Introducing the Sharkskin Rapid Dry! Crafted from a cutting-edge material, this swim cap is designed to redefine your water sports experience with its superior features and advanced technology.

Material: The Rapid Dry swim cap is made from a single-layer lightweight material infused and heat-set with a water repellent treatment (WRT). This unique method ensures unparalleled water shedding capabilities, making it highly effective and long-lasting compared to traditional treatments.

Insulation and Durability: The swim cap's specialized 3-D 'rib-knit' construction provides exceptional insulation properties, surpassing cotton and nylon/lycra materials. It retains warmth even when dry and outperforms standard weave garments when wet. Moreover, using a premium and highly durable thread type grants it 100% resistance to swimming pool chemicals and excellent resistance to the abrasive effects of salt micro-crystals formed as seawater dries out.

Performance and Breathability: Breathable and featuring excellent 'air permeability,' the Rapid Dry swim cap wicks moisture away from your skin to the outer layer of the material, helping disperse sweat efficiently. This makes it perfect for active water sports, such as paddle sports, sailing, and any activities where body temperature regulation is vital for optimal performance.

Sun Protection: Your safety is our priority! The Rapid Dry swim cap is rated UPF 50+ for protection from harmful UV rays. This is particularly crucial since most water sports take place outdoors, where the water can reflect and amplify the Sun's damaging effects.

    Love the rapid dry swim cap for protecting my hair from snagging in my dive mask. Adds a bit of extra warmth as well.

    Excellent, keep hair in place!

    Atfer struggling with hair getting caught in masks and straps, this was a game changer, not too heavy so works great on its own in warmer waters but can be layered with a hood in colder water as well.

    Fits well and stays in place.

    Shark 🦈 Skin Rapid Dry Swim Cap review

    Well I wasn’t sure when buying this cap. I’m not a fan of rubber or silicone swim caps and generally go without. But, I have to say what a nice piece of ocean swim kit, firm fitting and keeps the head relatively warm, stopping the loss of body heat. Glad I purchased this cap, definitely improves a winter swim 🏊🏼‍♂️ 👍
