Large size not large enough
Cuts into the bottom of my nose, need a more flexible material at this area

I was tickled pink till my philtrum got sore!
I was excited to try my new mask and loved the smooth feel of the cloth and the soft touch and the way it served the purpose even though i could feel it was leaking. The headgear and the clips are a completely different matter! There is no way to easily clip and I clip the mask, necessitating the loosening of the cheek straps every time I put it on and took it off. The constant changes in fit caused irritation at the top of my philtrum where my upper lip meets the skin dividing my nostrils. A sore formed there making it impossible to wear the mask till it healed. The concept is great but the design has some issues which will always keep it from being the customer favorite it could be.

Finally a cpap mask for my mouth breathing
Written by Heyfromjudy, -2019-06-24
Best I've tried
I tried several models of full-face masks that were plastic/silicone, and one that reportedly had a gel-foam interface, but all were extremely uncomfortable and it turned out I am allergic to silicone. I would not be able to use CPAP if it were not for this mask. It is by far the most comfortable I've tried and is one of the few on the market that is silicone free. It turned out I did have a mild allergic reaction on my neck to what I presume was from the neck strap, but this was solved by wearing a strip of toilet paper underneath the neck strap. And this allergic reaction was far milder than from any of the silicone-interfaced masks, even when using an uncomfortable mask liner.
Have not had significant leakage problems. Mild leakage problems easily solved with minor adjustments to the positioning of the mask or straps.

Comfort good; seal horrible
The mask was definitely more comfortable than my Quattro FX pro. However I couldn't get it to seal at even 10 level of pressure and I use a level at 15.5. I tried numerous adjustments and placement on my face. I really wanted this to work but had to return it. I was thankful for the 30 day factory return policy and the ease with which cpapXchange makes the return process easy.

Best mask I have used.
Most hard plastic masks with the silicone seal are still too broad for my skinny face.

Leaks like a sieve!
Half way through the night, I changed back to my silicone mask. This mask could not keep a seal! The sound and feeling of the leaking air kept me up. Don't waste your money! I have some issues with the plastic CPAP masks and skin reactions. I was hoping this would help. If I can't get to sleep, I would rather have the skin irritation!

Leaks and is uncomfortable
I have tried this product, first received a medium, returned it for a small due to massive leaks. When I received the small it still leaked no matter how I adjusted the straps and then, after about two to four night use the mask was leaving sores between my nose and my upper lip. I complained three times to the manufacturer who basically ignored me.
I would not recommend this mask to anyone.

great if you are a still sleeper
I loved this for comfort but I am a VERY restless sleeper and would pull my mask off on the pillow so it would leak. Comfort level was a 10 though for someone who doesn't wrestle alligators in their sleep.

My machine is set a 16, this masks will not seal at that pressure. Barely seals at starting pressure of 4 then you move your head and its leaking at 4. I like the mask very comfortable I wish it would seal. I ordered a regular gonna try a small like some reviews suggest a smaller mask might seal. It's worth a shot for the comfort.

Smaller Mask is the key
Even after reading the reviews that go from 1-5 stars for the Dream Weaver Anew I decided to give it a try. I tried the Resmed Mirage Liberty and it was great until I reached my Prescribed H2O Pressure of 15 and then out pops at least one nasal pillow and it blows your mouth open with such forse your cheeks puff out waking you up with a dry throat and even at high humidity. I received the Sleep Weaver Anew with the regular size (My current mask of preference is the resmed P10 nasal pillows, but as I am a mouth breather I have to use a chin strap, NO FUN) so after trying the Anew I found like others have said "LEAK LEAK AND LEAK and that is what happened but just at the nose area at high pressure. so I thought I'd return it for a smaller size and as I guessed boom it sealed great. so I suggest before you give up on the Anew try a smaller size, that might just solve your leak problems, it did for me!

