The Original Stormy Kromer® Cap
View Gallery

It’s possible a 4-panel hat constructed by hand, with love, for a larger-than-life character named Stormy Kromer could have been as iconic. We’ll never know. Ida stitched together 6-panels in 1903, and the rest is history. Rich, warm, wonderfully-fitted history. The original Stormy Kromer® cap lined in cotton flannel, in every color or pattern that matters, from “Partridge Plaid” to “Blaze Pink.” Few things age perfectly. This is one of them.

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.

I ordered this hat online all the way from Tasmania, the most southern state in Australia! What can i say? Great hat, fantastic costumer service and its true to size. Good work! And it arrived before i knew it!

Nice hat!

Awesome hat. Beautiful. Great craftsmanship. Followed sizing directions, still ordered an 1/8 inch bigger after seeing reviews saying they fit snug. Glad I did, fits perfectly.

Exactly what I expected! Great workmanship and a great fit. I look forward to many seasons of warmth and comfort

I have 6 (six). All are 5 stars except my navy which appears high on top. Otherwise all caps are true to size, fit, and top quality!
They are a three season cap that adjusts to temperature. For summer the waxed hat is, great.

This is one of three caps I recently purchased from the Stormy Kromer site. The other two are a canvas cap and a Michigan state emblem gray cap. I am very pleased with the quality and fit. I purchased this cap slightly larger than my other two so I would have a bit more room for my hearing aids when the ear flaps are down. A comfortable, well made addition to my hat wear. I feel these caps are a good way to spend a tax refund so that's what I did! The fact they are made in USA in Michigan's U.P. was a big selling point with this former Oakland County resident. I'm well-pleased.
