Designed to let you get changed anywhere, dryrobe® protects you from the elements, keeping you warm and dry in any climate.
Created by Gideon Bright – a UK based surfer with over 30 years experience in the water – the first ‘dryrobe’ was based on an idea Gideon’s mum had when he was a teenager. Surfing all year round, getting changed outside in the cold was not fun! She decided to design something to make getting changed outdoors more comfortable. This change robe was a huge cape with waterproof material on the outside, a towel lining and a hood – it became an essential piece of kit whenever Gideon went surfing.
Years later Gideon took the seed of this idea, set himself up in his garden shed and decided to make something better. After working on several designs and experimenting with different materials, Gideon developed a front zipping change robe that combined both a warm, advanced towel lining with a waterproof and windproof protective outer layer.
The dryrobe® Advance has received high praise since its launch and has become a familiar sight on both beaches and on the back of elite athletes from all over the world. It is now an essential companion not just for surfers but for paddleboarders, swimmers and all watersports enthusiasts. Virtually all outdoor sports have embraced the benefits of staying warm while changing outdoors, or just hanging about at events.
dryrobe® have also partnered with some of the world’s biggest brands and teams to supply them with kit; including Red Bull, GoPro and Team GB at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
