You know how in the middle of winter it suddenly becomes a lot more challenging to get motivated for a surf? In California, we’re sensitive once the temperature drops below 62-ish degrees Fahrenheit. Embarrassing, we know. But the rest of the world deals with real weather. Snow. Sleet. Freezing, sideways rain. In freezing weather, a little plush gear goes a long way.
Which is why we were pretty pumped to discover dryrobe. There are lots of changing robes out there, mostly simple terry cloth jobs. But few are as plush as the new dryrobe, which is essentially the beast of all change robes, designed to withstand devastatingly inclement winters in the UK and Ireland and beyond. Places, where you’re entering 40-degreeish water with a hood and the air, is at or below freezing. Places where warmth matters.
The shell is waterproof and windproof, and the heavy duty synthetic lambswool lining keeps you toasty. It feels substantial when you put it on. It’s not just a towel substitute. This item serves a very specific purpose, clearly designed for warmth. It’s available in both short and long sleeve versions starting at $149. With the cold of winter beginning to set in firmly, now would be the time to do some investigating.
