Our Hatless Veil combines the benefits of a Square Folding Veil with a soft cover for your head. The "cap" part is a double thickness of cotton. It won't ride up or twist. The design is cooler than wearing a standard hat & veil. It comes with the elastic and string at the bottom. It offers very good protection and is quick and covenient to use.
Im a neophyte beekeeper. When I iordered my English Garden Hive kit, I chose this veil as an option after reading the reviews. I inspected and tried it on several times during the long wait for my nuc to arrive.
My bees finally showed on June 13th. While transferring the frames to my hive, I experience 2 stings; the first through my goatskin glove and the second, somewhat more noticeable, to my Adams Apple. Apparently, my head movements were sufficient to separate the right rear and side panels where they joined at the connecting cotton seam, allowing several bees to enter. One didnt like me.
I suspect that Murphys Law decreed that I found the only veil to have failed so quickly, but I must still rate my experience with this item as a 1.

Folding Hatless Veil #715
I love this veil. Ive had mine for about four years. Its my go to veil quick easy and cool. After four years of use its gotten pretty dirty. I think I may have to order another one. Fits my head fine.

Too small for me
Great veil for someone with a small head.
Only good for a max head circumference of 20inches.
Need to get a better description in the advertisement, to include hat size.
I will bee returning mine....
I use this as a backup or guest veil. I have lots of neighbors that want to know more, and I love just tossing the veil at them and inviting them to step on up to a hive.
It is a little hard to completely close off compared to the zipper veils. I used it in a pinch just three weeks ago and got a sting in the neck.
Great to keep on hand
This is the veil that I started with when I got into beekeeping. I now keep it in the car along with a box and other items I use when I go out to pickup swarms. It folds down and lays flat in the box with the other items. I have also used it when I have visitors to the bee yard.
I have been searching everywhere for the perfect beekeepers hat. My kids and I are dressing up as bees for Halloween and my Husband is dressing up as a bee keeper. It is great quality and for a great price. It is also a great product that we could actually use if we ever visited a bee farm. Love it love it love it. Received it in a great amount of time too.
