My brother Gary introduced me to Stormy. I live in northern Minnesota and operate a four season resort. I'm outside a lot. Stormy keeps my head warm and the ear flaps work very very well. My first purchase was the new "Partridge Plaid", currently own an Olive Green and a Brown Stormy. I wear all for different occasions. Can't say enough good things about Stormy Kromer, they fit well, look great, quality is out standing, made in the U.S.A. doesn't get any better then that. I get lot's of complements and of course other comments,i.e. "Elmer Fudd". I simply relate the Stormy Kromer story to the non wearer's and they become impressed with the story/history, but mostly Made in the U.S.A. That is the frosting on the cake! Keep up the good work .Wonderful product line. My next purchase, the Black Stormy.
