Greenland Wax
Fjall Raven (Swedish for arctic fox) was founded in 1950 by Åke Nordin. Åkes products and fabrics quickly became coveted among climbers and outdoorsmen. Environmentally friendly wax impregnation developed in-house for clothes in G-1000®-fabric. By rubbing the wax into the fabric and warming it, the surface becomes water repellent.
  • 1. Apply wax to the G-1000 fabric evenly
  • 2. Heat waxed fabric with a hairdryer
  • Context Expert Tip: What makes G-1000 unique is that you can adapt the garment to the current weather conditions. If the weather is expected to take a turn for the worse, simply heat more Greenland Wax into exposed areas using an iron or hairdryer. This will make the G-1000 fabric almost waterproof and windproof.

    If the weather is gorgeous, you can wash the wax out of your garment using a normal washing machine. With a thin layer of wax, G-1000 is cool, comfortable and offers maximum breathability. You are welcome to visit shops that carry our G-1000 range. (Although we do request that you leave your iron at home).
    Original Price: $17.00
