15 years of struggle

As light sleepers, we struggled for over 15 years to find the perfect sleep mask.

Thousands of dollars had been spent on every design available, we’ve tried them all, but we just couldn’t find anything we were happy with. Some sleep masks were comfortable, but didn’t block out the light. Others gave 100% darkness, but felt like wearing a mini furnace on your face. Most? Most were just cheap & flimsy things that fell apart after a week of use. There had to be something better!

Let’s design our own

In early 2015, on a redeye flight to New York for a business trip, we sat on the plane, jetlagged back to the stone age, staring at a flimsy piece of plastic that the airline called a “sleep mask,”  and just had enough. If nobody else was going to make a better product, then we will do it ourselves. At this point, we’ve had more than 10 years of industrial design experience and put that to good use. We quit our full-time job and spent close to 2 years designing, testing, and manufacturing the “perfect” sleep mask for us. 11 design iterations later, 25 manufacturing partners later, 30 fabric evaluations later, we made something awesome: Manta Sleep Mask

Share it with the world

Manta Sleep Mask was the best sleep mask we’ve ever used, but we weren’t sure if other people felt the same way.

Our mothers thought it was great, but you know how moms are :). So we decided to share Manta Sleep Mask with the world on Kickstarter & Indiegogo. The response was beyond anything we could’ve imagined. $750,000+ pledges and 23,000+ happy customers later, we knew Manta was going to be a winner.

Seriously one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I was worried because I’m a side/stomach sleeper. I didn’t need to worry - this thing is worth every cent. I’m buying a heap for Christmas presents this year 👍👍👍

I bought a whole bouquet of your sleep masks because after I tried it, my whole family and friends had to have one. It’s amazing. Hands down the best sleep mask ever made.

Absolutely amazing. I work late shifts now and usually sleep when the sun rises and have had terrible sleep. These are so comfy and the ability to adjust them is just so great.

Not shilling or being paid. Love em. Thank y'all 😊

If you are a night shift worker, traveler or just need total blackout to get a decent sleep, this is the mask!

I’ve tried many masks and this is the only one that truly blocks out the light and does not put pressure on my eyes.

I am a side sleeper and this mask is comfortable, light and stays in place.

I suffer from dry eye syndrome, therefore, I always have to wear an eye mask to sleep. I've tried many different eye masks for the past two years, but they were always too loose, too tight, or they didn't cover my entire eye area (to prevent dry air from entering).

I purchased the Manta Sleep Mask a couple of weeks ago and it was worth every penny! It covers my eyes completely and doesn't move out of place. I want to say thank you to the creator of the Manta Sleep Mask!

Can confirm, my husband bought these and I questioned it because a sleep mask is a sleep mask, right?

Wrong. They are seriously worth the money.

I am a night shift nurse, and I could not survive without my Manta mask! This is not an overstatement.

The first thing I do when I get home from work is make sure I find my mask. It is VITAL to my very short sleep before I have to wake up and go back to saving lives.

Your product is amazingly comfortable, and I absolutely believe that is helps me get the rest that I need so I can actually function on 4 hours sleep. I am always telling my coworkers how awesome you are, and 5 of them have bought your mask as a result.

I have suffered from terrible eye allergies during sleep for many years. After trying several options, this is the first product that allows me to sleep comfortably while also physically blocking out allergens/irritants (and light). This product really has improved my health.

Hi there - huge fan of the Manta Sleep Mask! It’s completely transformed my sleep!

I track my sleep with my FitBit and I see a noticeable decline in time awake (and increase in deep sleep) when I sleep with my mask compared to when I don’t. Thanks for a great product (which I gifted to everyone in my family this Xmas LOL).

This is the best sleep mask the world has ever known. Total blackout sleep, very comfortable, doesn’t get hot, no readjusting or hair pulling. If you're not happy with this product, I'm not sure how to help you.

Bought 4 pairs. 1 for myself, 3 for presents. Best blackout eye mask ever! So comfortable. You can open your eyes with them on and no light comes through. A 15-year hunt is now over.

