Pilairo Q
This may be the wrong thread for such a question, but....

I have been using a pilairo mask for a while now and have been unhappy with how the strap stretches although otherwise it is very comfortable. I now see there is a new pilairo with an adjustable strap. Has anyone tried this? From looking at the illustrations it may avoid the stretch problems, but may negate one of the advantages of the pilairo -- it's easy to put on and take off.

Any thoughts?

If this is in the wrong place I would appreciate a moderator moving it.

RE: Pilairo Q
The "Q" harness is still easy enough to take on and off. I wouldn't worry about that. The only thing I don't like is that it's slightly less comfortable if you're a side sleeper. The strap ends near the mask are now double thickness with velcro which puts a little pressure on my cheeks. It's a good harness though and I would definitely give it a try.

You might try ebay for a replacement strap.
