Seat Dreamzzz Review: Nodding Off Without The Annoying Head-Nod

“Just what the world needs… another sleep mask”,you say with an eye roll.

I know exactly what you mean. And I almost missed this fascinating new travel concept as well as I flicked through my inbox.

It is always found to be challenging sleeping on airplanes. And it’s not just because the plane seats seem to be getting smaller and smaller. Sometimes we feel like we could've had more leg space if we were in a coffin back in the luggage hold. But in reality, the biggest enemy to sleep on a plane is the infamous “head bob”.

You know what I mean.

Ugh, sleeping on a plane…

…staring at the seat in front of you.

Just as you’re starting to doze off, your head rolls to the side, or straight down, and then jerks back upright waking you again. The jarring experience is beyond frustrating when all you need is some solid rest. To make things worse Joe Flyer in the seat next to you is snoring like a chainsaw.

You’re simultaneously disguised by the small stream of drool down the left side of his mouth, pooling like an un-tropical oasis on his shoulder, but equally you’re jealous that he’s already asleep and it feels like you’ll never see Sandman any time on this flight.

If you’ve flown more than once in the evening, and aren’t some kind of miracle sleeper, then I’m sure you can relate to this scenario.

Sometimes it’s the simplest solutions which are also the most elegant.

The folks at SeatDreamzzz were determined to give flyers sweet dreams by addressing this challenge head on. Or should I say “head still”.

How to cure the nasty “head bob”? They’ve used a fairly basic eye mask, but with a separate attachment strap which wraps around the plane seat’s headrest.

I tried it out myself and have to say it was surprisingly easy and comfortable. Did it work? Yes, absolutely. It does what it says on the packet. Simple as that.

The silicon layer coating the backing strip ensure it keeps a solid grip on the seat headrest.

The mask is lightweight (only 4oz) and flexible so it fits into any small bag or even your pocket. It will fit pretty much any size head and seat and only takes a few seconds to set up. And it’s easy to clean. Construction is durable – strong stitching with robust yet comfortable fabric. it feels like I could fly with it for years and it won’t age a day. I wish I could say that about myself!

The only downside, is unlike cushier masks that feature softer, thicker padding, the nose gap doesn’t completely black out 100% of light. Or maybe it’s just because I have a big nose. Not entirely sure. But considering all the other benefits and relatively affordable price tag, I find it’s a worthwhile trade-off.

The mask comes with a handy soft carry pouch so you don’t lose the extension strap. The pouch features 2 pockets which are the perfect size to hold a phone, cables, headphones, candy, passport, ear plugs, nose plugs, hair plugs, a sock for Joe Flyer’s mouth, or other small useful accessories.

The SeatDreamzzz mask is currently on Kickstarter and will be available for regular purchases in January 2018. If you’re thinking about flying this year, this sleep mask could be just the thing to start your vacation on the right foot.

  2. I couldn’t refrain from commenting. Well written! I couldn’t refrain from commenting.
    Very well written! Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to
    death at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the information you present here and can’t wait to
    take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, wonderful site!

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  4. I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article
    like yours. It is beautiful price sufficient for me.

    Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did,
    the web will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