Sleepweaver Anew fit issue
I kept trying for the full 30 days to get this mask to fit but still had a big air leak above my nose. Otherwise I really liked the fit and feel and would recommend that others give it a try.
Written by Chris S, -2016-09-18
High hopes but did not work for me. I found it very difficult to seal and once it was sealed any slight movement would cause it to leak. The plastic elbow has no support from the soft material so any movement on the elbow caused the mask to move and leak. I tried to tighten it more on night 2 to get a better seal and the result was neck discomfort. 2 nights was enough. I sent it back.

Way better than hard plastic
I have tried many different full face masks and they all leak air and hurt my face. The sleepweaver anew soft mask is the best solution for me. Less leaking, much more comfortable on my face. I will never go back to a hard plastic mask.
Written by cwilson, -2016-05-14
It leaks around the eye area no matter much I adjust it. It also would leak sometimes from the corner of my mouth. Material felt poorly made. I don't think it will hold up long. The straps also indented into my cheeks no matter how loss they were. I went back to my total face mask.
Written by Total face mask wearer, -2016-05-10
Please don't give up on this idea, Sleepweaver!!
Why, oh why did they put a dip at the top of the cheekbone area, with nothing -- no strap in the right place, no thickness -- to seal off the hole that a train could drive through? It is so very soft and comfortable, but I can't get it to stop leaking without holding my hand to it. I give it a 2 instead of a 1 to encourage the manufacturer to literally go back to the drawing board and improve this -- you are on the right track!!!!!!!! Please don't give up!!!!!!! In the meantime, I am consoled by the fact that the Remzzz full face mask liners are making the old plastic mask more comfortable than it was before, and with a better seal.

Worst mask I have ever tried.
I don't know who could wear this mask. No matter what level of adjustment you make this thing will not seal! The mask is incapable of sufficient pressure around outside edge to even obtain a seal, especially above the nose.

Cloth full face mask
This mask was the answer to my prayers! I tried 2 other hard masks, and they were both very uncomfortable. I felt like I slept less because of the adjustments I had to make throughout the night and because of the moisture build up. I have neither of those issues with the SleepWeaver Anew. I did order the regular size, but returned it for the small. I now have a much better fit and have no problems sleeping! Thank you!

The softer side of sleep apnea.
I have accumulated a variety of full-face CPAP masks since ,my diagnoses and this model and design drastically reduces the incidence of "face-creasing". With other masks, I had to allow lots of time upon awakening for my face to become normal and presentable. Not so with this soft mask. I definitely get a good night's sleep too!

Good but takes some
After the first night I was ready to send it back because I had terrible face fluttering. I tried it a few more nights and it kept getting better. When you get it right it is wonderful. I am learning some tricks to adjusting it and now I get it right about 80% of the time. When it is right it is comfortable and quiet.

Very Frustrating - Couldn't get a good seal
Thought this would be a great mask no face marks and comfortable, however watched the DVD that same with it and tried it for several night couldn't get any sleep kept blowing air in my eyes it would initally seal and then the minute I moved it would lose it. So unfortnately had to return it. With a slight change on how it seals it would be a great product.

Noisier than your average mask
I thought the cloth would be helpful relieving some of the pressure that I have in the bridge if my nose and this mask helped with that tremendously. However, I am married to a very light sleeper and this mask was nearly as bad as listening to me snore at night (or so she said). It is certainly much noisier than its plastic counterparts and I even thought it was loud comparatively. I returned this mask within the 30 day timeframe and ordered a new full face mask that seems to be doing the trick in relieving the pressure at the end of my nose and is much quieter than this mask. This mask will works well, is comfortable, however it falls short in the noise department.

