The Sentinel Queen Bee Women’s Beekeeping Suit
The Modern Beekeeping Suit designed exclusively for women
For beekeepers, stings are an occupational hazard – which is why in 2018, we launched our ‘virtually sting-proof’ Sentinel Pro Bee suit.
We’re delighted with the fantastic response from beekeepers who have told us how the suit has revolutionized their chosen pastime. Extremely lightweight, it keeps you cool in summer months and offers the protection needed against bee stings – therefore giving the beekeeper more confidence when working with bees.
Since then, we’ve had many requests for a suit specifically designed for women. Having spent some time looking into the prospect, we could see that all bee suits are sized generically – without consideration for a woman’s size and shape. So, after much research and deliberation, we made several prototypes, and finally, the Sentinel Queen Bee Range was born.
Now we can offer women a bee suit that’s designed to fit from size 10 to 24 in a subtle shade of lilac. It has all the features of the Sentinel Pro range, but importantly it is designed to fit the characteristics of the female body.
