    Question Any Tips for "fading" nylon straps

    Anyone tried fading nylon straps.

    Like OD or any darker color other than sitting in the sun for weeks?

    You can soak them in warm water with a little bit of bleach. I am sorry but I don't have a good ratio worked out. Start with a tiny bit until your desired look is achieved.
