The Northwoods Trapper Hat
View Gallery

Trapper hats were once an essential tool for a tough, severe-weather trade. Now, those hats are ubiquitous and, in many cases, made so cheaply they'’re unlikely to last more than a cold season or two. Stormy Kromer® took our original 6-panel design, our deep commitment to lasting, quality craftsmanship, and created a faux rabbit-fur trapper with Lamilite insulation in the crown. Built to last. Built for any element. Made like you.



  • 23-25 oz. 80/20 wool/nylon blend
  • 100% quilted nylon lining in crown
  • 80% acrylic/20% polyester faux rabbit fur lining and trim
  • Lamilite® 100% polyester continuous filament fiber insulation in crown
  • Antique brass snaps
  • Six-panel crown construction
  • Made in the USA with globally sourced materials
  • Dry clean only

Cap Sizing

To get your size, measure comfortably around your head where your cap will sit, with a tape measure. Take that number in inches, divide by 3.14 (pi) and round up to the nearest eighth. This is your cap size. See the chart for size conversions. You can also print out our hat sizer, click here.

How to use the earband

Listen up! You know how you cup your ears in a maelstrom of noise trying to hear someone ahead? How you make little finger pockets around your lobes to catch all the sound waves and block what’s behind? Go ahead. Try it now. In that position, you're basically poised to pull down a Stormy Kromer earband with ease.

Nice quality hat, very warm.

Needed a hat to get me through the Wyoming winters. The Northwoods Trapper Hat was just the ticket. Super comfortable and super warm, and with ear flaps that keep the ears and face nice and toasty even when the Wyoming winds kick up (which is just about 98% of always). Decided to go with the charcoal color and couldn't be happier with the looks of this hat. I wear a size 7 hat and the medium Northwoods Trapper is a perfect fit. Thanks to this hat, winter in Wyoming has met its match.

Under chin fits great. Midwest winters need to be really cold. Very comfortable around brow. Craftsmanship is ideal and I look forward to many years of service.

Fits like a glove and love the quality of it.
It’s all made in America and that’s the best part of all

Super warm, super stylish and so beautifully packaged! My only wish is that the under chin closures allowed for an overhead option. Nevertheless, money well spent.

I already owned a competitor’s “heavy big warm” bomber hat. I bought this one thinking I could wear it on nicer “warmer” winter days. Was out walking the dog today in 0 to -5 degree temps & wind & my melon stayed nice & toasty!! Loved it so much I’ve already bought another one!!

I purchased 2 of these hats for my college-age sons who go to school in the Midwest. They are beautifully crafted! Quality materials and perfectly stitched. I am very happy with my purchase!

Ended up buying two.... sturdy and well constructed with 2 noteworthy issues- first off, size runs small which is how I came to buy two- gave the first one to my wife because although my measurements said to order Large it was too small. Secondly, both of us found that snapping under the chin is difficult... not enough material to comfortably & easily snap together and when snapped it is uncomfortably tight in the throat area. Snaps are unworkable with gloves on.
