Zonk, I am glad I checked and looked into your mask setup. With the chinstrap (not quite as good as yours) The Activa LT with the Softgel Cushion works extremely well for me, so far is the most comfortable setup with the least amount of leak.
This is the chinstrap I use:

Exactly my findings! When I rested my head on the pillow, the plastic straps that stick out to the temples pushed the mask away, so it started leaking like h*ll.
I have been using the Ultra Mirage instead for almost two years and recently I changed to the Mirage Quattro, which proves to be a considerable upgrade.

RE: Quattro FX or Mirage Quattro?
I used the Mirage Quattro for about a year and recently switched to the Quattro FX. I found that I get a much better seal with the Quattro FX if I pull the top part of the headgear down so it is over my ears. Certainly not as it was designed, but it works a lot better for me.

I may look for a generic set of headgear that has straps in that area, but for now I just adapt the existing headgear to work.

This combined with a [link removed] pillow allows me to sleep on my back again.

If you wish to discuss masks, the Main Forum is the place to do it. This area is for reviews. If you want to write a review for the Quattro FX full face mask, you will need to start a new thread. There actually isn't one for it, as far as I could tell.
