Another indispensable piece of winter gear, these are surplus Bundeswehr / East German gray wool blend scarves which are basically identical to the WWII German army issued scarf. The only real difference is the tag. The maker tags vary. I usually cut the tag off of my scarf for reenacting. I recommend doing the same. If I find an efficient way of safely removing the tags I will modify this listing but for now they are tagged.
These are great scarves which are nice to use every day and not just for reenacting. They are warm and have a good stretch to them. I like just wrapping it around my neck several times and tucking the top end in the wrap as opposed to knotting it.
The scarves are solid gray with no stripes. I know some people like the blue stripe sometimes found on these surplus scarves and some people don't like them. I have seen evidence for both being correct but I have always preferred the solid gray. The gray color varies slightly - see photos.
