The Selkie


Our brand new … The Ootsider Selkie … is an even higher spec Changing Robe than our original. Evaluated alongside competitors changing robes by Muscle and Health Magazine … an honour given the short history of The Ootsider, and here’s what they had to say about it:-

“… We are not sure what’s more impressive here. The robe, or the ethical message and purpose rooted at the core of The Ootsider, a Community Interest Company, on a mission to make a positive social impact to those sleeping rough on our streets

The eco-friendly changing robe itself is beautifully crafted. It emits warmth and a high level of craftsmanship from the outset, from its adjustable hood to superb weather protection. 

All purchases from The Ootsider have a greater purpose, a potentially life-changing acquisition which could greatly improve the life of a rough sleeper.

All net profits from sales are reinvested into making more Sleeping Coats before they are then donated to folks sleeping on the streets. If that’s not enough to make you buy one, we don’t know what is…”
