The Mackinaw Cap

Think: robust. Think: bomb-proof, although don'’t test this in a literal sense. Think: warmth despite all odds. Think about a hat that will follow you faithfully down any cold corridor, at any time of day or night, in any circumstance. The Mackinaw is your reliable, cold-weather companion. Kind of like a Saint Bernard, but not a dog.

Staying warm with your stormy kromer

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.

The only reason I don’t give 5 stars is that it was too big and had to return it. I am waiting for the new one to come.

One issue I can't seem to resolve is how to get the flaps over the ears. I followed the instructions but the flaps barely cover the tip of my ear. So I decided to untie the front of the cap to see if this would help, it did but there now is not enough cord left to tie into a knot. Any advise would be welcome

Hi there - the earband does simply pull down to cover the ears and is not meant to fully cover the ear. It varies from person to person but it should typically cover 1/2-2/3 of the ear.

Don't like it! This stylish wool cap keeps your head and ears warm. Purchased three for Christmas gifts.

I got this hat about a year ago making this my second winter with it and I love it! I'm outside almost everyday, despite the lovely Minnesota temperatures! This hat is warm enough even down to around 0°F. The short brim is perfect for winter and keeps the snow and wind out of my eyes unless the wind really picks up. At the end of the day, I love this hat and will continue to wear it every cold day until it wears out. I only give it 4 of 5 stars because the ear flaps could be a bit wider as they tend to creep up a bit uncovering my ears and if I'm walking into the wind, the wind comes in under the sides of the brim. -Alex B.

Just received my Stormy Mackinaw cap and I have to say, this is the first of my Stormy purchases that I am somewhat disappointed in. The workmanship has really gone down from my previous purchases. The panels don't even come close to lining up, and the stitching has changed from what is even shown in this photograph. The panels are now just laid over the top of the next panel and stitched flat, which makes an overall cheaper looking product. I don't know what in going on in Ironwood, but just know, your customers do see the change and it's not welcome.This will most likely be my last Stormy Kromer purchase, and that is really sad. An American company with the history such as Stormy Kromer SHOULD NOT be looking to cut corners at the expense of the customer. ~~~~ Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! The Original Cap Is made with the same quality and construction as was originally done by George “Stormy” Kromer himself back in 1903. We did make one change … an upgrade …We replaced the old cardboard brim with a molded plastic brim. This is the change that allowed us to put a lifetime guarantee on the cap! We stand behind our product- for a lifetime. We also have an insurance program, so if its ever lost or stolen you get a new one at half off plus the cost of shipping! The Top panels have never come to a point at the top of the hat. If you look at most 6 panel hats, they add that button to the top of the cap. This is to hide all the seams as they all meet up at one point. This has never been done on any of our caps. The seams on all the panels are done the same as years past as well. It has and continues to leave the raw edge showing. This is the rugged looks we are known for.I hope this helps explain, if not, I’d love to chat with you about this to ensure you are happy with your new hat.

The ear band leaves the lower tips of my ears uncovered, but it isn't a problem unless its real windy out. Otherwise this had is plenty warm, and the material/quality have been great over the last 2 years I've worn it.

I love the style of this little hat, but being that it is a Mackinaw cap, I thought the wool would be a bit thicker. I have a Mackinaw coat and it has a lot of heft to it and is windproof, but this the wind comes thorough a bit. I'm glad I didn't get the original SK as I can only imagine it would be even lighter.Also, when you bring the ear covers down, they don't cover your ear completely... I was really hoping that it would.Lastly, mine has a lot of lose threads that I am going to have to trim up before the hat unravels.

I love my SK. The Mackinaw is the only way to go imho. It's extremely warm, fits well, and makes you look like you're from the UP! I should know, as I grew up around the block from Jacquarts! Seriously though, it'll keep you warm and last forever...Don't worry about the price...that's a one time deal. -Jp17
