What do you wear to keep warm? I feel it’s finally time to buy something nice. I’ve just worn generic winter hats all my life icefishing.
I've always wanted the Stormy Kromer hat, bummer to hear that they are not that warm.
Some of those hats will keep you warm, but they sure look funny. IMO.
I like a thick double knit ragg wool in any combination with that... A wind break, keeps you warn even when wet, confidence in it working 100%...
(Field tested at O'Hare 40hrs./wk. for over 20+ consecutive yrs. down to minus 65 F wind chill polar vortex)
for warmth and flexibility the bomber style was my Dad's choice... fold up the ear flaps if that's too warm... but don't get a cheap knock off, get a genuine... they have a sale on some models now
I agree, the Elmer Fudd cap is cool looking, and a classic, but not sold on the warmth...
don't really ice fish anymore, but when I did, a beanie cap and hoodie
some browsing help
I usually just wear a hooded sweatshirt. I've found it to be quite warm and it is easy to pull off when I get in the shack or if I get warm while on the ice.
I found they have a coupla different models of the Kromers.They have a heavy weight insulated and a lighter weight one.
The sports shop up in Boulder Jct. has a good selection of sizes and colors.
Thanks guys. The stormy Kromer does not look that warm to me. Do most have ear flaps? Seems like a loose fit with some air space around the ears.... Sorry for the questions. Just curious and trying to find something to keep me warm.
Got the carhartt, but love the Stormy Kromer.
Great little bait shop about 12 miles south of Lacrosse has the best prices and really nice owners too.
Brown carhartt winter hat been great from northern Minnesota to se Wisconsin during atv riding or watching tip downs still plenty warm or any hat with striker ice jacket hood.
