Olive Drab / White Shemagh Desert Scarf

The Olive Drab / White 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.

PERFECT!! Exactly what I wanted
Review by Keepshooting Customer
It’s 23 x 23” the weave and color is great for a sandy colored or dark colored head gear. It was perfect and arrived earlier than the 7 days. This will work well on 62-68 deg weather. Thanks

Review by Keepshooting Customer
I am not ex military so I don't know what the hell these are actually for but they are nice. And if we get the fuk out of Afghanistan, and this Iraq shit settles down we will probably have them lying around in the middle of nowhere waiting for us to go out hunting so they might as well look cool. It also makes my nipples look bigger.

Shemagh (Yellow/Black) - Good but be prepared to do some repair!
Review by Keepshooting Customer
The is decent. For a shemagh at a cheap price it works and is decent, except mine arrived with several thread strings sticking out. This was most likely the sellers/company, the thread was knotted together at the bottom. Also, this 100% cotton one is more loosely woven and thinner than the others I have, the picture seems to be slightly off too. Overall its a buy.

Works for both Summer and Winter wear
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I was able to fold this Shemaugh in half and then wrap it around my neck. Then wrap my scarf over the top and attach my hoodie to it. It works perfect for Winter wear. And I love how this was delivered so fast. 5 Star quality and craftmanship.

Review by Keepshooting Customer
I bought the white one and have been wanting to buy this for a while now! I use it for hiking and camping, I wear it in cooler or colder weather, or just around my neck. I got so many compliments on it when I was camping and I had people asking where I got it from. It looks good too! I bought it as a decoration and to also be able to wear it in the mountains when camping and out in the desert, for shade and sun protection. Also, a small pack that was designed to go on my backpack was designed to hold exactly this size. So it also is a practical item for travel! It is also good for dust and dirt. If you have ever been camping or on a trail ride in the mountains, it is dusty, dirt or just plain dirt everywhere, if you ride or hike in a dry desert you know how the sand can be so bad that you can't see the trail or anything but dust and dirt. This thing would help with that. The sun can be so strong in a dry desert or a place that has little trees or grass or plants. This is an item you can wear in many ways, around your neck, over your shoulders, you could wrap it around your pack or your camping tent, for shade. It's comfortable to wear, you can even tie it around your waist, or just your arm. You could make it look really good by wrapping it around your arms and the sleeves, and it would also keep the dust and dirt out. I think it's perfect for desert and warm weather camping.

Nice color but scratchy
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Got mine a few weeks ago and like the color. It’s a great tactical scarf, as it can be draped or folded to block or filter the air from the elements and/or to be held over your mouth and nose when shooting your firearm, like you see people doing in YouTube videos. But there’s no denying that it’s quite itchy, even after washing. I would suggest wearing a t-shirt or some type of thermal wear underneath, otherwise your chest will be itchy, too. Overall, I’m happy with the purchase, and the color is nice and different from the regular desert-colored ones. The price was great, as well.

Perfectly crafted in India
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Just perfect for Indian weather...I recommend Indian buyers to buy these from India and get quick delivery, they are much more better than Chinese quality in many levels, and we Indians can buy in INR

it gets cold at 4:00 am
Review by Keepshooting Customer
love it... it does everything I hoped for, I wear it on top of my coveralls, while on watch. Great on cold dark mornings... also it wicks moisture, so when you perspire it wicks away, so it will keep your cool... works great. you should own one...just get the right color
