I suffer from the sea weed monster trying to kill me while swimming. Tucking hair under swimming goggles meant I had to strap them so hard to my head it was restricting blood flow to my brain. So, bought a cap to make things easier, two-quid from the pool shop. They had all sorts of colours but I'm not good enough to be different so went with white.

Feel like a right idiot with it but that's normal for me!

Get a material one, not sure what the exact material is, but much more comfy than the latex ones they use in races!

I only wear a swim cap when I swim with my club, as it's the norm. But swimming on my own I don't, just end up strangling myself with my masses of hair. Must get it cut. Always feel pressure to actually look like I know what I'm doing when I wear my cap.

I'd go for a silicone swim cap - warmer and much mor comfortable than latex

I dont have a prblem with my hair (a keep it very short) but wear a cap for races and open water swimming

Sue, after a season of tri, you will have more swimming caps than you can shake a stick at, as each race will give you one.

Not in the sprint tri's I've done, Big Bopper --won't let you out of the lane let alone pool before giving it back Shocked poss. with open water races Question

I dont know that caps in a pool make you look that you know what you are doing Confused -in my pool they are the older folk who wear them Exclamation

But I worked out this morning that I never recognise people out of the pool -we must all look "different"

this is true.... eyes & hair don't work for recognising people in the pool..
