F10 or Simplus
Could not get either mask to seal correctly.
F10 was more comfortable
Simplus sealed better but has the VERY annoying forehead brace.

Recently just got the F&P Brevida and a chinstrap
Occasionally get large leak spikes but I suspect its from open mouth
Very comfortable, some dry nose issues

I sleep on my side and learning to sleep on my back (was a side/stomach sleeper)

Although I am a new user of CPAP I was given the chance to test 3 different nasal masks before I made my final decision. 

PR Pico was OK but had a few leaks. Still very lightweight and easy to use during the night. Pretty noisy though and windy. Lots of air sprayed right infront. 

Resmed Mirage FX was the second one I tested. Never fitted corectly. No matter how light or hursh strapping I tried, the mask was leaking air. Plus it needed readjustment lots of times every night. It was loosing its position. 

F&K Eson was my final choice. Very comfortable, no leaks, extremely quiet and excellent ventilation. It never loses its position no matter how I'm sleeping: sideways or on my back. I believe this is due to its ball joined hose connector: it allows the hose to swivel 360 degrees. In my opinion the best mask for any kind of sleeping.

I sleep mostly on my side.  I have tried a few masks recently and I found the Simplus and the Amara View to be very comfortable for side sleeping.  Unfortunately I was unable to continue with either mask.  I hated the forehead bar on the Simplus and the Amara View bothered my sinuses.

I'm an every-way-but-stomach sleeper, and the ResMed F20 has been great for me. Deets: oval face shape, high nose bridge, mouth breather (due to chronic nasal/sinus congestion).

I'm a side-sleeper too. I use a Simplus full-face mask by Fisher And Paykel along with a CPAP pillow and have no issues with leaking.
