Carefusion ruby chin strap
Buyer beware, I ordered one of these online paid $35. Turns out straps won't fit. The supplier said it was a 1 size fits all, but I have still yet to call the manufacturer to verify this as I have a med-small head. This fits my 9 year old boy but not my other 12 year old boy, go figure.Thinking-about

This chin strap is marketed under various names consisting of different combinations of the words CareFusion, PureSom and Ruby. It is a full-head harness type chinstrap with two Velcro size adjusters, one above the forehead and the other at the nape of the neck. At first sight, I though it would be too heavy, too hot, and much too restrictive. However, it is made of a wonderfully light, stretchy fabric and fits so well that I am totally unaware of it during the minute or two I need to fall asleep after I put it on. It is currently available online in two sizes, Regular and XL, for less than $15, which is very good value for such a stable chin strap. I previously tried a ResMed chin restraint, which slipped off my head nearly every night, allowing my nasal mask straps to slip off too, and so I appreciate a chin strap that always stays put.

If you look online, you can easily find instructions for how to pick the correct size. If in doubt, I suggest you go with the XL because you can tighten it if necessary with the Velcro tabs.

There is one issue that buyers should be aware of: the correct positioning of this chin strap is not intuitive, at least for some users. I thought mine was way too loose until I discovered that the CareFusion label belongs at the nape of the neck, and not at the crown of the head as I had assumed. If you're not sure you have the chin strap on correctly, find some photographs online to help you sort it out.

Best chinstrap, I've used
5 from me too

I got the larger size with my yearly supplies from Supplier #10
Straps are adjustable and the fit is comfy

The PureSom Ruby works great for me also. It comes as both an adjustable chinstrap in 2 sizes, and a non-adjustable one in 3 sizes. It stretches a bit with use, so I wouldn't recommend the non-adjustable type.
