Arksen Labs is our concentrated collection of intuitive outdoor clothing, made to take you anywhere. High function. Extreme performance. Engineered with technology on the very precipice of design. This is clothing made for adventure and produced with our environmental impact in mind. Every fibre is considered and every stitch is made with purpose. Made in Europe in 95% recycled fabrics, every Labs piece has been created for durability and longevity. Performance and comfort. We’ve reimagined the essentials and we’ve crafted them well. Really well. A true capsule collection designed to be layered up, worn, re-worn, washed, scuffed, stuffed in packs and enjoyed adventure after adventure. We’ll even repair any damage to help extend the life of every product. Discover form clarified and function amplified. From our lab to your every day, an outdoor collection designed for life and developed for every environment.
From the very beginning of the Arksen journey, our core goals were to ensure that every part of the process fully delivered on our dual commitments to both environmental responsibility and to enable adventure. In order to achieve this, Arksen works with the most responsible and sustainable manufacturing partners in Europe. All of our fabrics are recycled and can be recycled. We use recycled down, Re-Down® to fill our warmest jackets and to help protect precious water resources we work with Majotech® Waterzero® fabric. But rest assured that sustainability hasn't compromised the quality, durability or performance of our garments.
Arksen works with the best international fabric mills in the world, to guarantee a high-functioning product that feels good to wear, where each component of every product has been designed to last a lifetime.
Arksen Labs has partnered with FuturePlus, a sustainability, environmental & social governance reporting platform that makes managing social and environmental impact trackable. FuturePlus qualifies our sustainability achievements before quantifying and translating them into a trackable action plan to help us deliver our sustainable development goals.Its indicators are made up of over 200 questions that will enable us to take practical, incremental steps towards sustainability by focusing on five themes: Climate, Economic, Diversity & Inclusion, Social and Environment.
Arksen Expedition Products
At Arksen, we imagine, design and engineer iconic outdoor adventure products. From exceptional explorer vessels and the toughest overland vehicles to high-tech performance wear and home lifestyle goods. Adventure is the lifeblood of our company and we live for the experiences that our iconic machines and products make possible.
Our aim is to create the world’s ultimate adventure company. Inspiring a new generation of explorer, sailor, adventurer and scientist. It’s our mission to motivate them to go further, for longer and in support of projects that empower global audiences to better understand, protect and nurture the world’s resources.
Starting life as a marine adventure company, Arksen is rooted in the ocean and oceanic health is our north star. This incredible biosphere produces 80% of the oxygen we breathe and supports 94% of the planet’s species yet attracts just 0.6% of all charitable donations. We wanted to change that, so we started 10% for the Ocean. Working with private individuals and organisations, our charity is on a mission to increase those donations from 0.6% to 10%.
To fully understand and protect our oceans, researchers need to explore above and below the water. Access to suitable vessels is limited, and costly. We saw an opportunity to help, so Arksen launched the Sea Time Pledge. Arksen owners are encouraged to donate a portion of their vessels’ annual sea time to scientific or educational projects. This dovetails with Yachts for Science of which Arksen is a founding member alongside EYOS Expeditions, Nekton, the Ocean Family Foundation and Boat International. The initiative brings together yacht owners and crew with marine scientists, researchers and content creators to provide them with passage to the oceans.
