I was very disappointed to see that this mask has been discontinued. I've been a CPAP user for 9 years and this is the only mask that fit me. I have tried them all. The trick with this one, which took a long time to figure out (and maybe many people didn't try this), is to install it exactly as shown in the picture of the artificial head. This is tricky because the top strap of the headgear "wants" to be where your hair whorl is but really needs to be at the top of the skull. This takes repeated adjustments of all three straps, but when I eventually figured out the correct combination, it was the perfect mask. This is a crude description, but I believe it is more suitable for people with rounded heads vs. more rectangular heads, so it is not for everybody, but if you have a gently rounded, upside-down-egg-shaped head like me, it's perfect.

the perfit mask for megene By gene, Alabama
the outer seal was too loose or flimsey for me to wear and makes it more difficult to breathe with. I tried to see if it would get better over time but it only has gotten worse By Johnathan, Miami FL
Blow your hair back
I purchased this mask hoping for a good seal & the mask staying in place while sleeping. Unfortunately that is not what I got. I tried all 3 mask inserts, Tried the headgear adj. every which way to no avail. This mask leaked so bad that my BIPAP machine would not come down off from high air & cycle. So back it goes to try something else. By Dave , Iowa
Full Face CPAP/BiPap Mask
Too much mask in your face. I would need a xsmall in order to fit properly which they don't have. There should be a design for female faces. I just can't wear it. By Snewell, Delaware
FullLife Full Face CPAP/BiPAP Mask
Was worried at first after reading the other reviews about this mask. I actually like it. Sure it made my nose sore te first few times but not anymore. It stays in place and so far no leakage. I like it better than my other more expensive mask I had. By Beverly, Georgia
Full face mask
I received the mask very quickly. I am in the process of changing from a full mask with the nose plugs. This one doesn't have the nose pieces. I like it really well. It was hard to get use to having pressure on the top of my nose. I put a bandage on and have no trouble. It seals nice, and is very quiet. By Picky Person, Broken Arrow
FullLife Face CPAPA/BiPAP MAsk with headgear
In short, I'm quite disappointed with the design.
1) There are no quick-release clips for the mask. This means you have to find the "sweet-spot" on the velcro strap every time you remove the mask. Of course you could slip it off as it stretches...but that recourse gets old.
2) The exhaust outlets for the air are on the side of the nasal center-piece. Nice try, but if you are a side sleeper, the exhaust will make an air-noise either from the pillow or from the sheets.
3) Overall fit is disappointing. The top part of the rubber "insert" rubbed the bridge of my nose raw in just two nights. Any adjustments to address this would just introduce air leaks.
Sorry, but I'm reverting to my old mask. By Art, Olathe
The mask is excellent and very comfortable. The service was quick and deliverey fast. I will re-order from this company. By Chris, Adams
excellent product and great service
I had to purchase a mask out of pocket thanks to my cheapskate health insurance. I am on a fixed income but found a mask I liked for 50% off. It wound up not being in stock but I was given an upgrade for nothing extra. I am a customer for life. By Very pleased, Midwest U.S.
FullLife Full Face Cpap/bipap mask with headgear
The whole concept is wonderful! It was comfortable, with minimal facial contact.....but the sizing s,m,l, none would fit my face without leaving horrendous marks and sore spots on my nose. This product was made by Respironics and I am tempted to try Resmed's version of this product. By Joni, lewisville, NC
Product received as described and in a timely fashion By Snoring bear, KCKS
Takes time to get used to
I used it off and on for the first few months. I had a hard time getting used to it. I have used it now for a couple of years and I love it. It does not wreck or catch my long hair. There are slight red marks in the morning on my nose and the side of my face but they are gone by the time I get down stairs. By YVONNE F, AUSTIN
Full face mask
The straps make it difficult to put on. The plastic pieces to hold the mask on make a deep impression on the skin. It takes HOURS for it to go away. By Mary, Honolulu
Full life full face cpap/bipap mask with headgear
I love the simplicity of the the mask. the entire mask is two peices, the frame and the mask itself which is soft rubber. Crazy about the simple disconnect which makes it easy to go to the rest room without having to adjust the mask. Do have a problem with the mask not being deep enough so that it presses down my nose but for the price, I've paid much higher price for masks that were a whole lot more uncomfortable and that were made up of so many parts were fated to fall apart.
By Rebecca , Athens, Georgia
great fitting mask, shame about the headgear
I ordered this mask a couple of years ago along with my regular mask (forma) that I was using at the time. for the price I had to try one and I was so glad I did. this mask is one of the most comfortable masks I have ever used, no forehead support to leave marks. it supports it self 100% with the silicone cushion only so NO RED MARKS! Chin strap helps keep your mouth closed while you sleep. what else can I say it fits perfectly! but they really dropped the ball by sending the mask with such a cheap headgear. low quality material used in the headgear allows it to stretch out I a couple of months and the worst part is no quick release! this mask could have been a front runner with the big boys if they would not have over looked this one little detail. all in all still very happy..........never slept so well! By Dan B.,
I had the mask with small medium and large seals. The medium fit the best, but bruised the bridge of my nose. The large leaked as soon as my pressure ramped past 7!!! By Marvin, GA
third mask..so far the best
I like the way it fits, no forehead pads, headgear doesn't rub on my ears. It leaks if the pressure gets too high (past 11). Easy to take off and on (once the straps are set). easy to clean. By Ken B, Oklahoma
Best mask yet!
I've used a cpap for 14 years and this is the most comfortable mask I've had. Even with a goatee, it seals perfectly. It makes no "squeaky" noise putting it on or taking it off. By WCH, Idaho
This new mask fits well but does make your bridge of your nose hurt after a couple of nights. That is the only thing that I would change. By Christopher M, Auburn, wA
FullLife vs Quattro FX
Like the mask a lot cause it doesn't have the forehead bridge. It is comfortable. I only wish it had the quick connect clips like on the Mirage Quattro. If it did have the clips i would of given it 5 stars. By Marvin, Washingtom
terrible mask. just got it and never stays tight. waste of money By Pat, ohio
I purchased all three size face pack because I have trouble deciding what size is best. I started with medium for several weeks. I had trouble getting a good seal. Each morning the bridge of my nose would be more red and swollen than the morning before. I then tried large size. It doesnt leave sores, but I cannot get a good seal. By Lyndel, Tennessee
Works fine, but loud
Review title says it all. I bought this for use only when I have a blocked nose. I guess I'll have to be in the guest room, coz this sucker is loud, and makes my machine work harder and louder too. By Charlie , Dc
Hated the mask
For starters there is no quick release tabs on the headgear, so you have to loosen the straps on one side to get the mask on and off, so that means reajusting every night. The straps also rode on the top of my ears making my ears very sore. Once I got the mask tight enough to stop leaking, the top of the mask rode so hard on the bridge of my nose it bruised it. I tried all the different sizes and they all were bad. After 4 miserable nights I gave up and threw it in the "dead mask" heap in the closet. By Annie, Wisconsin
Great if you sleep on your back and never move
First you have to mess around tightening 4 velcro straps every night. NO clips! Then if you do happen to fall asleep, the straps slide around when you move. Maybe I need shave my head. By Shirley K, Great Falls
This was exactly what my husband needed! Less than half the price we had purchased before, perfect fit, and the lady who sleeps next to him couldn't be happier. We are both sleeping better than we have in months. And it was delivered in less than a week! Will definitely purchase from cpapxchange again! By Betty F, Texas
full face mask
I tend to not blame the mask. but I am not happy. I'm a big guy, (300lbs.) and have a mustache to boot! even large masks do not fit well, this one rubs a blister on the bridge of my nose. This one is just not big enough, and I have trouble with nose pillows. By Don-Texas,
Probably the most comfortable mask I have ever worn, the service provided by cpapXchange was extraordinary and the price could not be beat, 5 star plus rating.............. By Michael , Greensburg, PA
Head gear and mask
The most comfortable mask I've ever had. It allowed me to wear the mask the entire time I was asleep. This was something I was having an issue with, I would rip my masks off half way through the night. Since getting the new mask and head gear the problem is gone. By Joan, New Jersey

