I fell for the meme and ordered a German flecktarn parka. I know there was a big thread on this a while back, but i have some questions about dyeing.

What kind, and how much dye should i use to get it to look like pic related?

It's supposed to be that way. The german army hands out another padded jacket with the parka, that goes under the parka. The parka itself isn't that warm and isn't padded, so this jacket has to fit under it. Maybe even a bulletproof vest in addition to that. So your parka is probably exactly your size.

I'm honestly toying with the idea of getting a flecktarn parka to try out dyeing.

I've seen people suggest taking off the German arm flags prior to dyeing, Which I was thinking of doing but then replacing them with patches because I'm not too keen on being associated with Germany any more.

Tell me if pic related or the imperial German flags maybe would be a good Idea to patch on or not?
