At the very beginning, in 1977, Laksen Sporting had a small in-house production of quality clothing for hunting and fly fishing, and not least, handmade fly fishing rods. Everything was designed, manufactured and sold in Denmark.
In 1979-1980 this changed rapidly, as Laksen Sporting was granted the first European license to manufacture clothing with waterproof Gore-Tex technology. Being one of the first brands to offer real waterproof garments to hunters and fly fishers in Europe, Laksen Sporting grew quickly, and the export adventure started.
Garments for hunting and shooting soon became the majority of our business, and by the end of the 90’s, our focus was solely on hunting and shooting. In 1999, we introduced the first lightweight and waterproof-breathable pure wool tweed products, which lead to extensive growth.
Today, our passion for sporting adventures like shooting, stalking and hunting drives us to develop the best possible clothing and accessories for any kind of sporting situation in all thinkable weather conditions.
The Laksen Sporting collection consists of more than 400 unique products for hunting and shooting, and we still specialize in innovative, yet authentic high-quality clothing. A large part of our collection is still dedicated to our trademark – lightweight, waterproof-breathable performance products in fine Scottish tweed.
