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.
The versatile, minimalist design of a backpacking quilt makes it an ideal choice for anyone wanting to reduce the weight and bulk of their sleep system. The zipperless Zenbivy Light Quilt is lightweight and compact but prioritizes both comfort and adaptability. Between our super soft 20d fabric, convertible draft-free zipper-less foot box, carefully engineered baffle system, and pure semi-rectangular shape, we’re certain our Light Quilt is not only the most versatile quilt on the market but the most comfortable as well. Premium 800 fill-power HyperDRY™ down rounds out the package and delivers a final quilt that is weight competitive with much more expensive offerings while delivering on Zenbivy’s promise of maximum comfort. From tent to hammock, hostel to home, the Light Quilt’s got you covered.
Includes the Light Quilt and a large mesh bag for long-term storage.
The Kylie-curve™ - The Kylie-curve™ is a 3/4-length baffle-backed drawstring on the top edge of our quilts. Unlike traditional backpacking quilts that have a drawstring spanning the entire width, the shortened cord length on the Light Quilt cinches only the center portion, so it softly seals around your neck but doesn't shorten the overall usable width of the quilt. By cinching only the center, either edge of the quilt is left loose to drape at your sides to block drafts as you move and turn over.
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.
Zipperless Versatility - The patented zipperless foot box design is every bit as secure as a zippered foot box, without the weight of zippers. It forms using a few simple hooks and loops, with a snap and a drawstring to easily regulate your sleep temperature. Sinch the bottom closed on cold nights, or loosen it to allow a cool draft or unhook it completely to use it flat like a blanket on warmer nights.
Purely Semi-Rectangular - The Light Quilt is purely semi-rectangular. This not only provides full coverage when used flat but 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.
Quality Materials - The Light Quilts are 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.
Unconventional Fabric - Most ultralight quilt makers shed weight by making their fabric a thin and clingy 10d. We opted to find clever ways to ditch ounces while keeping the fabric a very soft, comfy, and durable 20d. 20d fabrics are much softer than traditional ultralight technical fabrics while only being a fraction heavier.

I have camped for years, and always used a sleeping bag. Until Nemo (Disco) and Feathered Friends finally made "women's bags," meaning they were somewhat wider where my knee could go, I slept poorly in the outdoors. Very poorly. But, along came Zenbivy with their Light Bed, and wow! Revolution! I really was hesitant about the whole quilt fanaticism people have lately, because I sleep really cold. But, my hatred of sleeping bags got me to try a Zenbivy Light Bed.(I paired it with my existing STS Ether Light XT pad). I'm so very glad I did. I had a chance to try it on a recent trip and it was marvelous. It is almost as good as sleeping in my bed at home. I used the "rectangular" footbox configuration, but the fully closed footbox would be good if it was colder. I have the Light Bed 25degree quilt, paired with the 10degree sheet. This wasn't by design, but just what was in stock. It worked great. The temperature got down to low forties (F) and I was plenty warm. I loved the flexibility of being able to treat it like a blanket early in the night, but later, being able to wrap it more around me for warmth. I do think that, for me, this system would only go down to a minimum of about 35degrees (not 25), but that's because I sleep cold. Maybe I will spring for the 10degree quilt at a later date. Until then, I love the Zenbivy Light Bed! I'm a convert and I see more and more people on forums commenting that they feel the same way. Thank you for making this product! Now, if it was only a tad lighter in weight...heh.
The freedom to move, stretch, poke a foot out to regulate my temperature, waking up without a sore back... I can't decide what my favorite aspect of the Light Bed is. Also, it packs up so small! I'm a convert and I can't wait to go backpacking again!
