Why We Love Short Sleeve Changing Robes In Summer

Posted by Lydia Burdett

If you’re a loyal part of the changing robe revolution, you might be thinking it’s time to finally tuck your trusty outdoor companion into the cupboard for the summer. Opportunities to wear your changing robe do naturally decrease in frequency as the weather dries up but this is not to say that your portable changing space cannot accompany you on all of your summer adventures. In fact, with a short sleeve changing robe, you can enjoy all of the benefits of this trusty piece of kit in a more seasonally appropriate design. 

To celebrate the arrival of the sun, we’ve taken a deep dive into the benefits of the short-sleeved version of our ever-popular Pro Change Robe EVO. Here’s why there’s no need to give up on wearing your favourite item of clothing just yet! 

Improved Ventilation

Unlike our long-sleeved changing robes which feature cuffed sleeves for total warmth, our short-sleeved alternatives deliver the perfect balance of protection and ventilation. The loose short sleeves cover the upper arm but allow for better circulation to keep you cool and comfortable on those dreamy summer days when you’re at the beach and need to change quickly but don’t want to overheat. Plus, the short sleeve Pro Change Robe EVO is also constructed from incredibly breathable waterproof fabric which further enhances comfort levels and ensures excess moisture can escape when you start to warm up!

Hassle-Free Changing

The beauty of our changing robes is that they offer a convenient space to change, no matter where you are. Whether beachside, pitchside, or back by the car, you can turn any space into a makeshift changing room and pop dry clothes back on in peace. This sentiment rings particularly true for a short sleeve changing robe! The roomy and shorter sleeves mean that you can easily get your arms inside and get changed quickly - all while keeping cosy and covered from the elements. 

Compact & Lightweight

Preparing for busy summer days can be a challenge, particularly if you’re heading out with the kids or planning for an entire day, picnic and all, in the great outdoors. Having to lug lots of heavy gear to your chosen destination when it’s already hot can detract from your enjoyment of the adventure so finding compact and lightweight kit is crucial! Fortunately, our short-sleeved changing robes are surprisingly lightweight and easy to transport even when not being worn. Whether slung into your existing bag or neatly packed into one of our handy changing robe stash bags, the compact short-sleeved design makes packing for your summer adventures a total breeze. 


One of the major benefits of changing robes is their versatility. Whether you’re heading paddleboarding or swimming, spending time at the beach, or even watching the kids from the sidelines, a good changing robe will keep you dry and protected from all of the elements. With a short sleeve changing robe, you can throw even more activities into the mix. Simply throw yours on as an adaptable layer during a beach BBQ when the temperature drops or when moving around the campsite on your summer holidays. The practical sleeve length will ensure that you can stay comfortable and cosy whilst also getting your hands dirty.

Quick To Dry

A desire to make the most of the weather means it’s natural to find yourself on the go more often than usual in the summer months. To manage a packed schedule, you need equipment that will be ready and useable whenever you need it - and definitely no damp and soggy clothes or towels! Thankfully, our short sleeve changing robes are exceptionally quick-drying thanks to their moisture-wicking fleece lining. This benefit also makes it incredibly easy to wash and care for your changing robe ahead of your next adventure. 

They Look Great!

Whether poolside or pitchside, our short-sleeved Pro Change Robe EVO is also guaranteed to make you look and feel great this summer. Our collection of short sleeve changing robes is free from bland and wintry monotones with a great range of colour combinations available. Contrast pockets and linings make the designs stand out without losing their premium feel, guaranteeing that you will be the most stylish person on the beach this year.
