I've used this one for over a year now.

Pros: Extremely lightweight to the point I don't notice it really; Headgear comes with covers that leaves no marks on my face

Cons: Extremely lightweight. Takes nothing to move it out of place.
I've had other "hose toward top of head" masks before but for some reason, this is the only one that makes me scoot down in the bed because it hits the headboard.
Headgear comes off far too easily. I wake up several times a night to adjust it.
On occaison, like once a month or so, I get a sore spot on my head on the side from the headgear. We've tried to figure out why. I think it must twist or something in the night.

Despite the many cons, I still use the mask. I really like that it is lightweight, I guess. I'm looking to switch (which is why I tried the EasyLife).

It was a 'door prize' item I received from a sleep apnea meeting hosted at a local hospital. I have been using a gel type nasal mask, but decided to try this 'door prize' out. I wasn't sure about the nasal pillows design being able to seal properly. That was a year ago and I have not gone back to my gel nasal mask.

The whole set up is light and comfortable. The pillow seals are excellent under my nose. No more air leakage around my laugh lines. No air leakage means a more quiet sleep that doesn't disturb my wife. Very easy to clean and maintain too.

I am very happy with this 'door prize' item. They have my vote on this one.

Tried this for first Time last night.median was 0 ,95% was 10 and high was 20. Best numbers I've gotten so far. Have been using cpap for about 35 days and tried nasal mask and the pillows.The LT last night gave me my lowest ahi(.2) and lowest leak.slept with the tube attached to head gear and slept through the night. Hope it is always this good and comfortable. Used the swift fx for 2 weeks but leak rate was higher
