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, 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. These features are placed using nature-based algorithms derived from the golden ratio found throughout the natural world. Simply put, the relationship between color and shape is specifically 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). The powerful features of Fusion combine to ensure concealment at any distance.

This pattern was designed to be the most versatile pattern commercially available. It hides the hunter by aggressively scattering body shape signature on multiple levels, blending in to surroundings with innovative texture disruption and coloration, confusing depth perception and focus, and features a unique crackleture pattern that is at home in a wide range of environments. It excels close and far, in the trees and on the ground.

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.

LARGE SHAPE DISRUPTION

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

SMALL-MEDIUM TEXTURE DISRUPTION

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 blend the hunter in to their surroundings and ensure that alerted prey has a more difficult time identifying anything.

DISRUPTIVE COLORATION

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.

FOCAL AND DEPTH CONFUSION

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 by the controlled contrast and disruptive coloration.

LIGHT AND DARK CRACKLETURE

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