Very nice, but cheaper to import nitro from NZ!
Oh dear... Glad it's not in Lime
I'll be testing one in early December all being well
Yes! Now a member, just picked up a brand new Nitro for £43 on ebay! Is a womens but think it should fit well, now just need to hope i can dye alpha...
At least the women's doesn't have the awful clammy pocket on the chest.
It's polyester, so you may have to live with the colour, unless you can find a specialist dye.
@Mole Would this work? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/253155179761
There's dye that claims to do polyester, opinion on line says both yes and no... Fingers crossed!
What colour would you go for?
On that top?
Dark green. Or blue green. Or black/dark grey.
( Unless you like some form of brown?)
Maybe! It's quite a light colour.
I've not tried that sort of dye. They are relatively new ( last few years?) I think.
The real colour is a bit 'brighter'-the colour looks a bit subdued in that pic.
The iDye has been around a good few years now Mole. I've used them with some success on pertex and paramo garments. If not using high heat, the results can be less effective. I once par boiled a Rab Pile jacket with Berber fleece.
On poly cotton, I had to use a colour stripper after a failed 1st attempt.
Thanks. That's keen, dyeing a Berber fleece!
Wish I'd not sold it @Mole
It was in my pre ultralight days and I dyed it from orange to Brown!
Too warm for all but a few weeks of the year. Built tough with Reinforced sections. If buffalo smocks last decades...that would last centuries
