Finding the right swim cap is pertinent to swimmers of all skill levels, whether it’s your very first time in the pool, or you have been swimming your entire life! A good cap really makes a difference in your training in the pool. There are so many different options that it can be a bit overwhelming, especially when it comes to the material that the cap is made from. Here are a few different options to help your search become a little less stressful!
This type of swimming cap is ideal if you swim in cold pools, lakes, rivers, or the ocean. It’s made out of the same material as wetsuits, which makes it ideal for cooler climates.
Neoprene swim caps are more suited for open-water swimmers and triathletes than for competition swimmers racing in heated pools. Another great benefit of the neoprene caps is that, like silicone caps, they do not pull your hair, which can be a problem faced by many swimmers using swim caps of other materials.
