Benefits of Swim Caps
Swim caps reduce drag for a more streamline swim and cover the scalp to keep the head warm or protected from UV rays. In other cases, caps simply keep hair neat and contained while swimming. Whether you're swimming for fitness, fun, or the finish line, our collection of swim caps leaves nothing to be desired. Check out our full selection of quality swim caps from top brands like Speedo, TYR, and Aqua Sphere - they perform like champs and work as hard as you do.
Silicone Swim Caps
Want to win the race? Silicone swim caps are the ideal competitive partner thanks to their unique durability and stretchable strength. They're less likely to rip than a latex version, and they stand up better to the affects of chlorine. Take care of your silicone cap and it will remain with you for an entire season - maybe more. Check out the latest silicone caps by Michael Phelps, designed by the legend himself.
Latex Swim Caps
If you go through caps quickly, browse our line of latex swim caps - the most economical models available. Far thinner than silicone, latex stretches easily over the head, making it a great choice for swimmers with large or uniquely-shaped heads. If you're working out in warm water, latex caps are ideal: your head stays protected and you won't overheat.
Rubber Swim Caps
For traditionalists, our selection of rubber caps harken to a simpler time. Soft, creped bubble style caps are perfect for water aerobics enthusiasts and recreational swimmers. These super-stretchy designs keep hair within their clutches without painful snagging. While no cap can guarantee 100% dry hair, a bubble cap comes close.
Need a cap that's not so harsh on the head? While many swim caps cause headaches with their unrelenting grip, caps made from pliable Lycra won't squish your brain - making your workout more enjoyable and less painful. Our selection of fabric caps won't snag or pull hair and last longer than natural rubber or latex models. Or, try a Lycra cap under your competition cap for a little extra cushion and reduced incidence of catching on hair.
Swimming in cold waters? Don a thick neoprene swim cap for better insulation and decreased risk of hypothermia through body temperature regulation. These wetsuit-like caps seal a thin layer of water against the head, allowing for a warming effect that lasts throughout your swim.
Styles for Everyone
Deck out the kid's for swim lessons in cute, one-of-a-kind swim caps for kids. Or, prepare your older ones for competition with a sleek junior-size swim cap. If you have more hair than you know what to do with, try a specially-designed long hair swim cap - made with extra space for your luscious locks.
Swim Cap Care
Keep your cap in prime condition with some simple swim cap care guidelines. AquaGear® recommends rinsing your cap in fresh water after each and every use to eliminate chemical buildup. Gently towel dry or prop the cap open to allow the inside to dry completely before storing it in a cool, dry place. If you find that your caps become "sticky", try sprinkling some baby or talcum powder on the inside of your cap prior to storing.
When your cap is about to meet its fate, try a creative recycling solution to keep it in use and out of a landfill.
