Airfit P10 love but need something else

Try the Lanolin, it seems to act as an extra seal on the pillows. Maybe that will help you.

Poor Clem. She has really worked hard to figure out what is causing her leaks. Cudo's to her for keeping on.

Clem, I just don't know what to suggest! Could it be you have lots of hair and that causes goofiness in the straps when you lay down? You should be able to master this thing.... Is Mr. Clem secretly peeking under your mask at night to steal a kiss or something? Not that that would be a bad thing necessarily. You are putting the mask on right side up, which means the lettering goes down, are you not?

But great work on your part sticking with this.

As the others will find regarding the P10, "resistance is futile."

I would strongly suggest that you try out the Pilairo Q.

From my trials, I was down to the Pilairo Q and the Airfit P10. I like them both and found that on most aspects they were equal: minimal headgear, minimal contact, very little noise or exhaust.

I ended up going with the Pilairo Q as on nights when I have some congestion, it works better. I barely notice it. But on those nights, the AirFit P10 would start to whistle and I could feel extra resistance on exhale.

The Pilairo Q comes with 2 sets of headgear. One is a nonadjustable single elasticized strap. Great, minimalist and comfortable. The other is adjustable with two straps. I thought it would be less comfortable (as the second strap goes over the head and I have a bald/shaved head), but when the elastic gave our on the single strap, I switched to it and it's comfortable too.

I have heard good things about the Pilairo, so I wouldn't hesitate to try that one if for some reason I decided to use a different mask. Although that's not likely, for those few "P10 resistant" folks perhaps this is a nice alternative.

retired_guy,
Yup, I understand. Had I not had the whistling/extra resistance on the P10 when I had a congested/clogged nostril, I likely would have gone with the P10.

My comment was more directed at the OP.
Chrstauffe,
since you said

"I would like to find a different mask that is similar to the Airfit P10.
I really like how the P10 doesn't feel like you are strapped in. But I don't think it is doing me much good if I can't keep it in place. Basically a P10 with adjustable straps would be awesome..."

I think the Pilairo Q may be a good fit for you as it fits those criteria.

Normally I'd say P10 or gtfo, but that's cause I would be being a jerk Big Grin

I looked at the Pilairo Q and it actually looks kinda nice. I might try one just for sh*ts and grins.

Now if only they would make one of these and add a swivel to the front I think they might get it all the way.

My Swift FX for Her has a swivel, soft pillows, and adjustable straps. Now if there was only some way to diffuse that blasted/blasting exhaust I would be quite happy.

Have you considered having your nose retrofitted with a swivel? That would be interesting!

I tried the Pilaro, used the Swift FX for a year and then discovered the P10. Woiuldn't use anything else. I've used the current P10 6 months and don't think the straps have stretched any (I wear a large cap (7 1/2). I take the straps off about twice a month, wash and air dry them.

I have indeed. And it would indeed be. Sadly no one will do it.
