    Maybe you can come to the store soon and check out jackets out. I actually have had them made slightly longer than typical. I am a bee removal guy and uncovering "crack" isn't something I'm fond of with pissed off bees.

    Scott,

    No I have not sir. I myself am a suit guy and not a jacket guy. I watched the video of the jacket. Do you have a video of the suit and of the inside of the suit?

    I am very tempted too. The Dadant ventilated suit is close in price and I have seen it in person so, it is a contender for me as well so I am VERY interested in your assessment and review.

    Same here. A) I'm not 100% certain beekeeping is something I want to do, I'm 95% sure, but I'm going to go play with someone else's bees for a while, B) I'm on a limited budget and could use that $$ on other supplies. I've also been in contact with Scott and seems that customer service is priority with him, that goes a long ways (I'm not saying CS isn't great with the others, I don't know, haven't dealt with any of the yet).

    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

    Thanks
    Astrobee...sorry for the delay in at getting back to you. If you've seen the "clear vue" veil that brush mountain carries...it's much like that. We'll have a much better price point. Also all the veils we sell are interchangeable with all our suits and jackets.

    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.
