“We are excited to work with Backbone and confident that their experience promoting outdoor apparel and expertise with product placement will ad momentum to the Atlantis brand re-launch,” Chaz Bertrand, Atlantis president stated.

Nate Simmons of Backbone Media said, “The combination of technical performance, street appeal, and continuing design innovation makes Atlantis relevant not only for the core sailing market but also for broader active lifestyle applications. When a great brand like this targets an underserved segment of the market, it's bound to create some buzz.”

Originally owned and operated by a group of sailors and mountaineers in the 1970's, the Atlantis brand became well known for integrating ski industry fabrics into performance sailing apparel to create a design aesthetic that was the first of its kind in the industry. The Atlantis name and remaining inventory were purchased in 2006 by a small group of Marblehead-based sailors who embrace the brand's heritage of innovation to create the best sailing apparel in the world for their friends and fellow sailors.

The Atlantis brand philosophy is rooted in a shared passion to deliver a line of sailing apparel that performs flawlessly in any conditions without traditional foul weather gear styling. New 2007 products include the Aegis, a coastal jacket made with Atlantis' waterproof/breathable 3-layer Typhoon Fabric with a clear “watch window” on the wrist and high visibility stow-away hood. The Microburst Collection is a series of lightweight, waterproof breathable jackets made from Atlantis' 2.5-layer VMG fabric in both men's and women's styles, perfect to bring along just in case the weather turns. The Grand Prix Collection is an incredibly versatile mid/outer layer series of jackets and vests made from Atlantis' Rampage Soft Shell Fabric, combining breathability and weather protection.
