  • 9/10/2016 I have not installed this on my snorkel yet.

    4 Review Stars By KenH1

    It fits perfect, as I explained in my Swim Snorkel review, I have an incredible fear of drowning, so restricting my air intake is likely not the best idea yet. As my confidence grows, I plan to use it to increase my lung power.
    I will surely give it 5 stars at that time.

    If you already got the snorkel, this will give a more added pleasure. Works your cardiovascular conditioning to another level. I enjoyed the challenge of gasping for air but was able to overcome it after prolonged use. Now it just sits on top of my snorkel, and I do not even know if I can remove it. Recommend this!!

  • 7/27/2010 you won't notice right away

    3 Review Stars By Andrew W.

    It was a bit wierd to put it on the snorkel but once I got it on it stays on even in my bag with all my other swimming stuff. You don't really notice a huge difference right away but once I got into a longer set I started wondering why it was harder to breath and didn't remember having it on until that moment

    4 Review Stars By Dzonkey

    Fits firmly over the top of the Finis swimmers snorkel, and closes off about 40% of the snorkel opening.  Works fine as I swim several miles per week for exercise and can use the added breathing exertion.

    This thing is killer! I have been swimming for years and always wondered what it felt like to have limited oxygen like training at altitude. I think this is great. I would recommend it to serious swimmers who are already fit and looking for that little edge.

  • 3/21/2014 Good but could be better

    3 Review Stars By Luke W.

    It took some serious work to install this onto my snorkel.  It didn't slide on as easily as I thought it would.

    Once it was on, it does provide decent resistance for your breathing but not a significant amount.  My first practice with it, I could feel my lungs working but didn't stress them to the point I would prefer.

  • 10/18/2010 FINIS high altitude/ cardio cap

    5 Review Stars By Rob

    I recently bought this to add to my FINIS snorkel.  If you train for running swimming tri's this set up is great it will train you to function at a higher level on less oxygen.  So when you are actually running in a tri or just for fun you preform better with an abundant amount of oxygen. I have noticed a lot of positives effects from using the snorkel and the cap has really helped my endurance all around


  • 11/24/2013 Increases V02 Max and Maximizes Performance.

    5 Review Stars By Trainfriend

    I'm a big boy and not an Olympic Athlete by any means @ 6"0", 315lbs. I swim 1.5-2 miles 6 days a week. I swim with a Polar FT80 Heart Rate Monitor. My average heart rate, without a Cardio Cap, went from about 133 BPM down to 115-117 BPM during regular prolonged lap swims. After installing the Cardio Cap on my Finis Snorkel, my heart rate went back up to 128-130 BPM indicating more load/stress due to decreased oxygen flow. After two weeks with the Cardio Cap I now routinely record 115-123 BPM during the same length/time lap swims. I can now swim faster, stronger laps without the use of a snorkel. My heart rate barely rises above 110 BPM and I've shaved almost 5 full seconds off my average lap times when swimming without the Cardio Cap. All of these factors indicate to me that the Cardio Cap has greatly improved my V02 Max and maximal performance in the pool. For a serious athlete training for a triathlon or swim team, I highly recommend this cap.

    4 Review Stars By Marissa

    Wow. When i first put this on my snorkel i was pretty much gasping for air after a 500. After about a weeks use though, it gets easier and does increase lung capacity. kind of hard to put on though. At lest it's not tape with holes poked in it anymore!
