Our veils offer superior visibility and sun protection and are made with high quality materials meant to work as hard as you and your bees! Each veil is made by hand in small batches in Portland, OR.
The tie front style has a wrap around ties to secure the bodice to your body, the bow can be tied in the front or the back. The sport style has a paracord and toggle closure which offers quick and easy adjustment.
We use a UPF 50+ woven sunhat that is adjustable up to 57 cm head circumference (additonal sizes upon request). Our veil bodices are constructed with 100% premium cottons.
Great for: Hot weather beekeeping, apiary tours, photo shoots, media promotions, special occasion beekeeping, swarm catching, also durable enough for everyday bee work.
Versatile: Can be worn with a traditional bee suit (over or under), over or under overalls, over or under a jacket, or over a shirt.
How to wear: Nobody wants bees in their bonnet! To keep curious bees from crawling into your veil, make sure that the fabric sits snugly over the tops of your shoulders (not down the sides), then use the adjustable drawstring to tighten the bodice.
Disclaimer: When worn correctly our veils offer great protection, however our veils do not offer 100% bee tight coverage like a full bee suit would. Use your best judgement for how much protective equipment you need to wear depending on the temperament of your bees.
If you fall in between sizes or have a long torso, we recommend going a size up.
