Review: Swimtastic Swim Cap

My Thoughts

Both of my kids are on swim team and I was more than happy to review this Swimtastic Hypoallergenic Silicone Swim Cap. I will also be sharing my review of a couple pairs of goggles made by Swimtastic as well, that each of my kids helped review. My son helped me to review this swim cap and it was his first swim cap of his own. I love this swim cap for my young son, who is on swim team. It stretches easily and holds it's shape. It doesn't stick together after taking it off, which can be a problem with some swim caps. My kids have not had allergies to any materials, so we weren't worried about reactions, but they do get eczema so I am happy that is hypoallergenic just in case. Seems to be made of a thick quality material and I anticipate this cap will last him a very long time. The price of $11.99 (at the time of this review post) is a great price for a swim cap that will last them the whole season and probably longer.

Before he started using this cap, he was using a hand-me-down swim cap from my daughter that was made of a different material and struggled with the cap sticking together. I didn't pay a whole lot for the cap, but I wanted him to make sure he would wear one and wanted to stick with swim team before I invested more money in a nicer one, like I upgraded her to. He is so happy with his swim cap and loves that it does pull at his hair, which also was a common problem with the other material.

With my kids swimming between 2-4 nights a week plus any swim meets they do, I have found that it does take a bit of trial and error to figure out what are quality products that will last the whole season or longer because honestly, who wants to spend more money on having to replace things. I would highly recommend this Swimtastic Allergy Free Silicone Swim Cap. My son picked out a Silver one, but they also sell it in pink, purple, black, blue and gray.

This would be great for my niece. She's on the swim and dive team and could use a new cap - thanks for sharing :)

I don't swim very often either. It's been a long time since I wore a swim cap.
