Best Sleep Masks for Plane Travel iMore 2019

You can't fully control the lighting on an airplane, but you can control how much light reaches your eyes. There are many different kinds of sleep masks designed to block out ambient light. Find the best shape and style to suit your needs. Here are some of the best.

Lightweight and simple: Sipwell Jersey Slumber Silk Sleep Mask

Staff Favorite

This mask is so simple, it's just a whisper of silk across your eyes that blocks out much of the light around you. It doesn't feel heavy on the face, nor does it take up much room in your bag.

A sleep mask is an integral part of sleeping on an airplane. Which mask you choose depends entirely on your personal taste and what you find comfortable. I like the lightweight simplicity of the Sipwell Jersey Slumber Silk Sleep Mask for myself.
