B. J. Sherriff are a family-owned beekeeping company in Cornwall, England, specialising in quality handmade protective wear. HBS is the exclusive Australian supplier of Sherriff protective wear.

The Sherriff Apiarist overall is B. J. Sherriff's best-selling product, originally designed in 1968, and tried and tested over decades. It offers full protection and is suited for both amateurs and professionals. This top-quality overall should last for years, if not decades. In fact, we have sold replacement veils to beekeepers who have been running these suits for twenty years. 

  • Made from smooth, robust poly-cotton with double-stitched seams. WIth the hood detached the suit can be washed in the machine. 

  • Traditional-style hood with Sherriff's 'Clearview' mesh.

  • Elasticated cuffs at the wrist and ankle. The cuffs have wide elastic, velcro for adjustment, and a thumb loop to make it easier to pull them on over gloves. There are zips extending up from the ankles so you can put the suit on without taking your boots off. 

  • Sherriff has designed this overall with numerous pockets for all your bits and pieces. There are roomy hip pockets, breast pockets with flaps secured by velcro, a pocket made for a pen (or an Epi-Pen, if you need one), and a clip for your keys.

  • The hood has an easy-pull zipper, so you can undo it and throw it back on your shoulders with ease. 

  • Relaxed fit. 

The original, and the best. You will not be disappointed.

Best suit on the market. Very well made. Will last many years if looked after. I recommend this product

Synthetic fibres causes prickling sensations

A nice lightweight and tough bee suit. However the synthetic fibre in the seams has caused me intense prickling surprises around the neck area that felt almost as intense as a bee sting.
