Red Paddle Outdoor Pro Changing Robe - Review

I have been using the Red Paddle Outdoor Pro Changing Robe for a couple of months and am very impressed with it's cosy and lightweight feel.

I was delighted to see the addition of waterproof changing robes to the Red Paddle range of SUP accessories. The first impression from looking at it was great! The outer material is water resistant, but doesn’t feel stiff like a rain coat and the inner lining is incredibly soft and very nice against the skin. All the things you would expect from it like and easy and robust zip and several pockets for your belongings are there.

With temperatures on the rise I love that this robe is lightweight and while keeping me warm doesn’t feel heavy.

The hood can be buttoned up which keeps it in place against the wind, that’s definitely a big plus out here in Sligo where I use it most. 

Overall I’m really happy with it, for next winter I hope they’ll release a long sleeved version to keep the elements at bay even more. Red Paddle Outdoor Pro Changing Robe Detail

I am using their medium size, it also comes in a large which would be roomier for someone bigger than me (I’m 5’4, 60kg).
