Same here, DB. I can go several weeks and the leaks be just fine the wham, suddenly I can't control anything. Then, back to controllable leaks again. Aliens.

Terry, I look forward to hearing how it goes for you.

I tried one of the early Simplus masks and found it leaked a fair bit. Good that they listened to the feedback!

For masks that handle higher pressure, I know a few ffm and tfm's that do well, but they can be a bit harder to get used to. Here's hoping that the Simplus does well for you.

Simplus + Remzzzs works best for me. Solves the leak issues.

Wow! RE: Looking for FFM or Hybrid mask suggestions . . .
Thanks to everybody who recommended the SImplus.

It fits perfectly, doesn't leak and doesn't hurt!

My main mask is an Amara View and my backup is an F&P Simplus. I had to learn how to use the View. I keep the Simplus for days my nose is out of control due to allergies or a cold. I have tried just about every other FFM. These are the two best for me.
