Trapping is Life Cap
Trappers appreciate tradition. What could be more traditional for outdoors people that red and black plaid. Wool coats in this color pattern (often called "buffalo" plaid) were the standard for deer hunters and other outdoors folks in the Lesser 48 for most of the twentieth century. We decided to take advantage of that history for our newest cap. Little did we know that we would also be in step with current fashion. Apparently, buffalo plaid has recently emerged as a popular color pattern in all variety of clothing. So, there we are again … ATA on the cutting edge of fashion. As for the message on the front … that doesn't need any explanation.

I Know Heimo
Heimo Korth is a legend amongst Alaskan trappers. Heimo has been living a (very) remote lifestyle for the past forty years. Heimo received ATA's Fabian Carey Trapper of the Year award in 2003, in recognition of his commitment and dedication to trapping. Heimo's sense of humor and engaging personality have won him friends near and far. Back in the 1980s, some of those friends created ball caps with the slogan "I Know Heimo," which brought smiles to the faces of many in the trapping community.
More recently, Heimo has become one of the featured cast members in the excellent reality TV show entitled "Last Alaskans." The program has brought widespread notoriety to our good friend Heimo. This seems like an appropriate time to resurrect the old slogan and share a smile with Heimo's new friends and admirers. Navy cap with tan suede bill. One size fits all.
