The Zero Gravity Zen Bag FAQs

Do I have color options?

The Zero Gravity Zen Bag will, initially, come in one color, Navy Blue.  The cover material is a very durable and strong poly/cotton twill blend.

Can the cover be removed?

No.  The bag itself holds the polystyrene balls that gives the bag its shape. 

How much does it weigh?

The bag and its contents weigh approximately 4 pounds.

What is used for the filling?

Expanded Polystyrene.

Can it be returned?

Yes, the Zero Gravity Zen Back can be returned within 30 days of receipt, but we do not pay for return shipping.

What is the cover made out of?

Poly/Cotton Twill.

Does it have a childproof  zipper?

Yes.  The zipper mechanism has had the pull tab removed.  This will require an object, such as one end of a paper clip, be inserted into a hole in the zipper mechanism and used as a pull tab to open the zipper and have access to the polystyrene filler.

Will I need to replace the filling?

Yes.  Even though we use the highest quality polystyrene filler, with use, the filler will lose some of its buoyancy as the weight from the body will compress the filler, as air is pushed out of the cells of the filler.  Shaking the Zen Bag, similar to fluffing up a pillow, will help restore air inside the cells and improve the cushioning effect.  However, over time, a small amount of polystyrene will need to be added to the bag.  Polystyrene is a very common filler for traditional bean bags and is readily available from multiple online  sources and retailers, such as Walmart, Target and Amazon.

What’s the max weight of a person using The Zero Gravity Zen Bag?

We have not been able to determine a max weight for the Zen Bag.  The heaviest user that we know of that has used the Zen Bag weighs 225 pounds.

Are there health risks associated with using the Zero Gravity Zen Bag?

We are not medical professionals and we have not conducted any studies to evaluate potential health risks.  However, we have approached the design and creation of the Zen Bag with comfort and safety in mind. While the Zen Bag does have unique and proprietary features and benefits, it does share some commonalities with traditional bean bags -- specifically, the amount of increased effort required to get out of the bag.  The Zen Bag, as with other bean bags, sits low on the ground.  This will require some body flexibility and upper body strength to raise yourself out and up from the Zen Bag.  Please see our video for our suggestion on how to get out of the Zen Bag. 

When can I expect my Zero Gravity Zen Bag?

Zero Gravity Zen Bags take approximately 7 days to make.  Shipping will take another 1 to 7 days for delivery, depending on destination address.

Is the Zero Gravity Zen Bag patented?

The shape, functionality, materials and resulting benefits of the Zen Bag is patent-pending, The protection of the patent will be vigorously defended both domestically and internationally.
