One size fits all headgear

One size fits all headgear
Just started using the Air fit F30i.  Loving it.  Great ahi, lower leaks than my F20 Air touch so far.  My only concern is the headgear. As far as I can tell it only comes in one size.  Anyone successful in modifying other one size fits all headgears?  Right now I have it clinched almost as right as it goes and this is my 2nd day. Thanks

RE: One size fits all headgear
It looks like only one head gear to fit all three frame sizes. Don't the straps adjust to your frame/head size? I too am interested in this mask, trying to learn all I can about it.

Yes the straps adjust, but if you have alittle head they can only adjust so much.  I am hoping they make a "for her version".

RE: One size fits all headgear
I found the same problem with the S&P Bravida make. I have a small head and not much hair. Many masks aren't small enough for smaller female heads--or small males for that matter. I have stuck with the Wisp for that reason--they have a smaller frame available and a small cushion for small noses.

RE: One size fits all headgear
If you go to a cpap supplier, it looks like they have a small, standard and large size frame that the cushions attach to. I am guessing that what they call a frame is what has the air delivery tubes that attach to the cushion and goes over your head.. It appears that they come in different lengths for different sizes of heads. I do not know if they can be bought separately.

Also, how is the noise with the air tubes running by your ear, I have tried PR Dreamwear and I did not like the extra sound.

Yes they make different size frames but not different size headgear.  I have sent an email to the manufacturer.  Maybe I'll be successful in my request..  I have not noticed any noise.  It is so light and unobtrusive. I really am excited about this mask.   Only 2 days hope this trend continues.

I could wear a cap to add bulk to my head.. Just a thought.

Good idea!
I have a cpap cap that has a velcro chin strap. If I wear that, then put on my N20 mask, I have to adjust the straps way out.
Downside--if I get up in the night, and remove my mask (because I'm half asleep) then it's a real chore getting my mask back on.
