On the chart below, locate your height and overarm measurement. To get your overarm measurement, stand with your hands by your sides and measure around the broadest part of your chest and arms.
Regular, Large, and XL refer to the quilt size 20", 25", and 30" refer to the sheet size
If you are an "active" sleeper or have a "wide" sleep position, consider sizing up to accommodate your sleep style.When in doubt, size up. Unlike mummy bags, there's no thermal disadvantage to a larger size Zenbivy because the quilt is always free to wrap snuggly around you. Bigger is always more comfortable and just as warm.

Zenbivy sheets are designed to fit most standard size mattresses on the market, in both rectangular and tapered styles.

The Core Quilt is Zenbivy's simplest, softest, and most affordable backpacking quilt. Without zippers or a complex convertible footbox, the Core Quilt's simple patent-pending Fast Footbox™ utilizes just one hook to quickly transform the footbox from "mummy mode" for maximum warmth to “wide mode” for maximum space. The soft 50D Pongee liner and supple new 30D Taffeta shell provide maximum home-like comfort in the backcountry.
Includes the Core Quilt 10° and a large mesh bag for long-term storage. Mattress and accessories sold separately.
Fast Footbox™ — Without zippers or a complex convertible footbox, the Core Quilt's simple patent-pending Fast Footbox™ technology utilizes just one hook to quickly transform the footbox from "mummy mode" for maximum warmth to “wide mode” for maximum space.
Clip Closures — To keep things lightweight and minimal, the Core Quilt uses our proven clip system to connect the backpacking quilt to a separate fitted Core Sheet and ensure a draft-free night of sleep. Core Sheet sold separately.
Soft, Durable Fabrics — To maximize comfort, the Core Quilt features our legendary soft sheet-like 50D Pongee liner and a new amazingly supple and durable 30D Taffeta shell.
The Kylie-curve™ — The patent-pending Kylie-curve™ is a 3/4 length baffle-backed drawstring on the top edge of our quilts. Unlike traditional backpacking quilts that have a drawstring spanning the entire width, the shortened cord length on the Zenbivy quilt cinches only the center portion. It softly seals around your neck while leaving either edge loose to drape at your sides or tuck up into the fitted sheet's hood to block drafts.
Thermally Mapped Baffles — We designed our quilts to maximize thermal efficiency, distributing down to provide warmth where it’s needed most. Smaller baffles minimize down-shift, vertical baffles around the upper body prevent down from sliding, and horizontal baffles on the top of the foot box keep down from shifting with foot movement.
RDS Compliant Down — The Core Quilts are filled with premium 650 fill-power down from Allied. This down is RDS (Responsible Down Standard) compliant.

Soft, Durable Fabrics
With its legendary soft sheet-like 50D Pongee liner and a new amazingly supple and durable 30D Taffeta shell, the Core Bed features our softest fabrics yet!
The 3/4 length baffle-backed Kylie-curve™ drawstring comfortably seals in warmth around your shoulders but leaves the edges free to drape at your sides or tuck around you.
Pairing your Core Quilt with one of our Core Sheets allows you to fully "tuck in" when temperatures drop. Hooking the quilt to the fitted sheet protects against drafts and keeps you (and your quilt) on the mattress. Plus, the hood acts as a cubby to keep your pillow in place all night long.
Our soft Pongee Core Sheets are available with an insulated hood for full "mummy bag" warmth, or with a lighter-weight uninsulated hood for use in warmer weather or paired with an insulated hooded jacket.
I just had my first camping trip with my new ZenBivy Core Quit sleeping system. I am a side sleeper and turn from side to side many times throughout the night. This new sleep system is awesome and I had my best night of sleep while camping ever. With the 10 degree quilt and an outside temp of only the mid 30s, I was hot and slept only in shorts and a t-shirt. Great product and I only wish I had made this purchase sooner!
We recently took up hiking at the age of 60 and our biggest concern was how we were going to sleep. After an inordinate number of YouTube videos, we settled on the Zenbivy sleep system.
The weather was atrocious for all seven days of our hike but I can honestly say that in spite of the rain, cold and wind we were warm and very comfortable. (Durston Gear X-Mid tent kept us dry - another excellent purchase). We love the Zenbivy sleep system and I cant wait for our next big hiking adventure.
Let's start with ordering and delivery: Kylie was superb at providing support and answering questions, and my order left USA on a Saturday and was delivered to me (in the UK) at 0930 on the following Tuesday - that's quick!
My 10deg Core bed is very well made, super soft fabric, and offers features and convenience that just aren't possible with a sleeping bag. As a side-sleeper, this is an absolute game changer. If I were Zenbivy, I'd look for a UK/Europe stockist....
