We get in the sea almost every day. We have no changing rooms. We get changed on the beach, basically in public. Unless you are a blatant exhibitionist there comes a time when you would like to cover up and be able to get changed without flashing the passers by. There also comes a time, around November, when you need to get changed as fast possible with as little biting wind nipping your tender flesh as you struggle to pull up your pants!
We had a few towelling changing robes amongst us but were not satisfied with what we had. They were too small, prone to tearing at the splits on the side and worst of all , prone to boob flashing down the arm holes! No good at all. Others of us were using micro-fibre towels. Again no good at all as they shed plastic micro-fibres into the water when we wash them. So we wanted to find; big, natural fibre, great quality changing robesthat allowed us to change quickly and securely without flashing our bits to all and sundry. We looked for the best available on the market…
We found them with Booicore. A family business started by a couple who love extreme sports and knew first hand the outdoor changing struggle. Booicore make their robes in the EU. They have designed them to be roomier and longer than others on the market. They are long enough for even the tallest amongst us. They are wider and hang lower on the arms so no boob sightings. They are well made and wash well. Best of all they are really pretty and come in many bright colours so we can look like a gang of rainbow Jedi on the beach after a dip! What more could we want?
Booicore say “The Booicore changing towel is extremely durable, combining convenience, warmth and comfort. So, after a day mountain biking, surfing or swimming there is no more struggling with getting changed on the beach or in the car. Our towel is manufactured to give you plenty of room to keep your modesty intact.” and Seabirds totally agree. Which is why we are happy to sell them here.
