It’s February, and I’ve just finished my one lap of the Polar Bear Challenge at Shale Hill, and it’s f’in freezing.
It’s October, and I’m at OCR World Championships. It’s 7:30am, and I’ve shown up early to see the elite team competition on the Sunday. I didn’t bring too much warm clothing.
And it’s f’in freezing.
At Polar Bear, Margaret of Dirt in your Skirt puts on a dryrobe, and it’s the first time I’ve ever seen one in real world use.
At OCR World Championships, the Europeans have been walking around in their dryrobes all weekend, and at 7:30am, when it’s 30some degrees, I really *really* want one.
I’ve been talking to dryrobe North America. They’re expanding – after years on the EU scene, with fell running, surfing, swimming and other outdoor sports backgrounds – they’re now getting into OCR. We’re seriously behind the ball, here in the US – they’ve been all over the UK scene for a few years now, and even big brands like Tough Mudder are in on the dryrobe game.
So – we’re please to offer them up to the New England Spahtens – and at a fantastic 20% off retail. Seriously, thats a killer price, for a killer product.
What is a dryrobe, anyway? Born in the UK surfing scene …
The Dryrobe has a waterproof & windproof exterior fabric & a lining that dries you & keeps you warm. The design allows plenty of room to pull your arms in through the sleeves & get changed inside it. You can get a wetsuit, swim or tri kit, on or off, easily, while staying warm, dry & fully protected from the elements.
Other features invlude, soft lined external pockets, large internal storage pocket & MP3 player pocket. Our Unique chunky YKK® Zip front is an essential element providing fast, easy exit & entry.
Cold-weather conditions present unique challenges. Preserve your energy & core temperature with full-body protection from the elements. Leave it on over your clothing or wetsuit & re-use multiple times throughout the day without the dryrobe ever feeling wet or cold.
