1 review for “Traditional” bee jacket with zipper and hat

  1. Suzanne Read (verified owner)

    After having recently taken up beekeeping and having already bought ourselves full overall style fencing suits, we decided after seeing a friends jacket that we would upgrade to this style, and have to say that it is a fabulous product!

    The jacket style makes it very easy to put on and take off, the suit is very well made, fits exceptionally well and gives a good sense of security, even if the bees are a bit energatic! The veil and hat fit well, are easy to take on and off and do exactly what they are designed for!

    Delivery was superfast, and BeeBasics have been a pleasure to deal with on all levels! I would not only recommend the product, but also the service to any and all that need products they stock!

    Thanks very much guys!

Find your size

Size does matter, at least to us. While you might not win any fashion awards, we want you to feel comfortable. Our suits and jackets come in small, medium, large and extra large sizes, and we do have some extra extra large. Beekeepers are not however as conveniently sized.

This clothing is intended to last. It needs to be right. If in doubt, go large. Remember to allow for the clothes you are wearing, particularly in winter. Baggy is good. Don’t be afraid of offending your bees. They will not recognise or respect style. Should the chosen size prove wrong, we will happily exchange for another size. Personal callers, by prior arrangement, can try before they buy.

The suits and jackets are generously cut with back pleats. The suits are also long in the body. You might be pleasantly surprised! Made to measure can be arranged, at additional cost.

If you are uncertain or want help, please contact us.

As a guide, we suggest the following groupings:

XXXSn/a (child's size)4’6″
XXSn/a (child's size)4’9″
XSn/a (child's size)5’0″
