    Who has the best/least expensive beesuit for children? This would be for an 11 yr old... I have seen many... tough to decide.

    In my opinion??? An adult, small dadant jacket. Let the kid wear jeans and boots, with large rubber bands around the ankles. Buy a kid's suit and you will have to do it again in two years.

    If An-Nahl is satisfied, for anyone else who may read this, if you have a childs suit, please PM me. No sense starting another like thread, if I can add to this without hijacking the thread.

    I don't have a child's suit, but it would be a good idea to start a "circulation" of lightly used childrens' suits. My friends and I pass around kids' wet suits and life jackets, and it is a great thing.

    Seems like just buying one (or three) new suits would not be bad as they do not lose their value over time.

    I just bought my 12 year old daughter a bee jacket/veil for $26 on ebay. *It came in two days and is new. *It is a very nice quality suit and size S fits her perfectly. *She wears a 14/16 in kids. *

    I picked up a youth jacket from Pigeon Mountian Trading for $35. The zips are plastic but seems to be decent build quality and the breast pocket has some nice, real, embroidery. It's much nicer than the $30 jacket I bought for myself from Pigeon Mountain. We'll be buying one more at least.

    We just ordered my 8 year old a full bee suit from this place. It was very reasonable. I'll report on the quality when it arrives.
