Leaks vs pillow size

OK, I am waiting for some out of the box thinker to say they use o-rings in their nose to improve the seal. Big Grin

I used to have this problem when I used the P10, as well as trouble with the headgear.
I started wearing a Nuance and found a much better fit and seal around the nostrils and the head.
I still have leaks but they are from my mouth.

No, just gasket grease -- er, lanolin paste.

Who knows, maybe gasket grease -- oops, lanolin paste would give a better seal.

The mask does seem to slide a bit more than it used to. My hair isn't as thick as it used to be and maybe that is also responsible for leaks from mask displacement?
