G-1000 is Fjällräven’s own hardwearing and versatile fabric, a well-proven outdoor classic that will prepare you for all types of adventures, all year round.
The dense weave is made from 65% polyester and 35% cotton and is waxed with Greenland Wax. This combination makes G-1000 extremely durable, very well ventilated and also wind and water resistant. G-1000 is also mosquito proof (with the exception of G-1000 Lite) and provides an almost 100% protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB). Perfect for when you want to discover the great outdoors, without limitations.
G-1000 comes in four versions, where all the versions share the benefits of the original fabric, but each has its own specific properties.
We are also introducing Eco versions made from recycled polyester and organic cotton. Our organic cotton comes from certified farms and has the fibre length needed to make very durable fabrics. This means that our Eco versions have the same high durability and functionality as the other versions.
G-1000 Original – the durable original
65% polyester, 35% cotton. G-1000 Original is the original fabric in Fjällräven’s comfortable outdoor clothing. It started as a tent fabric that proved to be too heavy for lightweight tents. Tested under conditions including everything from Arctic and sub-Arctic expeditions to coffee breaks on sharp stones in forest glades.
Available in Eco version: G-1000 Eco
G-1000 Silent – Quiet and soft
65% polyester, 35% cotton. G-1000 Silent is a brushed version of the original fabric and is soft and quiet. The brushed finish weakens the fabric somewhat, but in return you get a garment that does not rustle, which is practical for hunting and game preservation work. It is also well-suited for clothing that will be used as much at work as out in the terrain.
G-1000 Lite – Lightweight and cool
65% polyester, 35% cotton. G-1000 Lite weighs less and is cooler than the original fabric, which makes it a good choice for light trekking garments in summer and travel garments that can handle tough wear. The fabric is woven with ripstop threads, which makes it durable despite its relatively low weight. Please note that G-1000 Lite is not mosquito proof.
G-1000 HeavyDuty – an even stronger fabric
G-1000 HeavyDuty is an extra durable version of the fabric and is almost impossible to wear out (laboratory tests gave it extremely high results). We use it for backpacks and bags, and for reinforcements in garments that require exceptional durability.
Available in Eco version: G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco
