ELKA was founded in Karup, Denmark by Ejnar Lauridsen in 1958. The name comes from the founder's initials (EL) and the city name (KA). Since that time, the brand has developed into one of the world's leading specialists in waterproof clothing. Elka have produced utilitarian weatherproof garments for a number of extremes; from policemen to deep sea fishermen. With a typically clean and minimalist Scandinavian aesthetic, their PVC blend jackets offer 100% waterproof construction and heat sealed seams, meaning you'll stay dry in every situation.
