Less draughty and more coverage then your towel when changing on busy beaches, river banks and lakeshores. We find this Dryrobe Swimming Changing Towel  the best option for summer swimming or for just going to the pool. It is great just to throw on whilst faffing about getting children changed, finding your undies, etc! The cotton used in these changing robes is very good quality and the cotton seems to hold its colour very well even after heavy use - highly recommended. Now made from soft organic cotton.
