I especially like that it COULD be removed if desired. I think people feel better about trying this modification if they don't have to "cut" the existing headgear and know that it can be restored.
It's mostly psychological on that point, but the way you modified it also looks highly effective.
So much so, that I MIGHT even modify my old one when the new mask arrives this week.
I probably don't NEED the modification but since my recommendations have affected so many people it would be nice to try the idea and be able to write definitively about the efficacy of it.
