I decided to switch to a full face mask from a nasal mask because when I got an APAP machine, the increased pressure compared to my CPAP fixed lower pressure caused a big leak through my mouth. This mask is very well padded and is very comfortable. Like any mask, you have to play with the tightness of the straps to find the right tension so that there is no leak, but even pulling the straps tight is not uncomfortable and does not leave marks on the face. While it was dumb luck that I picked this mask, a respiratory therapist I recently met confirmed that it is a very good mask compared to many others. I am vey happy with it and recommend it.

My best mask
This is the best mask I have found. It is light, easy to take apart and makes no marks on your face. I have not had any major leak problems. By david, Indianapolis
Best mask that I have used
I've tried a lot of different mask. This the most comfortable one that I have tried. The fit is good and the head gear awesome. Once you get it adjusted. By Robert P , Shreveport Louisiana
Like some of the reviews I have just read, I was initially impressed by the comfort of the "rollfit cushion". Which works exactly as advertised, it rolls side to side on my long narrow nose bridge and every little move I make in bed results in a leak that blows in my eyes. This happens regardless of how tight I make the headgear straps. I received this mask at my local DME supplier who have been less than pleasant to deal with when I asked about switching masks when I have not had this one more than 30 days. So I am looking on this website to find something better. If you have a nose like mine, please do not bother trying this mask. By Daryl, York, PA
F&P Simplus Full Face CPAP/mask & Headgear
I had a lot of trouble creating a seal without Leaks. Then I made the adjustments to the head gear tighter. It works Awesome now. The bridge of my big german nose killed me with other masks. The way this masks moves back and forth to Seal & relieve the pressure on the nose works Great. I would recommend this mask to everyone. By Joseph S B, St. Louis, Missouri 63026
Very stylish, poor design
In some respects this is a very stylish (ff a cpap mask can be stylish) mask. Like many other Fisher and Paykel products, they were apparently shooting for high end buyers who buy for name and flash.
The design of this mask just flows. It's even pretty. At first glance and use I thought I'd love it. There's really two separate masks with the face-facing one being attached to the outer, forward mask. The air line (very well designed) comes between these two masks, deflecting noise. But, the problem lies in the connection of these two pieces. The inner mask is supposed to snap into the forward-facing mask or plate. But it does a terrible job of making and keeping this connection. Wake up to go to the restroom, and when you rest your mark on the floor, these two sections separate. Great. Now, when you come back to bed, you have to reattach. This is an absolutely key connection to make this mask work well. Now, instead of going right back to sleep, I'm messing with putting the mask together. This is my chief complaint. I can't recommend this mask unless improvements are made in design. By Michael, Wylie
Good mask, poor fit
I really wanted to like this mask. The build quality seemed excellent, and I was hopeful it would solve a growing mouth breathing issue I'm having. Unfortunately, no amount of adjustments would keep it from leaking. I ordered a medium based on the size guide provided, but I may have needed a small. By Judy, Indiana
Terrible Mask (At least for Me)
I am a new CPAP user and purchased this mask after trying four others in the past month. I could not get the mask to seal and it leaked continuously. By Jim , Alabama
Love this mask. By Jerome, Maryland
Excellent product By Megha, Ny
Not Adjustable Enough
I was unable to get the mask to stop leaking. My CPAP pressure is 20--so high, but not the highest. I could not gt the straps and mask frame adjusted to stop the massive leaks. Every face is different--it's just a matter of trial and error to find the style of mask that works best for your face. By Spidersider, OTTAWA, IL
Having great difficulty with fit of other full face maks. Tried the F&P Simplus full face with headgear. Great fit and seal. Could not be happier. By Neil S, Stuart, FL
Twelve year user of CPP/Bipap. This mask is a lifesaver. Great fit and seal. By Neil, Stuart FL
F&P Simplus Full Face CPAP/BiPAP Mask with Headgear
I have tried many masks, nasal, pillows, and 2 other FFMs; this is the best full-face mask EVER. I use the small cushion but I also bought a medium so I could see which one fits me best, At this point I'm using the small, but if I had to use the medium, I could make it work . The headgear is absolutely luxurious, cushiony soft, and it has plenty of places to adjust, which makes fitting optimal. Great mask, for me, the holy grail. By Patricia B, Owensville
I like it!
I didn't like the nasal pillows and tried this. It fits great and seals well. Just clean regularly. The only thing I don't like is the Velcro on the straps wears out and stars to come loose. When I bought new one I took the old one and set it where I want it and then sewed it in place so it could not come apart. This is not optimum because sometime when sleeping I need to adjust the mask. Overall I like it and am getting my third one! By Dennis, Mississippi
Works well at high IP pressure
My IP of 23.4 has presented me with problems finding a suitable mask. Respironics FitLife has been a savior for me for a couple of years, ...I'm used to it, and I appreciate that the seal pressure is on the perimeter of my face, including across my forehead. F&P Simplus has advantages...it doesn't cover eyes (less chance of eye irritation); seal at the bridge of my nose is comfortable unlike (for me) several other full-face masks; and maintaining the seal requires surprisingly relatively-moderate headgear tension. Simplus's internal volume is less than that of FitLife, and this seems to allow my flow generator's automation to work more-responsively using Simplus rather than FitLife. I am glad to now have two mask designs that (literally) I can live with. By High-pressure, Washington State
It took a lot of playing with to get the straps to seal the mask. I have high cheek bones that causes a sea-saw for most masks. I did need to tighten the lower strap more than I thought but did get a seal. I am an active side sleeper and it works well. Once side note: If your face get greasy or to wet from the humidifier, the seal breaks and it is hard to get it back. Other than that, I really like the mask. Make sure to use the sizing chart. I ordered large, but I think I actually needed a medium. By Carey S, Grand Junction, CO
F&P Simplus Full Face CPAP
The F&P Simplus is the first mask that I jave used that allows me to get a full nights sleep. By Michael B, SOUTHFIELD MICHIGAN
Another Strikeout: F&P Simplus
I've been using CPAP/BiPAP machines for 20 years! I have never been able to find a good mask. I have been using a Fischer & Paykel Flexfit 432 for a few years now but have developed a bad sore on my nose - I had it cinched down very tight so it wouldn't leak and wake up my husband and me. I just tried the new F&P Simplus. When I took it out of the packaging I had very high hopes that I had finally found a good mask. But no. It leaked at the eyes/nose bridge and no matter how I adjusted the head gear it would not quit leaking. Bah humbug. I returned it. By zenbozo, Denver, CO
Good product Delivered on time
Product came in excellent condition. purchasing process online was easy. I recommand this place for shopping By khan, MI
Works with beard and sleeping on my side!
