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.
Questions? We're happy to help. Let us know your height, weight, and general sleep style and we'll help you find the right size for you.
The sheet is sized to fit your mattress, whether it's one of ours or your current mattress. Our sheets fit both rectangular and tapered mattresses. Note on 4-inch mattresses: our sheets will fit 4-inch thick mattresses with rounded sides, but they do not work on 3D vertical side wall mattresses that are 4" or greater.
DESIGN UPDATE: We are currently in the process of transitioning our fitted sheets over to an adjustable design to accommodate different mattress lengths. These sheets will be named 20", 25", and 30".
20" sheets will fit mattresses up to 20" x 72" x 3.5"
25" sheets will fit mattresses up to 26" x 78" x 3.5" (including 25x72 mattresses!)
30" sheets will fit mattresses up to 30" x 80" x 3.5"
See measurements for max shoulder/hip/foot circumference of each size Bed, along with the dimensions of just the quilt itself.
Find your Bed on the image below and match it to its recommended Dry Sack size. Don't worry, with the recommended size there will still be room to throw in your Zenbivy pillow and even a down jacket. You can expect your Bed to compress down to about half the size of its recommended Dry Sack. (Ex: 7L compresses down to 3-4L, 10L down to 5L, etc)
The zipperless design of the Light Quilt gives you the weight of a closed foot box quilt, with the full-flat functionality of a convertible quilt. Zenbivy’s buttery soft 20d fabrication sets this quilt apart from its more “purist” 10d competitors. It is the softest and most durable legitimately ultralight quilt out there.
The Light Quilt 40° has a 1d/3d polyester synthetic blend insulation that’s so soft you'll swear it's down. It’s just as light and packable as our 25° down quilt, but built for warmer nights and tighter budgets. Add a Light Sheet 40° to create a complete synthetic Light Bed with even more comfort options.
Includes the Light Quilt and a large mesh bag for long-term storage. (Dry Sack and Compression Caps sold separately).
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.
Quality Insulation - Built for warmer nights and tighter budgets, we've used a 1d/3d polyester synthetic blend that is as soft as it gets. It's the next best thing to down!
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.
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.

Great piece of gear. Now I’m waiting for the 10° Light Bed to be available
After years of pillows falling off my camp bed and fighting with my sleeping bag and liner, I slept like a bug in a rug. Wonderful combination, as temperature changes so does the system. Thanks also for the great service. Your communication is fantastic. Happy New Year from New Zealand
Very well made. Wound up using this on top of my 20 degree quilt this weekend, when temps dipped into the teens (Fahrenheit) and it was perfect. Can’t wait to use it this summer. It’s extremely versatile.
Light Quilt 40° Synthetic actual dimensions are L72" X W44.5". Why! is it so hard to put exact lofted dimensions?? They are not kidding when they say several inches smaller. I have broad shoulders, and the quilt does not touch the ground on one side. Now the sale is over, and they are out of larger sizes. Confused and frustrated.
Hi Matthew, So sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the product. It is common in the industry for backpacking quilt dimensions to be measured this way (cut but not filled). We make sure to note right below the dimensions in both the specs and on our size guide the following — "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." Apologies again for the confusion! We have just approved your return request now.
Got this for Bikepacking. Needed something to pack down small, but still provide a lot of flexibility and comfort when camping. This gets pretty small, but is like a brick when it's cinched down with the compression straps. Love the overall design. Get a good pillow!! Works with the Sea to Summit Comfort Plus sleeping pad, just FYI. Can't wait to go camping in slightly colder weather to see how we do!! Pretty sure it will work great.
