I brought it along backpacking at Glacier National Park in early May where I really learned just how useful it was. Glacier in May is still very cold, it dipped below zero every night and snowed a few times while we were up there. When the sun disappears behind the mountains the temperature drops.
I most often wore it around my neck while still tied in the configuration that I could pull it over as a hood and around my mouth as a mask. When tied like that it provides excellent insulation (hot or cold) and just feels really good. The cotton almost feels like fleece. I often wear it like that for a majority of the day at my cabin.
When you have the mask around your face it blocks wind as well as any single-purpose mask you could ever buy. However, I wear glasses and often those single-purpose thinsulate or any other material masks always, always cause my breath to fog my glasses. I've never had my glasses fog up wearing my Shemagh.
The hood keeps you as warm as a light wool cap, but with the benefit of covering most of your exposed skin instead of just the top of your head. I wear it at night because cold air still gets into your sleeping bag through the hole where your head is. I've found nothing better to stave off that cold than the Shemagh.
Even in the heat, after several hours of backpacking I threw it over my back where my shirts were soaked in sweat and becoming too cool in the sun. It stopped the sun from evaporating too much sweat too quickly and kept the temperature much more even.
When you're not using it, it's light and thin enough to pack anywhere comfortably.
It was great to take along backpacking in the cold and it'll be the first thing packed when I head out next year, and I keep it on me at all times of the day any day of the year at my cabin. It's permanently a part of my cold-weather gear, and I even keep it in my car during the summer for those cold morning commutes. It was worth the $15 or so I paid and easily that much again.
I used it for small hikes with success, but I eventually had an 11 hour field project from sunrise to sunset where I found out exactly how great this thing is. At high noon it was exceedingly hot, and I was wearing a regular hat. I eventually took it off in favor of the shemagh and found that it kept me much cooler and protected my ears from burning. A few hours later when the sun eventually set, the shemagh then started to keep my entire face warm.
I live in Laramie now where temperatures have been reaching -40 with wind chill, and it's one of the few things that protects me when walking from campus building to building. Looks great, keeps you warm, keeps you cool. Perfect for outdoor work or rapidly changing temperatures
So I've had to edit my review three times as I've purchased this product in three different colors and had three different experiences:
Pink: Excellent quality, no concern about knock-offs or factory seconds. Really what I expect from Rothco.
Foliage: Mediocre quality, lots of loose weaves but seems to hold up after some use. Possible bad batch, knock-off or factory second. Not really what I want, but usable. After a few months of occasional use it has begun to completely unravel.
Coyote: Poor quality, definitely a knock-off or a factory second or both. A serious disappointment, lots of fringing and loose weaves. Not worth $12, not even worth $4.
Summation: Quality is too much of a gamble, at least from this source.
