FIRST LITE GO FARTHER STAY LONGER OUTERWEAR, MERINO WOOL, ACCESSORIES


FROM THE OWNERS STAY LONGER IN 2014

FIRST LITE APPAREL BORN IN IDAHO/USA

Dedicated to helping you Go Farther, First Lite introduced our industry-leading outerwear collection in 2013 that brought Cocona’s 37.5 technology to the hunting market. We focused on the details, creating the lightest and most breathable collection of weatherproof apparel in the hunting world and received rave reviews and unprecedented demand on the 2013 western-centric introductions. The Uncompaghre Puffy redefined insulated jackets and the Boundary Stormtight shell proved that being waterproof doesn’t have to mean being uncomfortable on demanding hikes. The North Branch Softshell Pant introduced mountaineering-caliber technology to a market that demands the very best. So it was only natural that for 2014, we are dedicating our line to helping you Stay Longer. Enlisting the help of a pro staff that spans from Oregon to Georgia, we listened intently to the needs and ideas of the most seasoned white tail hunters in the game. Days upon days were spent in the stand, notes were taken, ideas shared. The result is a collection of product that brings the unparalleled First Lite quality and design to tree stands all over the continent. From the insulated, game-changing Sanctuary Jacket to the proven Boundary Stormtight Pants, from the North Branch Softshell Jacket to the Halstead Tech Fleece, the First Lite system has become even more complete. We couldn’t be more excited and invite you, the dedicated and discerning hunter, to Go Farther and Stay Longer in 2014.

FIRST LITE. GO FARTHER, STAY LONGER.

37.5™ TECHNOLOGY AT WORK

FIRST LITE + 37.5 TECHNOLOGY byCOCONA ™

37.5™ TECHNOLOGY BY COCONA PATENTED TECHNOLOGY THAT USES BODY HEAT TO EVAPORATE MOISTURE Comfort in clothing is greatly influenced by the temperature and humidity next to skin known as the microclimate. For the average person, the body strives to maintain an ideal core body temperature of 37.5° C. You are most comfortable when the microclimate next to your skin has a relative humidity close to 37.5%. When you are in this ideal 37.5 comfort zone, you are also in your ideal performance zone. Cocona technology helps your body manage the moisture in your microclimate to keep you in this “37.5 zone” of comfort and performance.

TECHNOLOGY THAT ENHANCES THE BODY’S EFFICIENT SYSTEM

Your body already has the ultimate thermo-regulating system. The perspiration vapor that comes off of skin during activity cools the body when working hard. In fact, each gram of evaporated sweat releases 580 calories of stored heat. Unless this water vapor can be removed from the microclimate, it builds up in clothing, footwear, or gloves and creates a clammy and uncomfortable microclimate. 37.5 technology works to enhance the body’s natural cooling mechanism—the body puts out sweat to cool it down, 37.5 technology removes it from the microclimate.

HOW IT WORKS

With 37.5 technology, patented active particles permanently embedded at the fiber level capture and release moisture vapor. Not only do these active particles provide 800% more surface area to the fiber, they also provide a unique driving force to remove moisture vapor unlike any other technology. By actively responding to body heat, the active particles use this energy from the body to accelerate the vapor movement and speed up the conversion of liquid to vapor, significantly increasing drying rates. This means the hotter the user gets, the stronger the driving force removing moisture becomes—and the more comfortable the garment remains.

BENEFITS OF 37.5 TECHNOLOGY

37.5 technology works to keep the optimum relative humidity in your microclimate so your body more efficiently maintains an ideal core temperature, enabling you to perform better, longer. Fabrics made with 37.5 technology dry up to five times faster than similar fabrics, diminishing wet cling. 37.5 technology is made with naturally derived materials so there are no harsh chemicals to irritate your skin. 37.5 active particles are permanently embedded into yarn and will never wash out or degrade.

FIRST LITE FIRST IN MERINO WOOL CAMO Most of us who are old enough to have spent years in the outdoors before the advent of Merino wool underlayers associate ‘wool’ with that stinky, itchy, hand-knit sweater that weighed 20 lbs when wet and smelled like your 10 year old Golden Retriever. With the advent of Merino wool garments all of that has changed. Merino wool fibers are some of the finest found in nature and produce material so soft, durable and naturally odor resistant, they surpass synthetics in every way. Despite the advances of science and the creation of soft fleece and plush cynchilla, nothing beats the feel of Merino wool and unlike synthetics which stink when they’re dirty with sweat, wool doesn’t stink even after you’ve sweated in it for days. Not only does this mean it needs to be washed far less than your other garments, but it means not getting as easily “winded” by game when it matters most. You’ll be happy to know washing your wool is easy (when it needs it) and it can be dried in the dryer as well. Wearing our Merino wool underlayers will feel like you’re wearing your favorite cotton T-shirt.

HOW DOES IT KNOW?

Sheep have evolved over hundreds of thousands of years and are able to live in the freezing high alpine slopes of Siberia as well as the blistering heat of the Australian outback, their wool coats both shelter them from the cold and protect them from the heat. Merino wool underlayers do the same against our skin. They regulate body heat much better than any synthetic fabric can and will keep you comfortable in a wider range of temperatures. When it is warm the wool transports moisture and warm air away from the skin and disperses it into the air, when it is cold the wool traps the warm air and keeps it close to the skin.

