We bought this for our daughter for Christmas as a practical cover up during rowing sessions. She's not seen it yet, but I'm seriously impressed. The look and feel of the materials, the attention paid to practical details & the ability to fold it into its own carry bag, are all spot on.
I did my research and the Sea Monster was described as a game changer & I can see why!
Absolutely love this robe. FAR better than that big brand we all know about. Less bulky, can be worn as a coat without looking ridiculous. Cosy and stylish…never want to take it off!
Having read up about the sizing, both my husband and I went for the junior version. The arms are plenty long enough and the robe is roomy. As this robe is advertised as thinner than others I was pleasantly surprised at the thick, super warm lining. It is a bit of a fight to get the robe into its stuff bag - might I be doing something wrong? Ddipp answered my questions quickly and the robe arrived (overseas) in just a few days. Very happy with it 😀
Thanks Diana! The outer shell is indeed a bit lighter... but just as weatherproof! You are also correct, the stuffaway bag is less about technique and more about brute force! It packs down small but needs help to get there!
Thanks for the review... appreciate you taking the time.
Lovely light warm and waterproof. Lots of positive comments from others
Thanks Rachel! Good to hear it (and you) are getting noticed!
I originally bought a small adult but then downsized to a child and the fit is much better (I'm 5'3", size 6 and the adult one was just a bit too much material) but both are so lightweight, warm, completely waterproof and loads of pockets! I do early morning sea swims and it was below zero this week but I was toasty (with a hot water bottle in one of the inside pockets!) I gave the adult one to a friend of mine and she much prefers it to her Dry Robe (says it's lighter and cosier)
Any review which starts with 'Everyone with a DryRobe is jealous' is gonna get our attention!! .
We get that said a lot, and of course we would agree!
Thanks for taking the time for a review.
Wonderful Monster in petrol and perfect service, even to Sweden!!
Thanks Anette! Hope The Sea Minster looks after you in the Swedish winter!
Happy with the purchase! Game changer 👍 shipping fee is quite high to get it shipped to the US
I looked at lots of options and went for this one because it was the most waterproof and is lighter weight. I also love that it is made from recycled plastic. It is warm and waterproof and I love the colours.
Thanks Emily. I'm so pleased that your research took you to us, and you are happy with the result! Thank you for taking the time to review.
Met DDIPP at the Spirit of Christmas Trade show + was won over by their coat - For riding my bike in the rain in London (not post swimming Dri-Robe which is original design) & playground duty at school -LOVE it! Had loads comments around North London where we live.
-Got orange for safety + great shade!
-Love the design - lightweight, parker like shape + strong on sustainability!
-Cosy, warm + ultra-waterproof!
Small business - man and wife - lovely couple - enthusiastic, passionate and really care! Thanks for your hard work and efforts to make riding my bike in the rain more cosy and fashionable!
Thanks for the review Katy and glad you are happy with your orange Sea Monster! We remember meeting you too at Olympia, and delighted it is helping the rainy bike ride to school!
Nice to be called a lovely couple too...
What more can I say - it's so warm, stylish, lightweight, 100% weatherproof and even those with other makes of robes, are changing to a ddipp! I have lost count of the number of people asking where to get one. My outdoor fitness group clients absolutely love them. Don't hesitate - you won't regret it!
Great photo! Glad you like it. The Olive colour has absolutely flown out the door! I'll look out for you and your group next time we are in Brighton!
Thanks for taking time to review.
Love this robe. I ordered the olive green one but didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. I got in touch with ddipp and they changed it without any issues. The robe is so comfy, warm and soft……as well and having amazing colours! Highly recommend.
I love it. The colour with the orange fleece lining, which feels lovely ) is great . It’s very good quality with plenty of pockets and the one hidden to pack the jacket away. I’m only 5 ft tall so went for the junior size which fits just right. Intend using mostly for dog walking so I don’t want it to totally swamp me. Would still be able to change in it if used for water activities.
I've been thinking about getting a changing/beach robe for a while. After doing a lot of research I can across the ddipp Sea Monster. I'm so glad I did! This thing is amazing! Such great quality, really warm with loads of useful features. I LOVE it! I'm fact I hardly ever take it off! Totally recommend this company and this product.
