    The lettering looks like rubber material that's either glued or heat transferred on the jacket. Jacket is polyester.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to how one might go about trying to remove this rubber lettering? Am trying to 'de-brand' the jacket.

    Heat Gun.........visit a Hobby Lobby or a Michael's (maybe a Joann's Fabric/sewing store) -
    If they do not have one that get hot enough hit a Lowe's or Home Depot, Ace. ...etc they sell industrial Heat Guns (looks like a small hair dryer) and it gets REALLY hot - just watch that you don't burn the polyester of the top itself.

    We bought a batch of shirts we donated to a HS school but had to remove all the logos......all the ones that were applied using heat (mainly the rubberized ones)

    Your local crafts store should have those too.

    ????? I do know that I have a handful of Nike Dri Fit stuff where the Heat Applied logo came off after a few rounds in a hot dryer:)

    Heat gun should work fine

    I too hate the RF logo on Nike tennis top end clothing. I may try it out! The RF is just not my thing. Don't know anyone other then Roger Federer that would wear it. Got it as a gift however and been in the closet!