NO SMELL

“They can hear you twice, see you once, but if they smell you they’re gone.” Every hunter knows the importance of minimizing human odor and there’s no fabric better at keeping B.O. to a minimum than wool. Wool absorbs 30% of its weight in moisture which then passes through the material and is released into the air instead of remaining on the skin. Transporting the moisture away from the skin and completely through the fabric is the main reason wool is so successful at controlling odor. Nylon absorbs only 4.5% and polyester .4%. With these synthetic fabrics moisture remains on the skin and the fabric leaving a feast for odor creating bacteria on the skins surface.

NO SHINE

Wool absorbs light while synthetics reflect it and create a UV shine. Even wool blends with as little as 10% nylon or other synthetic material such as silver reflect light making you more visible to your prey. 100% wool has no reflection.

NO SOUND

Wool doesn’t flap in the wind, doesn’t shear when you walk or crackle when it’s cold. Wool in motion creates no sound.

MERINO WOOL TECHNOLOGY COMFORT

Merino wool fibers are some of the finest found in nature. It is the tiny diameter of the fibers that allows it to be worn directly next to your skin without any irritation or itch. Merino wool comes from the Merino sheep breed which is only found in specific natural environments. The wool growers in New Zealand and Australia have refined the wool sorting process to produce soft, durable wool for next to skin applications. The composition of wool makes it warm, water-repellent, odor-resistant, flame-retardant, durable, anti-static, and a UV protector. Wool is 90% keratin - a tough, insoluble, fibrous protein also found in hair, finger nails, horns, hooves and the outer layer of skin. A wool fiber can be bent and twisted more than 20,000 times before it will break. This elasticity as well as the microscopic diameter of each strand of wool creates a soft, comfortable, fabric that is perfect for hunters in all types of conditions.

ODOR CONTROL

There are a number of aspects of the physical and chemical structure of Australian Merino that make it naturally more resistant to odors than other textiles, especially synthetics. Moisture Transport - While sweat itself has no odor, if it remains on the skin in time bacteria develop and create unpleasant body odors. Merino reduces the opportunity for odors to generate because it is more efficient than other textiles at absorbing sweat and evaporating it into the air. No Microbial attraction - Studies have shown that bacteria are more attracted to the smooth, positively charged surface of a synthetic fiber than the scaly surface of a Merino fiber which carries no charge. Moisture Absorption - The Merino has a much greater capacity than other fibers to absorb moisture. In fact, it can absorb 35% of its own weight in liquid. The moisture is bound within the structure, and so is not available to microbes, which are unable to penetrate the scaly surface of the fiber. Glass Transition - In water and conditions of high humidity, Merino passes through what is termed a glass transition at which point it dramatically increases its rate of absorption and dispersion. Trapping Odors - The rate of diffusion of small and large molecules into the fiber increases and it is able to absorb odors faster. When the temperature drops, and the fiber once again falls below the glass transition, the odors are trapped within the structure even if the moisture evaporates. Later, during laundering, the garment again passes through the glass transition point and the odors are carried out of the structure by the water. Synthetics are not able to benefit from this same effect because they do not pass through glass transition during normal wear.

THERMAL REGULATION

Each wool fiber is covered with tiny scales like tiles or shingles on a roof that help shed water, rain or spills. But wool is full of contrasts and paradoxes that give it outstanding high performance for cold weather activities. The interior (called the cortex) of wool fiber can hold up to 30% of its weight in moisture without the wool fabric feeling damp or clammy, while the exterior (called the cuticle) is water repelling. Also, when moisture enters the wool fiber, energy is released in the form of heat which helps keep the outdoor enthusiast warm. The high performance characteristics of wool help keep the wearer warm in the winter and cool in the summer by naturally maintaining a comfortable balance in the wearer’s personal micro climate - that is the air between the skin and the layers of clothing. This means that in warm weather fine wool helps keep the wearer cool by transferring heat and body moisture away from the body for a naturally cooling effect.

SHOOTER’S CUT Freedom of movement and total confidence in your gear means that when that shot-ofa-lifetime finally presents itself, you will succeed. That was the inspiration behind the new Shooters Cut fit design and construction. Shoulders and arms are sewn in a way that allows for maximum articulation without any binding to ensure that when drawing your bow, looking thru your scope or down the barrel of your shotgun it is a smooth and uninhibited motion. Look for base and mid layers with the Shooters Cut icon and know that these products are designed for the maximum freedom of movement while still maintaining that performance and comfort you’ve grown to love.

CAMO PATTERNS ASAT

Breaks up the hunter’s outline even at close range. This camouflage becomes even more effective with distance and can make the hunter totally disappear into his natural surroundings. Rather than a particular pattern of leaves, sticks or bark, ASAT uses large irregular curved shapes of overlapping colors which create voids and shadows that effectively make it appear as though nothing is there. ASAT is made up of shades of brown, tan and black. The brown and black colors represent the background and shadows found in all terrains and in all seasons. The tan color reflects the surrounding colors into which it is placed. This allows the hunter to ‘blend’ into his surroundings instead of sticking out from them.

