220 Triathlon Changing Robe November 2020
Lomo Changing Robe £75 Bargain gown?
A side from Amazon and liquid soap makers, there aren’t many brands who’ve done well in 2020. Judging by the number of new robes seen outside our pool and OW venue, Dryrobe could be another. Seen here is Lomo’s £45-cheaper alternative to the classic original. The waterproof outer shell proved effective on swim/surf/camping trips with huge levels of rain, while the zipped pockets and two-way zipper are further boons. Yet where it falls down is the inner lining, which is traditional towelling compared to DR’s Synthetic Lambswool, proving slower to dry and less efficient at wicking water from the body. The untidy internal seams and lack of sizing options also limit its appeal. MB lomo.co.uk
VERDICT WARMANDMORE AFFORDABLE, BUT THE ORIGINAL IS STILL THE ONE TO BEAT
