About

Introducing the NoZipp UL (Ultralight) Sleeping Bag. A simple solution to staying comfortable and warm in the wild.  

We believe that the outdoors are awesome. And we think you should get the most out of nature when you get there. If you can appreciate the outdoors as much as we do, we’ve done our job.   

Our mission is to make your time spent in nature remarkable.

By challenging the status quo (also known as the evil zipper regime) we think you’ll have a better opportunity to enjoy yourself. Nobody likes hassling with gear. Or buying new gear too often.   

We’ve made a hassle free, draft proof sleeping bag that’s ultralight and ultra-comfortable. Now you can enjoy a better outdoor sleeping experience. Because when you’re well rested, you’re more yourself and ready for adventure.

The NoZipp UL Sleeping Bag is a new sleeping bag that kills zippers and takes no prisoners.  

Replacing zippers with our innovative button toggles allows for some awesome and unique features:

Nobody likes sleeping like a mummy. (Except maybe dead Egyptians.) By giving you extra space on mild nights you can sleep more comfortably. 

Conversely, we provide you the standard mummy shape too. It’s simply the best way to insulate on cold nights. And it gives you the security and warmth you’ll need in extreme conditions.

Thanks to our draft proof patent pending torso overlap, we’re the only sleeping bag that has an expandable shoulder pocket. Good luck Northface.

Our unique overlapping torso material locks the drafts out, and keeps you warm all night. The large overlap (baffle) allows us to use fewer fasteners which keeps the weight down and the drafts out

It's time to kiss drafty nights goodbye. 

48" zipper vs. 6 button toggles
48" zipper vs. 6 button toggles

An absolute no-brainer. Lighter is better, especially when the product is more durable AND more consistent.  

Obviously, an issue on the scale of poverty and saving the rain forest; eliminating the dreaded zipper snag is positive step towards a happy and healthy future. You’re welcome humanity. 

Zippers are usually the first thing to break on an otherwise high quality product. Why spend good money on products that don’t last? 

Our button toggles are much stronger and are guaranteed to endure issue free for years to come.

Products that are easy to use and easy to maintain are products that last.  

Comparing on specs alone; the NoZipp UL is still a winner. But when you take into account the comfort provided by overall shape. The added features become truly remarkable.

We stick to our word on excellent quality. We offer a full 2 year warranty on the sleeping bag, as well as ‘No Questions Asked’ 90 day returns from when you receive your bag. If you don't think it's the most comfortable high performance sleeping bag you've ever slept in, return it and we'll give you a full refund.  

Simple rewards for a simply designed sleeping bag.

We take independent lab verification of our claims seriously. That's why we're waiting to test a bag from the first production run. This will give you the most accurate results. 

Unfortunately, to be more accurate later, we have to estimate our lower limit rating now. Our first magnet bag was tested to 15°F / -9°C. And we are overly safe in our claimed rating. Using our experience and engineering acumen, this bag is rated at 20°F / -7°C.

 Just in time for 2019 camping season.  

We'll ship our bag anywhere in the world. Prices are as follows:   

  • $0 - United States  
  • $19 - Canada & Mexico  
  • $39 - Europe  
  • $59 - Rest of the World  

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included (sorry!) in the item price or shipping cost.These charges are the backer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs to determine what these additional costs will be prior to pledging.

We have a lot of experience in this area, so send us a message if you have a question. 

Everyone says they have high quality, but what does that mean? Here’s what it means to NoZipp and this project: 

We begin with only the highest quality starting materials. 850 Fill Power ethically sourced duck down, lightweight and breathable nylon shell material, and we pair that with our brand new ultra durable toggles. 

During manufacturing, we have agreements in place to manufacture and maintain only the highest standards of production. We do not accept or pay for sub quality product. We also have an independent QC Contractor that follows an extensive checklist that back-checks our manufacturers before it is sent to the U.S. Then as a final Quality check, nothing gets shipped to customers unless it is checked and signed off by NoZipp.

The outdoors are awesome. We want the time you spend there to be awesome too. Our goal is to deliver you the best gear imaginable, so you can get back to enjoying nature as it is meant to be.  

NoZipp was founded on a tinkering desire to solve problems. An epic zipper struggle in 2014 seeded the idea to make less annoying and consistent gear. After many revisions, and too many nights sleeping in subpar prototypes; the NoZipp sleeping bag was born. We launched our flagship NoZipp magnetic sleeping bag via Kickstarter in March of 2016.  

We met our initial funding goal in eight days, and we've since delivered sleeping bags to awesome Kickstarter backers and amazing online shoppers.  

We can't wait to help you achieve a more comfortable night, anywhere.

Taylor is a fun loving adventure enthusiast. He's camped in over a dozen different countries, spent a year riding a motorcycle around the Americas, and most importantly is a world champion grilled cheese chef. He's a Registered Civil Engineer by trade, but he's here to make better camping gear as the Founder at NoZipp.

The manufacturing team are professionals in the factory, but are fun loving outdoors people when they're out. They are located in the North West portion of China, and have the opportunity to test their gear in the cold northern winters. Having a manufacturer that regularly visits the outdoors is a huge advantage in prototyping and communication. Instead of just knowing how to produce high quality equipment, they know why quality and deisgn matter. 

If you've made it this far, we thank you for seriously considering NoZipp!

If you're still on the fence, would you do us a solid at no cost to you? We'd greatly appreciate if you shared our campaign with someone you think might like it. It increases the campaigns visibility, and it'll help us help more campers sleep better. Thanks!

                           
     

Risks and challenges

Supply Chain Risk: We are already teamed with a qualified manufacturing facility. We are experienced working successfully with them. However, to mitigate potential supplier/manufacturer issues we also have a backup supplier in line.

Manufacturing Risk: A typical issue not only with physical products on Kickstarter, but with all kinds of projects. Engineering skill and experience is pivotal to success. We're going to mitigate this risk by having our samples perfected. That way it’s only matter of duplication. We also maintain open line of communication between manufacturers, suppliers, and NoZipp.

Logistics Risk: Organization and experience is key to logistics. By staying organized we can minimize mistakes. With our previous experience we can easily recognize and avoid common pitfalls.

Quantity Risk: It's tough to predict quantities with Kickstarter. We have to be prepared for all possible outcomes. Our manufacturing facility is capable of producing a high volume as well as the minimum order quantity required to reach the funding goal.

Quality Risk: Our backers receiving a top quality product is our top priority. We’ll mitigate risk by implementing our top notch quality assurance and quality control program. Our program includes: acceptable manufacturing tolerances, materials testing, QC checklists, and quality checks at all stages during the production run. We will also arrange and independent and thorough QC inspection before the order is shipped from overseas. And lastly, nothing gets shipped unless it passes a final QC inspection by a NoZipp engineer.

Schedule Risk: Schedule is always the first thing to slip when things inevitably don’t go as planned. We've done our homework to come up with an accurate projection of our timeline. We've built in additional time so that potential production delays won't delay our final delivery. We'll do whatever it takes to deliver on time or early.
