Custom Latex Swimming Caps
Many events use latex caps as giveaways or one-time events. It used to be the most popular type of swim cap because it is very stretchy. However the super soft 30g swim cap is made of silicone. The latex swim cap is around the same price as the super soft 30g swim cap.
Caps made of latex are stretchy, so they fit most heads. Take care when wearing or removing, as latex swimming caps can “grab” long hair, and pulling your hair is uncomfortable.
In a warm environment, latex swim caps can increase a swimmer’s body temperature because they are non-porous.
Between the cap and the scalp, they trap a layer of warm water, which protects the swimmer from the cooling water in the pool. It is important to keep in mind that some swimmers have an allergic reaction to latex.
