It isn't just tails and fins that allow fish and tadpoles to travel swiftly through the water; it also helps that they don't have any hair to weigh them down. Thanks to their bald bonces, fish are more aerodynamic in the water and it's this fact that inspired the very first Swimming Cap. Alas, this Osprey OSS Swimming Cap has some notable differences to many other examples. For a start, the Osprey Swimming Cap is made from silicone whereas many other caps are made out of Latex or Lycra. One of the benefits of wearing a silicone swim cap is that it doesn't get attacked by chlorine and so lasts longer. In addition, a silicone swimming cap is thicker than latex and Lycra caps so it tears less easily.
For those who have long hair, the silicone swimming caps act as a protective cover, reducing drag and allowing a smoother trajectory through the water. They're also thicker than other long hair swim caps and so keep the head warm when swimming in cold waters, such as the sea. The retro swimming caps are available in a variety of colours to appeal to both sexes, including sunshine yellow, pretty pink and brilliant blue. For those wondering how to protect hair when swimming, the Osprey OSS Swimming Cap offers the perfect style solution!
