Flecktarn general?? I'm having some problems with dyeing, after 6 or 7 bottles of rit dye, the camo is still very visible which is fine but it makes the jacket look very brown? What am i doing wrong /fa/? Can provide pics if needed

sorry OP, I can't help much. I just put mine with some dye and salt into the washing machine and received a pitch black parka.

>> No.12198489

Damn dude that looks good. I havent been using salt, is that the problem. Also did you use rit or dylon?

>> No.12198503

I used a (German) product called simplycol. It came with a little plastic bottle filled with dye AND a pack of fixating salt, which were both to be placed inside the washing machine.

>> No.12198938

does anybody know how the dude in that pic got his velcro patches/ zipper to be brown? I dyed my parka to about the same color, but those parts didn't absorb any dye and stayed the same color.

>> No.12200340

One package of dye and a half hour in the washing machine, then one more to get the remaining dye out of the cotton so it doesn't run onto other clothes 'n' shit. then in the dryer and..tah-dah.

>> No.12200376

It would be great if you faggots were even a little creative, dying the parka a colour other than black or maybe using a different jacket.

>Wtf is up with ppl dyeing flecktarn black??

If you're gonna do that wtf is the point in buying a flecktarn jacket to begin with??

All you end up doing is ruining the remaining stock of flecktarn for the rest.
Why not just buy a plain OD jacket and dye that? Or get a plain black milsurp jacket?

>> No.12203125

I also fell for the meme. It turned out lighter/less black than I expected. Used 2 packs of Simplicol dye on a 65% cotton/35% polyester parka.

Theres at least tens of thousands of these just sat in storage. Quit acting like they're some precious commodity.

is the only real difference between a new and use one the price, with the intention of dying in mind?
New to this kind of stuff.

price and degree of wear. But even a fairly worn one, like >>12198485 (it's a 1997 model) holds up just fine.

thanks man. I like the worn look so I'll go with a used one then.

Do you need to remove the drawstrings before dying ? Will they turn black otherwise?

>> No.12210777

they don't turn black cause they're not made of cotton.
