got this few weeks ago, used it in MAMMOTH for 2 days of DH riding and am very happy with my purchase.
it fits great, for a minute i felt like it was a little loose, but after riding 2 days i can say that it was all in my head. suit fits very snug, elbow/shoulder protection sit where it suppose to and doesnt move around.
i took a good fall on my right side and elbow/arm protecting plates definitely saved me.

it vents really well as long as you're moving. the only time i would get hot is when i stopped moving, but i had a short sleeve jersey on, so because the suit is black my arms were getting a little toasty, but i feel like this would easily be fixed with light color L/S Jersey.
suit is very light weight and you really dont feel it getting in a way of anything.
the only thing i would adjust was the strap that goes across your stomach that holds the back plate, and i would only loosen it up a bit if i had a long climb ahead of me so it wouldnt cut into my gut,
otherwise i am very happy with this suit.

so i used it for the first time this weekend at MAMMOTH,
its my first Full Face helmet so i have nothing to compare it, but all i have to say, is helmet is very light, and very comfortable, i have a large head *(7 3/4 in new era) i got the XL, its tight, but a in a good way tight.
temps were 45F at the top in the morning to 90F during the day, and helmet vents/breathes just fine when you're riding downhill, channels air pretty good. it does get hot when you're standing around or climbing a bit, but thats to be expected. overall i was very happy, especially for this price.
there is one drawback: seems like its the helmet of choice for the rental shops/mountain shop, so everyone with a rental bike had this same helmet, but thats the only thing i didnt like

picked up this helmet on sale for $50, thats half off, great deal on hucknroll.
i have a large head 7 3/4 so i got L/XL and its got a great fit. i really like the visor. it vents really good with exception on slow climbs, then vents arent the best.
the only issue i had so far is that the visor is held in place somewhat lightly. so it can pop out when you hit it very lightly. but its very easy to snap it back in place. otherwise great buy at $50.
