Best or a decent beekeeping suit brand?
« on: October 22, 2019, 04:58:56 am »
Folks I see there are a few brands of beekeeping suit on the market. I'd like one of the complete protection suits. Being I am in the wet tropics where summer may push 45 degrees and humid would any particular brand or type stand out over the others here? Id be after anything possibly cooler, and good quality. Or just great quality if nothing is going to be cooler :)

Hard to beat Ultra-Breeze.  The next nearest is Golden Bee Products.

Both of the above have metal zippers, good materials and are made in the USA.

Hi i am in the same predicament about getting my gear only i live at the other end of the country one brand that has caught my attention is oz armour although they might be a little more expensive they seem to look the goods a few different brands about flow hive is another one that probably might be worth a look at as they are a big retailer of hives and probably would not sell rubbish ,i certainly would not buy one from ebay or alibaba or any of those chinese sites probably end up with nothing more than a chem suit with a hood .whatever you buy keep your dollars here in aus and help aussie sellers and companies
