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.
The Gorilla Robes Care Guide
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.

I've recently started open water swimming and the hardest part for me was afterwards when the shivers start. The gorilla robe is amazing and has made it much more enjoyable, it's so warm and just what you need when you get out of the water.
4 perfect Cmass presents. One friend’s response “thank you for my my best ever present”. Another was so grateful with their present when they’d forgotten certain clothing so they didn’t suffer from hypothermia!! And I’m looking forward to getting one myself. The hot water bottle pouch is such a brilliant invention. Thank you, thanks & once again TQ. Jayne
Bought as a surprise Christmas present for my wife, she loved it and used it the very next day for the Charity Boxing Day Dip in our hometown, Llandudno. Picture uploaded on your Facebook page on the day! Excellent product and quality, good value for money, really can't fault it. Thanks Gorilla Robes.
As a dedicated all year round outdoor swimmer I really needed something to keep me warm after a dip. The Gorilla Robe is perfect for the job and I'm now wondering how I managed for so long without one. I got some great advice from Abbi who helped choose the right size for me. I normally buy large for clothing but for the Gorilla Robe she nudged me towards the medium and it's turned out to be a great fit for me. A great price too! Definitely recommend.
It’s for my husbands Christmas present so I cannot really comment. But delivery was super quick ordered and delivered the following day without paying for fast shipping. Thank you very much. Highly recommend
I've been walking the dog in all weathers. Staying warm and dry with fewer layers on. Looking forward to using my robe on the beach too
5* Quality and Customer service.
I bought this for changing on the beach in the winter.
Its perfect, I can wriggle around inside as much as I need to, its windproof and waterproof. The side zips are particularly useful and versatile and the zips move easily without needing a lot of help.
Highly recommended and don’t size up when buying.
I had my Gorilla robe last Christmas to use as a change robe when I wild swim. It is brilliant and is as just as good as when I had it. In fact my husband started to use it in bad weather for dog walks. So I got him one for Christmas. He has the green one, which is a lovely colour. But more importantly, it stands up to the brutal Welsh winters we have. He comes home warm and dry, and I have mine back just for swimming! Brilliant!
