The best outdoor fabric on the market
A Fjällräven original, G-1000® fabric is tightly woven, hard-tested and quick-to-dry, providing excellent ventilation, top-grade wind and water resistance, and remarkable durability across the globe, indoors and out.
A proven recipe
Handmade by a small family in Sweden, Greenland Wax adapts G-1000® garments to specific weather and activity needs. More wax improves resistance and increases durability. Less wax and garments become cooler and more breathable. To remove wax, wash garments in a washing machine at 40°C.
Rub Greenland Wax block into garment wherever greater resistance is needed. Apply generously.
Using a hair dryer, iron or dryer, heat the garment until the wax melts and sinks into the fabric.
Durable and Adaptable
Often the best choice
“I have used G-1000® clothing and equipment for many years in different environments all over the world. What I appreciate most is its well-rounded durability. If you haven’t put G-1000® to the test, I recommend you do so.”
Exploration is the father of invention.
After a Swedish climbing expedition to Greenland in 1966, Fjällräven’s founder, Åke Nordin, was determined to create better a better selection of outdoor clothing. Using a durable fabric too heavy for the lightweight tents of the time and a paraffin beeswax mixture for added resilience, G-1000® was born and has protected adventurers ever since.

A cherished favorite since 1968
The grandfather of all outdoor jackets, the Greenland Jacket became an immediate favorite after its introduction in 1968. Climbers love the practical garment for its wind and water resistance, for its hood that follows the movements of the head, and for its convenient chest pockets that can be reached even when wearing a climbing harness.
