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.
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!
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.Read more ›

Great material, great product! I thought it was gonna be some kind of Asian knock off, but material is nice and soft, and colors are legite.Published 9 days ago by Edmund Dobry
Better than I thought it would be. Have seen some Shemagh's at other places, and wouldn't buy them. The material this is made out of is softer than others and pretty decent.Published 17 days ago by Old Dog
