It's strange how things come to you when you're exercising and free as a bird in the high blue sky. I was riding my bike on a clear spring day last week when the mission statement for Coucon Outdoor came to me. The Coucon represents that feeling of reward after subjecting yourself to the extremes of any outdoor pursuit, from camping to caving, surfing to cycling, and the sense of satisfaction when it's all over

What music gets you ready for your open water experience? Brought to you Coucon Outdoor Changing Robes
I’ve been competing in Triathlon since 1984 (George Orwell eat your heart out!) and in all that time I have always got my game face on by listening to songs like Wolfmother by the The White Unicorn. You can hear it on this video where we’ve tipped the hat to this awesome tune. You can also get it on iTunes too.
Music has a positive effect in terms of enveloping me in a mental cocoon (Coucon in French - see!) where I can prepare myself for the task at hand. Our outdoor changing poncho ensures you are enveloped in a warm, cosy and water resistant outdoor robe - a huge benefit for an athlete physiologically and psychologically and one of the main reasons we are seeing huge interest in our product from the specialists in the field of open water swimming, surfing, SUP, kayaking ,Triathlon , fishing and Bushcraft.
Sergeant Fruitcake’s review of our product provides the many reasons that the Coucon Outdoor Robe is the outdoor specialists’ and enthusiasts’ choice as a wetsuit changing robe, changing robe for surfing or changing poncho in the arena today.
