Our beekeeper suits, jackets and veils are the new standard in beekeeping apparel. Created by beekeepers, for beekeepers, our line of apparel features three different veil designs including our original easy access veil, our pro fit veil, and round style veil. Our highly-sting resistant, ventilated, 3-layer mesh material keeps you cool and confident, while our triple zipper system give you easy access while still offering protection. Upper, lower, and sleeve pockets give you even more access to the tools you need, and all pockets are reinforced to prevent blowouts. Our beekeeper suits are made with hip zippers to help you quickly and easily get dressed, and velcro closures at the bottom offer added protection. Our heavy duty beekeeping suits and jackets come in adult sizes XS to XXXXXL.
Professional beekeeper suits
Guardian Bee Apparel is made by beekeepers for beekeepers. Our founder knew, when tending to his bees in the South Georgia heat, those bulky unventilated full bee suits with a veil you struggled to remove were not what he needed. Bulky suits and hard-to-access veils have you at risk of heatstroke – or worse.
That’s why he invented a new line of beekeeper apparel – to help beekeepers, help bees! When you’re out tending to your bees, you need a beekeeping suit that will protect you from bee stings while also providing adequate ventilation and easy access. You need a veil that allows you to access your face if you need a sip of water or to shoo a curious bee away, without requiring complete removal. At Guardian Bee Apparel, we designed our ventilated beekeeping suits with this ideal in mind. Our suits come in a range of sizes, from XS to 5XL, and tend to run big.
All of our ventilated bee suits are made of highly-sting resistant, ventilated, 3-layer mesh material that’ll help keep you cool in the heat. The quality materials will withstand basic wear overtime, and meta YKK zippers are operated with ease. The added “zee” space around the zippers provide added stability to prevent overruns and snags.
Head-duty elastic around the wrists and ankles keep curious bees out, while our triple zipper system allows easy access to your shirt and pants pockets. Eight large, reinforced pockets give you plenty of space to carry around your hive tools or more.
If you’re looking for a plus-size beekeeping suit, our suits can range up to 5XL and fit a 7’ man.
All Guardian Bee veils are interchangeable with Guardian Bee suits and jackets. All of our veils zip securely to your suit, and have zippered front access to reach your face while keeping your head protected. All veils can be fully removed from the suit for hand washing. Our vented bee suits come with a choice of three different veils, including:
Easy Access Beekeeping Veil
Our Easy Access Veil is a front-facing veil that’s perfect for novice beekeepers. It provides full zippered access to the face for tasting honey or wiping away stay hairs. The weighted front panel provides an extra 5″ of distance between your face and the bees, while also naturally tilting your line of sight towards where you’d look for a hive inspection.
Pro Fit Beekeeping Veil
The Guardian Bee Apparel Pro Fit beekeeping veil is a fencing veil with our patent-pending front access. It provides a familiar style with the ease and comfort Guardian Bee promises. The Pro Fit Veil’s zipper allows you to fully access your face to remove a bee or take a swig of water whenever you please without removing your entire hood. This veil is perfect for newcomers to experts looking for a familiar style.
Round Beekeeping Veil
For the fans of the classic look, Guardian Bee’s round veil is exactly what they need. Combing the old with our innovative style. Our round veil provides a 360 degree view of your surrounding and left and right-hand zippers for access to your face. You can wipe away sweat, shoo out a bee, or taste your honey without needing to fully remove your veil.
All our veils are able to be fully removed for replacement or exchanging between our available styles.
