Zenbivy got started a little over a year ago, and their sleep system interested me when it came out. The Zenbivy Light Bed is coming to Indiegogo on September 13th and it looks pretty interesting. Camping quilts are gaining popularity these days and that is happening for good reasons. Quilts tend to be lighter, less confining, and just as comfortable as traditional sleeping bags. I enjoy using quilts both in the tent and when hammock camping. Zenbivy takes a unique approach to quilts and adds a hood and bottom section to their system.
Early bird specials are available when the Zenbivy Light Bed campaign starts so be sure to keep an eye out for those. Click HERE to see the quilt in action on the Zenbivy YouTube channel.
Spokane, Washington, August 30, 2018 – A year ago, Zenbivy disrupted the conventional way of sleeping outdoors with their revolutionary 2-piece Zenbivy Bed sleeping bag. Fast forward to 2018 and the company is at it again with the introduction of their Zenbivy Light Bed. The all-new patent-pending zipper-less design is 20% lighter than the original. Founded by seasoned product innovator and outdoor industry veteran, Michael Glavin (GSI Dualist, MSR Hubba Bubba and Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed), Zenbivy will launch September 13 with crowdfunding partner, Indiegogo, giving customers the opportunity to take advantage of the very first production at discounted prices. The campaign goes through October 12.
The Zenbivy Light Bed‘s 20% reduction in weight makes it competitive with the lightest backpacking quilts and mummy bags on the market. It also ensures that it is ultralight for the backcountry’”both as a quilt and as a full EN rated bag. Much of the weight savings is achieved by replacing heavier zippers with lightweight clips that can configure a flat quilt to one that wraps snugly without restriction.
“Our design goal with the Zenbivy Light Bed was to create the ability to sleep in the same comfortable positions you do at home…all while making it legitimately ultralight for the backcountry both as a quilt and as a full EN rated bag.” said Glavin.
The patent-pending design and revolutionary clip system enabled the Light Bed to be designed without zippers. The Light Quilt can be configured into a new rectangular design allowing it to be tucked in at the foot of the mattress for unrestricted foot movement. Plus, whether someone‘s natural sleep position is on their stomach, back, or side, the Zenbivy Light Bed allows for natural and effortless movement, resulting in a better sleep experience’”regardless of whether you‘re deep in the backcountry, laying in a hammock or car camping.
