It can be hard to visualize what size Dry Sack would best fit your Zenbivy Bed. We've laid out a quick guide to hopefully make it a bit easier.
Below is a chart showing the Beds and which size Dry Sack we recommend for the best fit. Don't worry, with the recommended size there will still be room to throw in your Zenbivy Pillow and even a down jacket!
When paired with our Compression Caps, you can expect your Bed to compress down to roughly half the size of its recommended Dry Sack size.
That's totally up to you! Unlike all-in-one compression sacks, we made our Zenbivy Compression Caps an optional separate component because we understand it's all personal preference. Some people like to use them to keep their gear as small and compact as possible while others don't see a need to do so.
For those longer trips where you need to maximize the space in your pack, simply add on the Caps and tighten the straps to instantly shrink it down. Less space space taken up by gear means more space for snacks!
The short answer is no. Let us explain why.
If you're asking yourself, "What is an Inflation Sack??", an Inflation Sack is a dry sack included with our Light Mattress that allows you to easily inflate your mattress without having to blow into it.
While yes, you can absolutely use the Inflation Sack to store your Mattress, clothing, or other items, no, it's not ideal for compressing your Zenbivy Bed. Why? A main reason is that the air exit hole is on the bottom and the Compression Cap would cover it completely, preventing the air from escaping. Save yourself the headache. Our Zenbivy Dry Sack with the one-way, quick Air Dump valve on the side is the one you need in order to easily achieve a compact, tidy bundle of a Bed.
Well, we can show you better than we can tell you! Here's a great video to demonstrate how we do it.
When storing your Zenbivy, it's important to give it space. To protect the longevity of the down, you never want to store it fully compressed. Each Zenbivy Bed comes with a large mesh storage bag. When coming back from a trip, we'd recommend pulling your Zenbivy out of its Dry Sack as soon as you get home. If it's a nice sunny day, hang it up outside for a bit to air it out and let any moisture completely evaporate before storing it loosely in the mesh bag.
