    Trollheimen Superlight Winter

    The Trollheimen superlight range offers thermal efficient and lightweight synthetic fiber bags. With the new Thermolite T3 Ecomade fiber and shingle construction we have designed a synthetic sleeping bag that is highly compressible which provides superior sleeping comforts. The Trollheimen Superlight range are perfect for weight-consciousness adventurers who travels in damp climates or wet conditions. This synthetic sleeping bag is also perfect for those who sleep in a hammock, under a tarp or under the stars. Synthetic fiber is also a great option for those who are allergic to down.

    We have implemented our well-known thermal efficiency fit, which eliminates all cold spots in the sleeping bag and that results in exceptional warmth-to-weight-ratio for a synthetic sleeping bag. This is the closest you get a down sleeping bag, but still a synthetic.

    The Shingle construction uses overlapping pieces of fiber blanket instead of a single sheet. This allows for greater freedom of movement and also traps additional warm air between the layers. The new ecofiber is extremely compressible and has a comfortable down feeling. We selected the partially recycled synthetic fill that nonetheless meets our demanding standards of thermal efficiency. The Thermolite T3 Ecomade is made with innovative fibers for improved insulation values and better breathability than standard synthetic fiber.

    The Trollheimen SL-range comes in two versions, standard and winter, and both models are available in a standard and lady version. In the lady version we ́ve added extra insulation in the foot-end for increased warmth and comfort.

      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.
