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.
