The Original Stormy Kromer® Cap

SKU: 50010
(332 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.

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 purchased the original Stormy Kromer hat in Ottawa after a recent visit to West Virginia to visit my father. He liked mine so much i had to buy one for his upcoming birthday. He called me the day it arrived and said he was wearing it to church that night.

After staring at Stormy Kromer hats online for years, I finally picked one up in a mountain shop in the Adirondacks - an Adirondack plaid, and on my 60th birthday to boot. I spend a lot of time outdoors and the winter means wool, wool, wool for me. I have a small, reliable collection of fine wool winter hats, but none with a bill, which comes in pretty handy in snow and rain if you have glasses like me. I'm just in from a two-hour dog walk: it's 20 degrees, with 20 mph wind gusting to 31 mph, according to the NWS. I must report that this is one fine hat! It stopped the wind and kept my bald noggin and ears toasty. Thanks for your continued commitment to U.S. manufacturing (it's worth every dime) and to making this beauty in the state of my birth. Next stop for me: a pair of SK chopper mittens, from The Mitten!

My gosh,who really "needs" another Original Stormy Kromer Cap once you have one... I mean, they come with an Insurance Policy, so why more than one? Well, the SK design team has done such a wonderful job in offer varying patterns and colors that I have found myself getting additional caps to go with other clothing I wear. Such is the case with the Red Pine Plaid I purchased which is great on it's one, but even nicer with the Mackinaw Coat. One again, the cap fits exactly as measured and the craftsmanship is uniquely perfect in own its own right.

Have five of these in different colors and places over a few years. Just right warmth for NY, and made and sold by great people! Next question??

I highly recommend this cap. It's warm, fits well and looks great. I have a lot of people commenting on how well it looks and where they can get one.
