    Rago Superlight

    Our lightest three-season sleeping bag, with an excellent balance between warmth, weight and volume. Ideal for the gram counting outdoor enthusiast who needs to pack light, and still keep warm.

    The Rago Superlight sleeping bag build on the success of the Rago range, but with premium 800 FP goose down fill. The internal heat collar has been ergonomically shaped for a better fit, and all the details designed to reduce weight without compromising dependability. Weighing in at only 780 grams for a T-LIM -8 degrees Celsius sleeping bag, this featherweight will quickly become your favourite accessory on spring and autumn hikes.

    The Rago-series is designed to optimise the heat efficiency of a sleeping bag. We have strategically placed insulation to concentrate warmth where you need it the most. To minimize cold spots the down is distributed in an efficient manner, and the snug fit around your body is an important feature that helps you keep warm. The devil is in the details, and we’ve done our research to get the best fit for you. The water repellent outer shell resists down de-lofting and keeps your sleeping bag fluffier and warmer for longer.

    The sleeping bag comes in two sizes, standard (185 cm) and long (200 cm).

      1. What's the european temperature rating?

        Since 2012 Helsport has used the European standard EN13537 to rate its
        sleeping bags. This standard allows comparisons amongst sleeping bags from
        different producers.

      2. What does the temperature values: TCOMF, TLIM and TEXT mean?

        It is important to know that the temperature rating is valid for an average
        person, in an average situation. When you are out hiking, no single trip is the
        same. People react differently to cold, levels of fitness can vary, and the
        surroundings will change every time.

        • TCOMF: the green zone is called the "comfort zone", and in this
          temperature range most people will be able to sleep comfortably.
        • TLIM: the yellow zone is called a "transition zone", between comfort and
          risk. Many people can sleep comfortably in this temperature range, but
          some may also start to freeze.
        • TEXT: The red zone is the "risk zone" and, in this range, a strong
          sensation of cold has to be expected. There is a risk of hypothermia. An
          average-sized woman can only tolerate this zone for six hours.
      3. Synthetic or down?

        There are no hard and fast rules here, and what type of sleeping bag is right for
        you will depend on what type of trips you’ll be using it for, your personal
        preference and your budget.

         

        High-quality down sleeping bags will always be warmer relative to their weight
        than synthetic sleeping bags. The lifespan of the two types is roughly the
        same. Down sleeping bags are more demanding with regard to correct
        maintenance and storage (they should be stored in the storage bag or hung
        up).

         

        Synthetic bags insulate better than down bags when wet. Luckily, it’s rare for a
        sleeping bag to get soaking wet, but it’s something that’s worth bearing in
        mind when choosing a sleeping bag. Regardless of how well a sleeping bag
        insulates, it’s no fun sleeping in a wet bag.

      4. Can I wash my sleeping bag?

        You certainly can wash your sleeping bag, but you shouldn’t do it too often.
        Using a sleeping bag liner that can be washed often is a good alternative.
        A sleeping bag liner does not only protect your sleeping bag, it’s also very
        comfortable and can increase the temperature limit of your sleeping bag by
        up to 8 degrees.

        Sleeping bags can be washed at 40 °C with a low spin. It’s important to use a
        detergent especially adapted for sleeping bags in order to avoid residue
        building up in the filling. Synthetic sleeping bags can be washed at 60 °C,
        although this will shorten the product’s lifespan. Again, we recommend using
        a liner instead and washing it more frequently if required.

        Always tumble-dry your sleeping bag. It’s a good idea to put some tennis balls
        or special dryer balls in the drum to help “fluff up” the bag’s filling again.

      RDS - Responsible Down Standard

      All Helsport down sleeping bags use only down which is certified according to the Responsible Down Standard. 

      The Responsible Down Standard aims to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to an unnecessary harm, and at the same time, provide retailers and consumers with greater confidence in responsible sourcing. RDS certified down is a by-product from the food industry, and are not plucked from live birds.

      The goal of the Responsible Down Standard is to ensure that the water fowl in the down supply chain are treated humanely. RDS requires independent, third-party assesments of all aspects of animal rearing and handling throughout the entire supply chain.
