IRONWOOD, Mich., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stormy Kromer is pleased to announce that they have been named the Official Lifestyle Apparel Sponsor of USA Ski Jumping and the Official Fashion Wear Supplier of Women's Ski Jumping USA.
Stormy Kromer is a division of Jacquart Fabric Products, located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the heart of ski jumping country and home of Copper Peak, the country's first ski flying jump.
"Stormy Kromer is very excited to support the U.S. Men's and Women's Ski Jumping Teams," said Bob Jacquart, CEO of Jacquart Fabric Products, makers of Stormy Kromer. "We are a proud American-made company set in a location with a rich ski jumping history and have been making a product that has already unofficially been part of the sport for decades."
As the Official Lifestyle Sponsor, Stormy Kromer will supply members of the Men's USA National Jumping squad with a variety of products, including their Original Stormy Kromer cap, Night-Timer Duffle Bag and Town Coat.
The company will be providing the members of the U.S. Women's Ski Jumping Team with items from the Ida Kromer line including the Petal Pusher cap, the Ida Cap with Hardware, and Ida's Walking Coat. In addition, $1 from every purchase of each of the Ida Kromer items listed above will go to Women's Ski Jumping USA, allowing anyone who wants to be a part of their historic Olympic debut, an opportunity to support some strong women while sporting some great gear.
Even with the rich history and relationship between ski jumping and Stormy Kromer, the company is in need of help hunting down historic photos of ski jumpers wearing Stormy Kromer caps. Fans willing to share old photos will be given a free Stormy Kromer cap in exchange for their effort, dependent upon verification that the cap in the image is an official Stormy Kromer. Limit one free cap per household. To send a photo:

The legend of Stormy Kromer began with a unique cap created in 1903 and was originally stitched by Ida Kromer, Stormy's wife. In 2001, Jacquart Fabric Products proudly became the Caretaker of the Legend, not only continuing to produce the iconic cap, but expanding the brand and product line to feature a wide variety of men's and women's clothing, outerwear and accessories to complement the popular caps. Today, the company continues to strive to provide classic yet contemporary products sewn with passion and practicality and still proudly made in the USA for more than a century.
