As for the FFM, I use the Simplus. I tried about 3 or 4 I think and liked the Simplus the best. I have a big problem with leaking at the eye and it was the only one that doesn't do that for me.

I use the Nuance until I get tired of the chin strap (I lip leak) then switch to the FFM for a while.

I like my Simplus, too. It's a nice mask.

I've found that I can snooze in the afternoon with the P10 but find it claustrophobic at night, the N10 is comfortable but I can't seem to stop the leaks, and the F10 is my nightly mask of choice. I do have to have it quite tight though.

My F10 leaked so much, and caused me to have a sore on my nose, that's why I switched to the Simplus.
