Taking a break from the FitLife for a while and
I am trying out a Quattro FX with an under chin retaining strap I made from a 1" wide velcro strip.
My problem with that mask was having it ride up at night and it would let my lower jaw pop out with
much air-escaping fanfare!
I put a stop to that!
I also clean the sealing surface and paint it with an Avery permanent glue stick. (water based/non-toxic/acid free/etc)
Horrors! It works!
Leaks are just about zero now and no slippage.

I also suggest using Pampers wipes rather than daily washing of the mask cushion or using the overpriced mask wipes sold to the unsuspecting masses. Wash weekly maybe but not daily. The Pampers wipes leave a slightly tacky residue of aloe Vera which helps keep the mask from sliding around and makes it seal better. It also may help if you have allergic reaction to the silicone but I can't guarantee that since I'm not allergic. Pampers have no ill effects on the life of the cushions.
