A waterproof dry changing robe is a fantastic piece of kit that enables us to warm up, stay dry and get changed before and after exercise.
Men's and Women's Changing robes are regularly used for stand up paddle boarding, surfing, triathlon, open water swimming and many more different sports. Our robes take a lot of abuse with wear and tear and it is therefore essential that we look after our waterproof changing robes so they last as long as possible.
We have put together a guide on how to wash and take care of your changing robe poncho. Please follow these simple steps to keep your changing robe in its best condition for longer.

To clean your waterproof changing robe
By washing your robe only when needed
and on a delicate wash as recommended you can reduce the amount of micro
plastics being released into our oceans. To further help reduce the release of
micro plastics from your washing machine we recommend using a guppy bag, cora
ball or other similar product. These help to catch the micro plastics in your
machine and reduce the amount that makes it down the drain with the wastewater.
Over half a million tonnes of
micro plastics enter our oceans every year from washing our clothes. Let’s do
what we can to help our environment!
To dry your waterproof changing robe
· Leave to hang dry inside out at room temperature or outside on a good drying day
· Do not dry clean
· Do not iron
· Do not tumble dry
· After being washed a few times you will find that the waterproof outer layer will become less water resistant. We suggest using a special DWR water repellent spray on the outer layers to protect and make sure that the water repellent properties are completely restored.

Really warm when you get out of cold water…… lots of room for changing.
Only thing is getting over your head when wet so consider front zipper if you prefer. But great robe.
Love it! It’s so warm! Perfect for after a swim, or even just sitting out in!
Sorry, had to return it and get small size my daughter received it in Wednesday, she is really happy with it and looks forward to using sometime this week, thank you for the quick return and getting the replacement so quickly, brilliant service, if asked will highly recommend this company, thank you once again.
I’ve now tested my robe in the rain and I am happy that I’ll be able to swim in the sea, whatever the weather is doing. I put my clothes in the pouch and when I got to the beach, folded the robe into my bag in such a way that none of the seams were uppermost and my towelling poncho was underneath. After a lovely swim in the rain, I put my towelling poncho on, followed by my robe, whipped off my swimsuit and patted myself dry. The pouch is practical for keeping things dry and getting dressed quickly. Partially opening the side zips to pull your trousers up is useful when you get the knack. It was easy to take off the damp poncho through the unzipped neck of the robe. Smug and snug.
Great servive from Gorilla Robes
Wore it yesterday and certainly makes changing on the beach much easier
Nice and warm and looks terrific
Really impressed with the customer service from Gorillarobes.com. The waterproof robe arrived quickly and is of great quality. I have had the opportunity to try it out in the field once now, and it certainly does the job. Very pleased!
Awesome quality and ease of use love how many pockets there and access zips. Well thought out and designed. My only issue i had to buy a toweling one as this would fry me alive in the summer 😅😅 so now have 2 one for cold days one for hot days
But very impressed 👏 👌
Ordered for my husband.
He loves it!
Big enough to change in.
Side opening zips to help him dry the old under carriage without being on display.
Really snug and warm for after a swim and considerably less expensive than the big brand option.
Delivered really quickly too!
I ordered this changing robe after what feels like hours and hours of research and reading customer reviews (always comparing each one to what I personally think are overpriced market leaders) and found the best one (in my opinion) from Gorilla Robes.
I ordered the largest size but was sent the size down and it is a perfect fit for me and I think if I received the largest one it would have just been too big - plenty of room inside the robe and not too long (often making it more difficult to change if it is!)
Highly recommended, the quality is great and it has already been used several times both by lakeside and beach and worked perfectly.
Thanks for a great product and I will happily recommend to anyone looking for an affordable changing robe that does what is should do.