I love this new mask for me, It is well fitting, quiet very comfortable to wear. By Debbie H, Flint, Michigan
Worth getting used to
I have used this mask for about three years now. At first I could not get it to stay tight. I would use it for a few days then go back to my old nose only mask. I have allergies so I need to mouth breathe so I would try it again. Either I got used to it or it got used to me but it now never leaks, and is great with my hair. I hated having hair plastered to my head. I love the chin strap. This is just the best mask ever but I almost threw it out in the adjustment stages. By YVONNE F, AUSTIN

THE STRAP LOCATION ON THE MASK DOESNT GIVE A GOOD TIGHT SEAL..THIS NEEDS TO BE REMIDIED.IVE WOUND UP HAVING TO HOLD IT WHILE I SLEEP..WISH I STILL HAD MY OLD RESPERONIC MASK By BIG TIM, W. NY STATE
Good Piece of Equipment
I have used this model for four years and love it. It is a lot easier to wear and more comfortable than the hard plastics mask. By David, Fort Worth
Good, comfortable mask!
I really like this FF mask. It's a very under-rated mask, and I'm glad I gave it a chance. The cushion is very flexible and conforms very well. My prior mask caused nasal bridge pressure and pain, but this one does not. For that alone I recommend the FullLife. Plus the cushion comes out in one piece for quick, easy daily cleaning. Plus I love the built in chin strap because when I open my mouth at night, the chin strap pulls the cushion down along with it and helps keep the lower seal tight. Perfect. This mask does have a learning curve with the headgear, but once you read the instructions and learn it, it's as convenient and easy to use and adjust as most other masks out there, even those with quick clips. At high pressures the mask does balloon out a bit causing leaks by the nose, so I have had to tighten the straps to cut the leaks. Once adjusted, it holds the seal well, even if you move around or sleep on your side. All in all, I definitely recommend it. By PF, Chicago
Of the many I have tried. This one works the best for me. Only problem is the neck strap need redesigned. I have I pressure BIPAP unit. After about four months the mask starts to get hardened and leaks. Problem now is I can not sleep with out it. By Rick, North Canton
hard to position and does not seal well By colfaxfred, colfax
