I bought one of these ages ago and have had so much use out of it it's unbelievable. This black and white colour-way in particular is extremely versatile. I wear it to work as a scarf to keep warm in winter (smart casual woman's wear), wear it with a t-shirt in summer to prevent sunburn and wear it to the beach when windy for obvious reasons. I've used it as a pillow case, curtain, carry bag and bubble wrap. It tucks in a corner of a bag so there's never any reason not to bring it somewhere. Even without an available corner, it can just be tied to your bag strap. Great for travel, camping, fashion, warmth, protection, privacy - you name it and this thing is useful. The material is pretty soft against the face and drapes really nicely. You can see from the picture that it's kind of meshy, but it's somehow robust at the same time. It's quite a big square of material when you unfold the whole thing - mine is usually folded in half as a triangle. If you're hovering over the add to cart button, go for it. You'll be surprised how much use you get out of one of these. There's a reason they're so popular!
