I like to keep my bedroom nice and cool. This can create problems with condensation, especially from my exhalation.
I have a heated hose, but I recently switched masks to the AirFit P10.
I have barrel cozies on the way from Pad a Cheek, but I'm a little concerned that because of the mask's design the barrel cozy has to cover a lot less of the barrel than with other masks.
I am also considering a short hose cozy, I had one on my Aloha and it really helped with exhalation condensation.
I'm wondering, are there any AirFit P10 users out there who use a short hose cozy? If you use one, does the cozy have a bad effect on the hose's flexibility?
I know that some suppliers sell short hose cozys, but I just made my own from a small piece of fleece, cut it to size and tied with ribbon.
It does not affect the hose at all, still moves easily.
I use a snuggle hose and even though it has a zipper I find my hose is still flexible enough for me. I would also set the climate line to auto if you are using one. That will help avoid rainout and condensation.
