2015 Gift Guides: Baby It’s Cold Outside

When Old Man Winter brings his worst, Stormy Kromer has gear to keep you covered. Check out these great gift ideas for those brave souls for whom winter is their favorite season.

The Rancher Cap – $49.99

Rancher Cap

The Rancher is a seriously warm cap for seriously cold conditions – over four times warmer than the Original. We make it with our premium wool/nylon blend, then line it with 200 gram Thinsulate® to ramp up the heat. To that we add two extra inches of fleece-filled comfort on the earband, creating the mother of all head protection systems. In Red/Black Plaid (shown), Blaze, Black, Charcoal and Olive.

The Mackinaw Coat – $279.99-$299.99

Mackinaw Coat

Our ultra-durable, 26 oz., virgin-wool coat protects you from the elements while wrapping you in the warmth of over 100 years of hand-stitched heritage. In Olive (shown), Charcoal and Red/Black Plaid.

Tough Mitts – $59.99
Ida’s Mittens – $49.99

Men's and Women's Mitts

Our product development tried to prototype a new mitten with even more added warmth. Guess what they found out? There was much difference between the high-tech materials and nature’s finest – wool and goatskin. Time and time again, serious winter outdoors people tell us these are the warmest mittens they’ve ever owned. In two colors for the men; five for the ladies.

The Ironton Vest – $179.99

Ironton Vest

Okay, so it’s not as warm as the Mackinaw Coat – but – the Ironton is definitely our warmest vest. Made with a tough waxed cotton exterior, lined with soft polyester and filled with high loft fill, this quilted vest is great for those cold weather working days. Dark Tan shown; also available in Black.

Snow Diary: November 20, 2014

frontdoorCan you believe it’s a month before the first day of winter?

While we aren’t as buried as the folks over near Buffalo, New York, the western end of the Upper Peninsula as been fairly well hit with lake effect snow in the past 10 days.

It’s not even Thanksgiving and the local schools have had 2+ snow days. This morning, the temperature is in the single digits, and we’ve already had a few subzero overnight temps.

So while the calendar tells us Winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st, we know otherwise.

One of our factory buildings, a metal building with a fairly flat roof, needs its roof shoveled during the winter. Usually once, and usually around the first of the year.

Our crew is already out there today, snow scoops in hand, making sure are building and our employees are safe. Check out the photos below. We even had a little fun with a panoramic shot.

What’s the snow situation where you live?
