The Grey 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.

Make sure to wash it before use

Review by Dushon Z.
Verified Buyer

Remember to hand wash this before use. A *lot* of dye came out in the wash water when I washed it. In fact, I needed to wash and rinse 3x before the water came out clear.

Frays at the corners whenever you tie it.

Review by Mcihael O.

The fabric is pretty thin and therefore breathable, but that makes it prone to tearing. The fraying looks pretty cool though.

Makes Wearing A Mask Not As Bad.

Review by Daya E.

One of the biggest hassles with Covid-19 is wearing a mask. Most of them make it difficult to breathe; they are uncomfortable, itchy, sweaty, etc., etc. Fortunately, early on, I found a viable solution with a Shemagh The shemagh (pronounced “schmog”) – also called a keffiyeh and ghutrah – originated in the Middle East. They are a scarf-type wrap commonly found in arid regions to protect from direct sun exposure, as well to protect the mouth and eyes from blown dust, sand, AND COVID-19!!!!! If you have to wear a mask and want something a little more comfy and stylish, give the shemagh a try.

As expected.

It smells.

Review by Keyla E.
Verified Buyer

I picked this up to use as a COVID mask and it is too smelly to use as that purpose. I’ve washed it several times and it is slowly getting better. Mine is a Rothco item and has the tags expected.

Good Quality

Review by Remy E.
Verified Buyer

I use it as a face covering here in Hawaii where it’s mandatory in most businesses. I wear it mostly at night and it’s breathable enough not to cause me to overheat. It’s a little larger than I expected which is a good thing since I fold it a few times when using it. No strong scent (thankfully). I like it enough that I’m ordering it in olive.

I’m happy

This was for my brother as long he liked it I’m happy that he did.

Makes a good makeshift mask

Review by Denice C.
Verified Buyer

This has proven to be far superior to a bandana mask for COVID-19 face protection. I can get a quick, tight and secure 4 layers of cloth on my face without the use of rubber bands or tying. I can't speak to the durability since I've only gotten it recently, but it seems fairly well made. I can also see this having other uses later on down the road. I'm overall very pleased.

Versatile and good looking

Review by Kayvan Y.

Just what I was looking for. Protection from wind and sun and will use when I forget my 2020 face mask.
