Since 2002

Atmosphere is a retailer specialized in outdoor equipment, clothing and footwear. Its products are primarily for camping, hiking, climbing and water sports like canoeing, kayaking and scuba diving. With regard to clothing, Atmosphere focusses on international brands like The North Face, Columbia, Icebreaker and Arc’teryx.

The banner was launched in 2002 by the Forzani Group Ltd (FGL), the owner of the Sports Experts chain since 1994. FGL was then acquired in 2011 by the Canadian Tire Corporation. As of 2018, Atmosphere distributes its products through its 80 Quebec franchise locations and its online store, which it shares with Sports Experts.
