    In day to day life bandanas may not be of much use to the average person but you should have some bandanas in your survival pack because in emergency situations they have lots of uses.

    A few of them:

    - You can use them as a tourniquets.
    - Out in the wild when hunting birds or small game you can use a bandana to make a sling.
    - In case you find vegetables or fruits [when you weren't looking for them] you can use a bandana as some sort of pouch to carry them home.
    - Use them as padding when carrying logs or something else on your shoulders.
    - Bandanas can make great collars for dogs if you have any post event.

    And there are plenty more uses.

    Agreed, I always wear a bandanna when trekking, unless it is too hot, in which case I still carry it.

    I got caught in a sand storm one time, I was very glad of my bandanna!

    I have a bunch. They are helpful when it is really hot. I've been building a large stockpile of firewood and clearing more space for our gardens lately, and they do keep the sweat out of the eyes. My daughter says I look like a pirate whilst I'm so attired. I can't help but replying with a hearty "arrrrrr". ;)
