If it doesn't perform, I know where to go..

If you like the P10, but want to try something else that is similar, you may want to try the Pilairo Q. It also has the diffused vent and is light. It comes with 2 sets of headgear, one of which is adjustable and the other elasticized. Both sets are comfortable.

Good luck with your quest, Gabby

I had the nuance, and I liked it, the swivel is nice. I like the P10 better and I'm seriously considering the Pilairo because I hate leaving well enough alone.

I know what you mean, that's why I ended up trying the P10 even though I was happy with the Pilairo and why I keep trying different full face masks looking for one that I would be happy enough with in case I end up too congested to use the nasal pillows.

I'm always worried that they will stop making the one I like and I will need something else and not know where to start.

I have to add that in regards to congestion, I have found even with my worst cold that using the nasal pillows has actually helped me get through it. Just my own experience.

I did have one night where it was bad enough that I wouldn't even try it. Mind you i wouldn't try my bite plane /night guard either, so it's possible that I wouldn't have been able to use a ffm either.

As for them stop making them - that is a worry i have with a lot things, and it's often come true!

Happens to me all the time, so annoying.

Thank you Skram, PaytonA and Galactus for your comments regarding the Nuance and the Pilairo Q.
I am still waiting for my Nuance to arrive and I shall have a look at the Pilairo and maybe give that one a go as well.
I just find with the P10, the last month or more, no matter what I do I can't get my leaks down.
I use a chinstrap, I change my pillows.
The thing is, on my graph the leaks start quite high, about 5 or 7 from the time I put the mask on and read for half an hour. Whereas before that would be zero leak.
Usually I would hear if there was a leak there and adjust the pillows accordingly. But now it seems to be a steady leak throughout the night.
My leaks can be in the 7's, the teens or even 20's.
They were never like that before.
This is why I am thinking I will try a new mask.

Thanks again for your feedback.
Sleep Tight...
Gabby

I see your posts is a couple years old, so curious if you're still using the Airfit P10. I have the same problem with the headgear strap stretching out before the 6 month exchange time-frame. I plan to shorten it like you did.

Yes, this thread is 2 years old, but there are many other threads on this same subject. It seems to be a problem for many.

All you need to do is wash the headgear in very hot water and let dry or throw in dryer. It will shrink back up.

Recently, ResMed has been including clips with all their masks that can be used to shorten the strap.
