Why a Ventilated Beekeeping Jacket?

Beekeeping is a hot business and most of use beekeepers want to bee cool!, and most of it happens at the height of the day when most of the bees in the colony are out collecting honey and pollen. Make life easier for yourself and get a kiwibreeze Jacket.

These Beekeeping Jackets are made from the same material as our Ventilated Beekeeping suits / kiwibreeze suits, but in a jacket format.

Close up of MeshThese Ventilated Beekeeping Jackets are made with a three layer material which allows air to circulates around your body, but prevents bees stinging you.

Ventilated Beekeeping Jacket Bee and Wrist StrapThe Ventilated Beekeeping Jacket uses steel YKK zippers, three layers of ventilated fabric, two deep pockets at the chest and two large pockets on the hips. The sleeves are elasticated and have a thumb loop to stop the sleeves riding up your arm.

The ventilated fabric keeps you cool as well as the multi layering protects you from stings as bees stingers aren’t long enough to reach your body.

The bottom of the suit is also elasticated to prevent the jacket riding up your back to avoid any builder crack stings.

At kiwimana we have been using the Ventilated Beekeeping Suits for over three years now and find them fantastic, no more working in a damp sweat laden cotton suits all day. The kiwibreeze ventilated suit and jackets make beekeeping a joy on hot days. The material sits away from your skin, so the bee stingers aren’t long enough to reach your body. This reduces stings to a minimum.

    I have fallen in love with my ventilated jacket. Others have tried it on and feel the same. Its light, cosy and cool, and very easy to work in. The zipper areas are well designed. And your quick service was impressive.
    PS When I look down at the brand it read anamiwiK!!!! I wonder who that could be?
