Red Original Accessories
Myself and Reggie have been testing out Red Originals Products during our Paddle and hiking trips…
Short sleeve pro changing robe.
I absolutely love my changing robe. This is one of my favourite pieces of Sup gear. I would say that this piece of kit is an essential as I use it after every paddle throughout the year.
I love how comfy the robe is and when worn it always feel cosy,especially on a cold day. The inside fleece lining is well insulated,always making me feel nice and warm.
There’s enough space inside it to get fully changed out of a wetsuit quickly and easily, without flashing to the world. Although it looks big, this is what it’s actually supposed to look like to enable easy changing. With easy hold zip pulls it’s easy to put on and take off. The hood is also well insulated and keeps the wind off you whilst getting changed.
The robe seems quite bulky but it surprisingly can fold right down so it can be put into a bag.
Priced at £119.95 – for the quality alone, these robes are definitely worth the money!
A very handy towel to have. It’s a good size when opened up fully and can fold up small which makes easy to carry and fit in any sized bag.
There is a loop so when folded it can button up to keep it together.
Its lightweight so is good not only for paddle boarding but for hikes too. I own two of these, one which I use for myself and the other has been great to use for my dog Reggie. It’s absorbent and designed with anti-odour and anti-bacterial properties so great to towel dry Reggie when wet. When aired, the quick drying material enables it to be used again in no time.

Insulated stainless steel water bottle
I regularly use this bottle, not just for SUP, but for on most of my crazy adventures.
The BPA free bottle has 2 lid options making it perfect for all outdoor activities. It has a canteen cap and a sports drinking cap.
With water bottles I usually find they can end up smelling funny, which puts me off using them. I’ve found this bottle is easy to clean and find that drinks always seem fresh.
I love to have a cup of tea or hot chocolate during a paddle. The insulation on this bottle is awesome- On one occasion the bottle was filled with tea and I left it in the car by mistake. I was out for just over 8 hours and was amazed that the tea was still steaming hot when I opened it, literally like it had just come out of the kettle! Apparently they stay insulated for 12 hours,but I’m yet to test this out.
In the summer and on walks I tend to use the sports drinking cap. I usually fill it with juice and in the summer add a little ice. Was made up on a summers paddle this year to have a nice icey cold drink on a hot day.
The bottle can be easily attached anywhere. I use a carabiner to attach it to the end of my board and also to my bag on hikes. It’s solid and a great size ,so good for being used both during and after activities.
Another feature I found out myself is that it floats. I accidentally dropped it in the water and was quite relieved that I could grab it out.

Dog Buoyancy aid
A life saver (literally!) For a while I was trying to find a dog buoyancy aid that was the perfect fit for Reggie. I head out on our paddle board a lot so I wanted something that he would feel comfortable in.
This is is the only buoyancy aid that Reggie has lay down and fell asleep in because of its wide leg fit. It has no Velcro and is designed not to pinch,so his hair doesn’t get stuck like other buoyancy aids. It also doesn’t make his fur Matt, which is a bonus for cockapoos as their fur tangles easily.
Its quick and easy to adjust and comes in a range of different sizes and colours. I’ve had a Red Original buoyancy aid for Reggie for over a year now. I am still impressed by the quality as it still looks like new,especially after the amount it get used.

Waterproof Cooler Bag
Can’t believe how amazing the quality is of these bags. As soon as I opened this parcel I was thought “wow”. Definitely the most stylish and sturdy cool bag I’ve owned.
It’s great to have a bag that I know I won’t lose when paddle boarding. There are attachments which enables you to attach the bag to the end of your board and it main feature is that its waterproof. As well as handles there is also a long strap to make it easier when carrying.
Water proof pouch
I previously used a small waterproof bag from Amazon which I found wasn’t actually waterproof. I now couldn’t go on a paddle without this pouch as I know it’s 100% waterproof.
It’s compact and easy to attach to your board or belt with its velcro attachments. It’s has an aqua seal zip which also protects from dirt. It has a removable padded insert which gives extra protection for valuables like your phone.
I have previously accidentally dropped my phone & car keys into the water,so for me this product is a life saver. No more worries anymore for getting any of my valuables wet.
Priced at £64.95
In my opinion all of the Red Original products are “Must have products”. I always feel pretty stylish when using their products. Definitely essential gear for all paddle boarders. Their products are top quality and I know that each product will last for a very long time. I highly recommend them and am intrigued to see what other products they will bring out in the future.
