Let's face it, the versatility of a backpacking quilt is hard to beat! From hammocks to hostels, campfires to sunset spots, quilts provide easy, portable, lightweight warmth. Here are 4 ways to use your Zenbivy Quilt this fall... outside the tent!
1. In case of emergency
Keep your Zenbivy quilt in your car, especially if you live in a place where the weather is unpredictable. As we get further into the season, you never know when you might need it. If you're keeping it in your car long-term over the colder months, it's best to store in loose in the large mesh bag it came in. But if you're bringing it along on a shorter road trip, it's okay to temporarily compress it in a dry sack to save on space. Either way, just toss it in your trunk and if you ever do end up needing it, you'll be so glad you have it!
2. Around the House
Whether you're curling up on the couch with a book or building a good ol' fashioned blanket fort in the living room, your backpacking quilt is just as useful around the house as it is on adventures. Throw your sleeping bags out on the floor for movie night or wrap your camp quilt around you while you work from home for a little reminder of the great outdoors.
3. Outdoor Sports
If you're heading out to watch the big game or just taking it to little league soccer practice, a little extra warmth this fall can go a long way. Bring your quilt along and stay toasty warm while you cheer on your team.
4. A Guest Blanket
Having an extra warm, cozy blanket to offer to a guest is arguably the best way to make someone feel comfortable and welcome in your home.

Whether you've been a long-time supporter of Zenbivy or you're new to the community, we appreciate you being here and joining our peaceful little rebellion against traditional outdoor gear. We’ve got several exciting new plans for 2023 and we figured it’s only fair we give you a little sneak peek at what’s to come...
We’re firm believers in comfort. However, we also understand that lightweight gear is essential for backpackers. So, our quilts are light… but they’re not the lightest. Here’s what makes our quilts slightly heavier than other backpacking quilts on the market, and why those features are not only intentional but worth the weight.
Traditional quilts typically have a strap system to keep the quilt on the mattress. These straps are not only constricting but also drafty, letting cold air in at the gaps between the attachment points when the straps inevitably twist and spin. The Fast Sheet easily solves these problems!
