      This design is by Wazoo Survival Gear LLC in cooperation with Dr. Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbruggen and Dr. Nicole Apelian. Illustrations of Burdock, Nettle and Prickly Pear Cactus copyright: Foraging and Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook. Made and printed in the USA! The plant representations and denoted characteristics featured on this bandana are in no way intended to be a source of proper identification, use, or processing of plants. Wazoo Survival Gear LLC and all other mentioned parties are not responsible for any harm resulting from the act of harvesting or attempting to forage plants.



This is my design for a survival bandana that I have used and refined for several years now. I have found it to be a invaluable tool in the bush and now want to make them available for everyone!


The standard cotton bandana is already on everyone's list as a must have 100+ use item in your pack. With the modifications of the Bandanet we expand those uses many times over.


100% Cotton bandana with the highest quality USA black no-see-um netting sewn in a pattern that works as a head net.


To use this as a headnet you turn it inside out and the arc of the sewn net gives you the form of a head net. With the tabs left over from the arc the bandanet can be worn dew rag style as head wear in itself.

I have used these as bags to gather edibles, stuffed it with a sweater for a pillow case, strain debri from water etc. etc. almost endless possibilities for its use!


Patent Pending


Made in the USA!
