Jawadis Bee Suit
My wife decided that my old bee suit was beyond use and threw it away, I was devastated, that suit served me well for years, the veil was bent out of shape and the knees were worne almost through, it was no longer white, but more of a brown color. I am sure all my bees will die now as my lucky suit is gone...
But alas it was time to find a new one and having been familiar with Sheriff suits, as I have one as a spare, I started looking at fencing style suits... I didn't want plain white so I came across Jawadis out of Florida. The price is great, full body suit with gloves for 70.00 plus 12.00 shipping. I ordered the wrong size and they replied quickly to my email and accepted the return and sent out a larger size. The quality of the suit it's self is great, comparable to what I would expect from some of the bee supply houses. The veil is larger then it needs to be and does not hold a good shape like a Sheriff does, but this is not a 200.00 suit so that doesn't matter to me.
I wanted blue and the closest thing they had was purple which looked kinda blue on the website, but on arrival it is quite purple, so I will look a little funny, but overall I am happy with it. Maybe I will paint my hives to match.
Overall a great suit for the price, and the customer service was great. They are made in Pakistan however. But Pakistanis need jobs too.
