First Lite patterns obliterate the human shape by utilizing a proprietary mix of nature-based algorithms in coordination with disruption and focal confusion techniques. Put more simply, the relationship between colors and shapes has been specially designed to fool the brain by resembling recurring patterns found in nature. Derived from the golden ratio found throughout the natural world, Specter™, Fusion™, and Cipher™ dissolve into their surroundings, unlike anything else.
First Lite Specter, Fusion, and Cipher are the most versatile patterns available to hunters due to their careful design and ensured concealment no matter the proximity, season, or terrain. Created using the same scientific platform, all three of First Lite's proprietary camo patterns use trademarked technology, which provides equally exceptional concealment at close range and a distance. When it comes to whitetail hunting, First Lite Specter uses the proven technology of its predecessors (Fusion and Cipher) but expresses shapes, colors, and fragmentation unique to the whitetail environment and tree canopy.
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. Hunters virtually disappear into their surroundings at any distance – short or long – lending confidence and near-perfect stealth, whether in the trees or on an alpine ridge.
First Lite's Cipher pattern leverages the proven working principals of Fusion and applies them to landscape palettes with less color. Cipher emphasizes the narrower color spectrum found during the autumn and winter months in both hardwood and western environments. With its muted coloration and Fusion-inspired DNA, Cipher is a deadly weapon in every hunter's arsenal.
Specter is the next evolution of First Lite camo made specifically for whitetail hunters. Leveraging our scientific, nature-based algorithm used in Fusion and Cipher, this camo pattern incorporates a color palette, shape disruption, and environmental flexibility finely tuned to the demands of hunters within the whitetail heartland. Field tested in every season and all environments outside of a vacuum, Specter is proven to work and excel for those who want to push the boundaries of whitetail hunting.
Waterfowling is a grind. 2:00 AM wake-up calls, freezing rain, driving whitecaps; it's not for the faint of heart. With this experience in mind, we created a camo pattern, Typha, and a line that's rooted in bombproof construction and smarter design, culminating in deadly efficacy for the most dedicated duck and goose hunters – the fanatics, the guides, and the 100+ day workhorses. This gear and Typha has been tested across every flyway in North America, from the Chesapeake to the Columbia, from Louisiana to Minnesota. The result will change waterfowling forever.
