The sheet is sized to fit your mattress and the quilt is sized to fit you.
Locate your height on the ruler below to see which size quilt and sheet/mattress we recommend. 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.The chart below is based on the average weight for each height. Also note that if you are an "active" or "wide" sleeper (i.e. someone that moves around a lot), 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 because it is always free to wrap snuggly around you.Bigger is always more comfortable and just as warm.

Our 2-piece ultralight 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.
Fast Footbox™ vs. Convertible Footbox
The Fast Footbox™ is our simplest, lightest, and quickest. With a single clip and minimal fuss, it easily converts from warm “mummy mode” to spacious “wide mode”.
In addition to both mummy and wide modes, our Convertible Footbox also unclips to lay completely flat. The Convertible Footbox provides maximum versatility in warmer temperatures and when used with accessories.
Light Quilt Features
Hook & Loop Attachments
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!
The only lightweight all-season mattress that is quiet, easy to inflate, and WARM. The Light Mattress is built for undisturbed sleep with 180g of fully-baffled synthetic insulation. No crinkly chip bag sounds and no cold spots!
Includes an Inflation Dry Sack for fast, breath-free manual inflation and waterproof storage.
The 2-piece design of the Light Pillow is both lighter and more comfortable than other pillows on the market. Plus, the separate pillowcase is easy to wash and provides enough space to stuff extra clothing items inside to dial-in the softness and height at which you sleep best!
This quilt held up tremendously. Used it for a week and the temps were only down to mid-low 30s but I was sweating with the foot box closed up (and no pants). I would have no problems taking this into the teens. Slept great all week. I love the Zenbivy.
Before Zenbivy, I had never invested in a good quality sleep system and just settled for uncomfortable and ****** nights while sleeping outdoors. This sleep system changed on all that. I was super warm and comfortable all night. The convertible foot box is easy to use, and I even got it done in the dark. The adjustability is excellent as well. If I am cold, I can latch it all down. But, as I get warm, I can loosen everything up and let in the crisp night air as needed. I had a great experience and totally recommend this sleep system.
Pretty pricey at first...but...I had probably the best sleep while camping using the Zenbivy Light Bed! I am happy with this purchase and I look forward to many more great nights of sleep using this system. This was the 1st quilt bed I have had and it is way better then a mummy bag! I love having the convertible foot box quilt...you have lots of options.
I sleep as good in the backcountry as I do at home (maybe better).
As a side and stomach sleeper that rolls frequently, the Zen Bivy made all the difference for me. I could never get a good night sleep in a mummy bag. Now I sleep better than I ever have. Just got done with a 6-day trek in 50 degree temps and was a little worried about the 10 degree bag being too hot. But with a fast sheet (instead of my 10 degree sheet), opening the convertible footbox and unhooking one side of the quilt, I was able to easily regulate temperature in a way that is nearly impossible in a mummy bag. Any in colder temps it is just awesome with the 10 degree sheet. Very happy with the Zen Bivy.
My wife and I paired our 10 degree light beds with Big Agnes Rapide SL Mattresses. We bought them in March, and we have over 20 nights sleeping on them. In one word - Wow!
I've had all kinds of sleeping bags over fifty years. Most of those years were spent sleeping on either a foam mat or the self-inflatable Thermarest pad with plenty of couches mixed in. The only times I was really comfortable sleeping was when I was in a hammock. The rest of the time I slept OK and just accepted that camping meant that you're always less comfortable when trying to sleep.
There's no doubt about it - modern air mattresses are a big part of the comfort in this system. A traditional sleeping bag on a modern air mattress is a big improvement. However, the Light Bed combined with a quality air mattress rivals the comfort of sleeping in some of the best beds, even in terrible weather conditions.
With the air mattress/pad, you don't have any pressure points to cause aches and pains. With the innovative quilt, you can sleep in any position and change positions without a limit and without sliding off of your sleep pad. It's hard to explain how a person who is used to sleeping on a king sized select comfort bed is just as comfortable in this combination, but I am. It's to the point that when I visit someone overnight, if there are any limits on bed space, I'm the first to volunteer to sleep on the floor in this system. In truth, I prefer sleeping in this system to most guest beds - but sometimes people find it weird when you would rather sleep on the floor in a sleeping bag instead of on their bed.
The big challenge for most people is choosing between the 25 and 10 degree versions. My wife and I went with the 10 degree bags because she tends to sleep cold. For her the 10 degree quilt and quilt liner was the absolute correct choice. She has stayed warm and comfortable on nights that dipped down to the low 20s in the rain and wind, and had no trouble, when in the past she would have issues sleeping in a 0 degree bag on a traditional pad. I sleep warmer, so I'd like a little less weight and a little less bulk on typical warmer nights. Having said that, I still sleep comfortably because it doesn't take long to figure out how to adjust the different loops and catches to modify the bed for comfort in practically any temperature.
As it is, after a few nights sleeping with this system, it's pretty easy to stay comfortable and avoid sweating by tweaking connection points and the convertible foot box. I really love how versatile this system is and expect to get years of regular use from it.
Now I'm excitedly waiting for the new quilt liners. I think they will add more customizability to different temperatures while helping keep the quilt clean during most use cases.
