Product: Original Wool Cap With Earflaps

Brand: Stormy Kromer

January 18, 2018

Bottom Line

Classy and a solid $45 price point for a cap that will literally last a lifetime.

Field Notes

A few years ago my wife decided that all the men in her life (Dad, Grandpa and yours truly) needed the Original Stormy Kromer Cap. In my case, she was probably sick of me wearing a baseball cap everywhere (I cut/shave my hair/head once each year, and there are times I really do need to contain the mop).

The other two caps were for her Father, and her 93-year old Grandfather. I can speak for all three of us when I say that this cap is excellent-fitting, durable, warm, and VERY comfortable. Much more comfy than a baseball hat, especially during the colder months.

It's compatible and useful in many settings. Classy enough to wear out when I try to look my best, and at the same time it works great on sunny Utah ski tours or snowshoe outings with kids (drop flaps over ears for sun and wind protection).

Of course, I also wear it when I chop wood.

This is also a company that stands by their products, and wants to keep them in your hands. Register your Stormy Kromer cap for a no charge three-year insurance policy that will cover lost, stolen or destroyed caps (covers 50% of the cost of a new one).
