Desert Shemaghs are traditional desert headwear that are designed to protect the head and neck from sun and sand. Tactical scarves are worn by military personnel worldwide and also as a fashion accessory. This shemagh design was inspired by the American Flag.
Despite being primarily known as essential combat gear for desert ops, the OG Shemagh is a multi-purpose lightweight cover that can be worn in a variety of climates, and is perfect for both military personnel and civilians. Originally designed to protect its wearers from sun exposure and stinging sand, this shemagh’s lightweight and durable cotton construction also provides cover from wind, snow and dust. Its large size can accommodate any wearer, and allows for varying levels of ventilation based on the method used to secure it. Wear as a heavy-duty scarf in the winter or as head and neck protection during outdoor sports or tough jobs. It’s rugged enough to withstand tough conditions, but soft enough for comfortable all-day wear.
