Plush, Prized and Poolside: The 9 Best Men's Bathrobes You Can Find Online

Our team is dedicated to finding and telling you more about the web’s best products. If you purchase through our links, we may receive a commission. Our editorial team is independent and only endorses products we believe in.

The bathrobe, staple though it is, is also a bit of a misnomer. If you're asking yourself "who takes baths anymore" (me, by the way, every time I check into a hotel), know that the answer is patently beside the point. Today's bathrobes come in all weights and sizes, from terry so thick it envelopes you to thinner, breezier cotton alternatives. 

With functionality that places it somewhere between resortwear, athleisure and intimates, the bathrobe can be ingeniously versatile – when you've got a stylish one, that is. For help leveling up your leisure, look no further than the nine brands below, our picks for the best in class when it's time to unwind. No bath required: all that's needed is a serious commitment to getting cozy.

For Bundling Up

Brooklinen

Brooklinen

Brooklinen may have lighter alternatives, like its Wirecutter-endorsed Waffle Robe. But sometimes you just want to lose yourself in softness, and the Super-Plush Robe more than lives up to its name. With sleeves so wide they've been rolled back for you, and long-staple cotton for towel-like absorbency, this is a robe you can step into the minute you're out of the shower. No wonder it's the brand’s best seller: at 820 grams per square meter of fabric, the heft of this material alone makes it the weighted blanket of leisurewear.

Available in five loud, colorful prints, California Cowboy's El Garibaldi Robe will officially announce you as the master of ceremonies.

It's got the 21st century customer in mind, though, as evidenced by the zippered pocket to keep your phone safe for everything from cannonball splashes to margarita spillage. And with a 5-star average across 300+ customer reviews, this robe keeps the good times rolling.

A brand synonymous with the leisurely pleasures of "the modern day dandy," Dandy del Mar’s funky silhouettes would look equally at home in Palm Springs or Havana. Men's hemlines have been rising lately and this robe is no exception: the above-the-knee length is decidedly cool and contemporary, with larger sizes available for anyone who prefers more coverage. But either way, with ultra-soft terry perfect for sunbathing, sailing, or even just drinking wine in, this robe makes paradise feel accessible and everyday.

Desmond & Dempsey

Hailing from a brand so British its "pyjamas" section is spelled like that, this Navy Brushed Cotton Robe feels like a modern answer to the good old-fashioned dressing gown. Everything from its length to the contrasted piping evokes images of lazing around your manor house – and doing it in style. The lightweight brushed cotton keeps things airy while feeling ubersoft to the touch, so it can be easily layered with all kinds of separates underneath. Whether or not you've caught even five minutes of Downtown Abbey, some fashions never go out of style.

For A Trip To The Zen Garden

Odd Bird

With a colorway inspired by Japanese indigo and denim, Odd Bird's breathable, laidback Limited Edition Filiz Robe is all about balance. The fabric weight falls in that Goldilocks range that makes it equally suited for summer lounging and winter snuggling – and for that we have none other than Turkish cotton to thank. Unlike thicker terry alternatives, this one gets softer and more absorbent with every wash, so both you and your robe can age like fine wine.

Parachute

Perhaps the lightest robe on our list, Parachute's Cloud Cotton Robe uses fluffy 4-play gauze to get the cloudlike comfort of its name. Available in a wide range of earthy and pastel tones, like celery, clay and mulberry, Parachute's products always feel clean and organic. The material is subtly ribbed in a way that creates a checker-like pattern, bringing nuance and handfeel to the solid colors, and the hidden side pockets make for easy functionality. In short, it's an understated knockout.

Reigning Champ

In every detail from its oversized hood to its athletic silhouette, Reigning Champ's Midweight Terry Robe is straight out of the boxing gym. Not exactly a surprise from a brand with that name, but the sweatshirt-like material makes for an addictively soft wear. This one's a snugger fit, with intricate seaming and flat front pockets, and feels like being bundled up in your favorite pair of joggers. Who knew you needed a robe you could wear to the sauna and then to take on Apollo Creed?

Peruse Tekla's colorway options for its Hooded Bathrobe and you'll find not one, not two styles to choose from… but twenty-three. With each look bolder than the next, ranging from large red or green block-stripes to vivid solids like mustard yellow, Tekla's robes are unmistakably statement pieces. As such, they've won big fans in the design community, but the soft, 100% organic cotton made in Portugal is a crowdpleaser no matter who you are. So go ahead: bring some boldness to bathtime.
