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).
