Look at this FF mask

Found this on a website while looking to help prikkelpitt with his data issues:

This in truly a full-face mask. I wonder how you keep your eyes moist.

Looks like the FitLife. There's only a few that are "true" full face masks.

YIKES! I don't know that I would like this one!

Yup...looks like a fitlife. Not for everyone and, based on my experience with full face respirators, I'm surprised they wouldn't anchor this under the chin and didn't put a 5th connection point at the top for more stability...but I didn't design it Wink

These actually work quite well for people that suffer from claustrophobia.

That *IS* an FFM and not just an Oral-Nasal mask masquerading (intended) as an FFM.

Keep your eyes closed and they shouldn't dry out.

Hello:
I generally sleep with my mouth open so I wanted a full face mask that fits under my chin. I have found Fisher Paykel FlexFit 431 works perfect for me. The FlexFit 431 has the best design and doesn't leak. I have used this mask for four years now and it is the only mask that I will reorder.

Good luck

I like the Innomed "Hybrid" FFM as much as anything (it's really a combo of Nasal Pillow & Oral Mask.)

It's not a comfortable as a pillow (only) mask but it's likely far better than most other FFMs.

Sweet Dreams,
