“It was an obvious choice of us to support Team FD and First Descents,” says SeasonFive CEO Mike Fischer.  “Their camps have always been rooted in the healing power of watersports and we’re so impressed by their efforts to empower their campers “We just want to be a part of it. So we’re happy to provide Team FD with SeasonFive gear to keep them training and competing more comfortably.”

The proprietary fabric blend is developed with minimal seams to ensure the user stays more comfortable longer. Atmos 1.0 fabric is 10,000 mm waterproof and 10,000 g/m breathable. The foundation of SeasonFive products, the Barrier Line offers men’s and women’s specific tops and bottoms, with flatlock comfort seams and muscle support.
