Dadant shipping was $19 swarm commander was $6 ? That's the American way that is why I shop around
I can also attest for the altra breeze, we own several of them.
The inventor was a long time member of this site, as is his sister.
Made in USA
Well I order my suit on the 8th and got it today super fast shipping ? I talked with Scott about what size to order and he got it right on , so if you do order one I would suggest you check with him first . The suit is very well made, the vail is plenty far away from your face so you could never get stung it does have Velcro around the sleeves it does not have it down on the ankles but it does have heavy elastic around the ankles , all the zipper are good quality I don't see any problem with them it does have a Velcro flap were the zippers come together at the vail and chest, I cannot compare it to the ultra breeze suit but the suit is a quality suit and should last for years
I cringed at the price of the UB suit but finally broke down and bought one last year. I do not like the style of hooid it came with so I use a different one. Other than that it is well worth the price IMO. I can't attest to the other ventilated suits but if any of them are made in china then I can say, without hesitation, that they are garbage. Yup, blind judgement. I will never buy a suit made in china.
