Zenbivy To Launch Kickstarter Campaign on May 9 for New Sleeping Bag System

Zenbivy, an innovative, outdoor-inspired start-up company where minimalism and comfort intersect, officially announces the launch of its Kickstarter campaign on May 9 to support the brand's flagship product the Zenbivy Bed. Founded by seasoned product innovator and industry veteran, Michael Glavin, Zenbivy's crowdfunding program looks to raise funds while engaging the outdoors and active lifestyle communities to get involved in helping bring the future of comfortable, modern sleeping bags to market.

"Our design goal with the Zenbivy Bed is to combine the warmth and weight of a mummy bag with the ability to sleep in the same positions that you do at home. Mummy bags restrict your movement which can reduce your quality of sleep. The Zenbivy Bed allows for free movement like your bed at home, while maintaining thermal efficiency," said Glavin, who has led teams at Sierra Designs, GSI, and MSR that have won 11 BACKPACKER Magazine Editors' Choice Awards. "Through our Kickstarter campaign we aspire to connect and engage with numerous communities to introduce them to the brand and join the Zenbivy family, while harnessing support to bring the product to market."

The Zenbivy Bed is disrupting the conventional way of sleeping outdoors by bringing you freestyle sleeping – a revolutionary system that meshes comfort over a wide temperature range, natural freedom of movement, and high-quality 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 you 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 features 700 fill-down, a temperature rating of 25-degrees, shoulder girths of up to 76 inches, and weights starting at 2.4 lbs. MSRP is $250 (regular size).