Thanks Will! Glad you looked, glad you found us, glad you bought one and most of all glad you love it! Really appreciate you taking time to give feedback. Thanks, Mark
Originally ordered the junior but exchanged it for a s/m for the extra length. Love everything about this robe, the flexible outer material, the soft lining, pocket to pack it in, zip off sleeves and all made from recycled materials. Plus customer service was excellent, helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this company and products.
Thanks Lynda! Glad you found us helpful and friendly... must have got me on a good day! :-)
Customer service brilliant. Ordered a junior first time, but returned for a s/m as wanted it slightly longer. Love that it’s recycled and the feel of the robe. Outside material nice and flexible and inside beautifully soft. Plus extra features of zip off sleeves and pocket to pack it in. Really pleased with purchase.
Bought as a gift for my husband. Having originally ordered Large/extra large we did decide to return as way too big but our error as I didn’t check the sizing guide as he always has a large in clothing. However ddipp were extremely helpful and the exchange was done very quickly and smoothly. Very happy with the Sea Monster, it’s very warm after a cold dip this time of year, drys very quickly, lightweight and everything you’d expect. The built in carry pouch is an added bonus and the olive colour with orange logo is very striking. Would highly recommend both the sea monster and ddipp customer service.
Thank you so much for bothering to leave a review. So pleased you like the robe and we could sort you out with the correct size. You mad ea. good choice... the Olive is selling really well! Thanks for buying.
Light , compact in its own storage bag, fittings and features all work and well placed. Lining is beautiful and the contrast in lining and outer is bangin!!
Thanks Jerry... I agree the contrast is, indeed, bangin' !!
Ordered the grey/orange sea monster jacket as like the idea of removable arms and the lightweight packable design .
Will be using this for outdoor swimming and wanted something compact and lightweight as other dry robe style jackets are just too heavy . Wore last Saturday in 14c air temp and it was ok with just a t-shirt under. I like the lining which is very soft and snuggly on the skin . On the coldest of winter days I feel I will need to layer up to keep warm , but it is a lightweight jacket after all.
I'm 6-2 and usually a normal XL IN clothing, so I bought the L\XL I would say it's ok fit, just enough room to get changed under, but great fit as a jacket , length on me is just below knee.
Everyone at swimming loved the jacket and would definitely recommend it to others
Cheers and thanks for reading
Thanks for taking the time and thought to write a review. Very pleased to hear that you are happy with the robe so far. We designed it precisely to be lighter but warm so good it's working for you.
This might yet go up to a 5, but I've not really tested it in the rain much, nor have I washed it.
I don't do watersports, but I wanted a coat that would be lightweight, breathable, windproof, and warm as well as well designed (pockets, zips etc) and well made. So far, this coat seems to tick all the boxes. The fluffy lining is very snuggly,and the outer is surprisingly soft. I wanted something that enables me to sit on the beach in December- I think it will.
I wasn't too fussed about the aesthetics, but my coat has been admired on several occasions.
Thanks for the review and feel free to amend and comment once you've used it on those chilly December beach days!
Researched long and hard and yes, I could've gone with a well known brand. But this robe is lighter, packs away and arms can be zipped off for warmer dips. Perfect!
Love that they are a new company and I wish them lots of luck.
Kind words... pleased you are happy. We are new but it's gong in a good direction so far, thanks to customers like yourself!
Purchased so that I can go ready to swim at my local pool, as I like to come home and shower. Very happy and looks so much better than my current hooded towelling Dri-Robe.
Pleased you are happy with it, and thanks for taking the time for the review.
I love this coat. Standing on the touchline watching my grandson play football in all kinds of weather, I needed something waterproof and warm. The ddipp Sea Monster feels so soft, cosy, comfortable and not too heavy. I loved wearing it over jeans, teeshirt and jumper and the roomy feel to it is just perfect. The Petrol Blue colour with the splash of orange is 'cool' my granddaughter tells me.
Thanks for the review... and in our experience granddaughters are often correct!
Waited over year to buy my robe.
Did my research, decided on Ddipp straight away as it packed away, had an orange interior (the colour was very important), light weight and versatile.
Went to order, saw that they had upgraded an already well thought out robe to be more waterproof and hand pockets zips.
OMG ABSOLUTE PERFECTION.Be out in torrential rain, wild swimming, school run etc. I dont want to take it off, lots of people asking about it. So glad I waited a year so I got the upgraded robe with EVERYTHING I wanted and need.
As on the can
