The Waxed Cotton Cap


Our three-season water-repelling cap is a lightweight alternative to the Original. Perfect for soggy spring mornings and frosty bird hunts.

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.

    I have purchased 7 Kromers over the last 20 years. I absolutely love this one. It is perfect for cool/wet weather in spring and fall. I still wear the wool Kromers when it's cold and snowy but I have found this lighter weight and water resistant hat to be perfect for outdoor activities when you don't need the heavier warmth. For fishing and boating, spring and fall, I wear this hat all the time. I also wear it for running errands and outdoor chores. I have been a Kromer fan for years. I think this is a great addition to the Kromer line. This might be my favorite Kromer, although I love the others too. This is a great hat!Mark, over on the thumb.

    Just received my TWO Waxed Cotton Caps (Tan and Blaze Orange) to go with my collection of SK caps (Now Seven Total of Various Types) to protect my bald head. Since it was raining, I had the perfect opportunity to test out the water-resistant quality of each. They both passed with flying colors! I could not recommend Stormy Kromer caps any more than I currently am. I wear them to church and somebody ALWAYS compliments me about the cap I am wearing (not in the Sanctuary though). This is an important note because I don't get compliments about the way I dress--ever. Maybe I should buy a shirt or a coat from Stormy Kromer too. -Rich12_66

    I have three Kromers. This is the hat I use when the weather is wet and cool. It was the ticket when I was in costal Alaska in October. It also works for early duck season. -Ike

    My oh my, got my hat and the question is why did I take so long to order one. Fit is perfect and it looks great. Getting a lot of good comments on the hat! Its well made by good ole "Americans"! One complaint is ya'll need to use raw materials made here in the USA and not from outside America! -copenhagen cowboy

    I expected it to be nice, but was surprised. The pictures really don't do this cap justice. It has a great fit, and is extremely well made; it looks like it'll last forever. I got a blaze one for hunting in mild weather, but think now that I'll get another color for casual wear. -Matt

    Great hat! Finally found my new all year round hat, as I am a hat man. I have forgotten my wallet and phone at home before but I will never forget my hat especially this one. -Mr. A

    The perfect Kromer for a cool drizzely day! I own several original and Rancher Kromers, but when it's above freezing, the "waxed cotton" Kromer is what you're looking for to keep you dry and warm! -T/A

    I just got my "waxed" Stormy Kromer hat. Now I have my wool for winter and a waxed for the fair weather. It's great! Thank you Kristen for your prompt and helpful service. You're the best!Lloyd -Lloyd



You might not need instructions to wear your Stormy Kromer masterpiece, but there is a right way and a wrong way. The right way involves putting the cap on your head, grabbing the ear band on both sides and pulling down. There’s no unfolding or flipping, and you don’t have to take your cap off. Just pull down and settle in.
