I don't think you can find a better bee jacket anywhere. I also have the super suit, and have been in some extremely hot ferrel hives with no problems.
Perfect fit. Tight waist. I used to have to wear an extra belt to keep bees off my belly. WRm enough for 60 degree days with just a t shirt. Haven’t used it in our 95 degree days yet but already I like the comfort and sleeve fit. The fencing veil seems to tip all the way forward though. As long as bees can’t sting the back of my head, it’s perfect and I will be ordering more from Texas Bee Supply as others wear out.
Very well made jacket. Love the veil zipper for easy access. Very breathable,.good elastic on the sleeves and waist.
I bought this jacket as a backup for when I did not need to wear a full suit. I tried it on at home and it will be great. The material and construction is similar to my UB suit and the zippers are also heavy duty but work more smoothly than my full UB suit. I’m tall and big so I got the XXXL. The sleeves and chest fit great as does the fencing style hood. I like how long it is and that it has a strong elastic around the bottom.
Cant log on to ur site. Have three different platforms. All have security concerns. Guessing youve been hacked
Every jacket i buy ALWAYS has zipper issues. Why can't someone manufacture a quality jacket which doesn't have zipper problems?? I wear my jacket almost everyday and frequently work hives here in southwest Florida. I was hoping I'd get better quality but its no different than purchasing anywhere else. Extremely frustrating when your not just a hobbyist who occasionally opens a hive
Love the super jacket .. I was motivated to buy it when the girls piped me 16 times on my trip arm(sweat had the old suit sticking to me.). Not do with this one as it’s cool see and they can’t sting through it.
Really well made. The perfect present for my bee-loving husband.

Great Father's Day gift. He has the jumper, and it was inconvenient getting into it. He likes this very well because it is much more versatile for his needs.
Very pleased with Texas Bee staff they treat everyone as a best friend. Very friendly and show to care about customers needs. They are not trying to sell to you instead they answer for your needs. Their products are of the highest quality. Fun place to visit. I sit at home and think up excuses to go see them. Love the whole atmosphere whether ordering on line or shopping in the store. Thanks again for the products, friendship and sharing knowledge.
The jacket is well made and has great ventilation and not one sting so far. Ordered a 2xl by accident, should have Ordered a large but it still works.
Brass zippers make this a premium jacket. Great product!
Very high quality suit! Was very pleased with my order. I ordered late one night and received my order with in 48 hours. I see what the bzzzz is all about.
This truly is a great jacket. It is very well made and super cool inside. I liked it so much I just purchased the ventilated pants to go with it.
The jacket works great. The sleeves and body are the perfect length. I love feeling the breeze blow through the jacket while knowing the bees can't sting through the thickness.
Fits great feels great looks great zips nice pockets work well.. it’s just a beauty !!
After using a full body suit previously, I feel even more comfortable & protected in just this jacket and jeans. I could visibly see bees trying to sting through it and not one got through; and the bees didn't get caught in the cloth either! Breezy, comfortable, waist and wrists stayed put, without cutting off circulation. I particularly like the headroom. 10/10
This is a great jacket with a wider field of view than my previous one, no seams or hood-style back to get in the way. It is cooler than other bee jackets because the air can flow freely through the main body of the jacket and the veil, making it easier to breathe and creating a more comfortable working environment.
I have the full suit with the fencing hood as well, great suit but it gets hot in the summer. I order the jacket with the round veil and it works great for quick jobs like feeding or a peek into a super. The round veil is seems to be much cooler. These are well made and worth the money, buy one and be done.
Highly breathable jacket making work in the bee yard much more enjoyable. Appears too thick for honeybees to sting through, although they rarely stung through my older, warmer jacket, so I could be wrong.
I also appreciate the better visibility provided by the round veil.
There are several features with this jacket that I feel were improvements over the suit. The elastic cuffs on the arm sleeves are perfect. If you wear nitrile gloves you might want to put them on first. the cuffs are plenty snug. I also love the protection at the zipper junctions. The Velcro patterns are prefect for a complete separation from the ladies. This jacket is cool, comfortable and superb protection. Only one issue, the hood stands very tall. It becomes an issue when working on certain types of removals. Other than that minor issue, it is another great product from the Texas Bee Supply. They are always courteous and fast turn around on orders.
Thank you for the quality products.
I like the way. The hood is easy to zip on. I don't have to fight it. I should have bought another. Probably going to.
Excellent jacket. Well built. Cooler than my old jacket.
Much cooler than my old jacket and protects from hot bees very well. Feels heavy, but way more comfortable than the jackets i have worn in the past. The zippers work great and are well protected at the ends. Worked my hottest hive today and the worst i got was buzzing noise.
We love our TBS jackets!
