The earth is 71 percent water. And here's the deal: all that water goes up and down, up and down. In other words, we live in a wet world, and while umbrellas work wonders, waxed cotton is the original repellant. Our customers wear this three-season cap year-round, from Zimbabwe to Maryland to Oregon's Columbia River. And from each locale: five stars.

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.

Great fit and quality. Will become my favorite duck hunting and wet weather cap. Nice to purchase products made in the midwest and the USA.

I got my Camo Wax Cap for Christmas. I was able to wear it the first time in March. It was raining in the woods for several hours then the cap dried while wearing it and fits perfect every time I put it on. I wear it spring, summer and fall. On cooler days when I'm working in the woods. I put dryer sheets in the ear bands and it keeps the bugs away from my face. But I still have to use my wool SK for winter.

Called customer service and they we're super easy and helpful to work with as I was ordering hats for groomsmen gifts. Not to mention the hats are awesome too.

Get a lot if compliments on my hat. Is practically an heirloom to leave with a loved one when I am gone

I used a tape measure and got the correct size. Fits like a glove and very comfortable.

I recently purchased a Waxed Cotton Cap in Dark Oak. It is the fourth Waxed Cotton Cap I have purchased from Stormy Kromer. I am an outdoorsman that is bald. As a result, keeping my head warm and dry is a top priority. The Quality and workmanship is incredible. I also own one in Blaze Orange, Field Tan and Black. I own many other "Kromers" in the Ranger and Original Cap series as well. My only concern is that the Waxed Cotton Cap has been discontinued in Black--I would purchase a second one in that color if I could. Otherwise I really love the Stormy Kromer Caps and plan on wearing them for years to come.
