Why don’t dope dye jackets have orange panels?
This is because of the bulk fabric purchase issue discussed above. As Arc’teryx cannot get this fabric in the iconic orange colour economically at this point they would have to use a non-dope dye fabric instead. However, due to the resilience of the dope dye fabric to colour-fading the choice was made to not combine them with non-dope dye fabrics for the first generation of products as they may fade at different rates. Of course Arc’teryx will continue to undertake field testing and seek feedback from professional users like us and could potentially choose to introduce a high visibility hood on the dope dyed products in the future.
