In 1903 railroad engineer “Stormy” Kromer asked his wife to modify a baseball cap so it wouldn’t get whisked away when he leaned out into the wind. It was a hit with everyone on the Chicago & NorthWestern, and more than 100 years later it’s an American icon. The earflaps slide down for extra warmth.
Made in U.S.A. Recycled wool/nylon blend. Cotton lining. Available in sizes 7 1/4, 7 3/8, 7 1/2, 7 5/8.
This took me straight back to the railroad workers I saw in my little town where passing trains shook our house at night and the engineers would wave to us little kids at the crossing. I've given these hats to friends for deer hunting season so they are more visible and warm as well. The pull down ear cover is a great invention for keeping ears warm in the cold and windy north land. My husband will wear his black version when shoveling snow this winter. And I'll wear a red plaid one when I'm out photographing the holiday lights in the snow. And I feel good that it's made in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
