4.0 out of 5 stars Happier Now., August 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
"So my first shemgah was given to me by a friend whose cousin was stationed overseas. I love that shemgah. It's a little bit of a loose weave, but it's heavy and of great material. These keffiyehs, in my opinion, seem like really poor material. They feel and look cheap to me, and the thread looked to be coated in some sort of wax. I received one keffiyeh that had some big holes in the middle of them, and another one just looked atrocious. Looked like someone just slopped it together not caring about quality or aesthetics. I am not happy with these orders, should have bought one then decided. Oh well, lesson learned. I did read in one review that the foliage green doesn't match, if it doesn't, then that will be the final line for me, I will return them all, and order new ones from a different company. Also my keffiyeh is larger and feels nicer. These keffiyehs are looking more and more like P.O.S.'s".

Okay that was my first opinion. After I got my second batch of 4 shemgahs I am way more pleased. These ones seem of better quality and look and feel nice. Weave seems more "full", it's tighter, and the cotton isn't coated in some strange wax. I am now a pleased customer. I am tempted to purchase another batch with black and silver, sand, and olive drap. Maybe another chocolate and black one, too. Who knows? Some reason certrain colors were bundled together, because I bought 8 total, returned 2, and they came in fours. Makes me wonder if certain colors come from different places and have different materials and qualities or if I just got a nasty bunch just out of sheer misfortune. Who knows? Also that customer review who said the colors don't line up, they are just being really nit picky. The lighting in the photo darkens the appearance slightly, but if you sit down and compare, it matches. They are being stingy. I didn't give them a 5 stars because these aren't my favorite style shemgahs, and due to the bad experience prior, but I still love these new ones and might purchase more for future outfitting of friends for paintball matches.

FWIW, it's a SHA-MOG...not a SHEM-GUH.
