Air fit F20
#1
Air fit F20
Have been using the airfit F20 and now used the airtouch the past week. Really love this mask.  Slightly more leaks with airtouch, but not causing any problems.  
Only complaint with the mask is the headgear.  Had to order a large size because felt very tight behind my head.  Was better but still get an indentation at back of my head.  I also don't have it very tight to cause this problem.
Anyone else find this problem and if yes any advice? Tried to use a pad but no change.    Thanks, this is a great forum.

I tried the Airfit f20 for a few nights and could not use it.  The upper straps were so short.  Even having them at the loosest point the mask felt tight on my face.  I have read many reviews where people stated the same thing.

NadiaK, 
Were you using the F20 for Her (pink) when you had problem with short straps?  The F20 headgear (blue) in the base model has much longer straps.  Also, I saw onlne that headgear for F20 come so as "standard" size with FFM but you can get small or large headgear. 
With F10 I noticed headgear top straps tight when first received but got better after several nights on older supplies.  Headgear recently received seems tighter overall.

I use philips respironics headgear, it has more stretch. I find it keeps better tension as you move your head up and down. I find the resmed too stiff, like the generic stuff off ebay for $8.
I use the standard headgear on the f20 and it works well.

If anyone knows of decent headgear cheap from china, please say so.

From machine or charts for auto-cpap, set the min at 'med' median pressure, or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

Ajack,
What Phillips headgear are you using with the F20?
Thank you.

Mine came off the amara. It is probably used on several models, as it looks like the standard headgear with a constant width. I also use a safetypin on the back,  to close the gap between the top and bottom section, but I do that with most headgear, as I have a funny shaped head

not the one with a wider section, like on comfortgel, as you may need to cut down the width to be able for it to tightened in the section where the fitting on the mask would sit.
