The Sports Room, Wicklow Town – stockists of dryrobes ® – the most advanced change robe in the world…
GET CHANGED, STAY WARM, GET OUTDOORS
If you spend time in the sea, you know how cold it can be afterwards. The exhilaration of the water has worn off and as the wind and rain howls around you all you want to do is get back into warm clothes as quickly as possible. The dryrobe ® is the warmest, most advanced change robe in the world. You can get changed inside it – allowing you to whip off that wet swimsuit or wetsuit as fast as you can. Then keep it on over your clothes while you warm up with a hot drink and think about how great you are for braving the elements.
Cold-weather conditions present unique challenges. Preserve your energy and core temperature with full-body protection from the elements. Leave it on over your clothing or wetsuit and re-use multiple times throughout the day without the dryrobe ever feeling wet or cold. Take a look at these divers – they realised when they were in Ireland that they needed a dryrobe! Brrrr…..
At The Sports Room, we can arrange for your dryrobe to be personalised with your name, club name or whatever takes your fancy. We can match the stitching to your dryrobe colour or choose any colour you like. Personalisation just takes a couple of days from order date. We stock both the dryrobe Advance Short Sleeve and the dryrobe Advance Long Sleeve. We also stock the towelling robes. Other products are available to order.
What’s so great about a dryrobe?
The dryrobe has a waterproof & windproof exterior fabric and a lining that dries you and keeps you warm. The design allows plenty of room to pull your arms in through the sleeves to get changed inside it. You can get a wetsuit, swim or tri kit, on or off, easily, while staying warm, dry and fully protected from the elements.
Other features include, soft lined external pockets, large internal storage pocket & MP3 player pocket. The unique chunky YKK® Zip front is an essential element providing fast, easy exit & entry.

Waterproof outer shell
