Charlie McLeod changing robe was one of the warmest robes we tried when getting out of the water on a single digit degree day with impressive gusts.
While a bit boxy looking, there is a drawstring on the inside which you can tighten to give the coat a waist. It is also packed with much-welcomed extra features like a hook on both the outside and the inside to hang it up, fitted, elasticated cuffs with thumb holes and for just £5 extra, you can give it the personal touch with your name embroidered on the front or back.
There are big tabs on the reversible zip that make it a breeze to get on and off and the lovely fleece lining helps to keep you dry no matter what the British weather throws at you. It’s also a pockets galore including a poacher’s pocket on the inside that has an additional metal ring inside (for keys perhaps?).
With each changing robe, you will get a free 40L Dry Bag which is entirely waterproof. The changing robe and your valuables will fit inside the bag which comes with shoulder straps and an air release valve to make everything as small as possible. This is great for towing behind swimmers, taking on your board or just packing everything away.
Each coat is made from approximately 110 recycled plastic bottles. The brand is an advocate of social responsibility and spot checks suppliers to ensure all are adhering to ethical standards.
