The Booicore Outdoor Changing Towel Robe combines convenience and comfort whenever and wherever you want it. No more struggling to get changed without flashing your bits to the rest of the beach etc. These robes are designed to give you plenty of room to keep your modesty intact. Also known as a surf robe or surf poncho - you can use it for all your salty activities!

Made from 100% (350g) cotton towelling in the EU. Machine washable and built to last. 

One Size
Measurement from armpit to armpit: 85cm. 
Measurement from centre of the back of neck to hem: 108cm. 

We looked for the biggest and best quality towelling robes available. They had to be be built to last with great coverage and ethical manufacturing. We found Booicore.  Booicore was created by a windsurfer frustrated with the lack of quality changing towel options and his wife with a background in garment manufacturing. They create high quality, durable products with the user at the heart of the design. A much more sustainable and less polluting option than a micro-fibre towel which add to plastic pollution whenever washed. Another plastic pollution solution and we love them! Better for the environment and better for you. Which colour will you choose? Satanic Red or Gandalf Grey....?

Comes in a reusable cotton drawstring bag with Booicore sticker. 

Every purchase helps get more people into the sea. At Seabirds in Brighton we are keen sea swimmers ourselves. As a social enterprise we reinvest our profits into the community through local charity, Surf Solace. They use the sea for well being therapy tackling mental health issues faced by vulnerable young people. Salted well being.

Changing robe

I love this changing robe, so thick and warm. Great for when I come out of the sea.

Love it

I bought this changing robe for my first sea swim and it's great. Nice and roomy, great colour. So easy to put on after a swim and no worries about protecting your modesty. Washes and dries fine. I'm so glad I bought it, I am using it so much.

Julie - Seaford


Used my robe for the first time today and what a wonderful garment! I was warm and wearing it made all the difference when trying to get dry and changed into clothes. The pocket was great too to keep my mobile safe. I am looking forward using it throughout the year. Would recommend to all.

Came across these robes browsing and so glad I ordered one

Great choice of colours. Really luxurious feel. Feels very cosy on, good length and lots of room for changing. Love it!

Quick and cosy changing

I chose to get one of these robes after doing some research on different options - was pleased to find these at a decent price, in lots of lovely colours, and responsibly made. I've used my turquoise one plenty of times since and it's one of the best things I've bought since getting into outdoor swimming, for a quick and cosy dry and change right by the water! The bag that it comes with is also super handy. So pleased with it that I got my mum a navy one for Christmas for her sea swims. I'm just over 5 foot 6 and it's a great length for me. Thank you seabirds! x

Gorgeous, roomy and practical

I love my changing robe so much. It was a Christmas gift from my Dad.

There’s so much room to change and just the right size arm holes to keep everything covered up, no flashing here! The pocket is so useful too.

If you’re searching around for a changing robe and can’t decide - choose this one, it’s fab!

Received my beautiful turquoise robe yesterday. Had a practice with it and it's now washed, dried and ready in it's bag for my first aquafit session since the lockdown. We're not allowed in the changing rooms, have to arrive swim ready, so this is a brilliant alternative to driving home cold and wet. Can't wait to show it off.

Great quality and colour, makes easier and warmer changing on the beach. Excellent service.

Not only was the changing robe exactly what I was looking for... it was also hand-delivered the very next day in time for a birthday. Wonderful customer service and lovely products. Thank you!

Game changer;)

Game changing piece of kit. no more struggling with a towel, I can just throw this on over my head easily (good news when swimming in the sea in the winter!!!) dry off and get changed underneath. Dries quickly and easy to throw in washing machine

Laura Knight - Brighton

If you want to flash you can, but no need with this robe!

Struggle no more with the complicated dance of changing in a towel and trying to avoid flashing at the tourists (the locals are used to it)!

I love my towelling robe as it keeps me warm and soon dry whilst having plenty of room to change in. The sleeves are longer so no large slits in the side that one still inevitably flashes through, and it has a lovely large pocket at the front that you can stick your hot water bottle in if necessary.

I absolutely love my bright blue one and gave my Mum the amazing pink fuscia one as a gift, which she also loves.

I definitely recommend this as part of the swimmers kit.

Helen Hawken - Brighton

Brilliant towelling robe!

So delighted with this purchase. It keeps me really warm and all my bits out of view when changing on the beach. Washes well too.

Dave - Brighton

Great size thanks - a very welcome Birthday present :)

Alisa - Hove actually

I bought this snuggly robe for my mother in law who is a seabird elsewhere. She can’t recommend it highly enough. It is long so maintains her dignity while changing, and very warm so maintains her core temperature while getting changed after her swim. A great purchase!

Lucy - Brighton

This mu-mu (robe!) is so blooming warm and comfy, it's a struggle not to wear it at home all day. It's a great size and makes changing on the beach far more dignified. The towelling is really soft and is genuinely a pleasure to get into after a swim. It's the warm hug I need before I get the hot caffeine in me! Dogs definitely recommend to sea swimmers and those who love comfy lounge wear.

Christine - Brighton

So glad I got this - feeling less self-conscious getting changed has enabled me to swim more this summer. Great size and quality
