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.
You don't have to choose between an ultralight pack or comfort at camp—the Light Bed gives you the best of both worlds. Our 2-piece sleeping bag combines the warmth and draft-free performance of a mummy bag with the luxurious comfort of a backpacking quilt. It's built to feel like your bed at home with a sheet below you and a quilt above so you can get a comfortable, natural night's sleep outdoors without the constriction of a mummy bag.
We've refined every aspect to save weight including using performance fabrics, high-quality down, and a unique ultra-secure hook and loop system to add versatility to the setup. We built the Light Bed for performance so you can go further outdoors in comfort.
The Light Bed 10° is WARM. It’s built for colder sleepers and those pushing the boundaries of “3-season”.
The Light Bed 10° includes the Light Quilt 10°, Light Sheet 10°, and an extra-large mesh bag for long-term storage. (Mattress, pillow, and compression sold separately)
Zipper-less Configuration — Sure, we were able to shed weight by going completely zipper-less, but that wasn’t the only perk. By equipping the Light Bed with a system of color-coded hooks & loops, you can attach the quilt to the sheet in multiple different “modes”, giving you even more versatility in how you choose to use it.
Comfortably Light Fabrics — You'll find that most down backpacking quilt makers shed weight by using thin, clingy 10d fabrics. We found more clever ways to ditch ounces while keeping the fabric a very smooth, comfy, and durable 20d. 20d fabrics are much softer than traditional ultralight tech fabrics while being only a fraction heavier. Definitely worth it!
The Kylie-curve™ — The Kylie-curve™ is a 3/4-length baffle-backed drawstring along the top of the quilt. The shortened drawstring length cinches only the center portion, so it softly seals around your neck but leaves the edges loose to either drape at your sides or tuck up into the sheet’s hood to block drafts.
Quality Insulation — The Light Bed is 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.
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.
Roomy Integrated Hood — Built for all sleep positions, the Light Sheet features a wide rectangular hood that provides extra space and restriction-free warmth around your head and arms. The hood also acts as a cubby to keep your camp pillow from wandering away in the middle of the night!
Light & Compact — Starting at just 2 lb 10 oz and compressing down to about 5-6L in size, the Light Bed 10° is the best choice if you're an avid backpacker looking for warmth and comfort at the lowest possible weight and bulk.
Weight (Quilt + Sheet) Regular-20x72: 2 lb 10 oz (1.19 kg) Large-20x72: 2 lb 15 oz (1.33 kg) Large-25x77: 3 lb (1.36 kg) XL-25x77: 3 lb 5 oz (1.50 kg)
Sizing Help Quilts are available in Regular, Large, or XL Sheets are available in 20x72 or 25x77 Please match the sheet size to the mattress you plan to use it on. See our Size Guide for more information.
Flat Quilt Dimensions* Regular: 78” x 54” (198 x 137cm) Large: 86” x 58” (218 x 147cm) XL: 90” x 64” (229 x 163cm) *Please note that the listed quilt dimensions are for the cut fabric. Filled, lofted quilts will be several inches smaller in both length and width.
Recommended Dry Sack Size The 10L Dry Sack will fit all sizes of the Light Bed 10°. You can expect your Light Bed to compress down to about half the size, or 5-6L. Dry Sacks are sold separately.
Unfortunately the 25x77 Light Sheet 10° and 25° are sold out for 2022. However, all Light Quilts work with all Light Sheets regardless of temperature rating.
We recommend checking out the 40º Synthetic sheet. Or you could check out the half-size Fast Sheet, which turns any of our quilts into a bed at only 3 ounces! Finally, you could also check out our Universal Sheet, which works with both Light Quilts and Zenbivy Bed quilt. All options shown below.
The Light Quilt uses a series of color-coded hooks and loops to form the footbox and attach the quilt to the sheet. This not only sheds the weight of heavy zippers, but gives you more versatility in how you choose to clip it!
The Light Quilt features a 3/4-length baffle-backed drawstring on the top edge. 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, softly sealing around your neck without shortening the overall usable width of the quilt.
Smooth Fabrics & Quality Down
No thin, clingy 10d fabrics here. We found more clever ways to ditch ounces while keeping the fabric a very smooth, comfy, and durable 20d.
The Light Quilts use top-shelf 800 fill-power HyperDRY™ down, using a natural wax-based compound to make it water resistant. It is durable, fluorocarbon-free, and RDS (Responsible Down Standard) compliant.
Light Sheet Features
By clipping the Light Quilt to the hinged “wings” of the Light Sheet, it's free to get wider where and when you need it to while preventing any possible drafts from the sides as you move. Then, just as instantly, the quilt "settles" to wrap snuggly around you.
Large Insulated Hood
Tuck in under the sheet's large hood to keep your head warm on cold nights. It's roomy and wide enough to fit the arms of stomach sleepers as well! The integrated hood doubles as a cubby to keep your camp pillow from wandering off in the middle of the night.
20d Nylon Taffeta Body
The Light Sheets are made with 20d nylon taffeta. This 20d fabric is buttery-soft and smooth against your skin. It's more comfortable than sleeping directly on the mattress and, as a bonus, it helps to keep your mattress cleaner for longer!
Our sheets are designed to fit most standard size mattresses on the market—both rectangular AND tapered styles! Our Light Sheets are available in 20x72 and 25x77. They will fit mattresses up to about 3.5" thick.
(Do you have a 25" x 72" Regular Wide pad? You'll want the 25x77 Light Sheet. There's an elastic strip along the bottom edge to take up any excess length and an adjustable strap on the back to cinch it in)

I've been waiting and saving for a long while. Finally got my Light Bed 10 degree. Just used it for first time at Lost Lake RMNP. It's the best sleep I've ever had back packing. I usually wake up several times a night and sometimes have a hard time getting back to sleep. The comfort and room of the quilt is amazing! I had consistent temp and sleep through the entire night both nights!
I used the 10 degree F light bed for a 40 day backpacking trip in the wind river range from June to July 2022; it was wicked comfortable and amazing. Super lightweight. I do not like traditional sleeping bags so when I found out about the zenbivy quilt system, I knew I wanted to try it. Very happy with how it performed and had no drafts at all. It packs down super well and is easy to set up. But since the sheet goes around the sleeping pad, the whole thing will follow you to an upright position if you sit up inside it. But wicked happy with this purchase. And loved I could unhook parts of the quilt from the sheet to allow more variety of sleeping positions and not feel so restricted like in a regular bag. Recommended it to several people already and hope to try more of their products in the future! Thanks guys!!
Just took it on my first trip in moderate temperatures of about mid 50 degrees Fahrenheit. I actually ended up using it as a blanket for me and my partner which worked very well. I'll update more in future trips!
Best Sleeping Bag/Quilt I have ever owned. I have used my Light 10 degree on a number of camp trips including temperatures between -10 and +38 degrees C (14 and 100 degree F) and it was amazing to be able to set the sleep system up in such a way that I could be comfortable through a large span of temperatures. Although I think I was pushing the limits of my sleep system in the +38 degree C (100 degree F) weather and I am looking at purchasing the Light Bed 40 for those hotter temperatures. I would highly recommend this sleep system to anyone, in fact I have suggested it to a number of friends, some of which have also made the purchase and have not looked back at their old sleep systems. I am 6 feet tall, 200 lbs and purchased the Large quilt and it fits amazing and I love this sleep system. If you are on the fence in regards to purchasing this sleep system.... STOP.... just buy it, you will not regret it at all.
