Rit has now made dye used specifically to color synthetic fabrics like nylon, acrylic, and polyester. In this video I test the “Peacock Green” on a white hydration system from Crystal Creek Outdoor Gear, which is made from nylon (Here is a link to Crystal Creek’s YouTube page:

If you want to dye your nylon gear similarly, you will need:
• Something to dye;
• A large pot in which to boil water;
• A thermometer (preferable, but not necessary);
• A stainless steel implement to stir the water;
• Your choice of Rit dye;
• A 5-gallon bucket;
• gloves (unless you want your hands to turn color).

Once you have found a color you like, take the item and rinse it under cold water until the water runs clear. All you have to do after that is let it dry.

I hope you enjoyed this video and found it helpful. Good luck on your dye endeavors! Blessings!
