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.

This fine specimen of American made hat was delivered promptly just in time before the cold weather comes. I am ready for the crappy wet weather the NW is going to bring this winter. Love the way this fits my nugget and as usual the ear flaps are perfect. I always get asked where did I get it and what's the story? Well to no avail it always with me on the tag. Thanks SK for another great hat to my existing SK collection.

Of my four Stormey's, this is my new favorite. Fit, function, and it is good looking! Nothing else to say except GO GREEN!!!

Great hat. I bought the MI Tech colors (black and gold), and it is all I wear during the winter in the UP. My son has a gray SK, and I bought my father a blue and red SK bench warmer for Christmas (Patriots and Red Sox Colors). He loves it too. Again, great hats, and they make great gifts too.

It seems to me that this item would be better off if you could choose the colors of the material, trim, and laces. That would open it up to many more teams - not just the pro teams and college teams close to SK headquarters.

I love this hat. My wife got it for my birthday and it never comes off my head. Partly because I am going bald, but mostly because it is that warm and comfortable. Awesome hat and awesome colors thanks Stormy for a great hat I will have for the rest of my life. -Ben
