Loose weave Lightly waxed for slight weather resistance UV Protection
G-1000 is a very sturdy, rigid material but sometimes we want something lighter. Enter G-1000 Lite, a less stiff, more flexible version of the original. And to avoid reducing its strength we added rip-stop threads to boost its resistance to tears. It comes lightly waxed to offer some resistance to light winds and showers and, although it doesn’t safeguard against mosquitos, it still offers UV protection.
As part of our commitment to using more recycled and organic materials, we now have Eco versions – made from recycled polyester and organic cotton – of all our G-1000 fabrics. Find out about how we work with sustainable materials here.
Care & Repair
Made from a mixture of beeswax and paraffin, Greenland Wax is a simple, nature-inspired solution to the challenges faced in the outdoors. Most of our G-1000 materials come pre-waxed, but it’s still a good idea to know how to re-apply and remove the wax to adapt your jacket to the conditions.
