Thanks Kath. My sister in law in USA says someone in her self help group who tried everything else ended up with a total FFM. My sleep tech in Oz has never obtained one to try as we both agree they look so overwhelming. Perhaps when I report your positive experiences as well she will now do so. I am currently using a Chiroflow pillow (water base, conventional pillow top). It works better than any of my previous pillows but it sounds like the FitLife might require the newer design pillow you mention on your site.

A few people have recommended the FitLife FFM but I can not stand leaks and air blowing in my eyes would not be acceptable. Can anyone comment on this particular aspect of this mask ?
