FJÄLLRÄVEN - OUTDOOR EQUIPMENT WITH PASSION
Fjällräven comes from Sweden and, due to the Nordic weather, is familiar with the high demands that nature lovers place on their outdoor gear. Because nature always challenges you. Nature lover Åke Nordin also knows this, who founded his company in 1960 with the first backpack on a lightweight yet sturdy aluminium frame. In the following years, many products followed that you need for your outdoor adventure: Sleeping bags, outdoor jackets and functional mountain trousers. The range of the clever Swedes also includes practical items for on the go, such as shoulder bags, daypacks and backpacks for trekking tours lasting several days. Fjällräven produces its outdoor equipment with passion and for all those who love nature.
THROUGH NATURE WITH G-1000
Decades after the company was founded, the backpacks on which Fjällräven's success is based are still in the range - but better than ever. The small Kånken and large backpacks score points just like the outdoor clothing of the Swedes thanks to their robust material. G-1000 is the name of the functional material that the brand has been using continuously for all its products since 1968. It is a high-quality functional blend of polyester and cotton. The label produces no less than five variants of it, in order to be able to offer the right material for all situations.
ADAPTABLE FJÄLLRÄVEN OUTDOOR GEAR FOR ALL WEATHER CONDITIONS
What makes G-1000 so special? It is breathable, wind-resistant and extremely durable, making it ideal for outdoor use. The material also offers your skin optimal protection against UV radiation. Fjällräven's special feature is that you can turn backpacks, functional trousers and jackets into waterproof functional equipment in no time at all with Greenland Wax. The mixture of paraffin and beeswax protects the material from water penetration. When the water-repellent protection is no longer needed, you can simply remove the Greenland Wax from the surface and enjoy the breathability of your equipment. It's easy to adapt your outdoor gear to your individual needs for many years to come.
THE FIVE TYPES OF G-1000 FUNCTIONAL FABRIC
G-1000 Original is made of 65 percent polyester and 35 percent cotton. The tear-resistant, durable material is waxed and offers reliable protection against mosquitoes and UV radiation. G-1000 Air is unwaxed and is particularly suitable for exploration in warmer climates due to its better ventilation. The loose weave ensures excellent air circulation while keeping the weight down. Wildlife photographers will enjoy the soft, smooth and silent G-1000 Silent fabric. This means you can lie in wait undetected and especially quietly, while enjoying effective protection from the weather and mosquitoes. G-1000 Heavy Duty is pre-waxed on both sides, water repellent and extremely robust, making it ideal for backpacks. G-1000 Lite saves weight because the fabric is loosely woven and only lightly waxed. Still, you get the popular UV protection and the outdoor clothing repels wind and water.
FÄLLRÄVEN OUTDOOR: THE RIGHT GEAR FOR SHORT AND LONG ADVENTURES
