Sometimes I'd like to be able to see the sky, or the trees above, right through the brim of my normal Kromer. Or, maybe be able to get into tight spots working in the shop while keeping my head toasty warm.
The brimless Kromer is the ticket. This is my new favorite hat. In fact, I'm wearing it right now... in the house... next to a very chilly window. ;)
When you want to take it off (-and, I'm not sure when that is-), you can scrunch it up and slap it into your back pocket for somewhat-safe-keeping.
