Cap Sizing

To get your size, measure comfortably around your head where your cap will sit, with a tape measure. Take that number in inches, divide by 3.14 (pi) and round up to the nearest eighth. This is your cap size. See the chart for size conversions. You can also print out our hat sizer, click here.

Staying warm with your stormy kromer

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.

As an owner of an original SK cap I had high hopes for the Rancher Cap and was not disappointed. The size was spot on, and required only a slight adjustment. The hat is warm and the ear flaps are a definite plus. Well made and stylish to boot! Glad I added this to my SK to my wardrobe.

My husband was VERY pleased with the hat. Well made, soft and pliable fabric.

The hat is really nice and keeps my head warm and ears warm. Size fits true to my head. I'm glad you guys stock sizes for men that have big heads like me!

I have the Red, Olive, & Grey Rancher’s Cap and I’ve never found a better winter cap. My only complaint is that you don’t make a brown one and a blue one.

The Rancher Cap is the best cap ever. I'm living in France in the jura Mountains and the weather is inpredictable. This cap is perfect for to be dry and warm. I wore it when i went on the top of the Mont Blanc mountain at Chamonix, when i climbing with my split board before to snowboarding, and everyday. This hat became a part of me. As before, i hope to buy another one when it will possible with the international shipping. Or i could take a tour to see Ironwood ;) .

liked my black rancher cap so much I bought a blaze orange one for hunting season in Wisconsin. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a great warm cap.

I am really looking forward to wearing this during our West Michigan firearms deer hunting season! The staff I talked to in Ironwood helped me get the exact fit too! This Veteran appreciates the help and a great American made product!

I recently purchased a Rancher Style Stormy Kromer Cap in Charcoal. I have three additional "Rancher Style" Stormy Kromer Caps in the following colors: Red/Black Plaid, Black and Blaze Orange. I have other Stormy Kromer Caps in the Original Line, as well as, in the Waxed Cotton Line. As a bald outdoorsman, it is very important to me to keep my head warm and dry. Stormy Kromer Caps do this job very well and are built to a very high standard of quality and performance. I live in Michigan, where the weather is unpredictable and I basically have a "Kromer" on my head from the day after Labor Day until Mid-June. You cannot go wrong when purchasing a "Kromer".
