Swim Robes FAQ's
What is a swim robe?
A swim robe otherwise referred to as a changing robe or dryrobe, is a long waterproof or towel robe that is used to allow easy changing inside while providing warmth and protection from the elements. Designed to help draw water away from the skin to dry the body - a swimming robe is essential for any form of swimming. Waterproof robes feature a durable outer shell and warm internal lining which is ideal in colder climates - excellent for retaining heat before and after swims
For the winter and cold extreme weather, the more robust/heavier waterproof robe is the choice of swimmers whereas in summer months or warmer climates the lighter plain towel changing robe will be the go-to choice that is lighter in weight and ideal for drying
What's it for?
A swim robe has a huge range of uses and actives it can be used for. The main one being to change in and out of swimming gear pre /post swim, while retaining heat and drying wet skin - After all, it is a 'swim' Robe. Its full-length coverage is designed to provide extra heat and protect you from the rain if using a waterproof version. Long sleeve robes provide maximum protection and warmth by providing coverage for the whole body
It can also be used to put on over wet swim gear to travel home in or from place to place keeping you warm and dry without feeling overexposed.
In recent years people have been known to use swim robes more as long coats moving away from the term swim robe and becoming more synonymous as a dry robe, used more for more light actives and social events to stay warm and dry
How do I use one?
Changing robes are designed to be an oversized fit to allow maximum room inside for changing. You should have enough space inside to move your arms around freely and provide enough room to put on a wetsuit or change into clothes inside.
We recommend a quick towel dry before you put on your robe to help remove the majority of excess water. Swim robes should wick excess water away but to save your robe from absorbing it all we suggest a little towel dry before putting it on.
Either put your arms through the sleeves and zip up the robe from the outside or zip it up from the inside if it has reversible zips. Either change completely inside or dress your lower half then to make things easier to remove your arms from the sleeve, unzip the front and take the robe off your shoulder so it slides down to your waist to allow you to dress your top half
Wear the waterproof changing robe after activities to change in or use it wherever you want to stay warm and dry
What should I wear after swimming?
After being in any form of cold water we recommend you change into warm comfortable clothing that is easy to put on and may absorb any excess water that you missed when drying. We would recommend jogging bottoms and a long sleeve t-shirt with a hoodie.
Be sure to remove your wet swim stuff and then change into your dry clothing after a swim. You can also bring a hot water bottle to put inside your robe to help heat you up afterward
