    My missus has a couple. I will add they are only used when cold water swimming in the sea/pools. You can get changed under them, Nice and long. Not used for anywhere else !

    You can get changed under them,

    That is their reason for existence isn’t it? Not trips to Tesco or walking the dog. BTW are they actually waterproof, i.e. do they keep water OUT?

    I never knew they were a thing until recently, saw my first one in the wild today, on the tube on a gloriously sunny day in London..

    Ooops. I have the crocs too – camo ones with the fat soles. I’m not sure I’m brave enough to wear them to the shops together with my dryrobe though.

    GLC are brilliant.

    They were rampant at the kids rugby in Barnard Castle on Sunday.

    Those coats that look like 1980’s sleeping bags with the bottom cut out look terrible too. I’d rather be cold than look like an utter ****.

    I saw this at our local rugby club.

    Nobody in the right mind buys a COAT for a furry dog. These middle-class loons buy themselves a lifestyle accessory for their dogs to wear. It is a bizarre thing.

    Is that a poodle? If so, they have no undercoat so are one of the few dogs that can benefit from a jacket. God, I hate myself for typing that

    That’s some kind of mongrelpoo. It was actually a spaniel I saw.

    Or you could buy a German Army convertible sleeping bag/jacket and kill two birds with one stone.

    I’ve had one for about 10 years, as long as I’ve been cold water swimming, it was a very generous present from a friend when they were niche and had hardly been heard of.

    I can’t for the life of me think why you’d wear one apart from after swimming, it’s utterly shapeless and lacking any style whatsoever.
    If you want a warm coat, there are so many better choices that aren’t a dry robe.

    I am now vaguely mortified if I need to go into a shop post swim these days. I tend to swim in the river behind Waitrose in the town where I live and had to talk myself into keeping mine on recently as I was cold, and decided taking it off because of a weird trend/anti trend was daft. It’ll all get forgotten about soon… just please stop talking about them 😆

    I got a Dryrobe (Nucleur Races SE 😛 )

    Blooming love it for the kids sporting sideline. Paired with rigger boots and with a flask of coffee in the poacher’s pocket…..  I’m impenetrable to all weathers.

    As for padded coats…. don’t they have to be worn with tight track pants tucked into socks and your initials on the chest ?

    A very useful warm and waterproof coat.

    Too warm for a decent length walk, though, so it just shows that the dogwalkers who wear them have driven their dogs to the walk, will have the shortest poo-vacuation possible and then back in the car to drive home. It’s literally admitting that your dog isn’t getting a decent walk. 😀

    FFS are we back on Dryrobes again? I honestly thought everything to be written about them already had. 😂

    A bunch of those look like the equestrian equivalent if I’m not mistaken. Seen a few of those round my way. It’s good because now I know who to blame for wrecking the trails.

    seeing as the other thread has been unnecessarily closed should we post our ‘other songs that sum up Britain today’ here now?

    I’m a middle aged, overweight balding bloke. I like the idea of a Dryrobe entirely because people might be tricked into thinking its the Dryrobe that is shapeless and lacks style!

    We have a dryrobe copy for my son, it’s great for keeping him warm post cx race and allow him to get changed under.

    He doesn’t wear out though as he says its too hot, plus its massive.

    Not seen a Dryrobe with an Oodie underneath yet, that would be the ultimate…

    I am not ashamed to say I have two Dryrobes and they are great bits of kit.  I camped in my van on Monday night.  Got out of bed Tuesday morning, popped the Dryrobe on whilst making a cuppa then sat on the step of the van wrapped up warm watching the sunrise.  Perfect.

    The latest fashion craze I’ve witnessed is people wearing very long padded gilets, no sleeves. I just don’t get it.
