Comfort is the main factor here as these caps are made from the same Lycra spandex as many swimsuits. While it aims to keep your hair in place, the porous material will not necessarily keep your hair dry.

    I have dreadlocks down past the middle of my back. I was looking for a way to swim without my swim cap constantly slipping off . This was it, though I wouldn't believe it when opened the package. It looked entirely too tiny to handle all my hair! In any event, I pull my hair into a quasi-bun, put this on (surprise, surprise, it actually fit!) and then put my silicone cap over it. Everything stays put and I can get through my entire swim session without fiddling with my cap! So happy I found this.

    Seam is smooth, size is good for normal head size, couldn't ask for me. This size makes much more sense compare to the Speedo lycra.

    This swim cap is exactly what I was looking for! It 100% fills my every swim cap need! Fits my large head comfortably without being tight. Does not pull my hair at all. Stays on during my entire lap swim. Covers my ears if I need/want it to. None of my hair comes out during my swim. Love Love Love this cap! It will not keep your hair dry but that makes no difference to me.

    I swim several times a week.  So I bought a few to switch off.  They are very comfy, do not pull out your hair.  And they last for a long time until they stretch out.

    I love this swim cap! If you think it's going to be too small, get it wet. It will stretch and go on much easier. This cap doesn't pull my long hair out like the other caps (silicone, etc) do. It won't keep your hair dry but it keeps it tucked up neatly out of your way while you swim laps or whatever. It stays in place nicely throughout my swim and covers all of my hair and my ears. It's comfortable to wear.

    I am an ocean swimmer, and the red color of this cap provides safety. You can be seen by others in the water and avoid collision. And lo and behold, if you need assistance the lifeguard or good samaritans can find you. Whatever the color or location of your swim, this cap is comfortable
    and protects your hair from the wear and tear of water running over it. This is not the cap for someone who wants to keep the hair dry.

    I have a big head so when I ordered by mail I wondered if it would fit.  It fits and doesn't ease itself off during my aqua aerobics class.  It stays on well and keeps my hair dry.  I thoroughly recommend this hat.

    The fit is good. Does not squeeze your head.

    This is the only brand I have tried so far that fits properly and doesn't ride up in front or back when swimming.



Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.

TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.

TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.

The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
