Hi everyone

My current jacket has a common style inverted U shaped zippered veil. It's a great veil when you are looking down, but when catching swarms up in tree the veil falls on your face.

Are most veils interchangeable with most jackets? And does anyone have any recommendations of a good veil for staying on while looking up? I just watched a video and the guy had a chin strap, not sure if he made it or someone sells that.

Thanks and Merry Christmas

That is a fencing style hood. Keep it but wear a baseball hat under it. The brim of the hat will keep the veil off your face.
