My Field & Stream Max 4 Jacket is way too bright and I want too know how to darken it so it matches my waders and UA hoodie. I am standing out too much in the field.

like said above, mist with spray paint and/ or roll in the mud. heck even splashing some scummy marsh water on it and letting it dry will be fine.

As mentioned...marsh water will darken that sucker in a jiffy!
This is the reason I don't wash any of my hunting gear during the season...hang it to dry and that's it.

As mentioned...mud it. Mud it like a layout blind.
Last night, I dreamed that I killed all the saggers, all the swaggers, and all of their duckface girlfriends...

I would use a paintbrush on it first with the Rit Dye, let it dry and if that's not dark enough, do it again. If still not dark enough, you may want to soak it like the instructions call for.http://www.ritdye.com/colorit_color_formula_guide
