The 5ive Star Gear Shemagh is a traditional Middle Eastern scarf that was adopted by military personnel operating in harsh desert climates. This versatile garment can serve many functions. Our soft breathable 100% cotton shemaghs provide excellent protection from sun exposure, harsh winds and dust. Built for battle, but these tough scarves can work well for civilian use as well. You can wear one as a fashion accessory in winter or as head and neck protection from the sun during outdoor sports or tough jobs. These shemaghs are rugged enough to withstand tough conditions, but soft enough for comfortable, all-day wear.
