Hey Roksliders, First Lite just released their new camo pattern, Fusion.  It functions completely different than the “environment-mimicking” camo patterns out there- check it out.

No pixels.  No trees.  Designed exclusively for First Lite, Fusion is a proprietary mix of shapes and colors designed to obliterate the human shape.  Fusion dissolves into it’s surroundings unlike anything else.  From 2 to 2000 yards, in the trees or on the ground, Fusion excels by removing the characteristic outlines of the hunter through a powerful set of features.  Fusion employs both macro and micro disruption as well as finely tuned distortions.  This relationship between color and shape is designed to fool the brain and resemble recurring patterns found in nature.  Unique to Fusion, the signature feature of this camouflage is its “crackalature”. Using light and dark shapes that weave throughout the pattern, the crackalature aspect further distorts the hunter’s signature shape, avoiding isoluminance (color blobbing). 




  • Large Shape Disruption (nature-based algorithms)
  • Small-Medium Texture Disruption (nature-based algorithms)
  • Disruptive Coloration (with a carefully curated pallet of nine colors)
  • Focal and Depth Confusion (both focal and peripheral vision is greatly affected)
  • Light and Dark Crackleture (further distorts the subjects overall body shape)

Another special feature of this pattern is its inherent ability to function in just about any environment AND transition between them extremely well. It was designed this way to enable and free the hunter to successfully operate in a wider variety of environments WITHOUT a change in camo.  We have been able to use all the advances brought about by digital camouflage technology, and apply it in a much more natural looking way.

No Blobs Allowed
Also important to our design philosophy was avoiding color blobbing (isoluminance). Our patterns rely on carefully controlled contrast so they remain highly effective across varying distances and focus.

And of course First Lite, true to nature, is giving away a merino wool Llano Top in Fusion to one Rokslider who visits and “Likes” their FB page here: First Lite Facebook


AND post in the comments below what piece of First Lite Gear you’d order first in the new Fusion.  I’ll draw for a winner by October 15th.  By the way, my Llano Top has almost 50 days on it and is in great shape- no tears, no fading, and no stretched-out look!  Be careful, though, with the new Fusion pattern, the elk might just step on you.

Robby Denning started hunting mule deer in the late 1970’s, only missing one season in 35 years. At 25, he gave up the pursuit of all other big-game to focus on taking the best bucks possible. He began hunting the West on a DIY budget hunting an average of 30 days a year for mule deer. Robby loves the hunt as much as the kill and the entire process from research to scouting to hunting. He’s killed four bucks over 200 inches in the last 15 seasons, mostly on easily-obtained tags. He owns a public-land scouting service and runs a private-land outfitting business helping other hunters in their pursuit of deer and elk. Robby has scouted and hunted literally thousands of square miles of mule deer country and brings a wealth of knowledge about these experiences with him. To him, the weapon of choice is just a means-to-an-end and will hunt with bow, rifle, or muzzleloader – whatever it takes to create an opportunity to take a great mule deer. He is also the author of "Hunting Big Mule Deer" available on Amazon. Robby believes all of creation is from God for man to manage, respect, and through which to know its Creator


  1. Im really hoping next season to get the Kanabs and the Llano top in fusion for elk and mule deer hunting. then get the water resistant gear for waterfowl and late season hunting.

  2. I would order either another llano or a chama hooded or not doesn’t matter! Thank you for the opportunity and providing quality gear!

  3. I would order either another llano or a chama hooded or not doesn’t matter! Thank you for the opportunity and providing quality gear!

  4. Not gonna lie, I’d go for the Sanctuary Insulated Jacket in the new Fusion pattern. The late season hunts up here in Montana can get down right brutal and even the hardest hunters need all the warmth you can muster.

  5. Been wanting a llano for a while now. That’s the price that I’ll order. Love asat. The new pattern is growing on me.

  6. I would order another Llano shirt. Its always the first layer I wear on any hunt. When its hot thats all I wear on top and when its cold that starts my layering off.

  7. Love First lite gear, I am missing the Uncompahgre Puffy though, so I would like to get it in the new Fusion pattern to see what the elk and deer think.;)

  8. From what I hear the puffy or kanab pants would be top priority on the list!! Love how ASAT and the new Fusion pattern can be used for different hunts, ie big-game, waterfowl etc.

  9. I would have to go with the North Branch Jacket.

    The other pieces of First Lite I have are BA! Just needing the North Branch and rain gear to fill out my gear set for next year

  10. I would try it first on a Chama QZ. Mine (in ASAT) has become my go-to piece every time I’m in the woods. Next, the Kanabs!

  11. I’d go with the Chama hoodie. They are beautiful and would work well for a good mid temperature day.

  12. Being a hardcore mountain goat hunter (got my 10th goat this fall), I’d love to try out the merino wool shirt for those chilly mornings on top. Great site you have here.
