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.
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 is 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 lbs. 6 ozs. (regular size), and MSRP is $260 (regular size).
