If you’re packing for the beach or pool this summer, then according to scores of Amazon shoppers, a changing robe, or surf poncho as it’s also called, could revolutionise your beach experience.
The £24.99 Fit-Flip Changing Robe is being snapped up by families headed to the beach thanks to its ability to give you that extra dose of privacy for when you want to change into or out of your swimsuit.
The Fit-Flip Changing Robe is a cosy option for covering up at the beach, giving you privacy when you want to change into and out of your swimsuit.
It also absorbs water four times faster than a traditional towel and is 60 per cent smaller, helping you pack lighter for the beach or the pool.
The Fit-Flip Changing Robe helps you change quickly and easily but also cleverly doubles up as a large beach towel
Hailed ‘extremely useful’ by Amazon shoppers, it acts as your very own portable changing room as well as a towelling robe that helps you dry off and warm up after a swim.
If you need a fuss-free way to dry off the kids or looking for a discreet way to get changed when at a beach this summer then a towel poncho is a brilliant beach hack.
The Fit-Flip Changing Robe is a cosy option for covering up; it also gives you privacy when you want to change and absorbs water four times faster than a traditional towel.
Preserving your modesty and protecting you against the elements, the changing robe comes in nine colours and two sizes.
Changing at the beach can pose all sorts of challenges, but the Fit-Flip Changing Towel aims to streamline your seaside experience.
According to shoppers, the quick dry hooded towel ‘makes changing on the beach no longer a nightmare’.
The long-cut towel is designed to keep your dignity when getting changed in public areas. It’s also made out of a super absorbent and quick-drying microfibre fabric to keep you dry and comfortable.
Better still, in contrast to traditional changing robes or towels, the finely woven microfibre material absorbs a lot more moisture and dries four times faster, even keeping sand at bay. Sixty per cent smaller than a towel, it’s much easier to pack too.
The clever side snaps allow even easier access when changing and helps the poncho open up into a large beach towel for quick drying
The Fit-Flip Changing Towel that shoppers say ‘makes changing quick and easy’ is a popular buy with Amazon shoppers, amassing over 1,200 five-star reviews.
One impressed shopper left a glowing review, writing: ‘Nicely compact and easy to shrug on and off, it provides welcome and immediate warmth.
‘It also greatly simplifies the business of getting undressed and dry. The good news continues at home as it is easy to rinse and quick to dry.’
Another agreed, adding: ‘This product is great for after water sports. It is comfortable and allows free movement whilst preserving your modesty. There is no grappling with towels. It dries you off and is easy to clean. Great product.’
A third penned: ‘I bought this for my grandson. It’s ideal for beaches and waterparks when getting changed in public and also keeps you warmer in the breezier climates.
‘I am going to order one for myself too as it’s so light and compact and also has a handy pouch for storage.’
