    Me too kb.

    I have been wearing an ultrabreeze half suit for a cpl years and it seems to me it gets really heavy when wet. Makes me wonder if there is actually much difference. It is nice to feel a breeze when there is one. I like the roomy hood, though every now and then a bee seems to get through the zipper gap.

    Oops, Off Topic comments. Sorry.

    I have never seen a Bee Pant. What does it look like? Is that how they sweat? Like dogs.

    Skivvies under a full Ultrabreeze suit for me when the Colorado sun gets intense in the summer.

    You don't need them until you need them, and then it's too late. One good hot hive will make you appreciate that Ultrabreeze full suit. I don't work hives here without mine, not because they are all hot, but because a few are.

    Dip in water BEFORE you put it on... and don't wear a shirt under it...
