Outdoor Changing Robes - what's all the fuss about?

Posted by Catherine Morris on

We like to get wet all year round. Whether it’s an early morning surf, keeping warm on the touchline during training, or wild swimming in a stunning loch, we don’t want to be put off getting out there by cold or wet weather.

Towelling changing robes were originally thought up to help watersports fanatics get changed out of their wet gear, keeping their modesty intact and drying off in the process. But add a chilly wind, and perhaps a bit of rain and you’ll be looking for something else to protect you from the elements.

Waterproof changing robes such as our Pro Change Jacket take outdoor changing to the next level.

Drying off, getting warm, keeping dry as well as changing or even travelling home in your wet or dirty kit all becomes much more achievable and straightforward with a Pro Change Jacket. It will keep you covered in all weather conditions meaning you can keep it on for longer, and due to it’s features such as a water-resistant pocket you can use it as you would a regular waterproof outdoor jacket – apart from the fact it is even more practical.

A Beach Changing Robe that’s not just for the beach

Here are some of our favourite uses for the Pro Change Jacket:

Mountain Biking 

– perfect for keeping you warm and dry before and after hitting the trails as you set or pack up. If you get muddy you can wear it on the way home to protect your car seats.

Swimming 

– the beauty of a change jacket is that unlike a regular outdoor jacket, it is designed to be thrown on whilst you are wet. Wrap up as soon as you get out of the water and avoid that post swim chill setting in.

Outdoor Sports 

– with many outdoor sports such as athletics, rugby or soccer, there might be periods of waiting around in the cold. Avoid muscles getting cold & stay ready for your next session – it doesn’t matter if you are muddy or wet.

Walking the Dog  

 – if it’s raining hard, the pro change jacket is the perfect way of keeping even your legs dry as you head out with your four legged friend.

Outdoor Events

SUP & Surfing

– never put off by a bit of bad weather in search of the perfect wave, or a pristine paddle spot, you can throw your change jacket on over a wetsuit & it will keep you warm as you change.

Days at the Beach 

– Even on a sunny summer day, beach changing robes can be a brilliant accessory to have with you, it might mean you venture in to the sea a bit more, or stay that bit longer to make the most of the day. Extra points if you are camping out in order to explore a stunning location; a changing jacket will be your new best friend whether sitting out under the stars or walking back from a shower block.
