Thank you for your feedback.
I use it balaclava style in winter and it's very effective for keeping the wind at bay and my bald head warm.
A lot of airsoft players are using these too for face and neck protection, and this version will do the job nicely.
I sort of bought this on a whim and I was pleasantly suprised!!

    I purchased a Rothco shemagh about 3 years ago and it has just finally worn out. I wore it 5 days a week for 2 and a half years while burying underground cable. Summers are brutally humid and winter can go from 27 degrees in the morning to 67 in the afternoon. Since this garment is cotton and lightly quilted in spots, it's extremely absorbent. It keeps me cooler than any summer hat I have and provides more shade area. This thing would absorb all the sweat I could produce and then air-dry within 10 minutes while hanging over a branch.

    I shave my head so I MUST keep the summer sun off my "dome". I own a ton a different hats for all seasons but this is the most comfortable headgear I own. I grant you I wouldn't wear this out to the mall but it's perfect for almost any kind of outdoor activity. I use it balaclava style in winter and it's very effective for keeping the wind at bay and my bald head warm. I would go from balaclava in the morning to neck scarf to sweat towel and back with this single garment. If I'm outside this scarf is around my neck.

    I used it once to make a "sweaty" sling for a buddy's dislocated shoulder while in the field. It kept that arm nice, tight, and immobilized. This is a man's answer to a bandanna.

    In the time I had this scarf it was washed and dried at least 5 times a week in warmer months and at least twice a week in colder months. Even with the addition of fabric softener sheets it still held up for 2+ years. If you work outside or are into outdoor activities, this is a great piece equipment.
    Thanks for the time.

    This is a great head scarf. I ordered black/white, and intend to also order the tan/black. The description says it measures 42' by 42' but, after washing and drying (without any fading or bleeding), mine measures 45' by 45'. It can be tied about the head as a regular head scarf, about the neck for warmth, or about the face to protect from blowing sand, blazing sun, pollen, etc. For instructions on how to tie, there are several good videos on YouTube.

    I bought a couple of these shemaghs from Rothco, and a couple from another manufacturer. I'm much happier with the Rothco product!

    I live in Arizona, and spend quite a bit of time in the desert. These products do exactly what they're supposed to do. They keep the sun and heat off of you, and the sweat on you, in the the summer. In the winter, they're thick enough to be warm, and make great scarves or head covers.

    The material is a nice thickness, and soft. These Rothco shemaghs are 100% cotton, whereas some others are poly/cotton blends. I definitely prefer the cotton over the cotton blend. One other minor, but important note. The poly/cotton blend ones have a very loose weave that snags very easily. The weave of these Rothco shemaghs is not nearly as prone to snagging.

    I also really like the colors Rothco offers.

    A couple of the other reviews have mentioned the size of these shemaghs, saying they're too small (42x42 as opposed to 44x44). I have had no problems with the size of these, and have been able to easily tie them in the traditional manner, covering both my head and face. And I have a BIG head.

    All in all, a great product! I now have them in almost all colors offered!

    Shemaghs are great travel accessories. I've used mine to keep sand and sun off of me in Egypt and Jordan, used it as an impromptu blanket in a freezing cold hostel in Singapore. Sure, the "fashionably trendy" scarves might look cool but if you need to keep warm and cool, this is what to get. The quality is first-rate and feels solidly constructed. It hasn't bled or frayed with a few washings. A must for travelers.

    Size: One SizeColor: Tan Verified Purchase
    I was surprised at how thin the shemagh was when it arrived, but after perfecting how to put it on I was surprised at how warm it became.
    I brought it along backpacking at Glacier National Park in early May where I really learned just how useful it was. Glacier in May is still very cold, it dipped below zero every night and snowed a few times while we were up there. When the sun disappears behind the mountains the temperature drops.
    I most often wore it around my neck while still tied in the configuration that I could pull it over as a hood and around my mouth as a mask. When tied like that it provides excellent insulation (hot or cold) and just feels really good. The cotton almost feels like fleece. I often wear it like that for a majority of the day at my cabin.
    When you have the mask around your face it blocks wind as well as any single-purpose mask you could ever buy. However, I wear glasses and often those single-purpose thinsulate or any other material masks always, always cause my breath to fog my glasses. I've never had my glasses fog up wearing my Shemagh.
    The hood keeps you as warm as a light wool cap, but with the benefit of covering most of your exposed skin instead of just the top of your head. I wear it at night because cold air still gets into your sleeping bag through the hole where your head is. I've found nothing better to stave off that cold than the Shemagh.
    Even in the heat, after several hours of backpacking I threw it over my back where my shirts were soaked in sweat and becoming too cool in the sun. It stopped the sun from evaporating too much sweat too quickly and kept the temperature much more even.
    When you're not using it, it's light and thin enough to pack anywhere comfortably.
