I purchased this bee suit because I need to work with our bees but I have become allergic to their stings. The suit was here is a couple of days and I was anxious to try it out. I was a bit apprehensive about it being made mostly of mesh but found that the bees cannot sting through the space created by the larger mesh that is sandwiched between the inner and outer fine mesh.
While my friends were roasting in their fabric bee suits I was cool and safe inside of my ventilated suit and did not get a single sting, although the little critters certainly tried. I am so impressed with this bee suit that I ordered one for my wife as well. Just make sure to order larger than you would normally so that the suit fits on you loosely. I ordered the XXL for myself and I am 6' tall and 200#. It leaves plenty of room to maneuver around without creating tight spots. The gloves that come with the suit are great as well. My friend now want this suit as well. Great suit and I could not be happier.
