Hey, thanks for all your responses and ideas. It's a "big deal" for me because:
- Icebreakaz be 'spensive.
- I want to know how I can be assured this won't happen to ALL my clothing!
- I take "multi-use" into account when buying clothing; performance clothing is expensive and I'd like to use it backpacking, dayhiking, kayaking, bike riding, skeet shooting, nerf herding...
Pamela, your suggestions were great, thanks a ton...I am most concerned about getting excess dye removed from the pad sleeves of the pack than one piece of clothing, so I will definitely give that a try. I'll also follow up with Gossamer Gear customer service and see if they have any suggestions.
