Rothco's Desert Shemaghs are traditional desert head-wear that are designed to protect the head and neck from sun and sand. Rothco's tactical scarves are worn by military personnel worldwide and also as a fashion accessory. Rothco's shemaghs come in a wide variety of colors from Olive Drab to Pink. Also, be sure to check out our deluxe and patterned Shemaghs. The military scarf also makes for a great survival tool and is an easy add to your bug out bag.
The item that I had ordered is not what appeared at my doorstep. I had ordered the Tan coloring which in the picture has black accents, what came was solid tan in coloring but of fine quality. The shemagh itself is of a thick yet soft fabric (much thicker than the brighter red/white I own) which makes it perfect for the harsh extremes faced in MN. While I absolutely recommend ordering one be cautious on the coloring.
I can't compare to the "REAL" thing from the middle east but the quality of this is Amazing! Had mine now for two weeks and I'm wearing it all the time outside in the Colorado winters. Not sure how i made it through life without one of these before. If i get another, or need another, I'm going with Rothco.
I LOVE this scarf. It is perfect for ALL kinds of living. I wear it hunting- where it's the perfect breath-ability to wrap around my nose/mouth, but long enough to keep my neck warm. I won't go out in cold weather w/o it again! AND... it's versatile. AS in... I love to wear it to the movies because it doubles as a blanket. I always get compliments from my friends on how fashionable it is, too. ALSO, great as a cover up for breast feeding. (back to the whole breath-ability thing....) Not sure how they do it, but it's the perfect blend for hot weather and cold weather. I wash it and dry it, too. It has held up for about four or five years with regular wear and tear. HIGHLY recommend getting one! ESPECIALLY to all my girl friends out there!!!
Great piece of clothing. I use it during all types of weather and situations.
This is probably the best shemagh you can get for the money. I would recommend hand washing only and line dry.
i like it
just a little longer and will be perfect.
Well made. Good Quality.
Could be a little bit longer but still nice.
