Well, i ordered my ventilated bee suit from Golden Bee out of LA. http://www.goldenbeeproducts.com/
A friend of mine bought one for Christmas and brought it to the Powhatan meeting last week. I must say all my concerns about the hood were gone. It is an odd shape much like a cylinder, but compared to the "other" brand which uses the "floppy" type of hood that my cheap back-up jacket has, i am happy. I hate a hood that flops around...
Golden Bee's hood uses a "sweat band" on the inside to hold the hood stable and in place. It's A Ok in my book.
I look forward to spending this August etc in a pair of shorts and short sleeve shirt NOT sweating to death in my new ventilated suit!
Its well worth the money.
