If you’re looking for a comfy bag that’s not only amazing at a developed campground but is light and compact enough for backcountry backpacking, this is the bed for you! Sleep in any position and in the widest range of temperatures—zipped up and tucked-in on cold nights, un-zipped and untucked on warm nights. The original Zenbivy Bed is the ultimate in camping comfort.
This is no dumbed-down synthetic like most brands offer. This bed features the exact build and the same buttery-soft fabrics as the down version. We use a 1d/3d polyester synthetic that is as soft as it gets. Then we spec’d a slightly higher rating to minimize the synthetic weight penalty. All-in-all, it’s as comfortable and as backcountry-worthy as the original.
Includes the fitted sheet, convertible top quilt, and large mesh bag for long-term storage. (Mattress, pillow, and dry sack sold separately).
Purely Semi-Rectangular Quilt - The Zenbivy Bed quilt is purely semi-rectangular. This not only provides full coverage when used flat but this new design completely eliminates the common hour-glassing pinch point issue that other quilts have when the foot box is formed. Rotate and move freely at night without the quilt grabbing and twisting around.
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.
Roomy, Integrated Hood - The wide rectangular hood provides extra space and restriction-free warmth around the head and arms for all sleep positions. The new width of the integrated hood makes better use of rectangular mattresses and keeps the pillow from wandering away in the middle of the night.
Quality Insulation - The next best thing to down! We use a 1d/3d polyester synthetic that is as soft as it gets.
Unconventional Lining - Our legendary Pongee fabric is both durable and soft. But most importantly, it has a similar feel to a sheet you would use at home, bringing a familiar kind of can’t-beat-it comfort to camp.
Freedom To Move - Never slide off your mattress again. When the top quilt is zipped to the "wings" of the fitted sheet, the Zenbivy Bed is instantly free to get wider when and where you need it to. Then just as instantly, it "settles" to wrap snugly around you.
Versatile Foot Box - The convertible foot box allows you to easily regulate your sleeping temperature. On a cold night, zip and cinch it completely shut to keep your feet toasty warm. Mild evening? Leave the bottom open to allow a cool draft. When it's warm out, simply unzip the foot box and use the quilt as a blanket.
Storage Pocket - The handy pocket at the top of the hood makes it easy to find your phone, watch, or small flashlight at night.

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.

This is a very cozy bag and good warmth for its light weight and packability. I look forward to using it camping. I did not know it had zippers, which means I can’t switch it around with other zenbivy quilts.
I sleep in the recovery position - basically on my side with one knee up. I rarely get a good nights sleep while camping since even with rectangle bags I can’t sleep in the position I do when at home in my bed. Until now. The quality, the design and… the sleep! 5 stars
My Coachmen Galleria 24A class B motorhome has twin bunks, basically the size of a sleeping pad but 4" memory foam cushions with an asymmetrically angled foot. The beds are designed to recline electrically, so there's an awkward hinge in the hip area that regular sheets don't like. The Zenbivy sheet fits it perfectly. The stretchy parts mold around the weird angle, and the fact that it hooks around the corners and not in the middle works perfectly with the hinge area.
The downsides: The least insulated Zenbivy they offer, 29 degrees is way too warm for an inside bunk in a heated RV. And the colors are inappropriate for my lovely silver Mercedes van. I went with the black and red combination and will add some red accents around the van to pull it together. I'm not in love with the way the bed zips together. It's a great design for a tent but messy for an indoor bed. I would have liked to be able to zip it to the sheet all the way around the foot end to make it appear a bit more trim and "made up" like a regular bed.
I would have preferred a 60 degree bag with a nice silver-gray color option, but I'm not dinging any stars for those things, since that's not what the Zenbivy was made for. Nobody cares what color the sleeping bags are in their tent, and 29 degrees is just fine for sleeping outdoors.
These would be incredibly nice for car camping in a tent. If I'm not sleeping in my camper van, I'm backpacking in a hammock. These would never do for that, they're way too heavy and completely unsuited to a hammock. In my opinion, even the Zenbivy light is too heavy for backpacking. However, I'm rating it 4 stars for its intended purpose, car camping in a tent.
Zenbivy, if you're listening, you might find a rich market for a 60 degree Zenbivy in decorator colors. Many small motorhomes, trailers and even boats have weird beds that are pushed up against walls and we're all struggling to find the right bedding. Maybe even modify the design to zip all the way around from left side across the foot and back up the right in a U shape. That way it will accommodate wherever the walls end up relative to the bed.
This bed is very comfortable and fits the mattress perfectly. My only complaint is being very cold at temperatures in the high 30s and low 40s, despite wearing thermal long johns and extra fleece on my torso. After the first night I bought a down jacket to wear inside the bag in order to be warm enough. We were car camping in northern Arizona at 7000 ft. altitude in mid-May.
