Locate your height on the ruler below to see which size quilt and sheet/mattress we recommend for you. Ideally, you'll want to fall somewhere in the middle of the range. If you find yourself in the yellow, you'll probably want to size up for the most comfortable fit.Please note that the chart below is based on the average weight for each height. Also note that if you are an "active" or "wide" sleeper, you may want to consider sizing up to allow yourself more space to sleep naturally.
When in doubt, size up. Unlike mummy bags, there is no thermal disadvantage to a larger size Zenbivy Bed because it is always free to wrap snugly around you. Bigger is always more comfortable and just as warm. Questions? We're happy to help. Send us an email with your height, weight, and general sleep style and we'll help you find the right size for you.
The versatile, minimalist design of a backpacking quilt makes it an ideal choice for anyone wanting to reduce the weight and bulk of their sleep system. The zipperless Zenbivy Light Quilt is lightweight and compact but prioritizes both comfort and adaptability. Between our super soft 20d fabric, convertible draft-free zipper-less foot box, carefully engineered baffle system, and pure semi-rectangular shape, we’re certain our Light Quilt is not only the most versatile quilt on the market but the most comfortable as well. Premium 800 fill-power HyperDRY™ down rounds out the package and delivers a final quilt that is weight competitive with much more expensive offerings while delivering on Zenbivy’s promise of maximum comfort. From tent to hammock, hostel to home, the Light Quilt’s got you covered.
The Light Quilt 10° is WARM. It’s built for colder sleepers and those pushing the boundaries of “3-season”. Add a Light Sheet 10° to create a complete Bed that allows you to fully clip in when temperatures drop.
Includes the Light Quilt and a large mesh bag for long-term storage.
The Kylie-curve™ - The 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 Light Quilt cinches only the center portion, so it softly seals around your neck but doesn't shorten the overall usable width of the quilt. By cinching only the center, either edge of the quilt is left loose to drape at your sides to block drafts as you move and turn over.
Thermally Mapped Baffles — We designed our quilts to maximize thermal efficiency, distributing down to provide the most warmth where it’s needed. 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.
Zipperless Versatility - The patented zipperless foot box design is every bit as secure as a zippered foot box, without the weight of zippers. It forms using a few simple hooks and loops, with a snap and a drawstring to easily regulate your sleep temperature. Sinch the bottom closed on cold nights, or loosen it to allow a cool draft or unhook it completely to use it flat like a blanket on warmer nights.
Purely Semi-Rectangular - The Light Quilt is purely semi-rectangular. This not only provides full coverage when used flat but completely eliminates the common hour-glassing pinch point issue that other quilts have when the foot box is formed. Rotate and move freely at night without the quilt grabbing and twisting around.
Quality Materials - The Light Quilts are filled with premium 800 fill-power HyperDRY™ down. This down uses a natural wax-based compound to make it water resistant. It is durable, fluorocarbon-free, and RDS (Responsible Down Standard) compliant.
Unconventional Fabric - Most ultralight quilt makers shed weight by making their fabric a thin and clingy 10d. We opted to find clever ways to ditch ounces while keeping the fabric a very soft, comfy, and durable 20d. 20d fabrics are much softer than traditional ultralight technical fabrics while only being a fraction heavier.

I recently took a Zen Bivy 10° rated set up on a climbing expedition to the Ak su valley of Kyrgyzstan. Our base camp was at 10,000ft & I slept in it for 17 days straight! I even brought it up on a wall for a two night bivy at 14,000ft. It exceeded all expectations and kept me extremely comfortable, 10/10 would recommend!
Finally got the opportunity to try my Zenbivy 10 bed on a recent backpacking trip. I suffer from claustrophobia and was hoping this was the solution for me when tenting in the backcountry. Indeed it was! Would purchase it again and again. My friend who was sharing my tent got very cold from an ill fitted sleeping bag. Once I knew this I was able to undo the clips on my quilt and share my quilt with her. She was so comfy she slept for 3 more solid hours, warm and toasty. Now she is looking to buy a Zenbivy of her own. Thanks for creating such a great sleep system. Can't wait try get back out in the woods and try it again.
The quilt is super fluffy and comfortable. I like the button up system although it has not yet been cold enough to use this quilt. I could not fit it in my backpack, however since it did not come with a compression pack and is much to large for the pack I use for my 30 degree sleeping bag. Not sure how I will be able to use this for backpacking in the future
Recently took this product with the Light Sheet 10 as well, to a short backpacking trip in moderate temperatures. Because I got the larger size, and it was not too cold, my partner and I were able to use it as a blanket at night making it feel super comfortable. I'll update the review after some more trips but I am sure I will love it.
