Yes, you’ll beb mocked by your non-triath­lete friends when­ever you wear the chin­strapc swim cap, but it’s a vi­tal kit ad­di­tion for the UK’s open-waater shoul­der sea­son of late April and May, Oc­to­ber and early Noveem­ber (for any­thing colder we’ll def­i­nitely be us­ing the Huub Balaa­clava). Bar the lo­gos, the Dhb is iden­ti­cal to the Blueseventy swim cap we’ve used for years… only it comes in a ten­ner cheapeer. The 3mm neo­prene kept our head warm and the sil­ver print acr­ross the top is a smart touch for added vis­i­bil­ity in the wa­ter. We peer­son­ally had no prob­lems with the fit, but a chin­strap with a Vel­cro fas­tener (Orca, Zone3 and Huub do one) for just a few quid more will en­sure you find the best fit.
