Inflating your Flex™ Mattress the first time:
Because the mattress was super-deflated right after manufacturing, it will need help inflating the first time.  Inflate it by mouth until it is very firm to fully expand the foam.  Ideally, you would let it sit like this overnight to let the foam fully expand. After that, you will notice it will self inflate normally.
Storing your Flex™ Mattress:
Note that your mattress will self inflate much more quickly if you store it with the valve completely open with he mattress completely flat.  Most people can’t store it that way, though, so in that case roll it up lightly, not folded, and store it with the valve open.
To inflate:
  1. Pull the valve completely out and allow the mattress at least 15 minutes to self inflate.Zenbivy Flex™ Mattress with valve completely open for deflation and self-inflation
  2. Insert the valve with the green center button facing out (the large, circular part of the green valve will be inside the mattress)Zenbivy Flex™ Mattress valve with green button facing outwards for inflation
  3. Top off with air by blowing into the valve.
  4. Lay on the mattress on your side, push the green valve to slowly deflate until your hip just bottoms out, so you are using the full depth of the foam.  This is a great starting position to determine how firm or soft the mattress should be to work best for you.  Note that most people tend to run the mattress too firm.  Softer is generally more comfortable even if you sleep on a firm mattress at home.  Experiment to determine what works best for you.
  5. Secure the valve with the outer cap.  Note if you want to adjust the pressure after the outer cap is attached, you will need to hold the valve in place when removing the cap to avoid pulling the valve completely out.Zenbivy Flex™ Mattress with valve closed
To deflate:
  1. Pull the valve completely out.
  2. Loosely roll the mattress (without folding) and push out as much air as possible.  
  3. Kneel on the mattress to keep the air out while inserting the valve with the large round circular part of the valve on the outside, and the green button facing to the inside of the mattress.Zenbivy Flex™ Mattress valve with the green button facing inwards for deflation
  4. Unroll the mattress and fold it in half.
  5. Tightly roll the mattress, pushing out any remaining air.
  6. Secure the valve with the outer cap.

Size Guide

Unlike mummy bags, there is no thermal disadvantage to a larger size Zenbivy Bed because it is always free to wrap snugly around you. So bigger is always more comfortable and just as warm. If you are an "active" sleeper or have a "wide" sleeping position, you may want to size up to sleep naturally. When in doubt, size up.
