Is it a sleeping bag? A quilt? Uh huh.

Lightweight and ultra-compact, the quilt is a great option for hammocks, couches, campers or for ultra-lightweight backpackers who are counting the ounces.

At its core, the Zenbivy Bed is a backpacking quilt.  While quilts are generally favored by the ultralight crowd, they are also familiar and comfortable, since you interact with them like normal bed covers in your sleep. With regular covers, your movement is more natural, so you avoid the twisting and nylon-suffocation of a confining "sleeping bag." The result is less "wake ups" and a more restful night sleep. So while quilts may have been invented for backpacking, their design makes them comfortable enough that you can ditch that heavy rectangular bag while car camping. And versatile enough for so much more.

"If you want to shave weight, the top quilt functions on it's own. I'd happily take this on the Appalachian Trail if I thru hike it again."

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.
