This Season's Summer Essential: Quick-Drying Ponchos

Updated: Apr 16

Our 7 North team were thrilled to launch our latest summer essential this week - our brand new Lakeland Active Patterdale Poncho Changing Towels.

With summer '23 just around the corner (otherwise known as 'Water Shoe Season' here in our Carlisle office), we've been busy working on the perfect product for families headed on holiday and dreaming of days beside the water. Lightweight, quick-drying, compact and highly absorbent our Patterdale changing robes are the ultimate essential to pop into your beach bag, water-sports kit or backpack. Perfect for getting changed quickly and easily at the beach, without showing off more bits than you'd like!

Swap Heavy Towels for Lightweight Compact Ponchos

Our Patterdale changing robe is ideal for saving suitcase space and keeping everyone warm and dry on holidays and days by the water. Whether you're headed to the beach or going swimming, surfing, kayaking or paddleboarding (we love a bit of a paddle here at 7 North), the quick-drying microfibre is highly absorbent, lightweight and foldable taking up 70% less space than a classic cotton towel. Win win :)

Helpful Hoods for Outdoor Adventurers

Featuring easy-to-use snap buttons along each side (turning it from a hooded poncho to a huge towel in seconds!), our Patterdale changing robe is great for all your outdoor adventures. The practical roomy design provides a quick and convenient space to get changed in privacy. Whether you're hiking (with a touch of waterfall hunting), sailing, camping, paddling or heading to festivals and planning picnics by the lake, it's the ideal multi-use hooded layer to keep you warm between activities. Perfect for our unpredictable British weather.

Keep Everyone Warm and Dry This Summertime

Available in three colours: Navy Blue, Mid Blue and Pink our Patterdale changing poncho comes in adult and child (age 5 - 10) sizes so you can get the whole family kitted out in quick-drying microfibre robes. Ideal for keeping everyone happy while they eat ice-cream, explore the rock pools, eat picnics or get dry after endless hours in the swimming pool.

Did we mention it's also the perfect accessory to our Number 1 bestselling Eden Water Shoes? So you can sort their summer footwear and their poncho/towels all at once on our website - how handy.

Are we excited about our Patterdale Changing Robe?

Absolutely, it's a 3-in-one product that can be used as a changing robe, an oversized towel and a hooded poncho. What's not to love?! Rhys, one of our warehouse team members, has even declared it his favourite Lakeland Active product at our recent team photoshoot - hoorah!

We're looking forward to using the Patterdale on our next outdoor team activity, paddleboards at the ready...
