Designed for Australian beekeepers, by Australian beekeepers. 

This ventilated overall is exclusive to Hornsby Beekeeping Supplies. We consider it to be the best on the Australian market for quality and value. It offers unparalleled comfort and an extended range of sizes, so we're confident that we've come up with a protective overall that will suit every Australian beekeeper. 


Beekeeping gear with the extra features that matter

We had our 3-layer mesh products tested by both professionals and hobbyists, and on their recommendation we included the little things that beekeepers appreciate:

  • Velcro tabs at the cuffs.

  • Elastic to draw the overall in at the waist. 

  • Metal zips for durability.

  • Heavy duty material at wear points, including at the knees and at the front of the legs, so you can balance a super on your thigh.

  • Veil stiffener to keep the veil away from your face.

  • Plenty of pockets for your tools, including a pen pocket on one arm, a special pocket for your hive tool, hip pockets, and breast pockets with velcro closure.

  • Our jackets and overalls are machine-washable if you remove the veil. 


What's so special about the three-layer mesh?

3-layer open weave mesh provides excellent ventilation. You will feel much cooler when you work your bees on hot days. Additionally, the depth of the 3 layers puts space between you and the bees. Many of our customers find that they can comfortably wear a t-shirt and shorts under their 3-layer mesh overall. Most of our staff wear these overalls, so we're confident in saying that if you want the best protective gear made for Australian conditions, then you can't go much further than this. 


What size overall should I get?

Beekeeping garments are designed to be baggy. The sizing may seem 'off' if you are trying to select an overall based on your chest measurements. For instance, the chest measurement of a large 3-layer mesh overall is more like A 2XL t-shirt in regular sizing. The measurements on the size chart reflect the overall, not your own measurements, so it is best to go by the height as a guide. If you are not sure what size to get, please contact our friendly staff.  If your overall does not fit, we will exchange it as long as you have not worn it to work your bees. 

Our charming model Mike is 177cm tall and is wearing a size medium. Rick has kindly modelled the hat veil for us.  

The overall has a throwover 'Sherriff-style' hood, although you can choose to replace the hood with a zip-on traditional-style hat veil, if you wish.

Please note that no bee suit protects against 100% of stings. You may even get stung taking it off. Stay safe out there. 

Well suited!!

Great suit, i have never been stung wearing this suit. The ventilation is great for warm weather (and if it's cool weather you can always wear a jumper underneath!). Super quick to take on and off too.
