New for 2013, the Speedo Aquatic Fitness Swim Cap is ideal for cardio swim sessions at the pool. Itís ultra comfortable design, paired with secure chinstrap, gives swimmers a solid fitting cap to wear lap after lap.
Form Fitting, Contoured Shape
Speedo took a retro cap design and put a new, fun twist on the style. The Aquatic Fitness Swim Cap may look like itís straight out of the 1950s, but one wear and youíll be delighted by its updated fit and secure performance. The swim cap is made from thick, heavy-duty latex to ensure long lasting durability. While the material is solid, the soft, contoured shape of the cap helps provide a comfortable, optimal fit. The cap features a textured pattern, which not only looks great, but also helps give the cap more form and give. Itís similar in design and purpose to the Water Gear Crepe Bubble Cap. This aerobics cap is covered with tiny bubbles that produce a more comfortable wear. The Crepe Cap is perfect for holding back long or thick hair, and its chinstrap ensures the cap wonít slip or tug while in the water.
Secure Chin Strap
In addition to the thick and form fitting latex material, Speedo incorporated a chinstrap into the swim capís design. Also made from durable latex, the adjustable chinstrap allows you to customize the fit of the cap each and every swim. Unlike other swim caps, the Aquatic Fitness Swim Cap covers the ears and can help keep water out of ear canals. Although no swim cap is designed to keep hair 100% dry, the extended sides and secure chinstrap also keep your locks as dry as possible while in the water.
Ideal for Fitness and Recreational Swimming
Because itís so comfortable to wear and easy to fit, the Aquatic Fitness Cap is perfect for both fitness and recreational use. Pick from either white or pink options and sport it at your local lap pool. Or give it a go during your next aqua cardio routine. No matter where you wear the cap, know that itís sure to give you a secure and worry-free fit. And for an even more comfortable wear, try pairing the Aquatic Fitness Swim Cap with a thin, insulating, and snag-free lycra cap. Lycra caps, like the Water Gear Lycra Swim Cap or the Aqua World Ultra Lycra Swim Cap, easily fit under traditional caps and help keep hair contained and free from painful snags and pulls.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool were excited to try out this unique swim cap. Before even donning the gear, swimmers really loved that Speedo put a new twist on a traditional, retro style. The stylish texture on the cap helped to give it a newer, more modern feel. And the ridges also helped keep hair drier than other traditional caps. The thicker, durable material was easy to fit and made for a secure, worry-free water workout.

If youíre looking for something more than just a simple, traditional swim cap, try out the Speedo Aquatic Fitness Swim Cap today. Its retro style is sure to impress, even in a cutting-edge world.
