I did a search, and the few pics I found were UCP dyed green colors. I'm looking for a tan/brown/desert looking colors.

This is my chest rig dyed with Rit Tan. Looks pretty good by itself but upon further inspection it too has the redish tint that seems fairly common with the brown family of rit dyes but here in Alabama that woks pretty well with our red clay.

I see what you see about the redish tint. I wonder if I mix the tan and taupe if it would make it lighter in color? I may have to chop up a UCP pouch or hat and try it.

I tried to dye ACU with tan and I got a reddish tint. I then tried dark green and I got better results. I'll get some pics if you want to see..

Thanks. Through trial and error, I found that the longer it is in the dye, the redder it gets. On this rig, I dipped it in and out of the bucket until I was close to the color I wanted without getting too red.

I agree, that looks way better than most dyed ACU that I've seen. Good work!

Please do.

The pouch on the right was dyed with tan which turned it reddish, I then dyed it again with dark green which I think gave me the best results.
The pouch on the left was dyed with dark green only. I don't think mixing both tan and dark green would net the same effect as doing the process separately.

Has anyone tried using an acid dye?

Crap! That looks good. I might have to dip mine in some dark green now.
