Water Sports Xtreme Robes

Why Changing Robes Are a Must Have for Water Sport Enthusiasts


If you are a water sports enthusiast, then you know how important it is to have the right gear. Whether you’re surfing, kayaking, or swimming, your equipment can completely change the entire experience elevating the activity into something more practical, safe, and most importantly, fun! Sport enthusiasts are quick to buy things like surf boards, swimsuits, goggles, etc, but a key piece of gear that doesn’t always get the respect it deserves is the massively versatile waterproof changing robe – a winning combination of towel and sports coat currently taking the world by storm. At Xtreme, we’re water sport lovers ourselves having seen the benefits of a changing robe first hand leading us to curate our own line of industry-leading robes.

What Are Changing Robes?

A changing robe, also referred to as a dry robe or a towelling robe, is a piece of outdoor attire designed to help keep sportspeople warm and dry while competing in unpleasant conditions. In appearance, they resemble a longer sports coat but are lined with a soft sherpa fleece that makes it effective at storing heat and drying skin. Changing robes also tend to be freely-fitted to allow for wearers to comfortably change without needing to take the coat off; perfect for beach or competition environments where they may be unable to pop indoors to get changed.

The Key Benefits:


Firstly, changing robes are incredibly versatile. Not only can you use them to change into your wetsuit or swimwear, but you can also use them to dry off and stay warm. Changing robes are designed to be lightweight and packable so that you can carry them easily in your bag, and they are incredibly comfortable due to the soft materials they are made from. This versatility has made them popular even outside of water sports with athletes in other sports such as Rugby and Football as well as more casual users enjoying the comfort of a changing robe.


Having been designed primarily for water sport aficionados, changing robes offer all the features someone might need when coming straight out of the water. Large hoods are perfect for keeping you warm and dry after a swim, while large pockets are great for storing valuables as well as any additional sport gear. Quick-dry lining is also a must and allows individuals to dry themselves off before heading back to the water again without having to worry about them becoming sodden and heavy.


If you are used to changing in public, then you know how important it is to have clothing that can maintain your modesty. Changing robes are designed to be roomy and allow you to change without having to worry about exposing yourself. We’ve seen a massive influx of people using changing robes for activities such as camping simply because of how effective they can be for maintaining an element of privacy when it may be challenging to do so otherwise.


No need to compromise on style with a Changing Robe – there are a plethora of colours and styles available ensuring a fit that is as snug as it is aesthetically pleasing. If you’re not completely sold on any of our products, why not customise your own? Adding logos or branding is easy and can align your look with a sports team, business, or just according to your own tastes. Visit our Robe Customisation page for more information on this.
