Smoc Smoc Eco Wild Swimming Full Zip Changing Robe - Midnight Navy and Saffron
Looking for a warm, snuggly changing robe which you can get changed in whilst protecting yourself from the elements after your wild swim, with the added bonus that it's eco friendly? Then the Smoc Smoc Eco Wild Swimming Full Zip changing robe is perfect!
Smoc Smoc are a small family business based in North Wales, they designed their robes with comfort, practicality and sustainability in mind. The robes are made in house in the UK and put to the test in the stunning Welsh wild swimming spots from craggy coastline to deserted beaches and the stunning Snowdonia National Park.
Here at The Wild Swim Store we are stoked to be the new stockists of their awesome robes! We love that they are organic, eco, waterproof, windproof with a bamboo towelling fabric instead of synthetic fleece.
Quality: Highest quality waterproof and windproof technical light weight fabric. Designed to keep you warm & dry after your outdoor sports adventures. Designed by smoc smoc. Made in the UK. The perfect Wild Swimming changing robe!
Eco-sustainable natural lining: Bamboo’s highly absorbent, powerfully insulating, soft, hypo-allergenic eco-friendly properties make it an ideal fabric & really set smoc smoc apart in quality. Smoc Smoc are proud to be ocean friendly.
Bamboo is a natural fibre which, if gets back into the water from your skin, will NOT add to the MICROWASTE problems in the oceans and lakes - unlike some other change robes which contain micro plastics in their synthetic fleece lining - which adds to this environmental problem. This bamboo lining will actually dry you – wicking the cold water away from your skin like a huge towel. This also helps to get you warm and cosy.
Technical features: A huge amount of research went into the features of the design of this changing robe. Large hood with pull cords, long sleeves, strong chunky reversible zipper, zipped internal pocket for keys/money and a big pocket for undies and tops to "hold" your clothes whilst you dry.

The bamboo lining is naturally antibacterial this means that bacteria and therefore nasty odours cannot survive in this environment. Because of this your smoc should not require washing more than twice a year.
The outer is waterproof coated and with any waterproof garment should not be washed regularly as detergent and the action in a washer reduces waterproof capabilities. If you do wash your smoc then this should be at a very low setting inside out.
Smoc Smoc recommend a quick cold shower down inside and out every now and again to remove any salt or sand.
Your smoc should be dried inside out after every use and wash.
Line drying or on a clothes horse next to a radiator is ideal.
Never tumble dry. It is important to thoroughly dry the inside of your smoc. It is like a big towel and could get musty if not dried in between uses. Using a toweling summer smoc underneath will allow for quicker drying and ease of washing.
Sorry! We will not accept any returns due to washing errors and reduced waterproof effectiveness.
Please check the sizing chart in the images. The sizes are BIG and based around getting dry and changed in your robe. If you simply want to wear it to keep warm after your activities then maybe choose a size smaller. The change area measurement is the width across the smoc. So you would have double this once inside your smoc. Smoc Smoc have specified Chest and Length measurements for use by ladies and gents, and have given an approximation based on women's clothes sizes.
