don't take to such nonsense.
98% of current RRers wouldn't even know what a Kromer is, the other 2% don't care. Nobody should worry what others think about what you wear. If it works for you, then go for it. Nobody will bust your balls for being warm on a cold night. If railroaders of the past wore them - there is a reason: it must have worked.
A railroader is only cold, wet, or hungry once. Then they learn.
