Suggestions for a chin strap??
I searched the forum regarding chin straps to get some feedback on chin straps. One post suggested a ruby, though there are several ruby designs. Does anyone have any suggestions for a chin strap for use with nasal pillows??

I like the Pap Cap because it's all cotton and adjustable. It's pretty much a personal preference, however.

I purchased my Ruby style chin strap from Supplier #1 and am very happy with it. It's the first one that has worked for me.

It can be frustrating finding the right one but this one is it for me.

Did you check the review section?

As for the "Ruby-like" from Supplier 1, I found that chin seam to be a major PITA.

The PapCap is great for lip leaking but can move out of place easily.
