It took serious engineering to get the perfect hat compatible with hair styles that need space to cascade. The Millie Kromer - named for Stormy's niece Millie, who traveled by train to deliver materials between Kaukana and Milwaukee - gives your pony tail room to swish and sway while still providing pulldown earbands. Genius.
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 am so glad you guys started making pony tail holes in the back of your caps. It NEVER fails when I wear any Kromer, I inevitably get a compliment. They are well crafted and worth the price. Thanks for making a product that offers style and comfort!
Love this hat! Thanks for creating a hat you can wear a pony tail with. Very comfortable and high quality. Exactly what I have been looking for!
The Millie makes wearing a hat with long hair so much easier. Super comfortable.
This is my 3rd Kromer Cap and my favorite. The ponytail hole is great allowing me to keep my hair neatly out of the way while fitting comfortably on my head. It fits true to size measurements and as another reviewer mentioned, it fits quite well with medium fine hair. I used to swear by Wrap-around ear muffs or head bands but this really makes a difference in warmth covering all but the bottom of my ears. Perfect for winter activities and shoveling in these recent cold temperatures. I opted for the solid black as it goes with everything. Have been stopped in stores asking where I got my cute Cap. I would not hesitate to purchase again from Stormy Kromer and highly recommend this hat.
I was disappointed the material used to make the Millie I received for Christmas was thinner than my husband’s Stormy Kromer. As a rural carrier I realized it was thinner while working during the recent cold snap. My right ear was getting cold while delivering mail even though the ear flap was in place. This didn’t happen when I had borrowed my husband’s hat. I would have kept using his hat except I wished it had the opening for a pony tail.
Hi Kelly - we use the same weight wool for the Original Caps and Millie Caps (23-25 oz.). Was your husband's cap insulated? Please feel free to call us at 888-455-2253 to discuss further.
I got this because I my job requires me to go outside all day long. I already own a Petal Pusher, but I like to wear my hair up at work. The Mille fits the need perfectly! I can pull my thick hair through the opening easily and the "Kroner flaps" can still do their job. Since receiving it I have gotten many compliments on it. The material seems a little thinner but my head stays just as warm as in my other hat.
Love it! Fits great
I LOVE this hat! The fit is awesome and allows for my ponytail. And it does not get blown off my head in the wind!.
And shipping was super fast! I placed an order on black Friday and it was delivered Monday morning! You just can't beat that!!
I purchased this as a gift for my daughter, who has long thick hair. She loves it, but says it is a bit hard to get all her hair through the hole. This is her second Stormy Kromer.
Awesome cap, super cute, love it!
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.
