Fades to a tan color with a brown warp. The image below gives an indication of the color this cloth turns after fading. The top portion of the image was kept from sun exposure while the bottom half was exposed to direct sunlight for 9 days. The top portion of the image has lost some of its original color due to heat exposure. We expect that this type of fading would be roughly equivalent to about 3 weeks of a soldier's life.
