"Into the sea I go, to ease my mind and soothe my soul"
Vico Robe is a brand new Irish business born out of the recent lockdowns. As many aspects of our lives moved outdoors Vico Robes was launched with a range of outerwear to encourage people to get out in style. With collections of Dry Changing Robes, Poncho Towel Robes, Drybags and Hi-Vis Vests the joys of cold-water swimming, walking, hiking and cycling can be experienced in comfort and warmth.
For many of you familiar with the beautiful swimming spots all around our Island, the breathtaking views along the coastal Vico Road in Dublin are unquestionable. Named after this idyllic and iconic area, Vico Robes aim to provide comfort, style and warmth to outdoor enthusiasts all over Ireland.
Vico changing robes are designed to be practical, warm, extremely comfortable and stylish. In bright happy colours they will enhance your swim experience at any time of the year by keeping you warm and cosy and enabling easy changing before and afterwards. But not limited to sea swimming they are an essential item for those Chilly evenings, Barbeques and Al Fresco dining, Outdoor Social Meets, Sporting Events, Concerts, Festivals, Watersports and Camping.
To complete the ideal swimming kit we also offer matching 20 litre Vicopack Dry Bags and 3 varieties of Poncho Towelling Robes. Our latest addition, Vico Viz , a bright and sporty hi-vis vest will keep you safe and seen when out cycling or walking on our busy roads.
As a year round sea swimmer I really appreciate the many physical and general mental health benefits of cold water swimming. I want to spread the word and love of responsible sea swimming and to that end 5% of all online Vico Robe profits are donated to Pieta House, the centre for the prevention of self-harm and suicide in Ireland. Additionally, we have participated in two very successful Darkness into Light sunrise swims raising over €1500 collectively for this great cause.
