    I have been swimming for fitness and weight loss for several months now. I have about 80 lbs yet to lose, but have gotten up to an hour of laps in the pool and at a good clip. One thing that bothers me is my hair. I don't have long hair, but even loose strands are a pain when you're swimming laps. I typically pull my below chin length hair back into a hair tie and then put on a cap.

    I tried the Speedo latex caps and they hurt because of hair pulling. They also did not stay on well.

    The Speedo silicon cap was better, but still tore out hair getting it on and it still let hair escape out the back, which somehow got into my swimsuit neck clasp and when I took a forward stroke, would tear the hair out strand by strand. OW! I frequently had to stop to tug the cap back into place at the forehead and push the air out of the top.

    I found this cap from Speedo in a nice purple Lycra. I tried it and it is wonderful. The water comes through, which cools my head as I am swimming, the coverage is wonderful and the cap stayed on with no tugging or pulling during laps. I did not have to readjust the cap once. My hair did not escape. This cap is Alcatraz.

    I am glad to be able to add this cap to my gear bag and donate my other caps to the thrift store.

    Great Item Shrinks So Should Offer XL!

    Love item under a cap however, item severely shrinks. Not offering this larger is a big mistake. Would not repurchase as it winds up too small to accommodate a decent amount of hair...Read complete review

    Love item under a cap however, item severely shrinks. Not offering this larger is a big mistake. Would not repurchase as it winds up too small to accommodate a decent amount of hair or a medium to large-sized head.

        Comments about SPEEDO Nylon/LYCRA® Blend Cap:

        I don't like wearing silicone caps so these are an alternative. I don't like them as much as the easy fit caps with inner cloth. The elastic on these caps tends to be a little too tight. However, these are just fine if you're wanting to just keep your hair in one place. I can see these being really good for those with long hair as long as you don.t mind your hair getting wet.

          I can keep my long hair in the cap without it slipping off. much easier to put on. could use a choice of different sizes, though.

              I buy one of these maybe once every 5 years... It lasts me THAT long... As I age, I am buying the "brighter" colored caps so that my husband can "find" me in the water when he is not wearing his glasses.

              I use it any time we go in the water - jumping off our boat in a lake, snorkeling in salt water, and just doing laps in the pool. (surprised I never loose it) I have long hair, and there is plenty of room to put it all up into the cap, does not pull out my hair... I also have put conditioner in my hair, and this over my head, and it does just fine while I swim.

                I use this cap for my water aerobics class, which meets five times a week. I like the fact that all of my hair neatly fits within the cap, without feeling like it's being torn out at the roots. Unlike others, the cap stays neatly in place during rigorous exercise. It is super easy to wash (when needed) and dries quickly.

                  I bought this for my 6 yr old daughter who disliked the hair pulling from silicone caps. This was super easy to put on and no hair loss. They do run small but it worked out perfect for us.

                        First let me say that if you are expecting to keep your hair dry with this, it won't work. And I knew that going in so I'm not complaining about it. I did not know what to expect but I really like this cap to keep my hair in place and out of my eyes while I am swimming laps. I found that if you get it wet before you put it on, it stretches a lot easier. All in all I am really happy with this product and will probably buy one in a different color soon.

                                  This swim cap said it would work with long hair. It is really small and definitely not large enough for long hair, so it had to be returned. Would be nice to have a large size in addition to One Size fits all.

                                    This swim cap fits well, and just like how i wanted it, however, the color faded in 6 months, it looks so old now that i no longer wear it anymore...

                                              Love item under a cap however, item severely shrinks. Not offering this larger is a big mistake. Would not repurchase as it winds up too small to accommodate a decent amount of hair or a medium to large-sized head.

                                              I am a professional swimmer for 30 years and this is the only cap I'd recommend! Whatever one wears when they swim, the hair gets wet! So you might as well wear the most comfortable, compact swim cap around! Plus, with the variety of colors available, you're sure to match one to your favorite swimsuit! Love it!

                                                My daughter loves wearing this swim cap to swim practice because it is very comfortable to wear. It is easy to pack in her swim bag and washes easily. It has last through many swim practices.

                                                  My daughter is on a swim team and has this cap in every color. Although your hair still gets wet, it keeps it contained and out of the way during competition. It is super stretchy and easy to put on and most importantly does NOT pull your hair.

                                                    being an elderly man and bald, i must cover my head at all times due to cancer. this cap is light weight and not as heavy as the latex caps and does not pull on the scalp.

                                                      the swim cap fits, but it does run on the small side. it's more comfortable than a plastic cap. it just runs snug. i purchased this cap to protect my scalp from the sun.

                                                        use: lap swimming
                                                        not so great: very tight elastic... I suppose it will stretch out as the clorine starts to work on it, but I have a really small head and it still feels tight. I don't remember seeing anything about these being for children before I ordered it.

                                                          Best for me is that I can fit all of my long hair into it with no trouble. Plus, it doesn't have that awful smell the others do.

                                                            I've been buying these caps for years, and I still love them. I swim 2-3 times a week, and they are comfortable and last a good six months.

                                                            • Was this a gift?:
