Plenty of room for changing in. Comes with a bag which can be used to stand on when getting changed. Very similar to a more expensive, better known brand of robe, just costs less.

Toasty cloak perfect for post scottish water swim. Been doing lots of sea swimming in training so great as i’m chittering after i get out the scottish waters. So can wrap my self in the cloak and take wet swim suit off very discreetly.

Best bit of kit for ocr, i would not be without mine now. Here are the specifications for the Charlie McLeod Sports Cloak:

  • FREE Matching drawstring shoulder bag with your Sports Cloak which doubles as a changing mat
  • Showerproof outer fabric and very warm absorbant sherpa fleece lining, with a large hood
  • 100% Polyester
  • Fastening: Zip
  • Loose fit allows for easy changing of wet garments whilst maintaining your modesty at all times
  • Super chunky looped zip pulls for easy use whilst your hands are cold and wet
  • Loads of pockets inside and out, for valuables, sunnies and wet garments

Open water swimming is cold this month so just what was needed.

But i really like it at the first glance. I have not tried it at the beach just yet, but i really like it at the first glance. Feels a bit big but maybe it will be fine when i will be changing. I love the color and the big pockets too and the bag is awesome.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Keeps you warm, excellent piece of technical kit
  • Sleeves too short for winter
  • Better lining than the dryrobe and more

Does just what it says on the box.

Very good vfm compared to another well known brand. . My wife purchased this as an alternative to a similar but more expensive item. She has used it several times for changing discretely both on the beach and after running events. The cloak is of good quality and she is very pleased with it.

One thought on “Charlie McLeod Sports Cloak : Super comfy and eminently practical!

    Sleeves too short for winter. This is a very nicely put together robe, but the sleeves are far too short for cold weather. Since i wanted a robe for winter i have returned it. I really thought the sleeves would be longer, only to my elbows and i have short arms.In the picture the sleeves appear to come to the model’s wrists, so i think i was mislead by the listing, hence only three stars for a very good product (notwithstanding the sleeve length).

      Better lining than the dryrobe and more. I’m 6ft male with 50″ chestit’s a little short when bending over to remove wet clothing, but is big enough. Better lining than the dryrobe and more pockets.

    Bought for running/ocr and it’s perfect. Bought for running/ocr and it’s perfect. The zip can be a bit hard to manage from the inside but that is the only issue with it in comparison the the dryrobe and it is significantly better value.

    This makes such a difference. I’ve carried on open water swimming through the winter and it’s a joy to get out of the water and into this. A friend paid more for a dryrobe and it is no better.

      A great coat for after any swimming session even leaving the pool on a frosty morning. Good value compared to the better known brand, bag really useful too. 5 and the small to medium fits me well with enough room to get changed underneath.

    Super comfy and eminently practical. I am on the short size so i decided to buy this product rather than the branded, week known black one as it would be practically at my ankles. I used it at the equinox24 event and it came in really really handy. Kept me toasty warm between events and that was my main reason for buying it. There is plenty of room inside to be able to change your clothes but i didn’t need to use it for that purpose. Looking forward to using it for other events. Might even have to take it to iceland with me when i do the 10k on nye. It comes with its own bag and that is both practical and helpful. Stops your feet getting cold/dirty.

        Keeps you warm, excellent piece of technical kit. I’ve just started cold water swimming. Being sensitive to the elements i’ve been enjoying the swim and dreading coming out and feeling the cold. No morei was surrounded by dryrobes and folk were kind enough to let me try them on. At 5’2″ & petite the adult size was so huge it wrapped around me half as much again, which meant it would be great for changing under but too drafty to provide warmth unless i hugged it against me. The kiddie size was just below the knees and great snugness but changing would have been a bit like a houdini escape act. It was also expensive enough to require perfection. In this period of ‘should i, shouldn’t i?’. Not so huge it completely buried me, with the bonus of a drawstring waist and hood to bring the fleece and warmth to hug your body and head. It even has poppers inside the sleeves to draw them in or allow room for changing. Being short it reaches my calves so i guess this size would work up to about 5’8″ to be knee length before considering the larger size. It has plentiful external and internal pockets in all the right places so you don’t need to think about an extra bag. Talking of bags, the drawstring one it comes in is big and hardy enough to be comfortably used as a changing mat.

    Ok having purchased two (a navy and purple) and left a positive review we have now actually used these for camping this summer and they were great for going to the showers or just sitting outside on chilly evenings in, which is exactly what we brought them for. As for quality, price, delivery they are excellent value for money, designed for out door sports well we like a few other people can recommend them for all campers ⛺️.
