  • Have you tried a "shemagh"?

    "... The shemagh, also known as the keffiyeh or Arab scarf, is a simple yet efficient way to protect your face and neck from sun, wind and sand. ... Styles of wearing the shemagh vary, but wrapping the scarf around the head and face provides optimal protection from the elements. ..."

    I had never tried anything but the long, skinny scarfs we are all used to here in America.
    When the youngest started working out in El Paso and New Mexico, many workmates with military experience (Afghanistan & Iraq) carried/used shemaghs, both winter and summer!
    Great for keeping dust and dirt out of your face and direct sunlight off bare skin.
    In winter, they are very good at keeping wind off your neck and warmth around your face.
    I have two. I've also used them for a face shield (camo) and warmth when hunting.
    Light weight and versatile!

    How to "tie" (wear?) a shemagh.

    They come in camo, but I'm afraid is ain't "Realtree"!

      I don't know if I could work with one, but the CBP guys use them.
      I find them very versatile and useful when I'm hunting.

          The CBO and Univ of Penn both say Biden is full of it. This massive give away will increase inflation big time.
