  Take a tour of the Zenbivy Bed

 

  Is it a sleeping bag?  A quilt?  Uh huh.

The Zenbivy Bed is not just the most comfortable backcountry sleeping bag, it’s a boss of a quilt in its own right. Lightweight and ultra-compact, the quilt is a great option for hammocks, couches, campers or for ultra-lightweight backpackers who are counting the ounces.

Quilts are perfect hammock companions.

Use the quilt separately, anywhere, anytime.

 How it works:

Pillow fits snuggly in the hood.

It isn’t just the cushiest most comfortable place to rest your head, the seamless integration of our pillow and hood means never having to deal with it sliding off the pad.

The fitted sheet and straps secure the bed firmly to the pad.

By firmly securing the fitted sheet to the mattress you can rest easy—your nights spent sliding off the mattress are over.

 

 

Left AND right zippers are the key to versatility. 

No matter the temperature, no matter the position, the Zenbivy Bed has been designed with both left and right side zippers to let you sleep exactly how you want to.

 

 

When unzipped, the wide design of the quilt and flaps won’t gap or open like a mummy bag. Plus, it’s big enough to allow for some serious cuddle time.

Footbox can be zipped or unzipped to allow natural sprawling.

The convertible foot box offers the ultimate in versatility. When its cold out keep both feet in—cool out, easily put one in/one out, both in/both out—and if it’s warm out simply unzip the foot box and use the quilt like a blanket. On a bed, in a hammock or anyplace else. 

 

 

 The hood offers more than added warmth.

The real secret to the Bed’s backcountry sauce is found in the hood. It not only acts as a fulcrum securing the quilt to the fitted sheet, letting you move freely in the quilt and tuck it around you like your bed at home, but it provides a warm and comfortable place to rest your head. It’s soft sleeping surface is found both inside the hood and out. Plus, we’ve sized it to perfectly fit our Zenbivy pillow. It’s also deep enough to fit your arms. 

 

 

The Zenbivy Pillow:

The Zenbivy Pillow is the perfect compliment to the Zenbivy Bed. Not only is it incredibly comfortable on its own, but it fits perfectly into the hood—ensuring it won’t fall off your mattress in the middle of the night. It’s lightweight and ultra-compact 2-piece design is made up of a machine washable padded pillow case that slips over the bladder.

Introducing Zenbivy

Unlike many Kickstarter projects, this one actually launches a new brand.  Our vision is to help you create a simple night outside, where comfort and minimalism can coexist.  We defy the notion that comfort must be cumbersome, or that lightweight must equate suffering.  The Zenbivy Bed is the first of a few, simple things can take you anywhere you want to go outside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Our entire team from design, development, QA, and manufacturing have a long-standing track record of successfully working together on other down sleeping bag programs for premium brands. As such, manufacturing risks are low.

There is a small risk that our down or fabrics will fail standard testing protocols and need to be resourced or re-tested.

There is a small risk that the EN testing could fall outside of our spec range (23º-28ºF EN Limit), and that the fill schedules may need to be adjusted, new samples produced, and testing repeated to confirm spec.
