It all started in a Scandinavian farmhouse in the 17th century. Being successful hunters, the family was able to build a thriving business selling both meat and furs in the local area and beyond.

This continued into the mid-20th century when the family advanced their business to breeding and training hunting dogs. The Harkila Kennel grew and became one of the largest in Scandinavia. The kennel is still running today and has won over 300 awards for outstanding achievement.

So you can see that Harkila is successful in whatever it does, and it was only natural for them to move into clothing. They took on the challenge of improving traditional hunting clothes into the ultimate hunting gear.

"Hunters love Harkila because it is comfortable and durable!"

Whatever clothing you choose, it's fit for the roughest terrain, keeps you protected from wind, rain, heat and snow. It gives you the best experience with nature, no matter what the conditions might be.

Harkila was the first clothing company to introduce GoreTex into their hunting gear, and the company is always innovating and moving their clothing forward with new developments in manufacturing and materials.

Harkila has developed their clothing into 3 core ranges of gear:

  • Performance

    Clothing, footwear and equipment made for shooting in varied terrain and for traversing long distances. Combining innovative materials with functional design, the Performance line offers high comfort, low weight and breathability to ensure optimal results and make your shooting experience an achievement.

  • Endurance

    Durable and functional clothing, footwear and equipment designed for hunting in tough conditions. Tailormade for ruthless climate, the Endurance line is rock solid and will provide all the practical means necessary to fully focus on the hunt.

  • Classics

    Stylish yet functional clothing, footwear and equipment rooted in the design traditions of classic shooting. Combining high-quality materials with elegant designs, Classics provides the shooter with a sleek appearance for both shooting and leisure - without compromising functional materials and details.

New products introduce state-of-the-art technology, materials and functionality while maintaining the fundamental qualities of excellent hunting gear.

Harkila only uses the best materials, and they collaborate with a number of world-leading experts within material and technology innovation in clothing, footwear and equipment.

Hunting is not just about shooting an animal or bird. Hunting is about being in the wild for hours or days on end if need be. Hunting is about trusting your instinct and your gear enough for you to enter an almost trance-like state, become one with nature and realise that nothing else really matters.

"Whatever your needs, Harkila has the right gear for you!"
