For Immediate Release:
SEASONFIVE AND TRIDENT SPORTS JOIN FORCES IN NORTH AMERICA
Vancouver, B.C., February 16, 2015 – SeasonFive, designers of light, waterproof and breathable technical outdoor apparel announce they will be partnering with Trident Sports to strengthen their distribution across North America. SeasonFive will be joining the likes of other premium adventure sports labels under Trident distribution, such as Starboard, Airush, Severne, Alpinestars and Banshee.
SeasonFive’s focus is to build innovative, leading-edge products that are accessible to the general public without compromising on quality. Started by industry veteran Mike Fischer, whose background spans from the surf apparel industry to building protective apparel for climbing Mount Everest, the SeasonFive team uses its expertise in fabric technology and garment construction to look at ways of fabricating apparel to keep you more comfortable, longer.
“The demand for better solutions to outdoor apparel problems is what initiated the concept for SeasonFive,” says Fischer. “How do we stay warmer, cooler, drier, more comfortable and better protected? We call it problem solving.”
In 2012, SeasonFive debuted the Atmos 1.0 collection, a component-based apparel solution for water sports – like stand up paddle boarding, surfing or kayaking – that crosses over to mountain biking, triathlons, road biking and beyond. “It is meant to protect you from wind, rain and snow, while also keeping you comfortable in the heat,” says Fischer.
In 2014, SeasonFive introduced a lightweight active collection using the newly developed Atmos LT fabric. This material segues into the exploration of lightweight and ultralight winter expedition gear that is ideal for early spring adventurers.
SeasonFive’s 2015 partnership with Trident Sports will lead to more streamlined operations and a more comprehensive distribution channel to dealers across the United States and Canada, leaving room for SeasonFive to focus on what they do best – the design and production of innovative, leading-edge technical sports apparel.
Perched at 10,000 feet in the heart of Breckenridge, Colorado, the lifestyle and drive of Mike Fischer and staff to push their gear as far as themselves spawned the inspiration and desire behind SeasonFive. After taking a decade off to create award-winning products for leading active and outdoor brands, SeasonFive’s founders are back and psyched to be bringing their experience and forward-thinking ways to the table in creating the very best in light, waterproof and breathable technical outdoor apparel. www.seasonfive.com
