I am using the P-10 nasal mask/headgear under the Respironics Premium III chinstrap and all is well. At this point, this is my "goto" set up. I'm not touching anything for 30 days to get an overall picture of where I'm at.
After another 30 day trial, I am going to check different pressures in APAP mode to see if I can get my #'s just a little lower.
Very satisfied so far.

Tonight starts a 3 night test with the FX headgear.
I don't care how I look, I like it, and my tiny morning headaches are gone. I'm glad the tech gave me this one, I think it was a good choice on her part because you could go nuts looking for the "right" one.
I am in FL also, same a/c as you, so being warm not an issue for me either. I just put it on the 1st day, but really sat down the 2nd night and adjusted it until it almost felt like it wasn't there. I may have to make a tiny bit more adjustment, but then I just slip it off in the morning so I don't change the adjustment.
The big test will be longevity now. Will it make it the time period allowed by insurance before replacement?
Will definitely start a new thread after this 2nd 3 day test period.

It is interesting how we can become accustomed to awkwardness! I am now totally used to this strap and have adjusted its tightness to the perfect comfort level. It is 100% effective for me and has come to represent leak free sleeping. I wouldn't think of going without it - just like the XPAP. I'm going to take a look at ginzo's Premium III.
