Packing List: The Sleep Kit

Packing List: The Sleep Kit


Whether you are backpacking around the world or staying in a 5 star hotel, it’s always helpful to have a sleep kit.

What is a sleep kit, you ask? It’s a grab and go pouch filled with everything you need to have a great sleep on the road. I usually keep mine on the nightstand if I’m in a hotel with room to spare… or, if I’m in a hostel, it’s nestled in my sleep sack so I have it handy in case I need anything in the middle of the night.

It’s a necessary addition to any packing list, because (as I like to say) you can expect your sleeping arrangements to be inevitably loud, bright or dark at one point or another.

Here are the essentials:

  • Eye mask
  • Ear plugs
  • Extra hair ties/ barrettes (for girls)
  • Travel alarm clock
  • Flashlight – This one is my favorite. It has a whistle on one end, is incredibly lightweight and long-lasting and has a number of flashlight settings– including a blinking light for emergencies. (And it’s super cheap at $6.)

These items fit easily in a small pouch. My favorite is the Sea to Summit Traveling Pouch because it’s both incredibly lightweight while also having a clear panel on the front so you can easily see where everything is. (I got mine from REI.)

What are your must-have sleep accessories?
