Nose grinder under pressure
I liked the mask at first but the results were painful. It is light-weight, fits comfortably well, has great headgear, and doesn't leak despite the high air pressure but that is where the good ends. The first night it tore up the bridge of my nose...really bad. After trying a couple "hybrids" (full face masks that go under the nose) I gave it another chance using first aid tape over the bridge of my nose and re-injured my nose. In total, I have used the mask 5 times....and my nose has paid the price each time. I am done with this mask.
I disagree with the maximum pressure rating. I my machine is set to PSI over 25 and my AHI was numbers where high each night.

I hate that I need a mask but the quality of the sleep I get with this new one is amazing. It seals great, the headgear is lightweight and my package arrived quickly. I will definitely be back for replacement items soon.

Needs Forehead Cushion!!
I want to like this mask , however, after using it for 2 weeks it is going back. I am a large guy, 6'3, 300+ lbs and I struggle to find a mask that I don't have to crank all the straps down to keep it from leaking. I thought this might be the one , however, after using it fully tighten the plastic forehead is starting to hurt my head. I mean physically. I woke up 2 days ago with the skin rubbed raw and a small knot on my forehead where it had been rubbing all night.
I can't say how this mask would work for someone with a smaller face/head. It is, over all, a quality mask. Just not made for larger folk.
Customer service during ordering process was A+

F&P Equipment: well-made, durable face mask and headgear
Used to struggle with ResMed and Respironics masks: ill-fitting, poorly-manufactured and badly-designed; durability was always an issue with these masks, nasal or full-face. I was lucky if I got 3 months out of a mask; the headgear would rot away after 1 year or so. Not F&P - big improvement over the ResMed and Respironic lines. The only issue is that F&P masks are made for use with F&P CPAP/APAP equipment - they have an extremely high leak rate, which requires a durable and powerful turbine (160L/min), which F&P machines have. ResMed and Respironics CPAP/APAP machines, which allow for significant rebreathing of exhaled air, are dependent on low leak masks and are built with mediocre turbines, which barely produce 100L/min at best - their turbine motors and circuitry tend to burn out quickly under the continuous high flow conditions which F&P equipment requires. This is also an important safety issue: rebreathing of exhaled air can lead to performance issues during the day, since you're not getting fully oxygenated air during the night. If you have a mission-critical job, such as piloting a plane or train, or something that requires you to be 100% alert on the job, buy F&P machines/equipment; if your life is less demanding during the day, you can go with a company's products that are less demanding, as well, like ResMed.

The headgear was exactly what i wanted and a a very good price with excellent and speedy delivery. Thank you. I had traveled out of state and forgot my frame so I ordered my new head gear from cpapXchange and had it delivered to my out of state residence in 1 day as I would have been with out my cpap machine for over a week.

One of the best masks I have had so far. Easy to put on and take off.
A few leaks when you first put it on, but after you get settled in and get it positioned right it fits very good.

I Like this mask for several reasons...
I was a bit shy to purchase this mask at first. I have been using a gel nasal cushion mask for about 8 years. I liked it, but to keep it from leaking at the base of my nose, I had to have the straps very tight. It did not bother me, so, I thought all is well. Fast forward to a month ago, and my dentist tells me that I am applying pressure to the upper 6 front teeth and it (and my grinding) were causing my front teeth to loosen. I am 46!!!! At this point, releasing the pressure of the mask was one of my top priorities. Since this had a 30 day trial, I decided to try it.
This full face works like a charm. It has a rollfit cushion that keeps it off the bridge of my nose and it does not have to be too tight on my chin. I know other reviewers have had leaks, and I used to also... but now I use the RemZZZ's. 1) soaks my oily skin, and 2) it stops air leaks. Gosh, I sound like a commercial! But for me it works.
One woman said it annoyed her that the inner part of the mask would fall off when she got up to the bathroom. She was right, I had the same problem. (a small piece of tape at the top of where the forehead bar would have been works wonderfully.) And having no forehead bar is a blessing. Another review said they did not like that they had to keep it tight or the side clips come undone. Fixed that too, by taking one side off the clip, and threading directly through the mask and Velcro it shut, the one clip on one side stays on. It's super comfy for side sleeping...but once in a while on my back, and with the Remzzz on it does leak at the chin. I think my cushion size is too big (even though I measured it with their provided sizing tool.) it is really quiet and the air is gently exiting higher on the mask, so I can't feel it on my hands. (I sleep with them near my chin.)
So far, 2 draw backs- it goes through my humidifier water really fast. The other is that I think their sizer is just a little bigger. I have a large cushion now and I am ordering a medium. It is different for everyone, just keep trying until one works for you! Good luck.

Not the Best
The Mask fits good; I like how it straps around the forehead to help mitigate leaks while lying on your side. The problem is that swivel piece, that the air hose fits on, leaks air all night and is very noisy. It also seems to have rendered my humidifier useless. I no longer get moisture: I wake up with a very dry mouth and throat all the time. I spend too much money on these things for them not to be engineered for a comfortable sleep.

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.

Written by Robert P , -2016-10-27
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Written by Patricia B, -2016-02-24
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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The bottom straps have separated and have become twisted as the foam backing is no longer attached to the material.
