Is life seasonal? Profoundly. Could you wear wool in each? Of course, but Stormy Kromer values diversity, and sought to make a lightweight, brushed canvas field cap to take you deep into summer. And back out again. Unlined with a squared brim to shield the sun of any season - indiscriminately.
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 ordered the field cap on line. Great hat for my job which is 90% indoors, so its not too hot to wear inside but nice to have the ear protection when I'm out side. I wear a 7 1/8 and this hat fits too tight. Would order a size larger next time.
One of my three Kromers, and all I can say is it's amazing. I purchased it late summer and wore it in a temperature swing of almost a hundred degrees. Works surprisingly great in 90 degree heat, and still works wonders below zero. My brother recently purchased a Field Cap after I highly recommended it (a lot) to him, and we both love it. You won't see us going anywhere without our Kromers. Thank you for two truly incredible hats.
Love the cap. I am glad I read the reviews. I have an original Kromer, and went one size smaller for the Field Cap. Fits like a glove.
From a proud Michigander living "overseas" (in Mass.) I love my 4th Stormy Kromer.... my wife thinks I am crazy spending this kind of cash on a hat, but it is so comfortable and perfect for Mass. warm weather, and it will last forever. The cool thing is that other Sk fans will spot the style and nod knowingly. I have already passed one along to the future generation: my grandson Tim , a rabid hiker in WA mountains, "swiped" my red and black plaid winter hat and he loves it. Plus, he is 6'6" so the hat is very prominent on the trails around Seattle! So he is a great advert for SK and he tells everyone to check the website!
Best hat I've ever owned! This is my second Kromer, I have a Mackinaw for fall and winter and the Field Cap in Wheat for spring and summer. I can't say enough about how much I like it. I'm outside almost all of the time and this hat as proved to be very durable, and very comfortable, and after a summer I washed it and now it has an awesome patina. I don't use the flaps a whole lot, but when the wind picks up, it's really nice to have. Mine was a little smaller than I anticipated based on the Mackinaw (which I owned first), I would recommend ordering one size larger than measured.
Be careful with the size when ordering, I own an original Kromer and was wanting something for the spring and summer so I ordered the field cap in the same size as the original and I should have gotten it a size smaller as this one seems to run big. Wore it in the rain hoping it'll shrink a bit, we'll see... Otherwise seems to be of the same good quality as the original.
My wife bought the field cap for my birthday. Love the longer bill to keep the sun off my face while fishing. Great hat! -Bry Bry
My first field cap. I own 9 wool SKs and one waxed cotten. Might get some strange looks wearing wool this summer. So I bought a moss colored field cap. The field cap fits comfortable just like the wool. Being in construction this cap will work great for me. THANKS SK. -spitchford
Packed or wore this beauty to the duck blind in California. Wool was nice in the cold morning, but the extra bill was an eye saver as temps and sun rose. If it rained (and it didn't do much of that this year) pulled out the wax camo. -Chuck
The field cap is great for warmer temps.I have an original which works well for the cold winter, but with the lighter field cap I can go Stormy Kromer year round. Life is good! -Stephen
They say that when you own a Stormy Kromer, no other cap will ever satisfy your taste for comfort or quality. And we believe that’s true too, so we offer what other clothing manufacturers might consider a little crazy. Learn more here.
