30% of body heat during swimming is lost through the head, that's why you need this insulated swim cap from Barracuda Insulated Swim Cap.
Barracuda Swim cap
It helps keep me warmer in the pool. It is comfortable to wear. Easy to put on and take off. If the strap is undone, then it a little difficult to get it through the loop again. If you are wearing this cap be aware your hearing is greatly reduced. It is such an issue to me that I wear it with the strap undone so I can hear. I am in a water aerobic class and it is important to hear the instructor. It could also be a safety issue, so just be aware. It is well made. Heavier rubber material and a nylon inner lining.
Fit: Feels true to size

Great Swim Cap
I swim laps three times a week with this cap. I bought a large based on previous reviews. I think my head is normal-sized and I think the medium would fit a little better, but I am totally happy with the cap. It keeps my hair covered and my ears covered, although a little water seeps in. The strap works fine and keeps the cap on my head. I would definitely purchase this again. I wish it came in other colors.
XL swim cap
This is the only swim cap that actually fits my big head. It falls short however because the strap is strangely short and the velcro does fit through the slit on the other side-----very odd since this is an expensive specialty product. I would return it if I didn't need a cap that fits. I will have to buy some velcro and extend the strap. Wish me luck with that!Don't really understand why manufacturers can't make the strap appropriate to the size of the cap,

Scrap the Strap!
Quality materials and construction, but the design of the strap makes it too difficult to close. Had to return it for credit.
Barracuda Isulated Swim Cap
Enjoy using the cap for lap swimming. The strap works well, but had to have my wife snip the end into an angled point which makes inserting into the plastic buckle much easier.

Does help if you get cold swimming.
Great help if you get cold swimming. Strap is so short it is useless.

I bought the large based upon the sizing chart and felt like I could have used the medium. The cap is warm and does its job but I do not like the two seams that run down the front of the cap. Its much worse if you have to cover it with a neoprene race cap. I recently completed a 3 mile swim in 60 degree water and the cap kept me warm but I spent much of the 2nd half of the swim trying not to think about the pain caused by the seams on my forehead.
Fit: Feels too big
Fits huge head
I have a big head, and have problems finding swim caps that fit. I tried on most of the other similar items available at the local Tri shop but all too small. Pleasantly surprised that this Barracuda cap fits! I like the velcro adjustable chin strap feature but as someone else commented, it could be longer and allow for more adjustment. This is after the fact, but the person helping me at the Tri shop commented that insulated caps marketed for surfing and scuba aren't all that different in design so if finding one the right size is an issue, try looking into those as well.
too difficult to hook on the strap
It is very difficult to get the strap through the buckle, because the buckle is too small. After messing with it for 10 minutes or so I might have gotten it to work once.

The most weird thing I saw in my life. Awful! No use for it.
