Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I had previously ordered and received a Rothco shemagh. I am pleased with it, but found the blue color to be a bit too much when I wore it at construction sites (double-takes and stares from coworkers). I realized I wanted something more subtle in color, so I ordered the Army Universe sand & tan military shemagh. The day after it arrived (one day sooner than promised), winds in New Mexico were blowing at 40 to 60 mph and the sand was actually painful on my face. I folded the Army Universe cloth to make a face mask (hard hats are required head wear, so I didn't make the classic middle east head and face wrap). It worked very well and the color did not attract undue attention. It actually matches the color of the local sand quite well.
Regarding the qualities of the Rothco vs. Army Universe shemaghs: The Rothco is made in India, the Army Universe in Pakistan. The Rothco is of a slightly looser weave and the tied knots farther apart. The Army Universe seems just a bit more...
The overall quality of the shemagh was not bad at all, but it did not look at all like pictured. I was expecting a nice green and black design like the image shown but instead, when unfolded, there's little AK 47's all over it. So much for a good quality design. I was extremely disappointed.
Nice design, 42"x44" in size, the thread count is very low, this is like a gauze single ply bandage. Not sure how effective it will be in filtering out dust and dirt, durability is very questionable but you get what you pay for I suppose which is one nice thing about this, it is not that expensive.
It is light weight due to low thread count however and that does help in a hot environment, makes a nice sun block if nothing else. I hand washed this right out of the package, and my water turned green as the dye in the green threads washed out. The white threads then turned a light tinged green. Glad I washed it first so the dye would not be bleeding onto my skin or other clothing, the threads should have been color fast, they are not.
You are warned. Would not recommend this for use in a dust environment, if you are wearing goggles with any kind of catch edge, or a jacket with zipper taps they will most likely snag and tear holes into this.
