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).
THIS PATTERN FEATURES
- 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.
