The Original With Leather Brim
View Gallery

There's a scene in Jack London's "To Build a Fire" where the protagonist spends his last match to start a small blaze that we, the reader, are supposed to recognize as his last hope for life. If the protagonist had simply worn a leather-brimmed Kromer to deflect the snowfall, he might have... well, you should read the story for yourselves. Like the original Kromer with a stylish, super-stout leather brim to divert sun or snow and get you safely home, regardless of circumstance.

Given to my son as a Christmas gift. It's now January 20th. I don't think he's taken it off yet! Perfect!

Look and fits great! I had a headache and bad breath when I put it on. My headache was gone instantly and and the barista at Starbucks asked me for my number!

Excellent fit and great around town winter hat. I have two hunting originals. One in old style camo and one in orange. I also have brimless in solid green for working outside in the winter. Needed something nice for everyday wear. This hat is stylish and goes with everything.

This has it very comfortable but still offers the known warmth. The Leather brim sets it off from the others!

I have seen the SKs around for a while, but never pulled the trigger. Received one as a gift for my 30th! It feels great, and I am for sure going to get a few more in different colors. Definitely a couple wax coated cotton ones for the summer. Many compliments all around when wearing it out and about. My head and more importantly my ears are warm even in the negative degrees lately. Being from the area; My next purchases will be directly from the factory, since now I just have to go for a tour.Thank you for making a product that I can stand behind, and confidently recommend to anyone. Being made in the USA is important to me. Made in the upper Midwest, much less the U.P. is over the top. Thanks again, my kids better bury me in this cap. -StoneArcher
