Northcore Beach Basha Pro – the four season convertible changing robe

The changing robe concept has been embraced by surfers and outdoor sportsmen and women the world over and for good reason. It is one of the most useful pieces of gear you’ll ever own and the Northcore Beach Basha is one of the finest examples on the market.

Sometimes a changing robe needs to offer maximum protection from the elements and additional warmth during times like surf checks on cold or rainy days. So we have created a unique, proprietary design which we’ve called Beach Basha Pro.

Our 380gsm 100% cotton towelling Beach Basha robe offers optimum drying performance and privacy for changing. Plus the thermal properties of the thick material provides insulation against the cold. The Beach Basha Pro adds further versatility and protection by incorporating an extra layer of a weather resistant heavy duty outer hard shell. The hard shell cleverly zips onto the inner towelling robe to produce a rugged, performance, convertible changing robe. Not only can the Beach Basha Pro be worn as a complete set in Autumn/Winter when the weather or conditions call for it but it can also be converted. It’s possible to use the inner layer only during the Spring/Summer just as a towelling robe and even as a beach towel as it can be opened into a towel when unzipped.

The tough polyester outer hard shell material has an impressive water resistance rating of 5000mm and a breathability or MVTR (Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate) of 5000g. So wind and showers are dealt with whilst any moisture on the inner layer is allowed to breathe through the shell.

Each layer has a heavy duty double ended plastic zip which can zip up each layer individually or be zipped together to create a single robe. To further integrate the two layers into one, the hood and wrists have velcro connecting strips to ensure a great fit.

For changing, the inner arm holes have wide opening so arms can be pulled inside for privacy, there are fleece lined pockets to keep hands toasty warm, the hood is triple panel for a ergonomic fit so great on cold or windy days. The Beach Basha Pro is a unisex garment available in two sizes. Small/med which will fit most people from younger teenagers up to shorter adults and the large/extra large which will fit most taller adults.

The Beach Basha Pro Robe is four season, multifunctional and convertible making it the most unique and versatile changing robe on the market.

We were stoked that the guys at Surfbunker wanted to review our new 4 season changing robe! The Beach Basha Pro certainly didn’t let us down…

…”It managed to sway my opinion on whether these products have a place in the surfing world. Not only did I have a changing robe but it would appear that I have the best and most comprehensively thought out changing robe”. – James, Surfbunker
