Frustration with leaks ?
Hi Gang

Been away for a while, fighting some personal battles! The main one being leaks and poor sleep as a result.
I used to be fine with the P10 and I suddenly stated getting leaks, I've changed out everything for a new P10 but problem remained. Also tried Philips Nuance and F&K Pilairo which don't suit me as well as P10.
I then tried the Philips soft gel Nasal mask and found it very uncomfortable but the leaks were reduced.
I've just ordered an F10 to try the full face experience in the hope that I can settle on a mask that gives me a good nights sleep for the majority of nights.

Any suggestions grateful received

Failure is NOT an option.

I personally recommend in FFM the F&P Simplus or if in nasal the F&P Eson. The Eson is my mask now after much trial and error from TFM FFM and NM of different brands.

The Eson fits very loosely and gives a very good seal, is extremely comfortable and is silent as the grave as far as venting.

Second choice is the Simplus FFM. Followed closely by the Fitlife total face which while a large mask takes care of pressure points, mouth breathing, and at the pressures your running shouldnt leak at all. But trust if it does it WILL let you know LOL.

I'm still new to all this, but I've been using the F&P Simplus FF mask and haven't had any trouble with it. Never leaks and easy to adjust.

Good luck finding something that works for you!
