Tan Shemagh Desert Scarf

The Tan 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.

Awesome Shemagh
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Just awesome! Shemaghs are very useful in the field. I use it when out camping and it's nice having a warm head wrap.

Perfect for work, school, and travel.
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I love the scarf and I can use it for multiple purposes. When it's a hot summer day I use it to keep cool and protect my head from the sun, and during winter I can use it to stay warm and toasty. It is a great piece of clothing and I am very happy with my purchase. 5 stars for me.

Review by Keepshooting Customer
I have had my tan one for over a year and it is still in perfect shape. Only a few holes have developed from camping in them and I have a white and a multicam that are new and have not been abused at all. The only downside to the one I bought from rothco was that I bought two different ones. I ordered a blue and white one as well. The one that came in was not the one that I had seen online, nor was it a real military spec, just an imposter of the real shemaghs that our troops wear. I contacted the company about it and sent it back for a refund, so I would suggest if you want to buy one from them, don't order one from another vendor, just order it from them. It is not listed on the description as military, but that is because I bought a used one. When I contacted rothco, the people that work there seem very friendly and helpful.

Excellent Shemagh!
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Very nice Shemagh. Great for many applications. It is very soft, comfortable and great color. Would highly recommend. The foliage color will blend very well with natural environment and with all colors of camouflage. Good buy!

Rothco, Olive Drab/Black Shemagh, by Trussacu - Sizes: Olive Drab and Coyote Brown (Multicam)
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I got a 2 1/2 X for airsoft, and a small, for the gun I can put in my coat pocket. Good quality, cotton scarf, a little lighter weight than I expected, not quite winter wear but great to be used with a hooded sweatshirt. Wash before use, I didn't and have seen a darkening of color. I recommend you get some nice camo stickers, like, tiger stripe, to attach to the front of your Shemagh, for identification purposes. And by the way I love wearing my Olive/Black shemagh, it is great on the neck and I like it more than a hat or watch cap.

Better to hand-wash than machine
Review by Keepshooting Customer
It's very nice, and a perfect size, but the knotting and fraying are kind of rough on the hand that wraps around the head. If I wanted to use this regularly, I'd better hand-wash it.

Great shemagh scarf!
Review by Keepshooting Customer
This scarf arrived very quickly and is made of good quality material. I love it and have worn it for hiking, hunting, camping and to conceal my face while walking around my neighborhood. My girlfriend even borrowed it and liked it so much she bought one. It has also been my choice to layer in the cold for a wind break or around my neck to keep me cool in hot weather and I like that I can tie the end into an effective makeshift gag when I get into sticky predicaments. Great quality for the price. Would recommend.

It is a good quality scarf.
Review by Keepshooting Customer
It arrived a day earlier than estimated. It was just as I expected. A few loose threads but that is nothing.