From day one I used the PK FlexFit 431 but always had problems with leaks. I am a side sleeper and have a goatee too, so I just dealt with the leaks as best I could figuring that was as good as it was going to get. When time came to replace my mask again and I thought I'd roll the dice and try this mask. I never would have done this except for CpapXchange's 30 day return policy. I am so, so glad I took the gamble and tried this mask!
All I can say is WOW, no leaks... nada, zilch, zero! I have not had a better night sleep ever nor have I ever felt better in the morning. The small size of the mask keeps it from getting moved out of place when I'm on my side and somehow, by some miracle, I get a great seal all the way around despite my beard.
I have found my saviour in this mask. Of course as all faces are different your mileage may vary, but for me it is absolutely perfect. I plan to buy a few more in the coming months to stockpile them for the future, just in case PK does something dumb like discontinuing the line. Thank you CpapXchange for your 30 day guarantee. Without it I probably wouldn't have been brave enough to try something new. I am so glad I did. I hope everybody that uses CPAP can find something that suits them as well as this mask suits me. By Armando P, Indianapolis
Started out good
Thought I finally had a good mask, but as my machine slowly built pressure up I could not get to seal properly and air was blowing into my eyes. Just didn't seem to be enough vent holes to let air escape when exhaling By Randy, Iowa
Great Full Face Mask
I am a mouth breather and have used many full face masks over the years(15). After using this for only two weeks, I would say the Simplus is the most comfortable, best size and fitting mask yet.
The head gear is much better than the cloth velcro kind. The mask has been slipping out of position by the morning, but I think I still might need to find the correct positioning of the straps. Overall I would recommend it for comfort. By GMB, South Carolina
A great full face mask for a new user
I've used a F&P Opus 360 nasal pillow mask for two years. I decided to buy a full face mask to use during allergy season, and when I have a head cold.
I did a lot of research and opted for the F&P Simplus full face mask because it puts minimal pressure on my face (leaves no marks in the morning), is easy to clean, and the replacement costs are less than other masks.
I've worn the mask for two weeks, and like it almost as much as my Opus 360. Be sure to clean the mask every day with a mild soap/water (such as Ivory clear/unscented HAND SOAP). Cleaning is good for health reasons, but in the case of this mask, excess skin oil build up prevents the mask from making a good seal. Cleaning takes only 1-2 minutes.
By Steve from Nashua, Nashua, NH
Cpac full face mask.
The mask fits good and it is a lot quieter than my previous one. It does not wake me in the middle of the night hurting my face. Would like to try a different one also. By Diane C, Elm City, NC
Best mask for me
This mask is extremely quite. Smaller coverage than the average full face mask. I am a side sleeper and it is perfect for me as the size of the mask is smaller it does not shift when sleeping on my side. By Raymond Henry, Rutherford College
F&S SimPlus Mask
This mask did not fit my face well enough that I could get it to stop leaking. Others have given it high ratings so I think it's a matter of the particular shape of my face. It's worth a try, especially since it came with a 30 day return if not satisfied offer. By surfer dude, southern Illinois
Simplus. Full face mask
This is the best so far for me. Comfortable, no leaks, simple like the tittle By Coffeewood, Denmark Maine
Best costumer Service By Frank, West Bloomfield, MI
Great mask crappy headgear
Have ha this mask for just over two months. About two weeks in the lower left side strap separated. Could still wear it just needed to be a bit tighter. One month later other side is broke. Get replacement thinking I over tightened it and ill just have loose. Pull from package and one week later same issue. Looks like flexible material is not designed to take the sewing on this as it is only breaking were stitching is present. I'm not buying again. If there is no other headgear then time for new mask too. By James, Wisconsin
Simplus Full Face Mask
I wear a small mask. This is the first mask n two years that I really liked the first time I tried it on. It is lightweight,better than the comfort blue gel I was wearing. Does not leak. By Karen, Kentucky
The bottom straps have separated and have become twisted as the foam backing is no longer attached to the material. Have had the mask for 2 months and expected the headgear to last longer than it has. Otherwise great fit and less air leakage around the face with the full face mask from what I had before. By Scott, Washington State, USA
F&P Simplus Full Face Mask
Of all the cpap masks I've tried in the past two years, this is my favorite; It is a very comfortable full face mask that hasn't caused any bruising, and is very simple to take apart and to clean. By Robert M, Fresno
