This neoprene swim hat by Zone3 provides warmth while maintaining good hydrodynamics through the water.
Engineered by Zone3 to maximise comfort and warmth by incorporating 4mm Yamamoto neoprene and an adjustable chin strap. Available in 2 stylish colour options and a range of sizes to accommodate different head sizes and a more personalised fit.
Zone3 incorporated swimmer feedback during the design process and provided a velcro adjustable chin strap to alleviate any complaints of ‘tightness’ under the chin.
Surf Swim School Verdict:
Neoprene swim hats are an absolute necessity for some swimmers during the colder months so it’s important to find one that fits you well and is comfortable to wear.
Zone3 offer the most size options of the brands we stock and we find that they fit true to size so, it is worth measuring and ordering the size corresponding to your head circumference.
Chin strap or no chin strap? The main question for swimmers when looking for a neoprene swim hat! The chin strap will help the hat stay on your head during rough water swims or if you need to deal with any surf or heavy surface chop. Some swimmers don’t like swimming with a chin strap and you can find the strapless version of this hat here.
Zone3 have tried to make the chin strap as comfortable as possible and we really liked the velcro closure as it allowed for those micro-adjustments that can make all the difference to your enjoyment of the product!
