Ham T'savar - Is it a Scarf or a Hat?

A ham t'savar / neck gaiter (חַם צַוָּאר) is an item of clothing that is not just used as a neck warmer, it has a string you can pull to close one end and turn it into a hat! It's an item that you'll see many Israelis wearing in the winter.

This amazing dual-purpose item is popular and well needed by Israeli soldiers when they are patrolling in the winter months. Though they are mostly worn by soldiers you can see many Israelis donning their own (or ones they had in the IDF) when braving cold and windy winter days.
