Unparallelled Concealment

First Lite patterns obliterate the human shape by utilizing a proprietary mix of nature-based algorithms in coordination with disruption and focal confusion techniques. Derived from the golden ratio found throughout the natural world, both Fusion and Cipher dissolve into their surroundings unlike anything else. Simply put, the relationship between colors and shapes is specially designed to fool the brain and resemble recurring patterns found in nature.

First Lite proprietary patterns are the most versatile commercially available. Created using the same scientific platform and developed by Joseph Skinner, Fusion and Cipher both utilize a number of powerful features to ensure concealment at close range and at distance, in the trees and on the ground.  



First Lite's new Cipher pattern leverages the proven working principals of Fusion and applies them to any landscape palette with less color, providing more emphasis on the narrower color spectrum found in both hardwood and western environments during the autumn and winter months.  With its muted coloration and Fusion-inspired DNA, Cipher is truly a deadly weapon in every hunter's arsenal.  



Fusion has become the most trusted pattern in breakup camouflage. From western lichen, sage and pine to eastern deciduous hardwoods, the Fusion pattern and color palette are engineered to excel in a vast array of landscapes. The net result is that hunters virtually disappear into their surroundings at any distance – short or long – lending confidence and near perfect stealth, whether in the tree or on an alpine ridge.


First Lite Pattern Technology


This large shape disruption in this pattern distorts and hides the hunter's body shape by incorporating large regions of light and dark colors that work against the signature human figure.


When closer to your prey, texture based disruption is integral to hiding your shape and location. A scattering of small to medium-sized elements using the pattern’s color palette effectively blends the hunter in to their surroundings and ensures that alerted prey has a more difficult time identifying anything.


The large and small disruption supports the overall disruptive coloration found in this pattern. This advanced pattern uses a fine-tuned set of nine colors to both contrast against body outline and blend with the surroundings.


By carefully using color and algorithms based on nature, the prey’s focal vision is confused. Depth perception is affected with the use of color and the built-in sense of depth. Finally, peripheral vision of the prey is confused with the controlled contrast and disruptive coloration.


Unique to this pattern, the crackleture offers yet another level of versatility and effectiveness by further distorting the hunter’s shape by greatly contrasting against body signature.
