Manta Sleep Mask Review: A 100 Percent Blackout Mask for Light Sleepers

Manta Sleep Mask

The Manta Sleep’s unique design uses a combination of hollow eye covers and a foam eyemask to create the ultimate sleep mask, one that blocks out 100 percent of light and doesn’t restrict eye movement.

Manta Sleep Mask Review:

Price and Where to Buy: The Manta Sleep Mask is available on Amazon and Manta Sleep’s website for $29.99

How The Manta Sleep Mask Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Unlike regular sleep masks that let in light around the nose and sides, the Manta Sleep Mask blocks out 100 percent of the light, giving you total darkness even if you’re trying to sleep in a brightly lit airport or sunny room.
  • Portability: 8/10. The molded, soft foam, hollow eye covers make the mask slightly less portable than a standard mask, but it’s still lightweight and folds down for easy packing in the included carrying case.
  • Comfort: 10/10. This mask doesn’t put any pressure on your nose or eyes, so your eyes can naturally move in REM sleep. The velour-lined strap is lined all the way around, so that the Velcro won’t catch on your hair or cause any pain.
  • Durability: 9/10. The mask is machine-washable, so you can feel good about putting it on your face, even after you wear it on a plane.

Final Verdict: The Manta Sleep Mask is like having your own blackout curtains wherever you go.
