Revolutionary new outdoor sleeping system that helps you #sleepfreestyle hits the crowdfunding campaign trail to bring the Zenbivy Bed to life.

 SPOKANE, Wash. (May 31, 2017) – Zenbivy, an innovative, outdoor start-up company focused on bringing you a comfortable night’s sleep in the outdoors, today officially launches its Kickstarter campaign.

Founded by seasoned product innovator and outdoor industry veteran, Michael Glavin, Zenbivy’s crowdfunding program aims to raise funds for its flagship product – the Zenbivy Bed – while engaging the outdoors and active lifestyle communities to get involved in helping bring the future of comfortable, modern sleeping bags to market. Using high-quality materials and a one-of-a-kind, two-piece design, the Zenbivy Bed combines lightweight and warmth with the freedom to move naturally – just like sleeping in your bed at home. The campaign starts today and runs for 30 days, concluding on June 29.

“Mummy bags are warm and light, but they severely restrict natural movement. The Zenbivy Bed combines the warmth and the weight of a mummy bag, with the ability to sleep naturally like you do at home,” said Glavin.

The Zenbivy Bed is disrupting the conventional way of sleeping outdoors by bringing you freestyle sleeping – an easy-to-use system that meshes comfort over a wide temperature range, natural freedom of movement, and choice materials to deliver an experience that’s as close as possible to a good night’s sleep at home. Because it’s warm and light like a mummy bag, you can sleep comfortably anywhere – from couch-surfing to the deepest backcountry. And, when you know you have a warm, comfortable spot to spend the night, it inspires you to do more during the day.

A game-changer in the sleeping bag market, the Zenbivy Bed is designed on the foundation of comfort and moves with you when you want to move, while eliminating the chance for any draft between baffles with its innovative overlapping construction. The two-piece design features a unique comforter that lies on top of a fitted-sheet and zips into place on top, rather than on the edges – freeing the quilt to spread out or wrap snugly around you without restriction. So, regardless if you sleep on your stomach, back, or side, the Zenbivy Bed lets you move naturally and effortlessly for a better sleep experience during your adventures – from under the stars in the backcountry to car camping and family road trips.

The Zenbivy Bed will be available in three sizes and features: 700 fill-power HyperDRY™ water-resistant down, a temperature rating of 25-degrees, a separate quilt convertible footbox that lets the quilt unzip flat, a lightweight, built-in secure sleeping pad sleeve with hood, weighs 2.6 lbs. (regular size), and MSRP is $260 (regular size).