Comfortable now that I found a way to seal
I loved immediately how comfortable this mask was compared to the plastic full face masks. I could once again sleep on my side without having to carefully place my face in the right indentation on the pillow! However I too had problems with leaks around the bridge of my nose. I called and made other contacts with customer service here and with Sleepweaver without much help, but verified it wasn't anything I was doing. But I wasn't ready to give up yet. One comment one customer rep said was that it sounded like I had a small nose (I think mine was normal to large) gave me an idea. I now tuck cotton balls next to my nose on with side and it totally takes care of the leaks!!! Been doing this for several months now. I tried double sided tape for awhile, but as I like fresh ones fairly often I find it easier just to tuck. Maybe once a month does once fall out. Hope this helps someone, it is a bit of a hassle and I hope the improve the seal soon, but it is overal still better than a plastic mask in my book.

Could not get a seal!
The idea is great, and I was so excited to try this item out. Unfortunately, I was not able to get a seal around my nose/cheek area. I watched the DVD for instructions, I even went to the Website to see if I could find any additional tips. No good. I've given up.

I want to be a person who can benefit from the comfort of the Sleepweaver Anew Mask. It is so delightfully comfortable. I have not, however, been able to figure out how to stop leaks.

May be using it incorrectly, but...
It's not possible to assign a star rating--as a mouth breather who must use a full face mask, my husband had great hopes for this one. Unfortunately, his CPAP doesn't seem to regulate the pressure properly when he's wearing this mask and continues to make a lot of noise. Also, he can't get the proper seal and air escapes around the bridge of his nose

Sleepweaver Anew is a dream weaver
I've used my cpap for over 10 years with complete compliance. I wouldn't nap without my mask on. I have used some of the most uncomfortable masks and headgear. I knew there had to be something better out there. Now I know it's the Sleepweaver Anew full face mask. It take a couple minutes each night to put on and adjust but worth ever second. I would only suggest a change in the snap closer to something that would be eaiser on non-nimble fingers. My sleep quality is greater, mask is comfortable and almost or no morning line markets. I will continue to pay out of pocket for this great product.

I was looking forward to receiving this mask, but now that I have it, I couldn't be more disappointed.

I really like the cloth mask compared to the inflexible plastic one. If I could solve leaks along the upper seam, it would be ideal. I'm not sure if it's a size/fit issue or maybe just the shape of my particular face. And ordering the mask through the website was very simple. Better yet, they offered the lowest price I could locate anywhere on the internet.

soft and great idea
recieed fast, very comfortable and great assistance by phone. however only 4 stars because I measured with the on site assistance and it suggested a regular. I was small in one measuement and large in another so they suggested a "regular" size. Unfortunatly it is too large. I have sent this back and am awaiting confirmation for the exchange to a "small" anew. I am hoping it will be the magic of a sound sleep. we will see!

I am a side sleeper and being made out of cloth I thought that this mask would be a significant improvement over the hard plastic full-face masks that get pushed into my face and nose when sleeping on my side with my face in the pillow.

This was a cheaply made product that I could not adjust to seal. The mask felt like a regular handkerchief that had some thing cardboard surrounding the nasal & mouth openings.

Didn't Work For Me
It's hard to assign a star rating to this. I think the design is an interesting idea. But in reality I believe the number of people who this will fit is rather limited. In my case the length from bridge of the nose to under the lower lip was good. But the nasal interface slot was too wide for my nose which meant unfixable leaks and an unusable mask. If it fits your face perfectly I think you'd probably like it. But I'm just not sure how many such people exist. I had the "normal" or medium size. There is a smaller size but I believe that while it would fit my nose width better it would likely be too short. So, I'm sticking with my Hans-Rudolph.
Written by Glenn, -2013-09-18
Lots of adjusting!
You won't sleep well your first few nights with this mask. It really requires a lot of adjusting and getting used to. The key is to try to keep it as loose as possible and remember that your adjustment sitting up will not be what you need lying down. Adjust it in a lying position! I need a full-face mask, and this fits the bill actually because I am allergic to the plastic used in other full-face masks. This mask will give you a lot of leeway in sleeping positions that you have never been able to achieve. The headgear is really cheaply made. I don't know how long it will last, but you can tell the manufacturer cut corners especially with the side locking device.
