Outdoor Swimming Society said: "Great colours! Eye-popping bright purple and blue versions stand out from other changing robes.  The Sports Cloak has lots of handy pockets. One of the outside pockets is big enough to hold a small flask for a post-swim warm drink. The zip tug on the main front zipper and one of the outside pockets stood out from other changing robes zips as outstandingly easy to use when you have cold hands. The Sports Cloak is generously cut, which is good for getting changed under. It is lovely and warm and has a pull cord around the middle that can be used to minimise drafts should the need arise. The hood easily fits over a woolly hat, and works well at keeping in extra warmth and excluding draughts. Our tester liked the way Charlie McLeod robe looks too."

I LOVE my Charlie McLeod robe! It's been a game changer.

It's warm. Has so many pockets I'm still discovering new ones 6 months in. I can cycle in it. It's fleece lined with a fabric that doesn't seem to get soggy in the change process. And crucially it's beautifully practical for a nifty change on the beach. No more accidental flashing or wearing ridiculous floral dresses in January so I've a skirt to change under!

I was really torn whether to get a short sleeved or full length sleeve one. In the end I went for the short sleeves length and I'm so pleased I did - it's the perfect length for being able to slip your elbow in and out so you can get changed under the robe. Definitely wouldn't be possible for me will full length sleeves - I would end up just using it as a coat after I'd got changed which is not what I was after.

Thank you Salties!

Never swim without it!!

The best piece of kit I've purchased for open water swimming. Really adaptable item. Lay it out before you swim on the waterproof side, then as soon as you've got all your clothes back on you can get wrapped up in this. Fleecy lining pockets and hood help me warm up safely and stay cozy:) It's really well made, all the pockets and clever zips you'd expect from this brand. You'll only have to ever buy one they last for years. Also great to stay warm in the winter on the way to your swim.

Swim robe

Fabulous warm swimcoat that I couldn't swim without; warms me up quickly, an array of useful secret pockets for 'stuff', vibrant royal blue, less bulky than some, meaning I can cycle to the beach wearing it. Adore it!

Love my Charlie robe

Best bit of swim kit I’ve bought. So warm after a swim. I can get changed under it if it’s blowing a gale. If not I just wrap up in it once I’m dressed. Lots of useful pockets. The purple looks great. Also good for standing around a cold rugby pitch in winter!

Absolutely love my robe in purple. Great for getting changed in on the beach and keeping warm on colder days and longer swims. Super comfy and warm. Great communication and fast delivery from seabirds Ltd. 5 stars from me

Sam - Brighton

I got a sports robe for my birthday and love it so much. I use it after swimming in the sea, it is super warm and large enough for me to change under. I am so happy to have this as part of my kit heading into winter swims. Thank you Seabirds!

Bloody love my cosy robe! has completely taken the fear out of getting changed on the beach in the wind and by the time I halfway home I am (almost) warmed up. Hoorah! Deep pockets for warming hands and stashing keys and phone etc a bonus.
