Review: NOTE: before i get a bunch of angry PMs or emails, this is for the fusion 7 jersey, which is made offshore.

I bought this jersey (and the pants) in... november, i think, as part of my winter gear upgrades. As it has been six months, with near on about 24 or so days of play, I feel comfortable reviewing these.

Also: before i begin, I am well aware I am extremely hard on my clothing and gear. I expect it to work when I'm on field, and stand up to all kinds of abuse. That said, while the jersey did well, it is giving up the ghost less than a year in.

To start, the jersey is very comfortable and breathable- pads on the shoulder help reduce the effect of the weight of a heavy vest on your shoulders, and the ventilation mesh in the underarm is a much appreciated feature. The Spec ops digicam is... well, effective for me, as I live in the pacific northwest (it's green here. very, very, very green) but it dosen't translate really well into other areas of the country, although the omnipat may not have this issue.

Unfortunately, the jersey dosen't hold up really well to very rough play. The material it's made of dosen't hold up to thorns or similar hazards real well, and the stitching on mine is already coming out around the wrists. As well, there are several small holes from thorns or dense bushes. although that's as much my fault as it is the jersey's, It should be made to stand up to that kind of use a little better, IMO, especially for 60$
Conclusion: In short, while it's comfortable, I can't strongly recommend this product if you're rough on gear. the simple fact is, it's made offshore, and the quality has suffered from it, I think. While it's not bad, it's not worth the price. Still, for comfort, it's hard to beat with a standard BDU top.
