This large cloth in many ways is a strange multitool that only offers up all of its potential to those who have used it and have the experience. Let’s take a closer look.

Sun Protection

One of the most important roles that a shemagh can play is standing against the sun. We spend so much time in our home we only really face the sun when we are on the beach for hours at a time. One factor you might not consider in a survival situation is the blistering sun.  It can be a real problem but a shemagh will keep you covered, at least on the face, head and neck. This can make a world of difference.

Facial Recognition

There are new challenges that we face all the time. We still do not understand the threat of this out of control technology. What we do know is that your phone can recognize your face and many other cameras can, as well. If that ever becomes a problem, the shemagh could keep you covert and safe.


A more common use for a shemagh is filtering. You will find that you can use this to filter larger particulates out of water before using another method for sanitizing that water. You can also use a collection of shemaghs to create a three tier bio filter that is a much better water filter.

No matter what you use the shemagh for you are going to find that there are a number of uses out there far beyond what we have covered. You can even use a shemagh as a small backpack!
