The Original Stormy Kromer Cap

SKU: 50010
(249 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

  • 100% cotton flannel lining
  • Six-panel crown construction
  • Pulldown earband
  • Made in the USA with globally sourced materials

It is my go to hat for late winter/early spring when I am on a horse all day. Just bought a Rancher for when the weather turns really foul

I bought this for our everyone in our family now has a Kromer. Favorite cap I own...and always appreciate the friendly people I talk to in Ironwood. Thanks

This is a well made hat, and a fantastic company. I called after I had already ordered my hat and was able to talk to a real person, she was pleasant and helpful. I wanted to size up and she said no problem, and made it happen. I do recommend getting next size up from normal hat size. I wear a 7 1/4, but ordered the 7 3/8 and it fit perfect. Hat is well made and comfortable, almost feels like it was custome made for me. I will be a return customer!

I have had several original caps through the years and there hasn’t been one I didn’t love. I spend many hours in the outdoors hunting and ice fishing and this is my goto hat when the temps drop.

Order a size up, their sizing is off for this style.

I have 2 of these and they are great. Quality craftsmanship and made is the USA. They are great for late fall and winter. Don't ever hit the ice without it

This one makes #5. Hands down these are the best hats in the north! Nothing like the quality workmanship and the warmth. Best part is there made in the USA.

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 ~~
