Changing headgear for P10 mask

I'm going to attempt a headgear change. The flimsy straps for my P10 mask are driving me crazy. If I put one on top of the head and one behind the head, it is too loose. If I put both behind the head, it is still a bit loose and comes off during the night after an hour or two. The cheap little clips for the straps are worthless and pop off. I tied the straps and then put the clips on top of the knots and that helped me to keep it on for about 4 hours, so that seemed to help. I think that the issue is the straps are simply too thin width-wise and not physically strong enough. Plus the whole design of the straps being so close together is horrible in and of itself. I see that some people have converted various masks with different types of headgear.

I've found posts that reference switching the P10 mask headgear with the Swift FX headgear, but there seems to be several different types/models of headgear. Is there a particular kind that will work best with the connections on the P10? I know that I'm going to have to rig it to connect it, there's no question about that. Just trying to make sure that I can get it to line up as closely as possible and be of sort of similar design so that I can make it happen. Any particular model that would work best for this?
