Resmed Mirage Quattro usually does best with facial hair.

Big face goes with the big head but I actually use the masks one on top of the other.

RE: Mask for those with beards
Just wanted to share that it took me a few months to acclimate to a nasal mask and chin strap where I somehow learned to keep a seal with my tongue while asleep and not require the chin strap to be so tight. So, if you don't like the FFM there is still hope of making it work with a nasal mask.

RE: Mask for those with beards
Has anyone with a beard had any experience with the F&P Forma? It appears to fit under the chin which has some logical appeal. Thanks.
