I have been wearing Hoo-rags bandanas for many years now. I first found them when I was testing for my Scuba diving certification. My dive instructor suggested I use one to help contain my hair, which was to short for a pony tail, but to long to just leave flowing. I needed to find out more about them at that point.
What I thought at first was just a sun protection used in the Southern States, is really much, much more. They are made of 100% polyester microfiber, which wicks away moisture and protects from the sun. The Hoo-rags are UPF rated 30. This tube of microfiber is highly stretchable, which makes it very versatile. You can wear the Hoo-rag in so many ways; the face mask, the neck gaiter, the balaclava, the headband, the pirate rag, the beanie, the pony tail holder and what they are calling the Alice rag, which is similar to a headband for women. Now when I was scuba diving, I wore my Hoo-rag covering my hair, I achieved this by pulling it over my head completely, then pulling it back up over my hair, leaving part covering my forehead. My dive mask kept the Hoo-rag in place, and it worked wonderful for keeping my hair out of my face, especially when I needed to remove my mask underwater.
Since that time, I have purchased several patterns of Hoo-rags, including ones that I use for hunting. Even if I
don’t plan on wearing it on a specific day, I like to keep one in my backpack. My favorite way to use them for hunting is as a face mask, but I have also used it when the temperatures have dropped as either hand coverings, neck gaiters, or covering my head to keep in warmth. With all of the available patterns, you can find one that will work for any hunting season. But why stop there, get a couple and use them year round! There are many camo patterns to choose from, including; officially licensed Mossy Oak’s, Kryptek, Digital and Tactical. They also carry a High Viz Orange which would be perfect for firearm seasons.
A really nice feature that Hoo-rag has is the ability to make custom orders. Twenty four is their entry level order, and the turn around is pretty quick. You can design your own, or they will work with you to design your perfect Hoo-rag. My custom order started with an email of our Ladies in Camo logos in Vector File format. Within a couple of days, I had several ideas sent to me, based on my initial request. Soon I had agreed on an image, and production started!! Within 3 weeks of my original email, I had my custom made, super cool, Ladies In Camo HooRags in my hands!
