The frame is compatible with the SoftGel , it took a while to find the right adjustment but it is the best mask i have used .
It is very light and comfortable mask that provide good seal even with the straps loose with no annoying leaks or noises .
The headgear is very stable and it is easy to put on even in the dark and it seals quickly and comfortably .

I have been a CPAP user for just over 1 year this month. I have had great difficulty finding a mask that would fit and feel comfortable. I have a condition called "Rosacia" which causes swelling of the nose( just like W.C. Fields),and makes finding a mask with a good fit.
Finally tried the Res Med Mirage Activa, Large, with great success. Although I had`to order a Large size`headgear as the unit came with Medium headgear it was worth it.
All in all, I am very pleased with the mask and its fit!
Would recommend it to anyone !

I do too. I have a full beard and moustache, the Activa was recommended by my RT...and I just checked - for the last 30 days my 95th percentile leak rate is... zero. Max was 3.4.

After 10 months of trying various mask setups including FF masks such as Respironics FF Full Life (total waste of money), Resmed Mirage Quattro (the best of my FF collection) Quattro FX (could never get the leaks under control) Mirage FX Nose Mask which I also had leaking problems I finally found the most ccomfortable and best working setup for myself.
The Mirage Activa LT with medium headgear and large softgel mask cushion with [link removed] Ruby Chin Strap is the best and most comfortable combination I ever had. It is easy to put on, do not have to have it too tight and no leaking problems, so I am finally happy with this setup.
I also give it a Five Star rating, it is ecellent design with the right size and mask cushion combo which of course can vary by every individual.

Activa LT is my mask of choice. Yeah its a bit bulky for a nasal mask (compared to Mirage FX or Wisp), but its the only mask I've ever used where I can get leakage down to 1 digit (usually 3-4 l/min) consistently. And as someone who tosses and turns a lot and am a side sleeper, well I'm challenged with leakage with other nasal masks. And it needs very little adjusting once the initial adjustment was made. Key is to leave it loose (I found this reduced the leakage for me). So for me I give it 5 stars.

Truly appreciate mask reviews like this one.
Just finished trying 7 different full face masks.
Issue I have is irregular mouth breathing...normally a nasal mask would suffice. I have worn a pap-cap for about 3 years. Just plain got tired of doing that. My DME has said--FFM of course.
None was comfortable. Maybe I'm picky, but I have been compliant for over 15 years.
Back to a nasal mask.
I am now using a pad under my chin to hold it closed. Very comfortable.
No more pap-cap, though it served me well for the time I used it.
My what we do to be compliant.
