The shemagh (pronounced “she-mahg”) is the traditional desert head wear used to effectively protect your head & neck from the blazing sun. It’s also been used for decades by military forces operating in arid or jungle environments. In fact, the shemagh is officially issued to British and Australian soldiers for desert warfare. But you don’t have to be a soldier to appreciate this versatile piece of headgear. Protects against sun, blown dust & sand, bugs, and rain.
