Excellent alternative to latex and silicone
I have a big head so this is a little tight on me in terms of the diameter of the cap going around my head. In terms of the length of the cap, and space for longer hair, there is decent room in this cap.Other reviewers have complained that their hair gets wet wearing this cap. That is true of virtually all swim caps. The purpose of a swim cap is to streamline your head as you glide through the water, not keep your hair from getting wet. There's nothing wrong or deficient with this cap. It is a cloth, nylon material, not an impermeable plastic. I prefer this as it doesn't pinch or pull my hair or skin when I put it on and take it off.

my new favorite swim cap
my new favorite swim cap, no headached, bunching, wears well.
Great for long or thick hair
I love this swim cap! I have thick long hair and have had trouble with swim caps staying on my head or getting a bubble at the top of my head. When you first pull out the swim cap it looks very small. Well it's not it stretches over your head and doesn't move while you swim. There is no pulling it back in place as you are swimming and no bubble on top. If your wanting to keep your hair dry this is not the cap you want. I haven't had it long so I''m not sure how long it will hold up. I''ve only used this for lap swimming in a pool.
I live i Southern FL and swim in a masters program early in the morning. It's never cold here! The pool has to be chilled to stay cool in the summer. Latex and silicone caps get very hot during a hard workout but this cap is cool! It keeps my goggles on and lets the water keep me comfortable.

Swim caps are usually a little too snug, but this one fits perfectly. If you have the same issue with most swim caps, then this is the cap for you! Good for people with a slightly larger head, or lots of long hair.
Great swim cap for certain needs
I'm a guy with short hair so I normally don't wear a cap but wanted to give it a try. Instead of going with a traditional cap, decided to go for this nylon one.It fits well (having a somewhat large head) and goes down far enough to cover my ears. Very comfortable, doesn't overheat and doesn't pull hair at all. That being said, this is not a cap that will keep water out since it's nylon, and I did not expect it to. Would imagine it would be good to wear underneath a latex/silicone cap for comfort though it may get hot.
So glad I got this cap! Fits comfortably with my long hair. It's nice not to have to worry about my cap eventually tearing as with the silicon or latex ones. I swim a mile four times a week and after about a half year the cap has stretched out. With the chlorine the color has faded. I don't know if it would have maintained it's shape and color longer if I had used one of those anti-chlorine washes after swimming--I'll have to try that next time. These caps are such great deals, price and value, that I'll buy more than one my next purchase.
Great swim cap
Very comfortable fitting cap, sturdier than others have had. Glad I got one.
Arena unisex swimcap
Worn a lot of swim caps in my day, and is this a good cap.
This is a great size to fit all my long hair under it and is so very comfortable. Doesn't slip but holds firmly and comfortably in place as I swim laps.
