Can't talk well. Can't sip water or take a pill if you need it in the middle of the night.

May be harder to fit and stop leaks because it has to contact a larger area of the face.

More pressure on the straps due to larger surface area.

Pushes back on your jaw and may worsen your apnea.

Comfort, claustrophobia.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
