Hoo-Rag Multi-function Head Gear Review

I’ve been using the Hoo-Rag for a few weeks now, but I’ve been using a similar product for years (the Buff) , and I love them. The Hoo-Rag multi-function head gear is useful beyond the easy-on neck warmer: you can bend and twist the microfiber fabric into beanies, balaclavas, head bands, and more. At only 1 oz (28 g), I often carry a couple in my pack, especially as the temperatures cool.

The Hoo-Rag is a multi-function head gear made from a blended fabric. The seamless tube of fabric measures approximately 10 × 19 in (25.5 × 48.25 cm) but has a generous stretch to fit over all kinds of body types.

I highly recommend this head gear, and I’d like to thank Hoo-Rag for sending me a sample to test!

    I agree with Dan… love the applications I haven’t tried with the Hoo-Rag competitor version… I think I’ll rock the ascot tonight! So much more useful than the sling.

    Would love to see a BSA design on this to get my scouts interested in wearing one.

    Warning: The vendor’s site is almost unusable, it’s so “tricksy”. It takes awhile to actually find the sub-zero hoo-rag.

    Also, it’s full of psudo-patria “Americah” crap that you have to wade through, too. (If you have to pledge to it, or wear it on your sleeve, do you really believe it?)
