    I tried the email link on Ultra Breeze web page and it does not work - orders@ultrabreezesuits.com And does anyone have the correct email address and do they have a phone number?

    I really like the full Brushy Mountain bee suit. It is made in America. I think it is important to buy a bee suit made in America.

    I love my ultrabreeze jacket. Yes, they cost more. But you get what you pay for.

    I got a ventilated full suit from Jester as it was only 150, works great

    I typically either use just a hat/veil or my Golden Bee jacket, which I absolutely LOVE.

    If I had to choose just one I'd go with the golden jacket.

    I hve really enjoyed my PM ventilated suit for a year and a half. I do have to say though,that the seams under the arms have started coming apart and had to be resewn. I have washed it twice in the washing machine, though (on delicate) and air dried. Perhaps that contributed.

    I always add a little bleach to the washing machine. So, I buy a suit that will hold up to bleach. I put 1/4 cup of bleach in the washing machine. I detach the veil and wash that separately -no bleach. I hang dry the bee suit.

    The reason I add bleach is that I was told this is a good disinfectant. I go between a few yards. Maybe 1/4 cup of bleach is too much. I put the load on large with just the suit and the cycle on gentle fast. I wash my suit quite often.

    I have the ventilated suit from Pigeon Mountain. the elastic at the left wrist gave up in less than 6 months. not the quality I am expecting from a jacket at this price. Never gotten a sting through it. The ventilation is nice but there are other answers to heat. and if suits are not more rugged I will simply go with the cheap stuff and compensate in other ways.
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.

    I have the ultra breeze full suit and think it is well worth the price. You can get stung through it, but only if you crush a bee against the suit.
