Rated 1 out of 5 by from This bandana is not soft I use these bandanas for hankerchiefs and was hoping that REI's product description was accurate when it mentioned that this product was "soft". It is in fact not soft. I've already put these bandanas that I bought from REI through the wash 15 times and they are still crunchy. I bought bandanas from another site previously and got some really soft ones, but I couldn't remember what site I bought them from. I ultimately settled on buying these from REI because they said they were soft. I would not recommend that others purchase this item if they are looking for a soft bandana.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large and versatile This is the only cotton item that ever makes it into my gear on every trip in the backcountry. Sometimes synthetics like polyester and nylon just do not get the job done of cleaning and drying the body, the dishes, or other stuff. I always pack three of these bandanas: black for general trail use (dipping into streams, wiping face and neck, quick body bath, etc), white for kitchen use, and red for 'toilet' use. Color coding is key to avoid cross uses. They dry very quickly, nearly as quickly as any synthetic fabric of similar thickness. They are stiff straight from the factory, but soften up nicely after a few washings and wringings. I still use a few of the same brand I bought about 12 years ago because they last!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fabric weave is stiff I've been buying these for decades. Though still 100% cotton the fabric they use currently is too stiff and will not soften. What happened; why change a consistently good product for the worse? FYI, I have a few cotton shirts made from the same type of fabric; they have not softened over time, either. This is destined for the garage rag pile. I'll look elsewhere; unfortunately it will probably be an import product that replaces what Carolina Mfg once had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bandana feels like a raincoat! :-( I bought 2 of these bandannas. When I bought them, they felt stiff. I have washed them lots of times, and they are still stiff. They feel like they are made of a coated fabric suitable for raincoats. They are useless for blowing my nose!I tried to contact the manufacturer ([@]), but their "Contact Us" comment form does not work, and their web site uses an invalid expired security certificate! So I sent them a letter instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Store stock is not made in the USA! I have purchased over 6 of these in different colors at my local REI store in Short Pump, VA. These scarfs are used as neck protection from the sun and as headbands. All of the scarfs have poor stitching along the edges, which frays in a short time. I have not found any color that was made in the USA! There were all made in China. Come on REI there are quality made bandannas made here in the USA. Try Tractor Supply and General Dollar for some quality scarfs which say Made in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't backpack without one...or two or three. These are great for everything from tying around your neck or head, stuffing under your hat to keep your neck shaded, drying a tent floor after you had to set up in the rain, washing something, drying out your cook pot, making a bindle for that upcoming hobo train ride, the possibilities are endless. Regarding the stiffness of the fabric: just wash it. Once. That's all it takes. Seriously.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made in USA. Good for headbands. It is true that these aren't very soft (at least not at first; I haven't washed mine many times). I like this because I fold mine into a headband and the stiffness makes it easier to fold straight lines. I could see how you might want them softer. I like that the ones of these I've bought were made in the USA and the price is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved all the colors. I would highly recommend this product for anyone who is receiving chemotherapy. I have one on my head daily. The wide choice of colors make my outfit complete.

Are these made in America?

Asked by: IndianaJane
Items can be sourced from or assembled in multiple countries. Many vendors produce the same item in multiple locations. Because of this, we are only able to state the item is imported.
