The shemagh, also known as the keffiyeh or Arab scarf, is a simple yet efficient way to protect your face and neck from sun, wind and sand. It also works well as alternative winter headwear, particularly in areas with snow and strong winds. Although most are cotton, warmer, faster-drying cotton-wool blends are also available. Styles of wearing the shemagh vary, but wrapping the scarf around the head and face provides optimal protection from the elements. Instructions for Wearing a Shemagh >>> Step 1) Fold the shemagh into a triangle. Wrap it around the back and over the top of your head, with the folded edge across your forehead, making sure that about two-thirds of the material is on your left. The right end ought to be long enough to come to your chest. Step 2) Use your left hand to pinch the shemagh about 3 or 4 inches from the folded edge and let the edge hang forward. Step 3) Let go of the right end. Using your left hand, hold the edge of the shemagh next to your left cheek and hold it near your left cheekbone.two whatsapp in one phone After you do this, use your right hand to pull the left end of the shemagh across your face, over your nose. Step 4) Continue to wrap the shemagh around your face and head until you get it back over your left shoulder. Grip the right tail and hold it to keep from pulling the shemagh off your head as you wrap. Work your hands down toward the ends as you wrap. Step 5) Pull the shemagh as tight as needed to feel comfortable. At the end of the process, take both ends and, somewhere near your right temple, tie them in a knot. A square knot will secure the shemagh adequately.
Shemagh Everyday Carry
I really enjoy my Shemagh. I live in CO, and the fall cold snap hasn’t affected me in the slightest with this thing on. People are complaining about it not being super soft.. When it was designed (It is traditionally called a Keffiyeh), they didn’t have stuff like ‘Microfleece’. Regardless, It’s a multi-purpose scarf/head wrap that you should carry or wear every day. These scarfs have almost unlimited uses. Here’s a few examples:
Top quality – of the dozens I own. Ymmv tho!
I purchased the camel/black color. Nov-2016
Great quality! Really happy with it
Great quality! Really happy with it. First one I bought so so far so good. Gonna be good for going out on the ATV or snowmobile Or hunting.
Definitely good ones
It’s way easier to find a crappy shemagh that will change your hair/skin color and fall apart when you breathe in their general direction, than it is to find a good one.
The quality of the fabric is nice and it isn’t itchy
Purchased this for a trip into a dune field, more for the look than anything. The quality of the fabric is nice and it isn’t itchy. YOU MUST WASH THESE BEFORE YOU WEAR THEM! I didn’t wash mine and got a rash on my forehead. After it was washed it was a great product.
Slightly pricey for a shemagh, but top notch quality.
First off, the colors for the Black/Camel Star Pattern Shemagh, are significantly different then the images. It is more of a “Black/slightly off-white” where as the images make it look legit BROWN. However, I still like it.
So very versatile and useful. The perfect size and weight.
This was a fantastic purchase! I used the head scarf for so many things in my vacation. I used it in at least 5 different neck scarf configurations and over my head at least twice to keep the sun off my face. However, by far my favorite use was as a sun shade. One afternoon I wasn’t feeling up to walking around in the sun with my husband.
A Burning Man Must
Best Burning Man purchase this year BY FAR. I can’t comment on its authenticity, but if you learn how to tie it up properly from youtube and buy some solid goggles, dust storms are no match for your awesome face. I also loved rocking it tied around my neck. Provides some extra shade for your neck and shoulders and ladies loved it too
Practical Functions Review
I ordered two of these for personal use during the winter. Although they are made to keep sun and sand out, I have seen many survival experts suggest these as a tool to use to protect your self from the wind and cold. The packaged arrived and was the right size and no extra shipping charges. It came wrapped in a clear cellophane bag and was folded.
