Review: I've been using my Fusion gear for a year now with 25+ days of paintball in that time.
My Jersey has not shown any signs of fading, only some wear on the elbows, no snags and very few loose stitches. (Yes, gentle cycle / inside out is a must with the jersey)

The best thing about the jersey is how well it keeps me cool. I've worn it during very hot conditions and was still as comfortable as I could be. The material is very breathable, does not absord or hold onto water and doesn't even seem to get warm to the touch in the sun like some jerseys or UA type shirts.
Only minor problem with the jersey in heat is that the arm/neck cuffs & elbow pads seem a bit bulky and really soak up water/sweet and keep in the heat. Not a major issue but on the really hot days it adds up.

The Jersey cleans very well. There are no signs of staining on the outside of the jersey, a few stains on the inside, but they don't show through.

Elbow pads give decent protection when getting close to the ground. And have enough surface area that with shifting / stretching of the jersey during crawls the padding still covers the elbow.

This jersey is not good in cold windy weather, obviously. Its meant to be breathable and allow heat to escape. Got to add more layers to stay comfortable on the cold / windy days.
Conclusion: Great camo gear. Very comfortable.
Only reason its not a 10 is the price is a little high and I'd like to see thinner, more breathable cuffs.
Rating:
9 out of 10
