Wearing a shemaugh is not only for the people in the Middle East. Made from 100% cotton, this shemaugh is perfect for covering your face from dust and smoke; keeping your head warm during the winter or cool weather; securing your hair from extreme wind; and protecting your face from scratchy branches in the woods. It's lightweight, cool and tough at 44 inches. It's a must-have accessory if you work in a desert or a field or engaged in outdoor adventures like camping, hiking, photography, or playing Airsoft. The BlackHawk Shemaugh is currently in use with U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, is available in different colors to match your uniform and personal style.
