I have a great nasal mask, the ResMed Airfit N30. 2 issues, I’m a mouth breather and have to wear a chinstrap. I wanted to try a full face so I’ve tried the Airfit F20 both for her and the regular in size small. They are too big. When I put the For Her mask on, it goes almost to the bottom of my chin rather than under the lip. If I push it up, it’s too far above the bridge of my nose. The masks both leaked so of course that stopped after tightening the straps but it hurt. Before I bug my RT again for a refit, does anyone have any suggestions? I looked at kids masks but the only one I could find that is full face goes all the way up above your eyes. Thank you!

I tried an F20 but gave up on it. I now use the P10 with mouth taping. Have you considered the new Airfit F30? There is also the quite similar full face Dreamware mask. It has the hose on the top while the F30 has it in the normal location.

I just got an AirFit N30 but I can't keep one of the side straps from slipping out of the fastener. I worry that I'll never clean it because it is so hard to reassemble.

The attachment looks very similar to the one on my P10. I use some 3M Micropore tape over the connection to make it secure. You can get that at Walmart and the like places. It does have to be replaced when you clean the mask or it gets kind of gooey over time. Do you have a manual? See this link:
