Foraging Bandana

So thx for asking my thoughts on the bandana. The material is thin. I use a bandana for protection from the sun and soak up perspiration. For the price point I expected a little more. I love my Viking Spark necklace. Worth every cent.

Great quality bad service.

I ordered a viking whetstone necklace and a foraging bandana. I received only the necklace without the bandana. I would love to get the bandana I paid for as well. The whetstone necklace works great however.
