There are still many times when I have to put a hand to my face to make sure I still had the mask on my face. It takes so fiddling to figure out how to set this mask on your face, I and many others tried to pull it up under the nose too hard, causing a sore nose, trying to make sure that it did not leak. You don't need to do this, it actually raps around the bottom of you nose and is not sealed by upward pressure.

This mask cannot ride up. I suggest you give it a try and fiddle away-before you lay down to sleep, give yourself some time to get the fit right.

Something I forgot to mention. I have a pressure of range 15-20. Usually 95% is 17 or less. Would that correlate with other View users as to pressure range?

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop. --Confucius
