They are great to cover up if needed, protect your face when crawling through thick brush, wipe off head and face, wipe goggles down, use as a quick shade. I view them as the swiss army knife of the fabric world!
Heck I have the guys in my guard unit pissed at me becuase I wear one while we are out training. I burn like a ginger and hate it, so it keeps me covered while keeping me cool as well.
Ive used one in an assault loadout it worked fine also added some scare factor cuz i looked like a taliban lol but right now im looking at a condor sniper vail, Im sorta wondering the uses of it I know that it can be a rifle wrap but what else?
