The Best Waterproof Change Robes

Pioneered by Dryrobe, the waterproof, fleece-lined change robe is a must-have beach accessory at the moment. With them being so popular though, it can make it tricky to get your hands on one. Luckily plenty of brands have created their own Dryrobe alternative, that offer the same warmth and protection, so you’re bound to find one which works for you.


Price: £140-£160

The original outdoor change robe, with a lightweight fleecy lining and waterproof outer shell. It comes with loads of useful pockets and packs down well for easy transportation.


Price: £139.95

This waterproof outdoor robe has a recycled PrimaLoft lining and is designed to fully protect you before and after cold-weather activities. This dryrobe alternative is packed with extra features to keep you super warm and comfy, including deep fleece-lined pockets, a drawstring hood, and a roomy fit for easy changing.


Price: £129.95

Northcore’s Beach Basha change robes are a little cheaper than a Dryrobe, and they offer a towelling lining as opposed to the soft, fleecy one on a Dryrobe. As an added bonus though, you can fully detach the towel lining from the waterproof outer, meaning in the warmer months it can be used like a normal towel poncho.


Price: £64.95- £129

Made from recycled plastic bottles, a Voited Poncho is both ethical and practical. This one has a water resistant outer shell with a quick-drying, absorbent microfibre fleece lining. It also packs down into a convenient travel pillow, making it perfect for campers.


Price: £72.95-£144.95

Another great option with a snug fleece lining and windproof outer layer. Available with long or short sleeves, this is a more affordable but super warm option that will keep you protected on windy beaches.

Red Paddle Co

Price: £129.95

Available with long or short sleeves, Red’s jacket includes a waterproof valuables chest pocket and stretch side pockets for unrestricted changing. It also packs down nicely into a 10L drybag for easy transportation.
