This ventilated bee jacket is designed to our specification and made to a high quality. We think it is an excellent product. It has metal zippers for extra durability. The veil is zippered and removable, with velcro flaps at the front and back of the neck to resist bee intrusion. The waist and sleeves are elastic to resist bee intrusion. The pockets are velcro sealable. This is slightly heavier than the lightweight ventilated bee jacket.
