The topics probably bindun, but here goes: Brother in law organises expeditions for kids from his school (serious trips i.e Kilimanjaro not New Forest). He came across my rather elderly bergan and thought it was a good bit of kit for the money that they can be picked up for surplus. The problem is, a lot of the place he goes, they are specifically told not to use/ display anything that looks military as nasty men with guns may take an interest. Can anyone recommend a product that will not flake off exposing the DPM pattern underneath? Or react nastily with the material? If we can de-mil a few of these it'll save a few quid from the fundraising effort. (They won't be doing any serious load hauling, more backpacker type thing where the bergans are dumped at base camp if they are off anywhere) Thanks all.
