    Depends on how cold the water is and how long you plan on being in there.



    I wouldn't bother personally unless i was swimming the channel.

    Agree with MOWF - swim cap should suffice or 2 if its cold or you want to lock on those goggles.

    Which Richard Stannard refers to in that video on 220 as, a [email protected] hat. I bought one last year for the SPW tri in Hyde park. Decided not to use it cos I looked so damn stupid. Boy did I regret it at just over 12 degrees in the pond!! If you feel the cold, use one.
