Can Sleepweaver Elan handle pressures higher than 15?
I've heard some complaints about the leaks with the Sleepweaver Elan cloth mask when pressures are over 8. Has anyone with high pressures (15 or higher) used this mask?

There's this review:

Just read some info on it and it says it can be used up to 20 but works best at lower pressures. It would be interesting to see if it can indeed be used that high.
