Orange Shemagh Desert Scarf

The Orange 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.

Rothco - quality Shemagh with interesting history
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Very interesting scarf that has quite a bit of historic meaning behind it. Its also nice and warm and does not hold in heat. Its more like an outer layer that actually allows some warmth to get out but stops the wind from getting in. The fabric is very durable. A couple washes and still looks great.

They're great they're super soft so it's not uncomfortable like the shemaghs I have from earlier, they also have many other colors so you have a good deal of choice when you buy one and it will be perfect and will last long enough. If I had one negative thing to say is that it does smell like moth balls so you will have to let it sit for about a week or so before you can wear it or put it on your face, it's really not a problem though, because they're also cheap enough that if it stinks for a long time it's no big deal.

As expected, no problems
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I bought 2 different shemaghs from Rothco. Both arrived in the time frame specified, the Olive Drab one quickly because it was in stock. I was very happy with the item and the price, especially considering the material used is 100% cotton. It washes up great and doesn't have that scratchy texture on the skin when wearing. Would recommend.

Quality made!
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Good stuff and worth the price. Not thinly constructed, I think it'll hold up. Very color fast, I ran it through a load of dyes. It's made in India and a shade darker than I expected but that's no bad thing. Definitely not light weight or the same fabric that you get on walmart shirts or some chinese products, the weave is much thicker and the fabric much thicker as well. The foliage print is much darker and cool looking, better quality than any I've ever had and was able to hand dye a different color, pink!

Best Shemagh I have had yet!
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Good product and very sturdy fabric! Great value for the money spent. Love it and have it wrapped around me in bed just about every night, I am an Army Vet so that helped. Just hope the color does not bleed! Good customer service, responded quickly to my question of my Shemagh showing signs of color bleeding and offered me a new color to replace it. That I did and love it!

A must for wilderness use or the great North Dakota Winter!!
Review by Keepshooting Customer
The beauty of simplicity!! My wife insisted that I take this item when traveling in Morocco. The shemagh is an invaluable item in the outdoors in North Dakota, for blocking dust, wind, cold, etc. It can also be used for protection against insects, sun, and fire. I take this item everywhere!!

Great quality
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I love this thing! It's very well made and durable. The only downside is that it's not quite big enough to be used as a scarf or neck wrap (I have a large head). However, it works great as a face mask in winter when I go out on my motorcycle.
