Established in 2012, dryrobe was founded by Gideon Bright, a UK-based surfer and designer. Inspired by a homemade changing robe his mum made him when he was a teenager, he created the dryrobe Advance - the original weatherproof changing robe. Designed to let you get changed anywhere, the dryrobe Advance protects you from the elements, keeping you warm and dry in any climate. All dryrobe products are made with recycled, high-performance fabrics that are built to last. Now a familiar sight on beaches and on the back of the elite athletes at sporting events all over the world, the dryrobe client list includes Red Bull, GoPro and Team GB. Sustainability has been at dryrobe’s core since their first changing robe was produced over a decade ago. By using durable fabrics, all their products are designed to last and therefore create less waste. Through buying better, dryrobe wants to help their customers think and live sustainably.
