100% Cotton or Polycotton Beekeeping Suits & Jackets. Cotton is a fully breathable, abrasion-resistant fabric, being cooler to wear in hot conditions. Polyester does not breathe but is more tear-resistant. Polycotton combines polyester with cotton, reducing cost. Regarding safety, cotton fibers that are have not treated for fire-resistance will tend to burn away, where polyester will melt. If working outdoors, particularly in hot climates, 100% cotton is normally the better choice.

Cowhide vs. Goatskin Beekeeping Gloves. Gloves There are a wide variety and qualities in both cowhide and goatskin, but generally speaking Cowhide gives better protection and Goatskin more feel. Goatskin can be split and shaved to a lighter weight than cowhide. This is advantageous if you desire more dexterous and a closer fit. Cowhide gives better tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and better stretch.

Breathable and soft making it vastly more comfortable to wear than Polycotton. As a thicker fabric is used (240 gsm), this cotton bee suit is more sting resistant than polycotton bee suits.

Cotton is a natural fiber, making this beekeeper jacket more sustainable, it will degrade naturally when disposed of, and is kinder to the environment. As this beekeeping jacket does not contain polyester it is more flame resistant.

Our 3rd generation Zephyros ventilated suit. With significantly improved fabrics and fasters, this is now the most sting resistant suit on the market.

Our own high-grade polycotton outer mesh with a fine coating of polished polyester to "prevent bees’ tiny legs getting caught on any lose fibers". This also helps make the suit very durable and tear resilient.

The 5 mm gap created by all layers gives all essential distance between you and the bees. As a bee’s stinger only protrudes 1.5 - 3mm, a bee sting can’t reach you.

This ventilated suit mesh has varying holes sizes. The outer mesh holes are very small to prevent a bees’ abdomen from getting through or caught. The larger holes the in second layer improves airflow and the durable inner mesh increase the robustness and longevity of the suit.

These three layers combined makes this suit incredibly breathable and sting proof, it is the safest and most comfortable suit ever made...
