Fjallraven Greenland Wax is an environmentally friendly water-proofing agent made specifically for use with G-1000 clothing. When applied to your clothing, this simple blend of paraffin and beeswax provides improved wind- and water-resistance, as well as overall durability, leading to a longer-lasting garment.

Unlike standard water-proofers which are added to your washing machine - thus affecting your entire garment - Greenland Wax allows you to truly adapt your garment's performance to your personal preferences. For example, extra protection can be added to the knees and seat of your trousers where they are more likely to come into contact with wet ground, while leaving the rest of the garment wax-free and more breathable. A number of common applications can be seen in the guide above.

Greenland Wax is applied by simply rubbing the bar across the chosen areas of your garment, and then heating those areas until the wax is melted. The vast majority of Fjallraven clothing is treated with this wax impregnation as standard during manufacturing, and it is recommend that you re-apply this wax coating regularly to improve the life of your garment. To remove the wax, simply wash your garment in a washing machine at 40°C.

  Used it to impregnate my Fjallraven trousers and dogs' coat. Easy to use and so far seems to be doing the job.

  First of all - good value for money - two of the larger blocks for 15 quid. Major point – this will not make G1000 waterproof unless you want to walk around in a straight jacket/trousers, it only makes it water resistant and even that depends on the age and condition of the fabric and the use that you put the garment to. I have used this stuff for about five years now on FR Barents trousers with marginally good results so long as you are thorough with the application process. I now first wash the garments in Techwash (soap) and then TX direct. Immediately before Greenland waxing I throw the garment into a tumble dryer (low heat) to warm it up a bit then stroking the block over the material leaves a good deposit. I place a heavy duty polythene strip beneath the layer that I am treating so that the wax doesnt bleed through to the ironing board or to the next garment layer. Make sure that you apply even coverage and get well into seams, dont forget there is cotton in the garment and it likes to wick moisture. I find that using a hair dryer is better than an iron. I always apply two coats of wax. The garment feels stiff for a while until you warm it up through wearing it. How good is it? - Immediately after waxing H20 will bead and run off undamaged material if held under a slow running cold water tap for about 5 – 10 minutes. If the material is worn it may get through in a few minutes! Out on the ground I still use a breathable liner beneath G1000 garments if the weather is inclement or the terrain is wet and I know that I will be exposed for a protracted period. Pressure points on the clothing - knees/seat/rucksack/waist belt etc can affect the wax and let H20 through. GW can also leave a dark, streaky effect on the material if your layering is uneven making the garment look dirty (if that is a concern to you). I view GW as a changeable weather, moisture ingress delay treatment and means of delaying wear on the garment as opposed to a bomb proof waterproof treatment. I have managed to get five double waxing treatments from one block.
