I was wondering whether anyone has any experience using the 3B Flex-Lite mask by 3B Products. If so, how do you like it?

It looks like a scuba divers mask without the face-plate. Bigwink

thats like a wide hose nasal cannula, worn like a cannula with nose pillows in it. i have one of them laying around that i tried several years ago. as i recall, i liked it and didn't see any problems but just couldn't use nasal anything because of the deviated septum. back then i tried several nasal set ups trying to get something to work. my wife liked it too, but mine didn't come with an assortment of pillows or headgear like the one you are looking at and was too big for her. other companies make the same thing so i think mine may have been made by another company. if there were any identifying marks they have long since worn off.

RE: Anybody using the 3B?
I didn't try the 3B Flex-Lite, but I purchased their other model, the 3B Willow. I'm happy with it. The price was good. I posted a review on the mask earlier this morning. I looked at the Flex-Lite but never used a cannula style mask. Seemed easier to try something a little more similar to what I had been using. But it looks interesting ...
