Think of these British Sweat Rags as being more than just a sweat rag. Like most military surplus equipment, you are only limited by your imagination when it comes to repurposing.

Our warehouse staff is pretty creative, and they've come up with a few ideas for how these can be used:

  • Light weight neck scarf - The length and weight of the sweat rag makes them ideal for a light neck scarf to help keep you warm.
  • Bandana Mask -  These sweat rags are perfect to tie up as a quick mask.
  • Cloth Tie Down - When you need to tie down an item, these actually work quite well.


  • 15" x 40" Dimensions
  • Marked with British Army Designation "RAG SWEAT DESERT SAND"
  • Includes 5 Sweat Rags - less than $0.80/each

Use it for sweat, use it for anything. Put in under your hat for a makeshift net protector from the blazing desert sun. Cover the face during a sandstorm. Makeshift scarf or anything else.

My 5 pack came with 3 new/wrapped rags and 2 used ones. Condition new and excellent. Now I can stuff a couple in one of my British tactical vest pouches!

These are great 'drive on' rags. They are about the thickness of a handkerchief, but longer and wider. So they can work as a light scarf; a head-wrap; a sling for a wounded arm/shoulder; the list is endless. Great product, and the best price I've found on the internet.
Great deal

5 for $4, can't beat that. These have multiple uses and will come in handy more often that you'd think. All came sealed too!
Excellent item

These rags are great. Good size and good quality. One of the five was still sealed in its plastic wrapper.
