Aerostitch changed the recall web page. It now includes color blocks, On my monitor the colors are very similar but the swatches that I received in the mail are night-and-day different.

My current thinking is that a faded jacket in the recalled color cannot be as ugly as a color-fast jacket in dull mustard.

Yea, mine collects bug spots too, but I get into enough rain to give a very thorough rinse occasionally. I only get rain inside when I fail to fold the throat correctly.

Has anyone used "UV-Tech" on, for example, a fade-prone red 'stitch? Aerostitch sells it and it's supposed to "reduce color fading". It doesn't sound like a complete solution but I'm looking at my options.
