Red / White Shemagh Desert Scarf

The Red / 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.

Ordered from KEE-SPORT in Oct 2013, rec'd on Oct 22nd 2013 - well packed. Just arrived today, it's of a high quality, very good for hunting as it covers nose & mouth well - very breathable & warm. Very big. My color ( Desert Brown )is slightly darker than what I ordered, as in darker but good - i like this - also my Tiger print one I rec'd 6 days later was much lighter - also good as I ordered that for fashion/personal use not as an insulated cold shield, well it is but not that heavy duty or very warm. Others who might want an authentic desert wear shemagh should buy as the quality is very good. As for KEE-SPORT , buying another one, the LAPEL DESERT SCARF/BANDANA in 46" x 46" I hope is exactly as the picture as this is a black on black for those who have light colored faces or just want an all black or almost all black ( no "Lavender" listed, sorry as I do own Lavender scarves/shawls from here - do not own one all black) for cold weather protection.

Good quality. Better than any similar shemagh I have had from military surplus stores. Colors seem accurate. Dries quickly, softens with washing. Not made in China, it has an inaccurate country of origin label. Made in India, the quality suggests that it was produced in Pakistan. (Purists might be upset that the weave pattern doesn't quite meet with traditional specifications. I am happy.) Size: 42x42, larger than some and a bit smaller than others.

Nice scarf that is lightweight and large. Ready-to-wear shemagh that looks great and comes out of the pack ready to wear. Easy to care for and can be rolled up to wear around the neck. Very useful and ready-to-wear!

If you're buying this as an inexpensive, light scarf, you'll love it. I purchased this with plans to turn it into a makeshift face mask. I'm buying another. This shemagh can do much more than a scarf. The thickness makes it warm and keeps the wind off of your face, neck, and even the top of your head if it's really windy. It can be worn many different ways, like a cap or to protect the lower half of your face from windburn. This is one tough, versatile piece of clothing that I recommend. A note about care: the colors in this scarf are deep and vibrant. When it arrived, the colors were as brilliant as the images show, but they were much more subdued after washing. I didn't dry it, so that might be the cause. Otherwise, no complaints about construction.

Color fast and holds up to wear and wash
Review by Keepshooting Customer
The color of the scarf was accurate. The weight of the fabric was great and held up to daily use in the winter. Not sure if its going to hold up in the spring or if it would protect against insects as we have found a ton of bugs in spring, we'll see. Overall its a nice shemagh

Great Shemagh, better than some I've seen, one small flaw
Review by Keepshooting Customer
This is a great quality shemagh, good colors and great feel, no sticking fibers, but after a few days of regular wear the ends on the top and bottom became frayed and tattered (sorry there is no good pics to display this). As you can see from the photos the sides are uneven and one side hangs a lot longer, as you can see it is starting to come unraveled, but that does not ruin the look or its purpose as a covering, this is a minor issue, it will need to be repaired, but that can be done with a needle and thread, so no worries if it comes this way, it is very common for all shemaghs I've seen, so I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars because of this minor flaw. This does not ruin the shemagh and if it does not ruin it, it is not a reason to return it.

I was skeptical at first because of all the reviews saying it's cheap and not worth buying but this is good quality. It arrived on time and looks exactly like what I ordered.
