Whether you are preparing for a seaside staycation, braving wild swimming, venturing to your nearest lido, or you just enjoy a long soak in the bath, a quick drying robe is always a great idea, to ensure you're nice and cosy afterwards. 

More than 4.1million people are regularly donning their bathing suits to go open-water swimming, according to recent figures from Sport England, and if you are one of them making sure you have something warm to hand for when you have completed your lengths is a no brainer.

Why we rate it

The Microfibre Pool Bathrobe has garnered glowing reviews from shoppers who have used the robe for trips away, as well as in their own home. 

This creation is made from a polyester and polyamide blend, which is highly absorbent and quick drying. 

The robe has a hood, as well as pockets and a belt, so you can stay extra snug when you are drying off after a soak, or dip in the pool. 

It is also lightweight and will not take up much room in your suitcase when you are travelling. 

The women's version comes in three colours; deep purple, light purple and pink, as well as UK dress sizes extra small to extra large.

While the men's version comes in grey, as well as three other shades of blue. 

The Microfibre Pool Bathrobe costs £19.99.
