Fitting full face mask
I haven't been able to successfully use a full face mask. Part might be the fit. I wear a small nasal mask but I was in a medical supply store and the lady used a measurement devise to fit me and said I would take a large. It was for a mask that went all the way to the bottom of the chin. I don't remember the brand.

I would appreciate information about which full face masks have the best seals and fewest leaks.

If you have the brand and model of the mask you are considering, the manufacturer might have a fit template online.
