Perhaps 10% of the gray portions of the pattern have a weird washed-out look...almost looks like the dye didn't set. Anyway, it's camoflauge, and not particularly noticeable. It's only slightly lighter than 1.9oz nylon, but it feels and behaves way differently, with way more static electricity to contend with. I'd say the "wrong" side of the material is about 80% as dark / saturated as the top side, which doesn't seem to bad. Note that this material does not have the periodic heavier thread that you'll see in typical ripstop nylon. Then again, it's polyester..better UV resistance, and less long-term stretching.
