Black / Blue Shemagh Desert Scarf

The Black / Blue Shemagh Desert Scarf is a modern take on the classic desert scarf that has been worn for centuries in the Middle East. When transiting the desert areas of the Middle East, the Shemagh is worn to protect your face from the wind, sand, and sun. After the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, special forces teams recognized the value that the Shemagh brought and it has become a standard issue item.

great buy
Review by Keepshooting Customer
i have had this scarf for about a month and have taken it out on a couple winter excursions to snow-filled fields, woods and sled-mountain hillside with good success. it is comfortable, has decent warmth, and wipes clean fairly easily (or can be packed into its nice pouch for a clean trip back home). there are so many different ways to wrap it around, or tie it off as a neck or head wrap, or as arm cover. if the need ever arises, this is a really nice, lightweight, warm item to keep in the gear pile.

I use it when mowing my lawn in hot dry weather. Light weight, inexpensive and works. You will need to buy more in future as this is made in India and they wear out quickly in laundry

Good fabric weight but 1 was too short and one was the correct length 100% cotton but they are still useable and great price

It is beautiful and comfortable
Review by Keepshooting Customer
It is beautiful and comfortable. Exactly what I was looking for! Would definitely buy again! It is just a little smaller than I expected, which is good because it doesn't look ridiculous when I tie it, which is exactly what I was going for.

Works for me.
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Just as I hoped. A quality garment. The only drawback is that it's a bit heavy. Not sure if I'll use it as a neck cloth or not, since I don't want it slipping off of my neck. Overall I'm happy with the purchase.

Review by Keepshooting Customer
As an Afghan style Scarf, my neck is a tad too short to comfortably pull it on and tuck it over my neck (5' 8"). The fringes are sewn securely on both ends, however, if tying into an all in one, I find that the knot needs to go on the top of the head to stay there. Over my shoulder knot, well it just goes over the shoulder... The black on black scarf (fusion design) was as described and is a good basic style and does it's job. For more use than a scarf, these Shemaghs are useful for head coverings, a bandanna type wicking towel for face and head, an impromptu towel and rag (they come folded into quarters). The most interesting use is a multi purpose tourniquet. Not that it should be used for a war wound, but I have several at the house that I keep handy in case I need one for medical, outdoor related reasons. It works and if that turns into using it for anything, I will have not been disappointed. So, just as an every day Scarf/Towel it does it's job well. For survival or combat related use... you will like it!

Love it. Very well made. Does what its supposed to and I like the design a lot. Only reason I'm taking away one star is the delivery was extremely slow. I did have the product in time to take with me camping. But that was about a month after I ordered it. I was still able to do what I wanted but I was still surprised it took that long to get. I'm sure they sell them fast in stores but it was definitely worth the money for my money. I highly recommend. Just get the right size. The XS I ordered was more of an M which is perfect. But don't get a XS unless you really need one. I just folded mine in half to look like a Shemagh but you can use it for other things too!