Obviously he’s a major procrastinator (I love him anyway!) but this mask is everything a sleep mask should strive to be! I love it so much!

This is the best sleep mask ever! After struggling to sleep more than 4 hours at a time this has helped tremendously! I had not slept for more than 4 hours since I had my triple bypass in 2009! I now sleep 8+ hours sometimes more! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My husband and I both have a Manta Sleep Mask and it has completely revamped the quality of our sleep. We've had them for almost a month and we feel more rested and energised in the morning. I'm tactile hypersensitive and for me it's really easy to sleep with it on.

We also use your blockout stickers and they've really helped as well :) Thanks for making good quality practical user friendly products!!

Super comfy, complete blackout, and just really well designed overall. I have a hard time sleeping without it now but that's ok because it's freakin great.

I recently purchased this. I was a little hesitant with the cost BUT I did it and have 0 regrets. Two reasons why I love it more than any other mask I’ve used:

#1- Other masks that lay flat on my eyes have actually ruined the way my eyelashes curl. I’d put mascara on and they were all wonky from being flattened every night. This face mask doesn’t even really touch my eyes. I can actually open my eyes and blink with it on!

#2- I can nap with makeup on and it stays intact!! Super comfy, awesome! 5 stars for this product!

I bought two sets - one each for Hubby and I to wear on our trip overseas. At first he refused to wear it, but then he tried it once and was addicted! He’s scared to wear it on weekdays now because he’s afraid he will sleep through work! He said he gets a better night’s sleep on planes and at home. Thanks Manta for a fantastic product!! 😍😍😍

I just wanted to say that I bought a Manta Sleep Mask and it’s been a gamechanger for my sleep quality. I have bought almost 10 different brands of sleep masks over the past few years so I can speak with some authority.

You have somehow managed a comfortable design that really keeps ALL light out of my eyes. It really works and I’m completely sold. Thanks to you and the designers at Manta for finally solving the sleep mask problem. This product is truly amazing!

This is the Cadillac of sleep masks! It delivers on the 100% blackout promise, the micro-velcro strap doesn’t get stuck in your hair. It is comfortable, and fully worth the 30 bucks you pay. This mask is absolutely essential for shift workers.

I absolutely recommend this mask. I rate this mask 🦖🦖🦖🦖🦖 5 T-Rexes out of 5, because stars have no personality, but this mask does!

I’ve been using sleep masks for close to 15 years to get a good night’s sleep. On most eye masks, the fabric wears, the Velcro weakens, and the elastic stretches too far, making the mask eventually unusable.

When I saw the Manta Sleep Mask I was intrigued, but skeptical. I’m really glad I decided to give it a try. Not only is the mask everything that was advertised, it’s actually better.

It is truly a blackout sleep mask. No asterisk here. Daytime, nighttime, it doesn’t matter. Once you adjust the mask to fit your face specifically, it truly blacks out all light. Not most - ALL. I have never experienced that before in a sleep mask.

I’ve been using it for over a month now and it is still the same as the first time I used it. Take it from a guy who’s done this dance with sleep masks for 15 years: I will never use another besides this one.

I love mine. I work early and hubby gets home late. Total blackout helps since he kicks on all the lights and turns on tv with his headset to fall asleep. I pass out and stay passed out. My old mask pressed on my eyes too much and I didn't realize these little cups would make such a difference.

I’ve tried every kind of sleep mask possible. Most of them are terrible, either uncomfortable, ill-fitting, or ineffective. The Manta Mask is the only one I’ve ever used that solves all these problems. It lets in no light whatsoever and is so comfortable and adjustable that you barely know it’s there. I’m buying a second one to put in my suitcase for traveling and recommending it to everyone I know.

The Manta Sleep Mask does everything promised. It is adjustable, comfortable, washable, and blocks all light. I am very happy with it and much less grumpy in general. Thank you Manta!
