Full Face Headgear
#1
I use an Ultra Mirage Full Mask Mask.  I've found that sometimes other brand headgear fits better and more comfortable than the OEM.  The Fisher & Paykell HC 407 (designed for a nasal mask) and the Philips Respironics Deluxe Headgear are two.  They are a bit thinner than the Ultra Mirage OEM, but fit me and are more comfortable than the OEM.  There's a China headgear on eBay for about $7.50 shipped.  It's thin.  It could be a value in that the OEM won't last 4x longer than the China.

I discovered the Fisher & Paykell when I needed a headgear and had it laying around from my sleep test several years earlier.  The Philips Respironics Deluxe Headgear, I bought 4 expecting it to be thicker.  But both, to my surprise, are more comfortable for me.

Interesting ideas!

I've been using my Dreamwear headgear upside down, and I'm finding it stays in place better.
