All Star Bubble Cap with Straps

The All Star Bubble Swim Cap with Strap is an updated version of a tried and true design. Harking back several decades, the swim cap’s retro design is a great fit for fitness, recreational, and even competitive swimmers.

Comfortable Design

The All Star Bubble Swim Cap soft material is covered with small dimples. These dimples, or ‘bubbles’ allow the cap to stretch and contour to the curves of the head. This results in a more comfortable, snag-free fit that can adapt to most head sizes. The creped material is designed to slip on easily and won’t pull hair, making it ideal for swimmers with sensitive scalps or long hair.

Crepe Bubble Swim Cap
The Crepe Bubble Cap utilizes tiny bubbles on the surface of the cap to allow flexibility and stretchiness unavailable in other materials.

The Bubble Cap is available in a wide range of colors and three different sizes –small, medium, and large –, which help swimmers, get an ultimate customized feel.

Solidly Constructed

Unlike other caps that might rip and tear, the All Star Bubble Cap is very solidly constructed. The unique three-piece design includes the pliable, dimpled material, a strong strap fastener, and an adjustable chinstrap. While the head material is strong, the grommeted strap fastener is anchored to the material and helps keep the chinstrap comfortably and securely in place. All three of these features combine to create a well-built cap that can easily withstand the tugging and pulling caps are constantly exposed to.

Helps Keep Hair Dry

While no cap is designed to keep hair 100% dry, the All Star Bubble Cap comes about as close as anything available. There are 3 small ridges on the underside of the cap. These ridges help seal out water and keep hair as dry as possible. In addition to the soft ridges, the chinstrap’s solid construction and placement helps further keep hair and even ears as dry as possible. And because the strap helps keep the cap on during rough starts and turns, you won’t have to worry about the cap slipping off and your hair getting soaked while swimming.

RhyneMaiden Bubble Caps recently made an appearance on the scene also. They look and feel exactly the same, and they may very well come out of the same factory.

  1. Hi, want to improve my swimming and get an all star bubble cap with chin strap. the reviews look great, but as someone with very long curly hair who lives in london, can’t find any local suppliers on UK websites. Please help, thanks

    1. Ann,

      I understand. As far as I know, the caps are only available in the US and Canada (but I could be wrong). But, this supplier will ship to the UK via First Class International (not too exorbitant).

  2. Thank you Adam for the link to the bubble cap. When looking at the cap alternatives to keep hair dry, I believe that you suggested a “two-cap” solution where you would buy a strapless cap and cut the crown out of the cap so that it would act as a head-band creating another level to keep hair dry. Could you suggest what cap would be good for this? Would you buy the cap size smaller for this or just buy the regular size you buy for swim caps? Thank you.

    1. Carolyn,

      Thanks for your question. The under-cap method really just provides a gripping surface for the bubble cap to seal against (since its smoother than the forehead/hair). For this, I’d recommend a latex cap of any kind. They are the cheapest you’ll find (usually a couple of dollars) and they do not come in sizes. This one would certainly be suitable for this purpose:


  3. Is there such a thing as a waterproof cap? I swim laps and want to keep my hair as dry as possible. Please advise. Thanks for the help!

    1. Good question, AC. I get this questions a lot. I’m sure you’re already aware that most swim caps are designed for hydrodynamics. However, there are a few models that do a better job at keeping hair dry. I often recommend the bubble caps by All Star and and RhyneMaiden because they have ridging on the underside that help seal against the skin and block water entry better. They are also sized, allowing you to achieve a better fit overall. While I have heard some great feedback about bubble caps, they’re not a 100% dry solution. Please let me know if you come across a cap that works like a charm for keeping hair dry!
