As avid backpackers ourselves, our aim with the Zenbivy Light Bed was to give the backpacking community a lighter weight, more compact option without sacrificing the functionality, ease, and warmth of our original Zenbivy Bed. The result? A sleep system with even more versatility that's just as comfortable in your pack as it is in your tent.
Why do we sell the Zenbivy Light Bed in separate pieces? Well, we wanted to give ultralight backpackers the option to shed every ounce possible by using our Light Quilt on its own without integrating the sheet. To assemble your perfect Light Bed system, choose a Light Quilt and a Light Sheet. Add a Light Mattress, Pillow, and Dry Sack to complete your set up and you're ready to go!
The Light Bed is 20% Lighter than the original Zenbivy Bed and the patent pending zipper-less design means they can hang with the lightest quilts and mummy bags on the market.
We were able to shed weight by removing the zippers from both the quilt and the fitted sheet, but that isn't the only perk! By replacing the zippers with hooks & loops, you can now attach the quilt to the sheet in more ways than before. Scroll down to see the different "modes".
We want light, but let’s not get weird about it. Sure, we used top-shelf 800 fill power HyperDry down, but while other ultralight quilt makers decided to shed weight by making their fabric a super thin and clingy 10d, we opted to find clever ways to lose ounces while keeping the fabric a very soft and comfy 20d. You’re welcome.
The Zenbivy Light Bed packs down 20% smaller than the original Zenbivy Bed. Compact gear means more available space in your backpack for the important things. And by "the important things", we mean snacks.
What's in the blue Dry Sack? Our 25 degree Quilt, Sheet, and Pillow.
When it’s cold out, tuck in to Mummy Mode with the quilt fully attached to the sheet. Close the foot box at the bottom for a draft-free night's sleep.
The patent pending zipper-less foot box is just as secure as a zippered design. Don't believe us? Check it out here.
When fast and light is the objective, leave the sheet behind and sleep directly on your mattress. The foot box will still form without integrating the sheet and on warm nights you can open it up completely to simply use it as a blanket. Quilt Mode is also great in hammocks or at hostels.
