Zip both ends of the zipper clockwise around the hood and when both ends meet they can come off.

Put it back on when you are not in a hurry. Maybe sitting in a cool, well lit room with a beverage ready.

Mine is not an Ultrabreeze but the first time I wore it to a hive inspection I managed to unzip it and couldn't figure out how to get it back together. My face was red, fortunately just embarrassment and not stings.

Study those zipper ends. One end probably has little bumps to keep the zipper from coming off, the other end is straight so it can. Took me half an hour to figure that one out when I tried to get the hood back on.

I love my vented bee suit from Mann Lake - but the three zippers drive me crazy! I finally added longer "pulls" - so now I can manage them.

Have washed my Ultra Breeze several times and never took the hood off.
I zip it closed and wash it on a gentle cycle.
Wouldn't do this if I had a machine that had an aggregator (sp), I have a front loader.

I believe that Ultrabreeze recommends folding the hood down into the body of the suit and zipping up the front zipper.
