I have been in the market for a ventilated suit for 2 seasons now. I have a HoneyMaker suit now which is okay but very hot and when you lean over you stand a good chance of a sting on the chin.
I have gone through the archives reading various posts on ventilated suits. I tried sending multiple emails to the ultra breeze person over the past 18 months and corresponded to someone on ebay selling a suit that is '25 times more air flow than Tyvek'. Since none of my ultra breeze emails were ever answered and 25 times Tyveck is still zero (0*25=0) I am still in the market.
If ultra breeze has their business model up and running then Magnet Man I am still interested just tell me where to send the money, I have no ill feelings, would appreciate a suit that looks like a good solution and completely understand it is hard to get a business off the ground. If anyone has tried the disposable suits off ebay I would appreciate the feedback. Lately I have been considering building my own out of that rug non-skid, mosquito net and a can of 3M upholstery adhesive - only question is do I spray the adhesive on the netting, the rug part or all over me?
Or maybe I could buy a fork lift and move my hives into an airconditioned honey house when I want to work them, seems like a lot of trouble convincing the wife about needing a fork lift.
