Fun, Alternative Swim Cap
The DK Douglas Wet Cap is a different kind of swim cap that can do a number of things for you while in the water. Unlike traditional caps made from rubber or silicone, the Wet Cap is made from soft, pliable Lycra blended with nylon. This ultra durable material is not only soft on the head, but is also a stretchy, strong fabric thatâ™s comfortable to wear. In fact, the blend makes the fabric resistant to wrinkles for an always great look. The DK Douglas cap does a great job at retaining body heat while in chilly water. And it can also keep both short and long hair under control during aquatic activities. Plus, the blended fabric design is able to help shield the head and delicate scalp skin from excessive sunlight to avoid UV exposure and potential sunburns. The Wet Cap is ideal for recreational swimming, snorkeling, aquatic aerobics, water-skiing, or any outdoor water-based activity.
Because this beanie-style aqua cap is made from such soft, pliable materials, the DK Douglas Wet Cap is a great, snag-free choice. Less pliable cap materials, such as rubber, can pull and snag at the sensitive hairs around the face and back of the neck. But the Lycra swim cap is able to provide scalp protection while remaining comfortable on the head and hair. The cap is simple to fit and wonâ™t snag when putting on or taking off. For years, divers and surfers have trusted in the DK Douglas swim hat to help keep their heads comfortable, heated, and protected while in the water. If you happen to swim in even chillier waters, you might need a cap thatâ™s able to provide a bit more insulation. The Barracuda Hot Head Neoprene Swim Cap is a great choice for open water, endurance, or even just recreational swimmers. It features a slightly thicker neoprene material to keep head and ears warm during an outdoor swim in any conditions.

The AquaGear Opinion
The DK Douglas Wet Cap was a welcomed addition to the AquaGear pool. Since testers spend a good deal of time in the water and in the sun, they cap helped keep their delicate scalps warm and protected. Testers thought that the swim hat would be a great alternative to silicone or rubber caps, especially for those who are not swimming competitively. Its comfortable design didnâ™t snag or pull hair in the slightest, and was extremely easy to put on. Swimmers thought the DK Douglas cap would be great for any kind of outdoor, water-based activity. It would also do a good job protecting your head even if when youâ™re not in the water and just sitting by the pool or on the beach. AquaGear testers thought it important to note that this cap does not take a traditional drag-reducing form, but actually fits fairly loosely on the head. This is not a competition swim cap.
