Further Information
Further Information
  • Originally used for protection against hostile desert conditions
  • Provides protection against the sun, wind, sandstorms and the cold at night
  • 100% cotton
  • Size 110 x 115cm
  • Great for enhancing camouflage effectiveness
This is the classic shemagh scarf, a design which is very similar to that worn by British Forces in olive green. Lightweight and made of 100% cotton, this scarf is very versatile and has many uses. It is commonly used to cover the head, neck, shoulders and face to offer protection from intense sun, but also enhances concealment when worn with camouflage clothing.
While offering protection from wind, sand and sun, these scarves can also be used to keep warm in cold conditions by folding into more layers.
These scarves will also have many outdoor/survival uses such as for tying a makeshift sling, basic filtration, foraging or as cordage.
These are of good quality, with the contrast colour sewn in as opposed to printed as with some cheaper versions. We sell these in popular colours so that you can find a match for the environment in which you'll be wearing them in.
Approximate weight of a scarf is 200g.

Great quality!!!
A great quality scarf. It can be very hit and miss buying one of these on line, most companies are charging way over the odds for nothing more than a printed tea towel. This scarf is 100% woven cotton and the size seems perfect to me. Also the price is more than reasonable.
Pros: Woven cotton, Good size
Cons: none
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: Yes

Quality Will Out
Loads of places sell shemaghs on the net, but the quality is variable. You can't always tell from descriptions or pictures what you're going to get. Fortunately, M&G stock good 'uns .. 100% cotton, woven (not printed) patterning, tassels (not silly great fashion things, and not a plain border liable to loose threads). A couple of inches shorter on a side than some you can get, but this makes you more careful with tying techniques, so not a negative.
Pros: Tassels, Colourfast , Woven pattern, Robust Cotton
Cons: Could be a touch larger
Sizing: Feels small
Would recommend: Yes

Pros: Role Play Training, Training, First Aid, Warmth, Cam & Con
Cons: none

101 uses and beyond
The shemagh has so many uses that it would be impossible to list them all. Its main use is to cover the exposed face and neck in cold temperatures and provide protection from wind. Conversely it can also be used in hot temperatures to cool the face and neck, after being soaked in water. Its other uses survival uses are extensive, it can be used as a bandage, sling, water filter (in extreme circumstances), towel, short rope, carrying pouch - The list is endless and possibilities are left to the imagination. New shemaghs are prone to the dye bleeding, especially the olive ones. This is by no means a defect. To avoid the dye getting on your skin and clothing, I recommend filling a bucket of water and leaving your shemagh in there for 30 minutes. You'll see the dye change the colour of the water. Repeat this step until the water is clear. Don't worry, your shemagh will not lose its colour. A piece of kit I would never be without. A use in every climate and circumstance.
Pros: Great value, Endless uses
Cons: Dye can bleed when new
Would recommend: Yes
