RE: full face mask ideas - again
Simplus does have a forehead support and it is the best full face mask IMHO. I have the Air and the F10. Both leak and mash in too easily and leak when used as directed. The Simplus does leak around the eyes for me but a Remzzs mask liner or a Gecko gel fix that for me.

My pressure varies a lot (it's auto adjusting) but is mostly in the 8 to 16 range.

My leaks are at the high end of that range. I find that the leaks with the Quattro FX are fairly consistent, but for some reason are not with the Air (being low some nights and very high on others).

Many thanks

Have you noticed in Sleepyhead if your leaks with the Air are when your machine has your pressure on the high side?

I second your opinion of the Simplus. After trying several masks, both nasal and full face, I settled on the Simplus. I like the roomy feel of the mask and have almost no problem with leaks. My only issue is with aerophagia when I spend too much time sleeping on my back. However, this problem is not caused by the mask.

They are, but that is true with the Quattro FX too. The thing is, although the leaks go up with the pressure, they go very much higher on some nights than on others with the Air.

The F&P Simplus in fact, does have a forehead support.

I did end up with the Simplus and am very happy.
