Zapco: Tossing out perfect scores left and right *is* bad. But does a product have to do everything it's supposed to do, make you a million dollars and walk your dog to get that score?

I'd like to know what's missing from the Fusion Gear to earn it a 4/5 instead of a 5/5. If there's nothing wrong with it and nothing more you can think of that you wished it could do but doesn't, and it's priced in the right price range, maybe it's one of the few products that deserves a 5 out of 5.

Just a thought. :)

Wow, how could you miss what Zap said?

He was stating an opinion of a seasoned scenario paintballer. Spec Ops tailors its products for the woodballer/ scenario baller to get optimum performance out of their outlaw/ 12hr/ 24 hour game and Zap covered the bases quite well.

Not really, no. Umm, I wear a 40, 34 inseam, 6'4" tall, 250 pounds...

Yeah, I'm a big guy. And I'm still crawling into people's shorts before they know it. Let's hear it for the old school...

I'm just looking for camo for next year.

I was afraid of that. I'll probably go for the XXL, because I'd like room to move around. There's a reason I've never worn "DYE" pants. Well, the cost #1, but #2 is that they are fitted to people who aren't tall. I really want to know what they consider a 2X person over there?

That and I saw the stuff at Shatner last year, and thought "Yeah, that's the stuff." I just want an idea on the waist sizes before I buy.

And I wonder who's the model for some of these guys? I mean I've got "XL" pants from JT that would fit me if I were 3 inches shorter...

I Have used the Fusion for almost two Months now, and just got my 2nd set the other day.

Very Comfortable, Durable and Breathable, Great Fit other than being too Long, maybe its my Short Legs LOL

So Comfortable I wear them all the time , everytime I get asked where did you get those, I never seen anything like those.

Great for Repelling also

Im just a little worried about how well they hold up in the woods though. Anyone have any actual woodsball time with them? I'm just wondering how durable they are in comparision to the Marauder set. If the fusion set is just as durable or more so then I'll spend the money on it. Thanks for any input u can provide.

We've been using them for a while now and all we do is woodsball and scenarios. They have held up perfectly. Absolutely no complaints. As far as comparing them to Marauders, I think the Fusion seems much more durable but our team captain (Cops911.com) has both so I'll let him get more into detail on it.

Got my set yesterday, a day early (extra added bonus!).

I am very impressed with the pants. They had been compared to the Dye pants in quality but I was a little skeptical. Wow, was I wrong. That is not to say the [i]are[/b] the Dye pants only in camo - they are definitely styled for woodsball. Very durable fabric, they feel like they'll last for years of abuse. Excellent pocket selections: battle swab pockets, pull-through pockets, cargo pockets, etc.

I like the jersey but I was less impressed than with the pants. It is thinner material than I expected. It is similar to a Dye C4 jersey in how thin it is. I expected a jersey designed for woodsball to be a little thicker fabric. I'm sure by the summer I'll be thrilled it is light-weight. I noticed a few quality issues in the stitching, lots of very long (12 inches or more) Irish Penants on the inside of the jersey. I'm a little worried about the durability on the stitching too but we'll see how it holds up. The fit and style is rocking. Great mock-neck collar for protection. Padding on the elbows and forearm is good, padding on the shoulders is smaller than I thought it would be. I believe the purpose of the shoulder padding is for packs so it will serve its purpose quite well.

Overall, definitely a worth while investment and by far the best woodsball clothing I have seen yet.

wow, I'm impressed, they look like good quality. I usually just wear an olive drab tshirt, but the pants look great. I think I'll get a set so I won't have the possibility of getting yelled at for wearing my MARPAT cammies.

I have the same problem w/ the length lol. It's not noticable once I get my boots on but walking around the house before I leave I have to walk on my tip toes so I don't stepon the zippers.

I'm very happy w/ my fusions. I've used them 4 or 5 times now and they are very comfortable and durable.
