About Speedo
In 1914, Speedo was founded in Australia by Alexander MacRae, a 22-year-old Scottish immigrant who arrived in the country in 1910. The company began when MacRae Hosiery manufacturers, established by Alexander in 1914, extended the manufacture of underwear to swimwear and became MacRae Knitting Mills. A naming competition was held by the staff in 1928 and won by a Captain Parsonson, who coined the slogan, "Speed on in your Speedos." In 1929, the first swimsuits were in production and it didn’t take long for Speedo to successfully establish itself. World War II caused the brand turn over 90% of it’s manufacturing to war production, providing the armed services with vital equipment such as mosquito nets. After the war, Speedo opened a new factory and was able to re-establish itself, due to increased demand for swimsuits. In 1951, Speedo Knitting Mills (Holdings) Ltd, was incorporated and became a publicly traded company on the Sydney Stock exchange.

Speedo hit the international stage in earnest, at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, and a few years later the brand grew on a more global scale. Export sales to the USA began and an international division was set up to monitor trade in New Zealand, Japan and South Africa. The expansion of the brand continued, and in 1976, Speedo was appointed as the official swimwear for the 1976 Montreal Olympics, where 52 out of 54 countries wore their swimsuits.

Speedo continues to make its mark in the pool and on the beach today. Many world class athletes who wear Speedo include U.S. phenomenon Michael Phelps, legendary Australian swimmer Grant Hackett, world record holder Kosuke Kitajima from Japan, and Holland’s Inge de Bruijn.

Highly recommend these caps.

I'm a man with an average sized head and this cap is way too tight.

I'm on my 5th cap now I think. Silicone is great and lasts forever. Unlike rubber (which can snag hair) and latex (which some people are allergic to) silicone fits smoothly over wet hair, has a glossy finish so it looks great and doesn't lose elasticity. I have a some advice if you want to try this product that I've learned overt the years:

1. Always rinse and hang dry. I've left wet caps in my gym bag and after a month of two of neglect, it develops black spots. I don't know if it's mold, it doesn't wash off...and you'll have to buy a new cap if you don't like the spotted look.

2. Pull it on gently. I've ripped one when I was trying to stretch it over my head because my long nails cut right through it. It's not cloth so you have to be careful. This goes for latex and rubber, too.

3. Wet your hair first. If your hair is dry when you put it on, you will trap air under the cap. And since it's not a permeable material, the cap will start to come off while you swim because of the air trying to escape inside.

4. Pick a fun color.

That's it. Have a great swim!

I have used this cap almost daily for over a year. It still fits snugly and is very comfortable. Writing this review has made me think to order another one now, for the inevitable day my old one wears out.

I have a rather large head and found many caps didn't fit comfortably. This one is very elastic and is great.

UPDATE: 12-2011 Bought an extra but still on the first one, despite years of daily swimming. Impressive!

UPDATE: 8-2013 Finally ripped after over six years of daily use! Unbelievable.

I had trouble getting water in my ears before wearing this cap. Now no problem! It keeps my hair fairly dry, or at least drier than with other caps I've tried. It's easy to put on and take off--no hair pulling. It's lasted well so far. Much better than wearing a cap with a chin strap.

I swam competitively for most of my life, and this was the only cap that I enjoyed using. Latex caps snagged my hair and gave me allergic reactions. Cloth caps feel nice but they're not for competitive swimmers, as they slow you down. The silicone caps are a breeze to put on and even held my waist-length hair.

I learned to wet my hair completely with water (from shower) before putting on the swim cap from other reviewers. This method was great because it ensures the cap to stay fitted and not to slip off. I have long hair that reaches my mid-back, and this swim cap keeps them well-protected during swimming. (By the time I'm done swimming for an hour, my hair that was previously wet become partially dry!) Now I enjoy swimming almost daily without having to worry about the hair damage caused by swimming pool water.

I have gone through a number of laytex caps and they all had their issues. This silicone cap is great and has been problem free.

I bought this to replace the cap I've had since 15 years ago. I think they have improved the materials and design and it works really well. Also, I read somewhere that you should wet your hair and in the cap interior so that it keeps a good adhesion to your head while swimming. Otherwise, there are air bubbles that cause the cap to gradually slip off while swimming.

Got a big head? Skip this swim cap. Unless you'd like to make your wife laugh as loud as I did trying to stretch this thing onto my huge noggin' and watching it snap off my hands and back into shape...
