The Arktis is a longer length winter 'Parka' style jacket that can be worn with confidence in the coldest of conditions on the toughest of expeditions. The tough G- 1000® fabric is probably one of the best outdoor fabrics in the marketplace, a mix of polyester and cotton that traps in warmth while allowing your body to breathe. G-1000® can be impregnated, very simply, with wax for varying degreees of weatherproofing.
With enough pockets of varying sizes, depths and materials this parka allows you to keep essentials on your person with less often required kit held within your rucksack - great to minimise effort and speed up access to hydration and navigation items you'll need regularly.
As a piece designed for the 'Polar' environment not only will you remain warm and dry but this luxury garment will stand you well in truly testing arctic conditions without compromising on style.
After the Greenland Expedition in 1966 it became obvious that the selection of quality outdoor clothing on the market was severely limited. By using a specially developed material that had been too heavy to use for his lightweight tents, Fjallraven's founder, Åke Nordin, sewed the first Fjallraven garments.
With the addition of a mixture of beeswax and paraffin, the material demonstrated properties that were excellent for the outdoors. The material was named G-1000, after the Greenland Expedition. The wax was named Greenland Wax. Since then this combination has proven its excellence on a countless number of adventures.
Be prepared for adventures in all climates With G-1000, from the tropics to the polar caps this fabric is designed to hold its own in the most testing of conditions. G-1000 is proven to withstand many years of tough use far from the beaten path and, given its adaptability, makes it arguably one of the best outdoor fabrics on the market.
G-1000 is Fjallraven's own functional fabric. The tight weave is impregnated with Greenland Wax. This blend makes the fabric extremely durable, breathable, wind and water restistant. With Greenland Wax you can adapt your garment to current weather conditions.
Greenland Wax is a biodegradeable product made of bees wax and paraffin.Particularly important is the fact that you can easily adapt the impregnation of your garment to the current weather conditions by adding (or removing) Fjällräven's environmentally friendly Greenland Wax - take a peak at our video link to see just how easy this is or read on below.
