The overall fit of this jacket is great! The insulation keeps you very warm, pockets are positioned well, hood fits over a helmet and zippers are top notch. Mountain Hardwear Conduit keeps you dry, (I used this jacket in near blizzard conditions). The only drawback to this jacket (and the reason for the 4 rating) is it is a little too short. I have a smaller torso than average so I thought I would be fine but no. If you use this jacket with a bib, things will be fine.

The Fuse helmet is very light! Once it's on I forget it's there. The adjustable venting works great. With the vents open I stay very cool and on cold snowy days, keeping the vents closed keeps me warm. The sound is great for this type of setup, as good as using the headphones from an iPod.

The only complaint (and the reason for the 4) is the earpads with the integrated speakers are a little tight. In defense of Giro and Skullcandy I haven't tried adjusting the straps much but the pads and more specifically the speakers inside the earpads put some pressure on my ears. It isn't painful, just a little pressure.

Overall very happy with the Fuse helmet, I would buy this again!!!

Out of the package the material was heavier than I thought it was going to be so, the first time out I assumed I would overheat. I didn't. The material breathes really well. It does an excellent job blocking the wind. I have not worn this in wet weather so I am not able to comment on that aspect. The fit is snug so if you are thinking of using this as a mid-layer or don't like a tight fit, order a size up. There are stretch panels but the material itself does not stretch.

As far as weather, In my case I get hot real easy so this is going to work excellent as a winter layer and spring outer layer.
