This type of hard-shell can be dangerous, because it bolsters my confidence in extreme-condition activities far beyond my skill level.
Like all of the L.A. products I've owned, the Fusion is impeccably made. This one is loaded with technical features. A serious peace of gear. Top of the line in every respect. Bulletproof but flexible, Waterproof but amazingly breathable. Form-fitting in the torso but a little looser in the arms-important when your layered up, squinting through the blizzard, and it's time to reach up for that next ledge. It doesn't ride up. Only 17.5 oz. in Medium! The hood is flawless. The best Pro-Shell value on the planet right now (STP clearance)
