    I have 3 I typically carry, one is a black and tan Recycled Firefighter nomex hank.

    The other is a Pocket Hanks hank in "Seven Seas" print.

    The third, no pic, is a black hank with blue line and my badge number on it.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I normally carry a bandana with me to wipe the sweat off my forehead. It's the ones you can by from the dollar store or Walmart.

    Actually, I tend to carry old army hankies, cheap, reliable and perfect for "throw-away/hand me down", if needed...

    I've been carrying a bandana or handkerchief for as long as I can remember. I agree, the handkerchief is an underrated bit of EDC. I bet my bandana gets used more than my flashlight. Definitely gets used more than fire tools or firearms. Probably a Swiss Army knife is the only bit of EDC that gets used more frequently than the bandana.

    Like you, I sew my own, although I have several purchased hankies, too. They get washed regularly, so I like having a few back-ups. I make mine a bit on the large side (27-29").

    During 2020, the bandana got displaced by a Buff which was acceptable as a mask in some places. The Buff serves similar roles, but I generally prefer a silk or cotton dew rag.
