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

These caps are the best I’ve ever purchased.. By far I have received more compliments about the looks of the cap...
The fit is perfect and the construction of the hat is superb... Love it...

bought this for my husband and can for Christmas. I think he will love his as much as I do mine. Beautifully made and so very functional. High quality product.

I credit my original SK cap for keeping me alive when I fell through the ice during an ice fishing trip in February. The wool fabric kept my head warm while waiting 30 minutes for rescue. Now cleaned and still worn proudly. Flap up for above 20, flap down for below, it's a great product.

I have several of these hats. In fact Family members have worn them for generations. I have a picture of my Grandfather wearing one while hunting back in the 1940’s. A great product made in the USA. Now they offer it with embroidery. I purchased one for a Dear Friend for his 70th Birthday with his name and Birthdate on it. I know that he will pass it down to his Grandson someday. Thanks for doing such a great job with it.

Great Hat and Michigan Made in the USA!

Nothing beats an original for warmth and style in the fall. I have four of these and am always looking to add to my collection. If you've never worn one, just think of a kromer hat as a nice warm fitted glove for your head.

Just sent my new Kromer back for a refund. The fit and quality just isn't the same as my old Kromer that I still wear. I was going to order the Bergland hat in Adirondack plaid, but after sending the last hat back I'm very apprehensive to do so. I have even tried on the new Kromer hats at Cabela's and the just don't have the fit and finish of my old hat.
