CAT 2 FR American Shemagh Beige Neck Gaiter
Our original American Shemagh (pronounced shəmäg') arc and flame resistant neck gaiter was made as a tribute to the shemaghs worn by US Special Forces in Afghanistan. Whether you call it a keffiyeh, hattah, ghutrah or headscarf, the cloth was made from lightweight and breathable material to protect people in arid regions from sandstorms, the sun and dust.
Made from our 6.2 oz., FR cotton jersey material, our FR neck gaiter is soft and comfortable to wear, lightweight and safe to wear against your skin. We added an asymmetrical ribbed panel to provide stretch so it will fit almost any size head and it is Made in the USA.
