Does anyone know how to re-dye army pants a solid colour?

I have some BDU's I'd like to re-dye from a camo green/brown to a solid brown or tan. Searching the net has brought no joy & I'm hoping that someone here has managed to do so. I really like the design/price of them, but don't want to look like an army wannabe poseur. ..Willy

Try Rit I used it on some shirts and they looked great. I would use 1 kit per pair of pants and see if you get the color your looking for.

Likely the easiest way would be to go to a black...
Or if you want to have a lighter colour, then bleach them, and then dye them to the desired colour.

Bleach the ****shit out of 'em and then go rolling around in the mud for a year. Maybe two.
