Water sports enthusiasts who like to stay longer in colder waters know how quickly the body temperature drops. However, we give off a lot of heat through the scalp, which is why many water sports enthusiasts opt for neoprene hoods. The so-called neoprene beanies are basically available in two different forms. Neoprene caps that only cover the upper part of the head and neoprene caps that cover the head, the forehead, the neck, the ears and the chin.

A neoprene beanie is ideal for swimmers, surfers, divers and other water sports enthusiasts because it offers effective protection against wind, cold and wetness.


The right neoprene beanie for divers, surfers and swimmers

Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that is mainly used in diving and surfing suits. This is mainly due to the fact that neoprene has many great properties that are advantageous for water sports enthusiasts. Neoprene is extremely close to the skin, is very elastic, water-resistant and acts as a kind of thermal insulation. Thus the material protects against hypothermia, but also against possible injuries.

Unfortunately, many surf suits do not have an integrated neoprene beanie, which is why most water sports enthusiasts have to buy these extra. For diving and surfing in cold water, neoprene hoods are used because they protect the entire head and neck area. Neoprene beanies are not only used in water, but also in boats, canoes and kayaks to protect neoprene caps that cover the head from wind, cold and splashing water. In winter, neoprene caps are also popular for jogging.


Neoprene - A versatile material

Neoprene beanies are available in various material thicknesses, fits and functional grades. Basically neoprene hoods are between 1-5mm thick. Divers who are looking for a suitable Neoprene Beanie should definitely make sure that the Neoprene Beanie is seamless with their diving suit.

Surfers, kitesurfers and other water sports enthusiasts should definitely pay attention to the seams of the neoprene beanie. These should be sewn very flat, otherwise chafe marks on the neck can occur.

You will hardly find a neoprene beanie that is equally suitable for surfing and fishing. So when you buy a neoprene beanie you should always know exactly what you need it for. This way you can find a neoprene beanie that's perfect for your application and will keep your head warm.

Three reasons why you should wear a neoprene beanie

1. Longer training times

Especially in spring or winter, cold water temperatures are often the reason why we have to shorten our training hours while surfing or swimming. With a neoprene cap or hood you can protect your head, ears, neck and even your neck from the cold and wind and spend more time in the water without freezing and shaking.

2. Higher visibility

Water sportsmen who swim in the open sea are many dangers oriented. Those who are afraid of being overlooked by boats, for example, should definitely consider a neoprene beanie. Neoprene hoods and caps are available in bright and gaudy colors, so you can't miss them in the water.

3. Better performance

In triathlons or other competitions, wetsuits are often mandatory, especially at low water temperatures, as the body can become hypothermic. Low water temperatures can cause numbness, pain and increased breathing or blood pressure. This can naturally affect performance and health. Neoprene beanies help the body to get used to cold water temperatures and protect it from cold and wind.

How to properly care for a neoprene beanie?

Neoprene is a flexible and elastic material that is easy to care for.
With these tips, your neoprene hat will stay durable and beautiful.

1. Rinse with water

After every dive, surf or swim training you should get used to rinsing the Neoprene Beanie with fresh water. A wide variety of chemicals and minerals can lead to a reduction in the quality of the neoprene beanie. With fresh water the Neoprene Beanie is easy to clean and keeps its soft surface, its pleasant and tight wearing comfort and its elasticity.

2. drying

You should not stow your neoprene cap wet or damp, but always let it air dry beforehand. It is best to hang up the hat and wait until it is completely dry. Neoprene beanies cannot be thrown into the dryer as they will lose their elasticity. The sun should also be avoided as the UV rays are bad for the neoprene.

3. Stow correctly

Don't let the neoprene cap hang in the sun for days on end, but always stow it in a closed bag with your remaining equipment.
