This neon orange Zone3 neoprene swim cap offers great thermal protection and visibility when open water swimming. Made from 2.5mm Super-Stretch material. This cap provides warmth while maintaining good hydrodynamics through the water.
Zone3 have cleverly engineered the design of this neoprene swim cap focusing on the best fit possible. They have incorporated a Velcro strap which joins under the chin to cater for different head sizes. Zone3 have based the design on swimmer feedback. They found the biggest complaint from swimmers who use neoprene caps is that they can feel ‘tight’ under the chin and have no adjustability. This design, therefore, helps to alleviate this problem.
Surf Swim School Verdict:
We love the bright design of this neoprene swim cap! With 2.5mm of neoprene it is one of the thicker swim caps on the market with good thermal insulation. The fact that it is made from super-stretch neoprene means the fit is really nice with minimal movement when you’re swimming. Be sure to measure the circumference of your head accurately and order the correct size, this will ensure you get a snug fit and helps prevent water seeping in.
The chin strap is certainly one of the more comfortable that we have tried. The velcro fastening means you can micro-adjust the fit so it’s right for you. The ability to adjust the chin-strap is a helpful feature that will also help to minimise the risk of chaffing from the strap.
Overall, we really liked this cap! If you’re looking for a warmer cap for those cooler winter temperatures this Zone3 neoprene swim cap could be a great addition to your swim kit!
