Why choose Guardian Bee Apparel?

Better than the average beekeeper outfit

Each of these designs were created to keep you safe and cool while allowing you to work comfortably. Our protective beekeeping apparel line is based on the design of classic bee suits with features like elastic thumb holds and fitted ankles and wrists. Then, we added innovative features to create a line of beekeeping apparel that provides the ultimate in flexibility and comfort.

Our ventilated, 3-layer mesh material keeps you cool and confident while you are working outdoors in summer months. This fabric is highly sting resistant so you can focus on tending your hives instead of worrying about stings. We only use the highest quality metal YKK zippers, and added “z-space” around each zipper for added stability to help prevent overrun and snags. The triple zipper system gives you easy access to shirt pockets, while still offering protection.

Upper, lower, and sleeve pockets give you even more access to the tools you need. All of our pockets are reinforced to prevent blowouts. Our beekeeper suits and pants are made with hip zippers, so you can quickly and easily get dressed. The velcro closures at the wrist and ankle areas offer added protection.

Three Veil Styles to choose from

Are you wondering which beekeeping veil style will be best for you? Learn more about the differences in each of our veil styles below.

EASY ACCESS VEIL

Our patent-pending easy access veil is a large, oversized veil with our patent-pending easy access front screen. It is a good choice for beekeepers that want to keep a maximum distance from their honey bees.

The extra front screen panel will give you approximately 5 extra inches between your nose and the front screen. This added panel makes this veil front heavy, so it will naturally sit in a downward looking position. This makes hive inspection easy with no wrestling to get your veil into the correct position.

PRO FIT VEIL

The pro fit is a standard size fencing veil with our patent pending front access. It is lower profile and naturally sits upright. The pro fit is the choice of most experienced beekeepers to protect from bee stings in the field.

ROUND VEIL

Like all of our products, the beekeeping jacket and suit with round veil are made with ventilated with triple layer mesh. This fabric helps protect from stings to the head. This veil allows for 360 degrees of visibility and it also keeps you cool.

The elastic band helps keep the veil from moving around. There are also access zippers to the left and right so that you can stay hydrated and keep your eyes clear!

ORIGINS OF GUARDIAN BEE APPAREL

As avid beekeepers ourselves, we noticed that most beekeeping protective clothing was lacking. The beekeeping suits were extremely thick, heavy, and incredibly hot. This is not uncommon for many bee suits.

In order to take a swig of water to cool down, a beekeeper would have had to remove his or her entire veil, exposing our head to the bees. Standard bee veils simply did not offer easy access. They leave beekeepers without protection against bee stings when they remove the hood to drink, wipe away sweat, or taste their honey.

Most bee suits require removing gloves to unzip and remove the veil. The other option is fumbling with zippers only to be face to face with a hive full of bees. One afternoon, our company’s founder chose to continue working, rather than risk a sting. As a result, he became a victim of heat exhaustion and extreme dehydration.
