A year ago, Zenbivy introduced the two-piece Zenbivy Bed sleeping bag that offered a zipperless and versatile sleep system for the outdoors. Now, the company gets set to introduce a new and even more lightweight model — the Zenbivy Light Bed.
Founded by Michael Glavin, the same guy that brought you the awesome Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed, Zenbivy is out to make sleeping outdoors a more comfortable experience. With a completely zipperless design, the new Zenbivy Light Bed is 20% lighter than the original and makes it competitive with the lightest backpacking quilts and mummy bags on the market. It also ensures that it is ultralight enough 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. By removing the zippers from both the quilt and the fitted sheet, and adding hooks and loops to the sheet itself, you can now attach the quilt to the bed in even more ways and configure the quilt into both a mummy-style footbox and a rectangular bag-style footbox.
The bag is stuffed with 800 fill power HyperDry down inside a soft and comfy 20-denier nylon fabric shell.
The Zenbivy Light Bed will comes in two temperature version — the 3 season: EN-limit 23° F which weighs 1 pound 13 ounces and the 3+ season: EN-limit 10º F (target) which weighs 2 pounds 6 ounces.
The Zenbivy Light Bed will retail for $359 — the company plans to run an Indiegogo campaign that starts on the 13th to take pre-orders.
