5 Reasons A Towelling Beach Robe Is A Summer Essential

Posted by Alex Clasper

Sunscreen and sunglasses might be the first things that come to mind when we think of “summer essentials”, but what about a towelling beach robe? Lightweight, portable and incredibly soft on skin, Red's towelling change robe is a must-have for anyone who loves to spend their summers at the beach or by the water. These are just a few of the reasons why:

Cover Up From The Sun

Red’s towelling beach robe can be used as a lightweight cover up to provide extra protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It’s particularly useful for throwing on as an after swimming robe, helping to keep skin covered as you dry off, before you can re-apply sunscreen once you’re dry. We all know how easy it is for your shoulders and neck to catch the sun, and so a towelling change robe provides that extra bit of coverage, without causing you to overheat in the hot weather.Our beach robes are available in kids sizes, perfect for family days out at the beach.

Perfect For The Beach…

The clue’s in the name, however the benefits of having a towelling beach robe to use on the beach can’t be overemphasised. Need to dry off quickly after a dip in the ocean?  Our beach robes are designed to absorb water in super quick time whilst remaining soft on skin. Need to change out of wet kit? The robe offers a spacious design, enabling you to change discreetly in public - no more awkward changing moments! It’s also perfect for throwing on if the temperature starts to drop in the evening, or if you want to give your skin a little break from the sun.

…And A Variety Of Water Sports Activities

Another reason our towelling beach robe is such a useful summer essential is its versatility. Our towelling change robe doesn’t just make the perfect after swimming robe, it’s ideal for drying off and changing after pretty much any water sport - It’s popular with paddle boarders, sailers, surfers and many more. The towelling beach robe is made using 430gsm premium 100% cotton which is soft on skin even when wet, whilst our microfibre changing robe is made from 200gsm suede microfibre that absorbs 4x its weight in water without losing its softness and delicate weight. 

Super Lightweight

When the weather’s scorching the last thing you want is a heavy changing robe weighing you down and making you sweat profusely! That’s why we’ve designed our beach robes to ensure they’re as lightweight as possible in design. We’ve achieved this by carefully selecting and testing the fabrics used to make our robes - suede microfibre and premium 100% cotton. Unlike some towel robes which get very heavy once they get wet, a Red Original towelling robe maintains its softness and lightweight nature, ensuring you don’t feel bogged down in the summer seasons. 

Easily Portable For Travel

Both the Microfibre and towelling beach robe fold down compactly making them easy to transport, wherever your travels take you over the summer. You can carry your beach robes in our dry bag which is 100% waterproof with a secure roll top closure - the bag comes with a detachable padded shoulder strap to ensure easy transportation.The microfibre changing robe comes with its very own matching stash bag.
