N20 is leaking
#11
RE: N20 is leaking
I have the N30i, and have noticed the same problem with side-sleeping. It's a consequence of the hard plastic in the cushion. Watch this for more.

Of note: the pillows for the P30i are compatible with the N30i frame. They do not have the same problem, so you can do as I did and buy one off of eBay, and see if that works better for you.

I actually would prefer the overall design of the P30i pillow, just without the pillows (so N30i cushion part).

If mouth breathing is an issue, try a Caldera releaf neck rest. You can get them on Amazon. That’s what fixed it for me and is much more tolerable to me than a chin strap. The Velcro on them is crap and wears out fast but that’s easy to fix by sewing on good Velcro.

I also use the N20 (medium) and love it. I can lay in any position I like without any leaks to speak of and never have strap marks. But everyone is different and it may not work you. Just keep trying different ones until get one that works for you.

Thanks I'll look into it too!
