Sizing Chart

Bee suits are meant to be worn over clothing, so we suggest that you pick a size larger than your normal clothing size. This will provide ample room for your clothing underneath the suit and will create a loose, comfortable fit.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BEEKEEPERS SUIT SIZE

The most important sizing measurement is the torso or nape to crotch shown in the sizing chart. To properly calculate this measurement, begin by measuring your own body from the top of your shirt collar to about 15cm below the bottom of your crotch.

The next important measurement to consider is the waist band circumference, which is an elastic waistband. You will want the elastic waistband to fit your individual size.

When gathering your measurements, also consider the type of clothing you will wear underneath your suit when managing your hives. If you happen to live in a cool climate, you may want to wear a sweater or jumper when measuring your size.

Sizing Example: A typical Male 6 Foot 180lbs (183cm tall and weighing 80kg) will fit both a Medium or Large Sized Beekeepers Suit. However, when wearing the size Medium suit, simple tasks such as bending over the hive may lift the ankle cuffs over your boots and cause the suit to feel tighter.Therefore a LARGE would be the preferred size. 

SIZING CHART

Please note that measurements are of the suit fabric itself. In order to properly use this chart, you will need to compare the chart to your own body by size measuring over the top of your clothing and include additional length for movement.
