ATMOS 1.0 vs NEOPRENE
We've come a long way since Neoprene was our only solution to keep the cold water off our bodies. This is 2016, and in the past 60+ years we've come a long way, including developing waterproof & breathable fabrics that keep the water out, but don't leave you trapped in a rubber suit with no way for our built up heat to escape.
ATMOS LT vs LYCRA RASH GUARDS OR WICKING FABRICS
In our opinion, if your clothes stay dry, you are more comfortable, especially when that chilly breeze comes along, or you want the breeze to get through your shirt to cool you down. With traditional rash guards and wicking fabrics, they get wet, which blocks the breathability of the garment, and can get pretty chilly wearing a soaking wet shirt. Atmos LT fabric stays dry because of the hydrophobic yarns it's made with, keeps you protected from the sun with UPF 50+, and a whole lot more features.
ATMOS 2.0 vs Traditional Fleece
We've engineered the first softshell that was meant to be used around water, with a water repellent fleece backer behind out waterproof breathable membrane and outer tight knit fabrics, so you're staying dry, comfortable in our 4-way stretch, and not walking around in soaking wet fleece pants or jacket.
