Defeats the hell outta the Hi Viz when it's like that, huh?
first thing ya do is when you get it new, treat it with Scotchguard, that way dirt won't stick as deeply

I wash mine in my jacquzzi, fill it up with lukewarm water, that the armor out of my gear, toss it all in , I put an oz of HE launtry detergent in and turn the jets on, let it run for a half hour or until the suds start overflowing on the floor , then take the gear out and hang it in the shower where I rinse off withe hand held showerhead

my Kilmanjaro is 5 years old about 50,000 miles, still fairly clean, been washed twice

my Aerostitch, I never Scotchguarded first and it will never be this clean again
