Excellent for hair control

Delivery was prompt as usual with LP.


Most Liked Negative Review



The material, and construction is good. However I have thick medium length hair, and it would not stay on my head. It would tighten down, and then slip off. Perhaps making a larger size would fix this

good purchase


from San Pedro Town, Belize, BZ

It took some getting used to, but I'm sure has saved my scalp for getting burned on a few occasions already!. Stays in place and good construction. My dive buddy said I looked cool wearing it, and I need all the help I can get along those lines! Nice product.


Good product that was great for snorkeling

By Ian B.

I was looking for something to protect my head from the sun while snorkeling. It was perfect - comfortable, easy to adjust, exactly what I needed.


No Chilly Head

By Matthew S.

from San Antonio , TX, US

Stays on well with mask strap. Good to upper 50's. Blocks sun well. Only covers top of ears.


Love it!


Adds warmth and sun protection for a bald head :) Bright color helps boat spot you.


Keeps hair out of the way

By Anthony P.

from Holden, ME, US

I bought this to keep my hair out of the way when diving. The mask strap also stayed in place.


Scap for scuba diving


Perfect for scuba diving! Keeps you warm and controls my long hair from getting stuck in my mask.


Jaunty and comfortable


from Los Angeles, CA, US

This cap was a big hit with my companions on a whale-watching and snorkeling vacation in Tonga. It was a bit strange for me because I'm not used to being the person with the "hip" look. I like how it works too. It goes on easily; it's comfortable; it kept my hair out of my eyes and out of the way of my mask and snorkel - and it does have a jaunty look.




These Skull caps are great! They so so much more comfortable than those bennies with the strap! We just used them for 4 Days, 10 dives , in Florida as added jellyfish protection. They stay on great and are very comfortable! Everyone needs them in their gear bag !!


Best cap Ever

By Anthony B.

Best cap i have ever had. I love it. Great fabric. Stays where it is suppose to. Don't have to keep messing with. Keeps head warm. Absolutely awesome. Want to order more....


Nice Alternative


from Jacksonville, FL, US

I normally wear a Lavacore hood when I scuba dive but needed something to cover my head when I'm just snorkeling since wearing a hood isn't as practical or comfortable in that circumstance and frankly, just looks like overkill, even if you're in a full wetsuit. The SCAP worked great when I tried it out in choppy 2 foot seas at Looe Key Reef in the Florida Keys and it stayed on my head without problem when doing a giant stride off the snorkeling boat since the mask strap was over it. Like someone else said, I also like that it doesn't cover my ears completely so that I can hear better when talking to buddies on the surface which is a problem with a full hood on. The blue camo color happens to match my blue camo mask strap cover perfectly and it also looks great with my blue Atomic subframe mask. I'm looking forward to trying it out in place of my hood the next time I go diving and will be interested to see how warm it is in the 70 degree springs.


Helps tame my long hair

By Dawn P.

from Fort Worth, TX, US

I have struggled to find a way to tame my long hair with something that did not fall off or interfere with my mask seal. This did the job perfectly, I don't think I can ever dive again without it. I got the skull and crossbones one and I am easily recognizable underwater as well. My mask strap does not move around when I am diving (an issue I had with other caps/beanies I have tried) and this STAYS IN PLACE on my head. I balked at the price a little but it is worth it and if something ever happens to the one I have I will not hesitate to purchase again.


Nice Cap

By Amy B.

from Bristol, TN, US

I really liked this cap because of the feel. It is light and comfortable and does not cover my ears which is a big deal for me because I have a hard time clearing my ears while diving. I looks awesome too.


Great head protection for bald guys!


from Norcross, GA, US

Ordered this for my husband, who is bald, and he loves it. His head was always getting sunburnt just from before and after dives, but this is great protection. Also keeps his head warm, as it is like a little wetsuit for your head.

Exactly what I ordered at a reasonable price and arrived ahead of schedule.


SCAP Headwear

By klimkid

from 36106, AL, US

I found that the SCAP will stay in place while performing a giant step water entry. It adds a little bit of additional warmth in the 66° temps of the Florida springs as well. The red dive flag SCAP model is sort of a muted red color. I also ordered the brighter red Hilma Hooker model too. I plan to use this cap primarily for UV protection.

I have very long hair and it gets in the way of my mask fitting properly. It also gets very tangly post dives.
Tracy D on Jun 1, 2019
I had a scap before and really liked it. I had just lost it on a dive unfortunately, as I forgot to put my mask strap over it to keep it secure.
Trent S on May 2, 2019
My friend had this cap when we dove in LaPaz. It stayed on really well.

My wife has long thick hair and always fouls in her mask or equipment. this skull cap will hopefully alleviate the problem
philip D on Oct 11, 2018
I asked another diver about his Scap, and liked the idea of a head covering that would provide some insulation and protection without the bulk of a full hood.

Trying to keep my hair under control and out of the way. Mizu said it stays on well with the tie in the back - AND... it comes in great colors!
Janna G on Mar 17, 2015
These seemed to be more and more popular. I used to wear a Caribbean hood (kind of like a modified swim cap in neoprene) for a little warmth, or no cap at all. Photos of me in a Caribbean hood? Not good at all. :( This one is easy to put on, and provides just that bit of warmth in 80*F+ water. Once you put it on, tie the back in a square knot, and leave it that way for future dives.

will mask leak using this product?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I bought a skull cap for a week long diving trip to Bonaire. I did 12 dives and did not have a problem with my mask leaking. I can see where there might be a leaking issue if you put the top edge of the mask over the edge of the cap, but that is easy to avoid. I am very happy with the cap and saw quite a few other divers wearing them.
Will this stay on in heavy current?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I only used it in moderate current and it was fine. You will have to tie it on very tight. Sometimes I have to adjust mine in a water, but I also use heavy conditioner in my long hair, so it's really sleek and SCAP slights a bit on it, too. But I love it and use it every time I don't wear my hooded vest. Hope that helped.
If this is worn as a shower cap, then will it keep hair dry?
ChristineA868815382 on Jan 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it will not keep your hair dry. It is a light neoprene and allows water to flow through but adds additional warmth and helps to keep your hair in place.
