Our Story

Zenbivy was founded with a clear mission to create the most comfortable outdoor bedding the world has ever seen. We believe no matter what type of outdoor adventure you seek you perform better when you’re truly rested. So why do so many sleeping bag companies ignore this fact? They design bags that are light and warm but lack the comfort you experience when sleeping in your bed at home.

Whether you like to sleep on your back, side, or stomach, whether you toss and turn or sleep like a rock, we believe a sleeping bag should conform to your sleeping habits rather than you having to conform to its limitations. Try sleeping in an ultralight mummy bag on your stomach or tossing and turning from side to side—the results are always the same; bags twist, bags constrict, bags lead to a less than comfortable night of sleep.

That's why we created our Beds, to let you sleep in any position you want. We created our Quilts to offer the most versatile sleeping options which can adapt to whatever situation you find yourself in. We created our pillows to adjust to the exact height and softness you desire. And we created our Mattresses, to offer warmth, comfort, and ease. We did all of this with the simple goal of letting you experience an amazing night of sleep—from the backcountry to the back of your car—just like your bed at home.



The Zenbivy Team

Mason Strehl

Marketing Manager

Mason Strehl is an avid outdoor adventurer, photographer, and storyteller based in Washington state. When he's not in the office, you can find him hiking in the backcountry, climbing peaks, or surfing. For most of the year, he’s traveling around and living out of his converted Toyota truck. He prioritizes gaining knowledge through experience and creating meaningful connections with others, whether that’s through his work or his words.

Mason has been with Zenbivy from the very beginning. He himself has logged over 800 nights in a Zenbivy Bed in almost every condition imaginable! From the ice fields of southern Patagonia to the Swedish Laplands, in the dry deserts of Arizona and through the rugged backcountry in his home state of Alaska, he shares the story of Zenbivy through his own adventures.

Kylie Torrence

Merchandising and Customer Service

Kylie is the newest member of the Zenbivy team. She handles our social media platforms and much of our customer service. In 2017 she spent 5 months hiking the Appalachian Trail, the 2,000-something mile long foot path stretching from Georgia to Maine. Originally from Georgia herself, she’s a recent transplant to Washington state. If you ask her why she moved, she'll say "for the mountains".



Mike Glavin

Zenbivy Founder

"Glavin" is no stranger to the outdoor industry. Prior to creating the Zenbivy Bed, he led some of the best brands in the game. You’re probably familiar with his a few of his inspirations such as the MSR® Hubba Hubba™, the GSI® Dualist™ and Sierra Designs® Backcountry Bed.

Before Zenbivy launched in 2017, he had spent 15 years striving towards the perfect mummy alternative that allows you to sleep in a bed like you do at home. As an avid backpacker himself, this was an endeavor he pursued in earnest at Sierra Designs while he was there, which resulted in the predecessors to the Zenbivy Bed: the Backcountry Bed and Backcountry Quilt.
