    Default Well here the question, bee suits for fat guys

    I have a hood/vail combo that I got for Christmas and am currently looking for a suit which would have to be fitted to me. I am 6'2" 400+lbs barrel chested and do not think most of the suits that the catalogs offer will fit. Any ideas?

    I'm about your size and have a 4xl jacket from Dadent.com that I just love. Nice. They have full suits too.

    I have one of their jackets and it is fantastic. I am a large fellow too at 6'2'' and 335 so you should be able to get one that fits. I am going to buy a full suit from them this year.

    My ultrabreeze jacket has ample room for my 6'5" 380 pound frame.

    Ultrabreeze is simply the best.
    If it doesn't fit, you can send it back and they'll send you another size...no charge, no hassle.

    Ultra breeze looks good but if all fails a tyvek suit works great too :-)

    Do what I do, use an older pair of your blue jeans (without tears or holes, of course.) Go to Goodwill, pick up a decent white (or light colored) longsleeved shirt a size larger, and you're good to go. minimum expense. Works just fine. When they weare out, no big deal replacing them.

    In fact, I have three shirts, and when I leave an apiary, I change shirts...esp. in the summer when I sweat a lot.
    Regards,
    Steven
