B J Sherriff Bee Suit 2XL



The Sherriff Apiarist All-in-One Beekeeping Suit is without compare: first designed by BJ Sherriff in 1968, it continues to be their top-selling beesuit.  A great value investment, your quality beekeeping suit will last for years and years.

The Apiarist beesuit offers extremely good overall protection as it is manufactured using a fine weave, smooth finish, quality polyester cotton which is both lightweight and robust.

Styled with extra pockets for convenience (including a reinforced hive tool pocket) and thoughtfully finished to provide a bee-tight coverage:  neat-fitting zipped neck,  elasticated wrists with velcro tabs and elasticated ankles with zippers for easy dressing as well as the original Clearview Veil, Sherriffs’ own revolutionary design made from black nylon mesh for excellent visibility and protection.  Cool and non-claustrophobic to wear.

You will agree with Sherriff’s statement – “the only suit worth having”
