Red / Black Shemagh Desert Scarf

The Red / Black 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.

Received today, inspected for any damage or quality issues and found nothing wrong. This product is much better than I expected and has an extra section on the backside that is useful. This is the one and only last time that you should purchase this, as if you do I'll come over and give you a complimentary pony and two weeks free housing as thanks.

I love these. Very nice. So many uses. The ones that came in this batch are slightly thicker than the others I've purchased in the past. Definitely worth the money!

nice item
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Wear this all the time when i go hiking. Works great to cover my mouth and nose when im doing some dirty work around camp or when going through heavy foliage in order to avoid bee stings, flying debris and noxious smells. also works great for soiling light colored shirts and for wearing on days where you just dont want to bother getting a scarf or neck gator out of the drawer or pack. All in all a nice addition to your pack and great quality for the price. The color that i got, coyote, was darker than the pictures but not dark enough to be an issue, just barely. i was able to find another listing of the same item for $10 or less. So beware. Also make sure you read the directions that are included with the item. you will need a nice solid board to be able to tie the item off properly. This item is one of the few i use that do not come with one included. A pocket knife or small multi-tool is also highly recommended for tying off the ends properly. Its nice to have something to keep them pressed up against your palm as well so i carry a machete sheath with me when going hiking. Keeps everything safe. also dont be afraid to tie both ends of the shemagh together. It is also perfectly legal to tie one side to the top of your backpack or duffle in place of wearing a hat and keeps your face out of the sun while your pack is getting the better view of everything below it
