DHB SWIM CAP
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.
