Re: another vented suit thread
I thought I'd throw this out there. I didn't like the fencing hoods either, so I bought a round veil with cotton hat to replace the veil on my ventilated jacket. The first time I used it, I got stung through the hat about 15 times on the top of my forehead. I had to start wearing a "terry cloth" headband over the hat. I hated every minute of that. I went back to a fencing veil when I got an ultrabreeze a few months ago. It fit's much better than the fencing veil on my cheap vented jacket. It stays where it's supposed to instead of the screen sliding back against my face.
The more I learn about bees, the less I know.
