The traditional Shemagh scarf, which has, surprisingly enough, found its way to western military use. Many colours available.

The shemagh scarf, also known as keffiyeh, ghutra and hatta, is traditional arabic headwear. For quite some time these "palestinian scarves" have been popular even among common folks and not just activists of some sort.

As so often with fashion, armed forces have been the forerunners who realized the practical and fashionable value of this item. The British men at arms have been using these for over 70 years and in the Gulf War was introduced to American forces as well.

A shemagh is a warm and comfy scarf when worn around the neck, but can be tied to cover the entire head leaving just a slit for the eyes to protect the wearer from elements.

Size: 110 x 110 cm. The shemagh is usually utilized folded as a triangle (ie. in half). Then it can be wrapped around the head leaving parts exposed if needed. Here is an illustrate d guide on how to wrap the shemagh (in Finnish) the "proper" way. Bandanas and capes aside, this can be used as a makeshift bag or a bandage - just use your imagination.

Factory new, 100% cotton. Made in India.

I purchased one of these as an after thought while going to process my order. For 10 US dollars, there's not much to complain about. It's large enough to make a hobo stick bag and when folded, it works well as a 'tactical' scarf. It's a neat little novelty item with real world applications. There was some fraying but other than that, I don't see why I wouldn't pick up a few of the other colors as well.

The shemaghs I received had the Sarma tag / made in India and the quality is far greater than shemaghs I have purchased elsewhere.

On todella hyvä huivi itse käytän maakuntajoukkojen harjoituksissa vihreää huivi mallia piiloutuu yllättävän hyvin M05 kanssa. Naisetkin tykkää yllättävän paljon tästä huivi mallista nimittäin kaupungilla näkee yllättävän paljon tätä huvi mallia liikkeellä. Naiset tuntuisi tykkäävän tuosta Khaki värisestä jostain syystä.
Eräs Japanilainen vieras halusi huivini ennen kotimatkaa joten annoin sen hänelle

Sopivan kokoinen rätti, jonka saa kiedottua pään/kaulan ympärille lukemattomilla eri tavoilla. Kangas sopii paksuutensa puolesta leudoimmilla kuin kylmemmilläkin keleillä. Ottakaa pesuohjeet tosissaan. Heitin omani koneeseen sen kummemmin ajattelematta ja vihreä/musta huivini värit haalistuivat hieman.

These are worn and go by several names in arabic, farsi and even hebrew. It can become a sauna in Death Valley but a valuable
multi use item for virtually no wieght. There is only ONE remaining Palestinian loomworks making these in the occupied territories. He sells on EBAY. If you like these buy one from him out of respect.

Onpa tullut kanniskeltua (ja yks hukattua, yhyy). Paljon on kertynyt kokemuksia normikietomisen ja riiiputtelun lisäksi - mm: yhen kaupan muovikassi repes kyljestään ni huivi auki ja krääsä maitopurkkeineen ja perunapusseineen ym.ym. keskelle, kulmista nippuun ja kummasti ohut puuvillakangas kesti kämpille kuskaamisen, toisella kertaa oli kaveri lähettänyt pari läppäriä korjattavaksi saatananmoisessa laatikossa.
Tulivat tietty matkahuoltoon vaikka olikin merkitty lähellä paketiksi! No sieltä kanniskelin sylissä hetken, mutta kun matka ei sujunut kuin Stromsössä, huivista narunkorvike alakulmia vähän auki ja paketti roikotettavaksi, ni ei tarvinnu taksia soittaa

Kangas on liian ohutta ja nähtävästi teko heikkolaatuista. Oma shemagh-huivi on revennyt pelkässä kaulahuivikäytössä jo kahdesta kohtaa. Ei, en ole riuhtonut ja repinyt huivia, sillä en ole yrittänyt itseni kuristamista sitä kaulaan sitoessani. Huivin herkät kohdat ovat näissä rastapampulapäissä, joista huivi on kuin valmiiksi revittyä.

Harmi kun hukkasin aidon käsintehdyn palestiinalaishuivin. Se nimittäin kesti kymmenisen vuotta ilman yhtään repeämistä, sillä kangas oli laadukkaampaa sekä paksumpaa ja pampulapäiden vieressä kangas oli nätisti yhtenäistä. Nyt mennään kuitenkin näillä halvoilla rihkamakopioilla.

Erittäin hyvä kaikkeen käyttöön kesällä ja talvella. Kannattaa varsinki inttiin hommata tämmönen. Lämmittää mukavasti kylmällä ja toimii hyvänä varjona helteellä.

Accurately described and as pictured. It will make a fine scarf, water filter, or any other reason you might need a piece of cloth bigger than a handkerchief. I was not happy with the loose ends, until I was told that is the way they are made and it survived a trip through the wash "bachelor style" (No regard for anything, stuff it in the washer) . It has grown on me and found a place in my pack.

Vuoden verran ollut käytössä musta/valkea, lähes päivittäin, poislukien kesäaika. Toki käytön jälkeä on jo hitusen, muttei erikoisempia repeämiä tai muutakaan. Aavistuksen voi olla arka konepesulle, mutta muutaman kerran muun pyykin seassa pestynä ei ole siis ainakaan minulla osumaa saanut.

Todettu myös toimivaksi päähineeksi tai retkityynyliinan täytteeksi riippumattokäytössä.

Ihan hyvä huivi, menee kaulahuivina siinä missä villainenkin. Ilkeät ihmiset tosin kutsuvat shemaghia terroristihuiviksi.

As I was finishing up my first order from Varusteleka a while back I passed by these and decided I might see what the fuss was about. Its one of those items that is apparently good enough for a lot of armies in the world, so it should be good enough for me. Added one to the cart, and added two more in cause they might be useful in my hunting pack and bug-out bag. Very very very happy I picked up extras of this. Large enough for an arm sling for any sized person, large enough to tie up in a hobo-sack and use for carrying, easy to wear and stays in place on your head. Overall just a solid $10 head-cover with some medical applications.

Hyvä ostos. Olen hukannut musta-vihreän ja ostin nyt mustan sen tilalle. Shemagh on hyvännäköinen ja toimii hyvin vähänkin varustelekamaisen vaatetuksen kanssa.. talvellakin toimii helvetin hyvänä kaulahuivina joka ei kutia niinkuin villaiset mutta on silti lämmin. Helppo nostaa lämpimämmällä ilmalla naaman eteen suojaamaan lentävältä hiekalta jne.

Onkohan materiaali oikeasti 100% puuvillaa? Ostin vaimolle valkomustan värjätäksemme sen syvän punaiseksi Dylonin värillä, mutta huivista tuli lähinnä vaaleanpunainen ja kudoksessa näkyi vaaleiksi jääneitä säikeitä, eli ei ottanut väriä niin hyvin kuin olisi voinut kuvitella näinkin ohuen puuvillan ottavan. Joko näissä on joku tehdaskäsittely joka esti väriä tarttumasta täysin, tai sitten materiaali voi olla sekoitetta. Muuten hyvä huivi, jolla on kokoa aivan riittävästi eikä huivi ole liian paksu lämpimilläkänä keleilä käytettäväksi.