REALTREE MAX-1®

Open Terrain was created to meet the increasing demand for a highly-effective pattern with the versatility to perform in a variety of open settings across the country. From mule deer, whitetail and pronghorn to elk, bighorn, varmints and urkey. Though this pattern has a decidedly Western flair it is versatile enough to perform in any open setting: Sage-covered hillsides. Mesquite flats. Wide open prairies. Deserts. Rocky terrain. Croplands. REALTREE MAX-1® is truly the perfect addition to the highly successful REALTREE ® brand.

REALTREE XTRA®

FIRST LITE LAYERS Our lightweight products are made from 100% ultrafine Merino wool. This is the finest, softest category of Merino wool that can be used for production. These products are designed to go next to your skin and be the ultimate in comfort and odor control. In our tops, this fabric would be equivalent the weight of a cotton T-shirt. But unlike cotton, our wool will wick moisture away from the skin and keep you comfortable even when wet. Next to skin comfort, extra warmth and odor control make our midweight fabrics extremely versatile. Our midweight fabrics are 100% superfine Merino wool constructed in a weight that is perfect for a first layer in moderate conditions or as a second layer for colder situations.

Realtree Xtra uses natural elements like tree trunks, limbs and a variety of leaves, and arranges the elements over large open areas. Layering these elements at different depths within the pattern creates an amazing 3D effect and its this unique process that makes hunters absolutely disappear in nearly any hunting situation they find themselves. Season: Early Spring, Fall, Winter Application: Great for bow or gun hunting in hardwoods, pine or even on the ground floor.

MOSSY OAK BREAK-UP INFINITY®

The industry leader in camouflage design, is proud to introduce its newest pattern, Break-Up Infinity. Featuring unprecedented depth, unequalled detail and elements with remarkable contrast, Break-Up Infinity truly offers hunters another dimension in camo. Each element in Break-Up Infinity – leaves, limbs, acorns and branches – was selected to create unprecedented realism and contrast to break up a hunter’s silhouette. Then they were placed over multiple layers of actual images from the woods to create a multi-dimensional depth of field unlike any camouflage ever created.

SIZE CHART

At over twice the weight of our lightweight fabric, the First Lite heavyweight Merino wool will keep you warm when the temps are low. Wool’s unique warmth to weight ratio means that styles made with this fabric will insulate and ensure comfort at a wide range of cooler temperatures without being bulky, noisy or cumbersome.

SOFTSHELL SHOOTING GLOVE We liked the material we used for the North Branch Pant so much that we decided this would be the perfect fabric to make a cold weather glove. But, we still wanted to be able to use our release for archery or slip the finger onto the trigger of our rifle without anything getting in the way. So, we designed a shooting glove that will keep your hands warm in a snow storm and allow you to take that shot knowing that you don’t have to take your glove off to do it.

MTN ATHLETE CREW SOCK

MTN ATHLETE COLD WEATHER SOCK

Cut to just above your boot, the Mountain Athlete Crew sock is mid weight and made with comfortable Merino wool against your foot but with a durable nylon/spandex outside. The arch lock support and no seamed toe will keep your feet smiling for days at a time.

The ultimate in cold weather comfort for sitting in your stand or duck blind. All of the same features as our Crew but with added material and height to ensure your feet and lower legs are warm on those cold Fall and Winter hunts.

WIND RIVER BALACLAVA

BEANIE

Our Wind River balaclava was designed for those cold fall and winter days when concealment, warmth and comfort are what you need to make your hunt a success. Slip the Wind River over your head and you will feel the comfort and light weight of 18.5 micron Merino wool as you spot and stalk the trophy you have been waiting for.

With the popularity of our Brimmed Beanie, it was only natural to design a technical, ultra-comfortable beanie without the brim that you’ll want to wear all the way back to the bar. Our beanie is a single layer of 100% Merino wool with flat locked seams to ensure comfort and a snug fit. The beanie can be worn to complement our Wind River Balaclava or Neck Gaiter, providing added warmth and concealment.

TECHNOLOGY

+ 100% Superfine Merino wool + Midweight interlock fabric + Hinged design and ear holes for improved sound detection + Machine washable and dryable

BRIMMED BEANIE

NECK GAITOR

The Brimmed Beanie is constructed of two layers of Midweight Superfine merino wool. The Brimmed Beanie is just long enough to cover your ears on those frigid mornings but can be rolled up as the day wears on and the temp goes up. We have sewn a small brim that is large enough to keep the sun out of your eyes or enable you to hide your eyes from game while small enough not interfere with your string on compound or traditional bows.

This could be the most comfortable, versatile and important addition this season. The Neck Gaiter can be worn around your neck for warmth and comfort and then easily pulled up over the back of your head and up over your nose for extreme cold and maximum concealment. The Neck Gaiter is also a great piece of gear for winter fishing, snowmobiling, skiing or snowboarding when the weather gets cold and nasty.
