There's one I see advertised on TV that's called the Yooper Chook.

It can be worn in 3 different ways, depending on how much of your face you want to cover!

Stormy kromer is a well knimown yooper hat, but I'm guessing this wasbprobably a ball cap that said yooper. You rately see a yooper who will wear a lable. Those oak island boys are fro. The L.P. i do beleive. Like the Traverse city area

Hat look like this? Funny someone just gave it to me a couple days ago. No I won't be wearing it, even if I'm a former troll from below da bridge.  Does 21 yrs in da yoop make me a citizen?

You can only be born a yooper. No other way to become one.

Guess that makes me an illegal alien? Well 9 of my kids are yoopers and my grandparents where yoopers so I'm almost. Should be some kind of test to become official yooper. Wood chopping, panking snow, snow shoveling, mosquito swatting, polar dive in da big lake after Sauna etc
