Pacific Outdoor Equipment will be the exclusive U.S. distributor for the European brand LAKEN, manufacturer of high quality aluminum and stainless steel drinking bottles. All support and customer service for LAKEN’s U.S. customers will be handled by Pacific Outdoor Equipment’s rep-force and it’s headquarters in Bozeman, Montana.

“We are excited to be bringing LAKEN into the US market. LAKEN and Pacific Outdoor both share a dedication to innovative functional design and sustainability,” said Pacific Outdoor’s General Manager, Greg Garrigues. “The partnership will enable us to further support our dealers by offering them the highest quality gear with exceptional customer service.”

Manufactured in Murcia, Spain, the official U.S. preview of LAKEN’s new 2008 line will be at this summer’s Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City, Utah.

LAKEN’s Canadian customers will continue to be serviced by distributor Vezar and Associates from their Montreal offices.
