I have one with the fabric frame. Been using it for about 2.5 months. It has become unusable because the FRAME is falling apart. It has failed due to stress to the fabric and torn in about 7 places.
Note: there are 3 parts to the Wisp. The mask (covers your nose), a frame which attaches to the mask (comes in fabric or silicone) and the headband which connects to the frame and goes over your head with the 4 adjustment points.
i just ordered a silicone replacement frame ($30) and hope it holds up better.
If I can ignore the extreme poor quality of this frame, the mask is great.

I absolutely love my Wisp. I've been using it a little over one month with the s/med cushions. I have no leaks. I struggle a bit with the bottom connectors, but that's getting better.
We ought to get together and exchange the masks we don't use. I imagine the s/m is the one used the most. So I could send my small or large to someone.
I should have mentioned that, while the Wisp works better for me than any of the other eight masks I have used over the past year, I do have one kvetch: The vent holes are designed to blow the exhaust air straight upward. I am guessing the purpose of this design is to keep the air from blowing on a bed partner. However, the result is that the air blows into my eyes. I do not have a bed partner, nor do I have plans to acquire one, but I do have eyes, and I plan on keeping them.
I have considered fabricating a little shield that I could glue on just past the vent holes that would deflect the air outward.

I have been using my Wisp for a little over a week now. Until I was switched to BiPAP, a full face mask worked, but the pressure on the bi is way too high and that keep blowing the mask off the bottom of my face so in the middle of the night, I would change back to my nasal pillow mask. After 4 more unsuccessful mask attempts, I was sent home the Wisp to try and I really like it. Best one so far!
Edited to add that I have the silicone frame.
WELCOME! to the forum! and best of luck to you.
