The 5ive Star Gear Coalition Desert Shemagh is an excellent piece of kit to have downrange. The shemagh makes an excellent gift for a deploying serviceman or for one currently in harms way. The shemagh is an all-purpose item in the Middle East, it can be used to keep the sun off your neck, makes a handy sweat rag or dust mask, or even a scarf in colder weather. Plus it is big enough to be used as a sling or even a makeshift tablecloth. These things have too many uses to mention here.
