I think it all fades in time. Try washing it inside out in cold water. Seems to delay the inevitable.

Might try the "Saddle Cloth" mine hasn't faded in over 5 years, now I ain't saying it gets washed very much but it does get wet.

Mr. Longbeard,

As buttonbuckmaster said, turning the clothes inside out helps and all of it will fade in time.

I was at a Walls' factory outlet about 3 years ago looking for a new camo coat because the one I used was faded bad. There was a lady from Walls factory (rep) and she heard me talking to the salesperson about the problem. The sales rep. said the worst thing you could do to camo clothing was to wash them in detergent that had UV brightners. She made the recommendation to use a detergent like Arm and Hammer, which has no UV brightners and that's what I've been using, seems to help.

Ken, may sound a little ridiculous but it doesn't matter what i do my camo still fades over time!So consequently I battle this by having lots of it!I have 6 or seven pant/jacket combinations I rotate throughout the season and as a result have to wash very little.And when I do wash its generally pants specific unless I've got gobbler blood on me!!After deer and turk season I jump on these $off specials on camo specifically with this purpose in mind!

If your looking for something that is extremely fade resistant, try Saddlecloth, Microfiber, or wool.

A definite "must-do" is during the first wash add 2 cups white vinegar...the acid will help set the dyes in the clothes...and vinegar works on all clothing, not just camo. After the initial washing, wash in cold water with Borax, hydrogen peroxide and no-scent body soap/shampoo.
