Keep Yourself Protected With Cool Shield Ventilated Beekeeping Jacket


  • Machine washable
  • Sizes XS – 10XL
  • Heavy Duty YKK zipper
  • Deep pockets with velcro closure
  • Three layers of ventilated fabric
  • Removable Fencing Veil


This Cool Shield ventilated beekeeping jacket is perfect for the long, hot summer and lingering warmth of fall. The triple-layered, ventilated fabric keeps you cool, while the layering method prevents the bees from stinging you as their stingers aren’t long enough to reach your body. Our fully ventilated bee wear has high-quality brass YKK zippers, three layers of ventilated fabric, and two deep pockets at the legs with velcro closures. Because we have quality standards far above the competition, we can guarantee the quality of the product that you receive. And, we can set a price that you, our customer, will be sure to love.

These jackets are machine washable. The jacket and hood should be separated and washed on a gentle cycle. Make sure to choose your size at checkout. We recommend ordering at least one size larger than you typically wear, so as to allow for movement and flexibility as you work.

We also sell Bee Shield Beekeeping Suits and Cool Shield Beekeeping Suits.

Cool Shade Jacket Review

Like the jacket good quality the only two things I would change is the wrist velcro and zipper. Think it would be even better if the elastic bands for the wrist were tighter that may help the velcro issues. The zipper on my suit was orientated for a woman unless I receive that style and didn't notice. All in all good suit for the price!!

Ok, but I misjudged sizing and am waiting for the exchange.

I can't really give much of a review at this time. Unfortunately, I ordered a size too small and had to return for exchange to a larger size. Blythewood was very helpful and responsive. They sent the reordered item right away. I haven't received it yet as deliveries by USPS are way jacked up right now.

Not as pictured

Jacket is okay. The issue is it's not as pictured with cuffs being a foot of rough velcro instead of the picture. Had to cut it to even fit in my glove. My veil is not removable even though it clearly states it is and I wanted a round veil. So be warned if you think you can change veils or get what is pictured. No customer service ever replies when I emailed about the jacket issues. They either changed the product to cheaper stuff and didn't update picture and description. Wish I went with another company.

Great budget-priced jacket

If someone is looking for a budget-priced jacket I would definitely recommend this one. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a bee jacket and I didn't need to with this one.

If I had one complaint it would be that the sleeve openings are very large on these jackets. They do have a velcro that allows you to close them up some, but it's still not ideal.

I've only used it for a few weeks so I'm not sure what longevity will be like, but it's cooler then my non ventilated suit and I haven't been stung through it yet. One day after getting it I spend 8 hours in it doing it doing a cut-out with the temps in the high 90s. I'm glad I had the jacket.

Nice and cool

Recently purchased a "cool shield" protective jacket. Very pleased with the jacket to date. It's hot and humid here so its uncomfortable. At least I can get air mvt through the jacket. That's a big help.
No stings have snuck through.
Zippers are smooth and work well even with arthritic fingers. Vail is deep enough to keep the mesh away from your face. The velcro straps work great.
All together very pleased with this purchase and would recomend to others without hesitation.
