How to wax
Adaptable for a lifetime in nature
G-1000 fabric can be adapted with Greenland Wax to
suit different weather conditions and activities. Adding
more wax increases the fabric’s water and wind resistance
as well as the durability and lifetime of the garment.
In warmer conditions, the wax can be easily washed out for
cooler, more breathable clothing.
Applying wax creates a denser fabric that can better withstand wind and rain. It also increases your garment’s durability and lifespan. Apply the wax to the fabric using long strokes, leaving behind a thin, even layer.
Use low to moderate heat. Melt the wax onto the fabric using an iron on the no-steam setting. You can also use a hairdryer.
Apply several times to surfaces that need extra impregnation, such as shoulders, knees, the rear and other exposed areas. In warm climates, the wax can simply be washed out to create a cooler garment with better breathability.
