove size in inches - strange but true!
