True and don't underestimate the importance of harness adjustment. I replaced my old harness with a new one and had a surprising struggle with leaks all night. I finally discovered the top head band strap was too tight causing the mask to sit a silly millimeter too high on my face. The resulting leaks into my eyes kept me awake. This may be rather obvious but I was amazed that such a small adjustment could cause such a big problem. Shock-2
