Yeah, my wife tells people that sleeping with me is like sleeping with Darth Vader. I keep asking her if she ever sees me mouth-leaking, but she never has. She's just refering to the sound and feel of the exhaust port, plus my appearance. Cool

Last three nights in a row I've had my chin strap on tight and my leaks under control, especially the last two nights.

I see what you mean. Kinda gives a new meaning to the term "blabbermouth". Dielaughing
