The Original Stormy Kromer Cap

SKU: 50010
(242 reviews) Write a Review

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.



  • 23-25 oz. 85% wool/15% nylon
  • 23-25 oz. 100% wool (Blaze Orange)
  • 100% cotton flannel lining
  • Six-panel crown construction
  • Pulldown earband
  • Made in the USA with globally sourced materials
  • Dry clean only

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 just got my SK original cap today and put it on immediately after opening the box. I own the rancher version and is great for cold days, but the original is great for warmer days and for wearing indoors. Quality is outstanding as always as well as the comfort.

Got my hat for X-mas and love it. Wear it for hunting and serves a dual purpose of warmth and visibility. I have the original style. Very comfortable to wear.

I ordered this in the same size as a previous hat that fit perfectly. However, this one is much small even thought the tag says it's the same size. I forced it on thinking it might work into the right fit, but it never did. Check your size before taking the tags off. I can't return this one, and I can't wear it. If I do it will give me a head ache. Apparently quality control needs to be improved ~~ Sorry for the fit issue. Please call our customer service department and they will make it right - toll free 888-455-2253 ~~ SK ~~

I've owned three of these hats - love that they're made from wool in the U.S. And especially appreciative of the lifetime guarantee - they really stand behind their products!

Ok hat but the ear flaps don't really cover or keep my ears warm. Tried two different sizes neither worked well. ~~ Sorry to hear that. Just wanted to make sure you were using the earband correctly - you grab the earband on both sides at the bottom and pull down. No need to unfold or untie. If you have questions, feel free to contact our customer service department at 888.455.2253 ~~

Good Job, Eh! I am homesick and have been missing the U.P.. I ordered this hat for my birthday and as in the past the Stormy Kromer has delivered. I would happily recommend this hat to anyone interested in buying quality, american craftsmanship, and warmth for the winter. Not to mention looking good! The ear flaps will cover 3/4 of your ears but I promise that they do not get cold. Give it a try. And if you every loose it you can replace it for 50% off the website price. You got nothing to loose. Buy this hat!

Perfect winter hat! It fits my 7and7/8s head! Warm and stays put. There won't be anymore "chase my hat across the field" episodes as the flaps hold well and keep my ears warm when the wind howls. Even wet it keeps my head warm. Made 2 hours from my home. Doesn't get better than that.

This my first Stormy Kromer Cap but it will not be my last! I LOVE IT! I finally purchased one and I am a very happy customer! I plan on Starting a collection! I am a owner for LIFE! The Cap is very comfortable and warm!I just wish the ear flaps would cover the whole ear.I wear a size right in the middle not too tight and not too lose 7 5/8. Try one! You will LOVE it!

I purchased my waxed cotton Stormy about 3 years ago, tried and true, the ol Stormy keeps my head warm even in the coldest temperatures. No better cap out there! Looking to buy another one in plaid.Thank you Stormy for making a great product.

Just received my 3stormy kromer hats and in 2days from ordering from the website best of all free shipping to Pennsylvania .It was actually snowing and windy out so couldn't wait to go outside for a test of course I paraded around the house trying each hat on and curving the brims to suit my style and yeah looking at myself in the mirror trying to decide which one to wear first outside oh did I mention the fit was perfect anyway I chose to wear the original red pine and it performed flawlessly ear flaps pulled down easily and no squeezing or pinching and after more than an hour playing with dog not sweaty at all kept me warm and breathed well the other 2hats I purchased were the flat top Harris tweed which looks equally classy to wear for a night on the town as well as everyday use and finally the wax cotton with Harris tweed earflaps McLeod style . I can't wait for it to rain to wear the wax cotton . I haven't taken the original red pine off my head all day its that comfy . The stitching is flawless and can tell already that these hats will last a very very long time. Thank-you everyone at stormy kromer for taking pride in producing quality hats and clothes made in the U.S.A. I will be purchasing many more in the future
