Shemagh - OD Green/Black

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.

Shemagh Uses

  • Dust Protection. Cover your face on motorcycles, trucks, and chicken buses.
  • Sun Protection. Great for when you’re stranded in mid-day heat without shade. Especially if you’re bald (like me).
  • Towel. Small, lightweight, fast drying, but thick enough get the job done.
  • Ground Cloth. Keep your butt clean & dry when sitting on the ground.
  • Warmth. Wrap it around your neck as a scarf to keep warm.
  • Bag. Put stuff in middle, tie corners together. Instant hobo sack.
  • Sarong. Wrap around your waist for modesty. Shorter than a normal one.

  • Arm Sling. Sprain a wrist or break an arm? Temporary immobilization.
  • Emergency Bandage. Help stop bleeding & protect the wound.

  • Concealment. Often used to hide my camera in questionable neighborhoods.
  • Rope. Long enough to be rolled up to tie things together.
