    My initial order had a minor defect; however, the gray bearded green beret team went above and beyond expectations to solve the problem at no expense to me. I highly recommend this outfit!

    Their customer service is the best I have ever experienced.

    A great addition to any kit. It’s bigger than my other shemagh. Good quality.

    One of my most versatile pieces of gear. Can be used for so many things, and this particular one seems to be pretty good quality.

    I got this because of all the things you can do with it. I was just carrying an old t-shirt but now have a purpose designed item. Seems well made and large enough to do lots of stuff with it and still have some left over if I cut it up for some things, although that’s not my plan. Joshua and others talk about making char cloth, for example. If I’m out and need to do that, I’ll have plenty of cloth. Also subdued to use as camo. I like this shemagh.

    This is the quality authentic version . Well made and thicker then many other “ knockoffs “. This isn’t a knock off . Well priced and def an added piece of kit

    Absolutely amazing. One of the most versatile pieces of kit around. Great headwear, super breathable even double layered. Pull that straight down and it’s a sweet neck scarf around the fire. Sling, baby carrier, small wood carrier, water strainer/filtration, shawl, pillow, splint, bandage, tourniquet, and…what else?

    The most underrated piece of gear I know of! This can be used to filter water, melt ice, put an arm in a sling, carry a huge pile of kindling, serve as a belt, protect you from sun, protect you from cold, and lots of other things. This one is a full-sized version, which is what you want. I’ve purchased others from online retailers that were smaller and thinner.

    Nice cloth, I feel very cool when wearing it.
