    Color Name: Sand & Tan Verified Purchase
    I had previously ordered and received a Rothco shemagh. I am pleased with it, but found the blue color to be a bit too much when I wore it at construction sites (double-takes and stares from coworkers). I realized I wanted something more subtle in color, so I ordered the Army Universe sand & tan military shemagh. The day after it arrived (one day sooner than promised), winds in New Mexico were blowing at 40 to 60 mph and the sand was actually painful on my face. I folded the Army Universe cloth to make a face mask (hard hats are required head wear, so I didn't make the classic middle east head and face wrap). It worked very well and the color did not attract undue attention. It actually matches the color of the local sand quite well.

    Regarding the qualities of the Rothco vs. Army Universe shemaghs: The Rothco is made in India, the Army Universe in Pakistan. The Rothco is of a slightly looser weave and the tied knots farther apart. The Army Universe seems just a bit more tightly woven and the knots around the edge closer together and more tightly tied. (I am not an expert by any stretch of the imagination regarding these things, this is just my personal observation.) I keep the Army Universe sand & tan shemagh in my daily use backpack, the Rothco in my emergency/overnight bag, but this is based strictly on color, as I mentioned. Either one is entirely satisfactory for its intended multiple purposes. Both are recommended.

    This item showed up on time and I was excited to finally receive it but when I opened it up the smell hit you and then there was holes from what looked like moths in the fabric

    Color Name: White & Black
    Just got off of work, got my package from the mailbox, opened, turned on computer, typing now...

    Didn't even take off my shoes from working all day. I ordered two of these. One in foliage, the other in Olive drab. My olive has multiple holes all over. The foliage is in perfect condition.

    Being happy with 50% of my purchase I still give this one star. I am not able to replace it through amazon. I can only ship it back and get a refund. I don't feel up to it so I will take it as a loss. The packaging was not damaged at all so the product was shipped out defective from the start. I think I will just purchase from physical locations now.

    Color Name: Black & Olive Drab Verified Purchase
    I rinsed this scarf out a few times right out of the package and all the green dye ran out, it is now black and brown. There are also 4-5 1/2 inch holes in the fabric where the weave is super loose and you can see clear through it. To be clear this wasnt being washed because I had worn it and got it dirty, I removed it from the package and put it in cold water. Overall this is very poor quality in spite of some of the glowing reviews. Perhaps this is being imported from a different distributor than the items that reviewed well. I will not order again.

    Color Name: Dark Green & Black Verified Purchase
    The overall quality of the shemagh was not bad at all, but it did not look at all like pictured. I was expecting a nice green and black design like the image shown but instead, when unfolded, there's little AK 47's all over it. So much for a good quality design. I was extremely disappointed.

    Color Name: Black & Silver Verified Purchase
    I bought the 8537 SHEMAGH TACTICAL SCARF and I loved it, it was a great size and thickness and felt really well made, however I really like the color of this one and the 8537 did not have it so I bought this one figuring it would be the same thing.

    When I took it out of the package it had a very bizarre smell to it that I had to wash it to get the smell out, which Isn't a big deal, but the smell was still slightly there after I washed it, the 8537 did not have any sort of smell to it out of the package. The other downside to this particular one is that it is a bit smaller than the 8537, which doesn't seem like a big deal, but a lot of the different methods of head wrapping require a good amount of material to work with that the 8537 provides and this one is just too small for certain head wrapping methods. This one gets the job done but it is definitely a step below the quality and size of the 8537, I would highly recommend going with the 8537 if you're in the market for one of these.

    I recieved this shemagh today still wrapped in its original packaging. However it was threadbare and worn through in spots along the whole center fold. Undoubtably this is shelf ware. This was shipped through Amazon from Army Universe.
