G-1000 is tough, but G-1000 Heavy Duty goes a step further. Impregnated with Greenland Wax on both sides, it takes durability to a new level. This does mean it’s less ventilating than regular G-1000, so we use it for products where resilience, rather than airflow, is a priority. This translates to reinforcement materials – on places that are susceptible to extra hard wear – and for many of our bags and backpacks. Where smoothness is required, we use G-1000 Heavy Duty Eco S. It’s slightly lighter than the regular version, due to a finer weave, and it’s made from recycled polyester and organic cotton.

As part of our commitment to using more recycled and organic materials, we now have an Eco version – made from recycled polyester and organic cotton – of G-1000 Heavy Duty. Find out how we work with sustainable materials here.
