It's good that you found a solution that works well for you. I don't have that problem, but masks are an individual thing, what works for me just might not work for you and that's okay.
This mask is really good for me. I put it on and no leaks and I like the fact that it has three sizes of mask. The only thing I don't like about it is the harness, that it goes under my ears.
Oops, sorry for the breach boss!

Thanks for the review!
And unlike the rest of the forum, there's no such thing as "raising the dead" here in terms of when a thread was last used.

I got this mask from my DME when I picked up my machine. I have the fabric frame installed. When I first used it with a size large cushion, it made my whole nose red - like a nasty windburn/sunburn. Once that resolved, I tried again with the XL size. Works well, doesn't leak much as I toss and turn, and most importantly, doesn't hurt my nose. I like this mask a good deal, and it is my first alternate at this time.
