Suggestions for replacment headgear
Hi
I currently have been using the FX Mirage headgear, and I love it. For me, personally, IMHO, it fits and works well.
Over time it has stretched, and from the attached photo you can see, I have had to fold it over itself to make it firm enough for me.
   
SO.
What other headgear, would you recommend that is the same or very similar material, and is similar or smaller in size?

I've considered the Quattro Headgear. The top straps look a little to short, in some photos, and others, it looks fine.

Any reason that you do not get a new one ?

I replace the mask and headgear every three months... But I have noticed over the years that any headgear straps will give up their elasticity if not washed periodically. Usually a cool wash and air dry seems to put a lot of life back in my gear.

More times than not, a good soaking / washing in hot water and some Dawn dish soap will work wonders for the strap elasticity. Makes um feel like new again.  like

They smell much better too!
