I have another Kromer, I have given several as well. And they were/are all loved. So I ordered a Partridge plaid for something different and for in the duck blind. It is a different hat. Thinner ear flaps, different cut. Just not what I was expecting. Or wanting. BUY A KROMER, you will not be disapointed. Just beware of the Partridge. It just seems like a lighter hat. Maybe a good fit for you, but not what I was hoping for I guess.
