The shemagh is a versatile piece of material that is used to make a simple head wrap covering. Shemaghs have been used in many desert operations to breakup an individuals outline, conceal weapons and protect the wearer's face and neck. In the Middle East, different colours and patterns represent groups and rankings of troops or civilians. A useful piece of cloth for covering up in the hot sun or concealing yourself in paintball and airsoft.

Three stars for the Olive Drab Shemagh. I bought four Shemags from Army and Outdoors. They were all brand new in a sealed plastic bag. I made the assumption that the quality of these (all issued from Germany) would be the same however I was mistaken. Particularly the green Shemagh was - in my opinion - of poor quality. What surprised me was that the woven pannel threads are all "lose" with the ends all showing about 1cm on the backside. The exemplar that I received had these threads cut off quite randomly with some about 4mm long but others about 1cm. As long as you are not worried about the backside of the Shemagh that's ok but if using as a scarf if looks disappointing. So just beware that these Shemaghs do come with a huge difference in quality and this is not visible until you open the plastic bag. I love my Foliage Shemagh - the woven pannels are actually integrated into the fabric with no lose ends at all, a high quality product.
