RE: 4 years, still feel like garbage
Yes, I agree that the leaks are a problem. I was holding out hope that they might possibly go away at a lower pressure.

That's mostly based on my own experience over the last few months. I call it "always hopeful", although it may actually be "wishful thinking".

You can see by looking at the graphs (Post #25) that it's likely the pressures you stated are indeed all that's needed.

The problem, though, is the leaks. The easiest attempt at a fix is a chin strap or full face mask.
