The FX leaks at the nose very badly, the standard Quattro FF leaks near the chin to a lesser degree. The stand Quattro FF leaks are small if I tighten it, but it is very uncomfortable. I bought a gel cushion from [commercial link URL removed per Apnea Board rules], but it is clumsy (I have to scratch my nose or face often). Does anyone has similar experience? I am thinking about getting the Mirage Liberty hybrid and try out my luck. B36 mentioned that he obtained a 1-week mask trial, how does he obtain such a trial? Can somebody say something I don't know, I am new to using the CPAP. Thanks

I just walked into my local DME and asked for a Respiratory Therapist. They are the ones that have to fit you with a different mask. I was able to try on a few masks and the RT even hooked it up to a cpap machine to see if there were any leaks. I was told I could return the mask I chose within 30 days and pick out a different one if it didn't work for me.
