Determine Your Gear Needs Using onX

The first step to knowing what gear you need is knowing where you’ll be using it. Among other factors, consider your hunting environment, how far you’ll be hiking in, seasonal weather conditions, and the elevation you’ll gain during the hunt.

First Lite for Western Big Game

Demanding Western hunts require the right gear. Matching your camo and equipment to your hunt requires answering a few key questions: What elevation will you be hunting? How steep is the terrain? How far will you be hiking in?

Designed for Western hunters, 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.

“My favorite piece of First Lite gear is the Brooks Down Sweater. From early season archery elk to late season rifle mule deer hunting, I’ll wear it just about everyday. Plus, wrapped up in a neck gaiter it will act as a pillow for my bivy-style hunts.”

– Brian McElrea, Hushin’

Dylan Dowson

“My favorite First Lite pieces are the Uncompahgre puffy jacket and pants. On cooler hunts, I never leave home without them. Whether I use them for added warmth inside my sleeping bag on a cold fall night, or put them over my layering system to allow me to stay at my mule deer glassing knob for another two hours, the Uncompahgre pants and jacket always find a place in my pack and can turn a miserable cold experience into a productive one.”

First Lite for Whitetail Hunters

A successful whitetail hunt is the culmination of many different factors coming together. You can help put the odds in your favor by setting up for success with the right gear for your specific hunt. Consider what kind of cover and terrain you’ll be hunting — what is surrounding your tree stand? What kind of weather will you be hunting in? How far is the hike in to your stand? Answering all of these questions can help you determine the right gear for your hunt.

First Lite’s Specter camo creates large-shape disruption for whitetail hunters, distorting and hiding the human body. This visual disruption is created by incorporating large regions of both light and dark colors (macro break up) found in the tree canopy. These regions of dark and light work against the human figure at long engagement distances and angles specific to the whitetail hunter.

“The Whitetail Catalyst System is my go-to for most of the year, adding and removing layers underneath when temps start to fluctuate. Paired with my favorite piece of gear, the Sawtooth Hybrid Jacket, it makes for a killer kit that lasts a majority of the season.”

“To be a successful backwoodsman you need knowledge of the land and the gear to keep you out there longer. OnX gives me an owls-eye view of the landscape and First Lite keeps me dry, warm, comfortable and concealed. My hunting would be very different without these two.”

– Clay Newcomb, MeatEater

First Lite for Upland Hunting

An effective and comfortable upland hunt requires a particular set of equipment for changing conditions and terrain from Midwest pheasant fields and grouse-laden aspen cuts to rugged mountain chukar hunting.

While First Lite is primarily known for Western Big Game and Whitetail hunting, their office is full of avid bird hunters and that’s reflective in the versatility of the gear they design. From the bomb-proof Sawbuck Brush Pants to the versatile Merino base layers, First Lite’s apparel is designed to accompany you and enhance your hunt across a variety of terrains and temperatures as you pursue the birds you love.

Check out the Elite exclusive First Lite Upland Kit:

“Conditions change quickly and often in the uplands and any bird hunter knows the importance of having the right gear for any weather. From the heat the early season prairie to the cold of a late season hike through the grouse woods, I rely on clothing that protects me from the elements, regulates my body temperature and doesn’t weigh me down. The days when the miles rack up quicker than the flush count are the days I truly appreciate the performance and function of my First Lite gear.”

– Nick Larson, The Bird Shot Podcast

“The allure of a dry, warm truck, has put an end to many upland hunts. Whether it’s driving snow on the prairie or a soaker in the grouse woods, having the right gear will keep you comfortable longer. For over 300 days a year, I’m out in the elements, no matter if it’s -30º or 100º, working dogs or hunting birds. I rely on having the right gear for the conditions. These are the pieces I use and trust to keep me in the field day in and day out.”
