Anyone using Breeze SleepGear mask?
#1
I toss and turn A LOT. I also sleep on my side and stomach. This mask looks like it might solve the problems I've had with other masks if it will stay on. Anyone else using it?

I used to use it for many years. The Breeze is an excellent mask and is good for side sleepers but awful for back sleepers. That hard headgear gets pushed when on your back. The Breeze has been around for a very, very long time.

The biggest problem with the Breeze is the cyclone of noisy air that comes out of the vent. It truly is loud. If it is your first mask, you may not think it is that bad. But then you'll try another one later and you'll wonder if it is working right because you cannot hear it.

Any pillows mask that has a hose coming out the front and can rotate will work for side sleepers. That way you can route the hose to where ever you need it to be, even up over to the top of your head. Many pillows masks' headgear have a loop to hold the hose there already. Such as the Nuance. Avoid a mask where the hose comes out the side, like the Swift II.

I'm using a DreamWear right now and laying on my side causes it to unseat. I move all over during the night.

If you tolerate nasal therapy, don't give it up. A conventional nasal pillows mask will stay in place better because of the shape that mates with your nose better. Those pillows are not prongs, they just use the natural shape of the nose to hold the interface in place. If you're buying out of pocket, the Resmed Airfit P10 is only $68 on Amazon. If you have full coverage, request a change. There are several other models that have even more robust headgear, but the minimal design of the P10 and diffusion of exhaust air that does not blow on you or your bed warmer, is nice.

The point is, try something else. Most masks can be exchanged for 30 days if it's not working out. If you're on your own dime, I just gave you a great lead.
