Helsport was established in 1951, and throughout the past 60 years, we've learned what it takes to make some of the best tents and sleeping bags in the world. We developed our first sleeping bags in 1954, launched our first tent in 1957, and have shown innovation in our use of details, fabrics and other materials. We created the world's first tunnel tent in 1970, and have since then set several international standards in development. With pride we can tell you that we received or first design award in 1968 and most recently in 2013. Helsport is a proud part of Brav. HQ is in Melhus, Trondheim, Norway.
