Charlie McLeod's Eco Long Sleeve Sports Cloak - Camo Orange
What is a Changing Robe?
A changing robe is the piece of essential wild swimming gear that has become synonymous with its rise in popularity over the last few years. For the uninitiated they are an oversized "cloak" with a set of sleeves.
This enables you to get changed pre and post swim, without the classic blush inducing towel-round-the-waist-beach-fumble, or indeed the timeless Mr Bean Y-fronts over the trousers shuffle.
Depending on the brand, they will either be a toweling robe or a shower proof exterior with a cosy interior.
Charlie McLeod's Eco Sports Cloak is produced from recycled PET plastic. The plastic is chipped to a fibre that is then transformed into a yarn and ultimately the fabric to produce the inner and outer elements of the Sports Cloak. Approximately 1100 recycled plastic bottles are used to produce one Eco Sports Cloak.
Rightly, as consumers, we are paying more attention to how our purchases are produced and to the footprint they leave behind. In recycling the PET plastic Charlie McLeod is taking a small step to clean our environment and finding a use for this otherwise unwanted material.
The Charlie McLeod Unisex Eco Sports Cloak offers a tough water-proof outer fabric, with a thick Sherpa fleece lining. nside the Change Robe are a number of zipped pockets including a mesh goggle pocket. Charlie McLeod branding can be found on the left breast and back. It's the small details that set the Eco Sports Cloak aside from the competition. We've added extra-long zip pulls for cold fingers and V vented side seams for ease of movement. Aprés-swim just got easy.
