    Color: 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.

    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.

    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: Olive Drab Verified Purchase
    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: Olive Drab Verified Purchase
    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.

    Color: 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: Dark Green & Black Verified Purchase
    I bought this thinking it would just be a normal shemagh. Everything is great, save for the crappy AR-15s stitched to it. One thing I use these for is concealment, and having a definite shape like that? No. Now if you're into air soft, then feel free, for anyone serving, you decide.
