G-1000 is Fjällräven’s signature range of fabrics. You will find that the vast majority of our Fjällräven range is made at least partly with it. Made using a blend of polyester and cotton (65% and 35% respectively) it is a windproof, highly durable, breathable, and adaptable material thanks to its ability to be manipulated using Greenland Wax.
The addition of the wax makes G-1000 more water-resistant; you can apply this wax using an iron or other heat source in carefully selected areas like a garment’s high-pressure points, shoulders, thighs, and trouser seats in order to prioritise both water resistance and breathability.
G-1000 comes in several varieties including G-1000 original, Silent, Eco, Heavy Duty, Air, Lite, and Stretch which Fjällräven uses where needed in specialising each product.
