Full Face Mask SALVATION
Hi Everyone - After 2 weeks of struggling to get any decent sleep with my Quattro full face mask I had a hybrid full face mask delivered yesterday and boy am I glad I did. I got a full 8 hours of sleep without tearing the mask off my head. I woke up once but had no trouble going back to a deep sleep. I am really stoked that I found the setup that works for me. Those not familiar with the hybrid mask do a google search "hybrid full face mask" and check it out. Since we are not allowed to advertise a couple hints are there are 2 companies as far as I can tell that make these beauties. Pick the one thats the least expensive ~$117.00 and has all the sizes in the package (small, medium, large) and thats the one.

Not sure it will work for everyone but if you are struggling this might be worthwhile checking out for yourself. I could not be happier than I am right now and I feel GREAT!!!!!!

Hi tecwerks,
Glad you found a mask that works for you.
After you have used it for a few days, you might consider doing a review on it in the product reviews forum here on the board.

RE: Full Face Mask SALVATION
I tried it for several months after using the leaky quattro for a too leaked around my goatee...a common problem with masks for me even after I trimmed it took a few weeks for my nostrils to stop hurting after using it too..

.tried flexfit 431 next....helped but same a comfort gel coming any day now to try

I don't believe anything I hear and only half of what I see
