SeasonFive gear is engineered to optimize comfort and answer a demand by paddlers, surfers, stand-up paddleboarders and outdoor enthusiasts for performance gear that is insulating, lightweight and durable. .
Warmer than a rash guard with more mobility and breathability than a wetsuit, SeasonFive apparel features Atmos 1.0 fabric, engineered to block outside elements while allowing vapor and heat to be released. The proprietary fabric blend is developed with minimal seams for longer comfort. 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 tops and pants with flatlock comfort seams and muscle support. The premium Phantom Line adds additional performance and style features including color-blocked panels, set-on banded cuffs, a zipper expansion neck gusset and a longer length.
“We’re looking forward to getting product onto our retailers’ shelves after years of development and planning,” says SeasonFive founder Mike Fischer. “Coming from the apparel design realm, it’s great to finally see an application of this technology available to the public.”
Supporting the Surfrider Foundation, SeasonFive is donating a portion of the sale of each garment to the protection of the Earth’s beaches and oceans.
