I'm tall (6' 5") but the fit was ok. The netting on the hat goes all the way around... Good for air flow but the fit caused the netting to lay against the back of my neck. Was just waiting for a bee to land back there and decide that was a good target. Solved that issue by laying a towel across the back of my neck inside the suit.
So far, good value for the price. Will very likely purchase another.
I'm not a super big guy but I am 6' and slim, the sleeves are plenty long and the hat is not tight. It feels like putting on an oversized sweatshirt but one made of lightweight yet stiff fabric. I imagine someone around 250# would be comfortable in it. The hood has a zipper to open but does not come off completely.
The bottom and the cuffs have elastic to keep everything out that is not trying too hard to get in.
This is not a wear it every day quality, it's a wear it a few times a season for a couple hours quality. But if you are not rough with it and take care it should last several years.
I gave it five stars because I am judging the quality by the price paid and in that it is a good value.
However, it is good for the backyard beek that gets into their hive once a week. It is perfect as a backup suit. It is perfect for a second suit for when you want to show someone around your hive(s). It is ideal for keeping in the car with your nuc to catch those swarms.
My wife does the bulk of the beekeeping chores, so I didn't want to spend $100+ on a second suit for me. For $20, this is exactly what I needed. I'm going to get two more for each of the kids.
I'm 6'2" and 230lbs. XL was loose on me which is what I wanted.

First off, I ordered an X-large, what I received is not an extra large. It might be in some Asian countries but not here in Canada. No harm I figured I would just need to get something larger for the fall when I need to wear something under it to keep warm.
I then focused on the head gear and I have to say, the people who designed this obviously have never had to wear it working with bees. Yes there is mesh 360 degrees which under the brim but that's the only good thing, and a bad thing as well. The mesh located at the rear has holes that are FAR too large, a bee can easily get her stinger through these holes. Sure it provides ventilation but no protection.
Secondly, the brim isn't as wide as the image makes it appear. In the images it looks like the brim reaches almost from the outside of one shoulder to the other, not the one I received. In the past they may have been selling a different outfit that was actually manufactured to fit like the one in the image. In fact the mesh sleeve and brim is so narrow that when turning my head even partially to one side the mesh easily comes in contact with my neck and opposite cheek. Even if I pulled up on the shoulders it still isn't wide enough to keep it off the neck or cheeks. Now put a few ticked off bees on there, angered at having her hive intruded upon and there will be pain, much pain.
The only good thing I found was that the length of the jacket overall was very good, It easily covered well below the belt line, even when not pulled down tight. The sleeves also had good length and easily stayed at the wrists even when stretching out my arms. There is however NO elastic loop at the sleeve end that I could use to keep the sleeves pulled down like most other suits have.
I can only make one recommendation, avoid this suit.
I have two complaints: (1) there is no fabric label and no washing instructions; and (2) It would be good if the hat and veil were completely removeable to make it possible to wash the jacket all by itself. As it is, I have no idea how to wash this item.
Otherwise, I am very happy that I will finally be able to work in the yard without getting eaten alive!
We also bought the Extra Large - Size & quality was great. We have tried to purchase more of the Extra Large & it shows none available?
The large size you can purchase on Ali-express for half the price.
