25 Ways To Use A Bandana

I bet everyone at one point in their life has owned a bandana – and you would be amazed at all the different ways one can utilize this classic accessory. There is a reason why we dedicate over 2 pages in our catalog and have 23 different styles of bandanas. We also have wide assortment of colors and patterns ranging from digital camo to “Don’t Tread On Me”, and even a brand new zombie themed bandana.

With all of this hoopla going on I became curious of all the fun and unique ways a bandana can be used by almost everyone and began to conjure up some ideas. Keep in mind that the list below expresses how a bandana can be used in fashionable ways, as a survival tool, and in everyday activities. I have also demonstrated some uses with my personal favorite, the pink trainmen bandana.
