The Original Changing Robe

Endlessly imitated,
Never matched

Its Wild out there

Be prepared to enjoy it!

A windswept beach. A secluded lakeshore. A river’s lush, green edge. Where the water meets the land and the earth meets the sky…

We believe that life – living - happens outside. And at Robie, our purpose is to help you treasure every second you get out there. We’re there to get you where you want to be: into the water, into the wild, into the vast outdoors. And afterwards, to help you keep hold of the feeling it gave you, for longer.

Don’t compromise your experience. Any of it. Enjoy that glorious moment of anticipation: the assault on your senses as you stand on the shoreline, psyching yourself up for that first invigorating blast of cold water. And afterwards, when your skin sings and your body aches from your adventures: keep hold of the glorious glow.

Endlessly imitated, never matched.

It’s hard to believe that before we created it, the changing robe didn’t exist. But we well remember the days when an ordinary beach towel was all we had to protect us (and our dignity) from the elements as we got into and out of the water. 

We found the solution. The Robie was the first ever combined robe and towel – and it revolutionised the beach experience and quickly became a staple piece of kit for water users around the globe.

But we didn’t stop there. We’ve never lost that spirit of innovation and we’re constantly checking, tweaking and perfecting our designs and materials; bringing new products to the market when we see water users’ needs evolve. 

So with a Robie in your board bag, backpack or car boot, you can be confident you’re facing the elements with the best that there is. And once you’ve got one, you’ll wonder why you ever made do without one.

Designed for adventures

There’s an adventure out there for everyone – and there’s a Robie designed for yours.  

Our designs are highly functional; tried and tested to keep you cosy and covered up whatever your adventure is - our range includes a variety of sizes and styles to suit the needs of all water users. And your Robie won’t let you down out there: all our products are crafted from the highest quality materials, from the 100% Turkish cotton on our Robie Original to the best recycled sheerling fleece on our Dry-Series.

So whether you’re 5 or 95; whether you’re battling the elements on an unforgiving Atlantic beach or a serene Scottish loch-side, or you’re just keeping toasty under the great, wide sky – there’s a Robie for you.

Embrace the elements with Robie: designed for your adventures in the wild and wonderful outdoors.

Made with a conscience

The natural world is our lifeblood, our passion and our business. We’re committed to doing everything that we can to protect it. Your Robie is produced with care and a conscience, using responsibly sourced materials. Our towelling products are made from the finest cotton and we use recycled materials wherever possible.

And unlike so many things in our throwaway world, the top-quality fabrication makes every Robie highly durable: they’re made to last a lifetime of pre-swim catch ups, post-surf campfires and outdoor adventures.

With a Robie, you can make the most of every precious moment you get out there - with a clear conscience.
