2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware: different quality from different countries, November 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Camcon Shemagh Scarf (Apparel)
I purchased this based on the high quality reviews here, and I assumed I was buying a high quality shemagh from Pakistan. What I got instead was a Rothco 8537 shemagh made in India. Without opening the package, I can tell that the stitching is loose, I already see runs, and it will not last long.

I am contacting the seller to see if they have any good shemaghs in stock.

So realize that the good reviews on here may not apply to the product that you receive.

I purchased the 8537 and received a 4537( its described as "lightweight"), there is a sticker on the package that says 8537, but the original package says 4537 but it is made in Pakistan. I don't know about the quality of the 8537 as I have never seen one, but the 4537 can be purchased for 33% less than the 8537. Also the 4537 I received is very thin, like a cheap t-Shirt thin. I am going to contact the seller to see what they are willing to do.

Thanks for the heads up. I contacted the military supply store with my concern about this,and they responded right away and assured me that I was getting the thicker shemagh,or in fact had ordered that specific one. It seems that their are different listings for the same thing, so it's possible that maybe you ordered the thinner one without realizing it, which of course would not be your fault but the way there are multiple postings for the same type of product from the same distributor.

Honestly at the price point I've stopped caring whether it is from Pakistan or India. I ordered another one this winter (blue this time), and it has held up decently well. I'll probably wear it out and just order a new one next year :)

Well, unfortunately, Amazon's site is huge and I've seen a whole lot of cross-references to various products going on over the last year. It's is VERY believable to me that one could order a product from one listing and receive another product from a different, similar listing.

Most of us have seen product reviews under the wrong products. It happens ALL THE TIME on Amazon. You'd be wise to be move slowly before calling people asses. Amazon does have some confusing and, at times, misleading listings.
