Rit Dyeing, Using Apple Green ETA: PIX UP. - AR15.COM
My ACU uniform dyed with Rit Apple Green looks very much like your olive drab uniform linked above. I know what you mean about used ACU uniforms.

Anyone into ACU UCP pattern dyeing/fixing? | EDCForums
The ACU uniforms I showed above are made in Mil-spec 50:50 NyCo ripstop cloth. 99% of military uniforms made these days in this material are printed in some type of camouflage.

Dye cheap ACU with RIT DYE = ranger green | Survivalist Forum
ACU/UCP is a horrible pattern and I'm glad you took initiative to change it & make it work for you. I've dyed several fabric items in the past and found that it usually has a harder time dying synthetic fabrics like nylon or pvc -- the dye usually takes much easier to cotton or cotton-blend fabrics like the ACUs themselves.

Rit Dye, ACUs, GI Nylon Gear, and NV/IR - AR15.COM
The reason for asking about this is that a LOT of ACU uniforms and gear will hit the surplus market in the future, as the Mil transitions to other color/pattern uniforms and gear.

Repurposing Gear: The Power of Dye - American Partisan
We'd been issued the OCP uniform for that trip but all our gear was old LBE woodland stuff. I'd found a mud encrusted coyote brown Tactical Tailor battle belt at a surplus store for $5 that cleaned up well, and figured a dye job would better integrate the ACU stuff I wanted to put on it.

Tru Spec makes ACU cut uniforms in other colors than the Army digital, just get some in OD grean or MARPAT digital as suggested. Dying them doesn't work I've tried it, just f's them up and makes them unusable.
Rit Dye Picture Heavy | Prepper Forum / Survivalist Forum
2,595 Posts. Discussion Starter · #1 · Oct 19, 2017. A good way to get subdued clothing and tactical gear like pouches and vests is to use Rit Dye.
