At the National Watersports Festival, Dive Rutland used dryrobes for those participating in the try dives, a) to keep warm under b) get changed under and c) to just "hang out" in.
DRYROBE® were kind enough to donate those that we used and since then we have used on a number of occasions. The last serious use was in Pembrokeshire as part of our Junior Open Water dives... the students on exiting the water were wrapped up in the dry robes to get them warm. But unfortunately we were so focused on ensuring they got warm that no-one took any pictures of the three of them...
What is a DRYROBE®? well they are universally marketed as THE OUTDOOR CHANGE ROBE™ but they are much more than that.
The Dryrobe has a waterproof & windproof exterior shell fabric & a lining that dries you & keeps you warm. The design allows plenty of room to pull your arms in through the sleeves & get changed inside it. You can get a wetsuit, swimsuit or tri suit, on or off, easily, while staying warm, dry & fully protected from the elements.
Other features include, soft lined external pockets, large internal storage pocket & MP3 player pocket. Our Unique chunky YKK® Zip front is an essential element providing fast, easy exit & entry which allows you to get in & out of the dryrobe® while you have all your kit on. This is simply not practical with the more traditional 'pull over the head' poncho design.
Cold-weather conditions present unique challenges. Preserve your energy & core temperature with full-body protection from the elements. Leave it on over your clothing or wetsuit & re-use multiple times throughout the day without the dryrobe ever feeling wet or cold.
It's even machine washable, so you can keep it fresh too!
Dryrobe is all about warmth. Staying warm while changing, standing around waiting to compete or train. It’s about getting warm after being cold & staying warm and much much more.
So its uses are far and wide, here are a few of our suggestions.
Sports: Obviously surfing as that is where it all started then there is diving, kitesurfing, motocross, mountain biking, open water swimming, outdoor obstacle races, sailing, standup paddle boarding, surfing, surf lifesaving, triathlons, windsurfing
Camping - ever put a tent up in poor conditions? well next time wear your dryrobe®
Sideline support - whilst supporting your loved one playing the sport of their choice i.e. Rugby... how many times has it been rainy, cold or generally miserable but you are there... well wear a dryrobe® and you will be warm and dry.
Walking the dog
and much, much more. So whatever use you decide to put your dryrobe® to, it will keep you warm and dry and guess what we are your local stockist, so what are you waiting for - come and get one
