With a light weight headgear that rests comfortably on your head during use, the Respironics Amara Gel Full Face mask will deliver exceptional CPAP performance without irritating you during your sleep apnea therapy.
Comfortable Gel Cushion
A bonus comfort feature, the gel cushion will rest comfortably on your face and comes in four different sizes. The gel will mold to your facial structures to form a perfect seal around the nose and mouth to ensure that you are receiving exceptional CPAP therapy without major leaks. The mask cushion is dual walled to help reduce or eliminate leaks, with the outer cushion wall conforming to your face and the inner wall helping to form a tighter seal. All of the full face cushion sizes, from petite to large, are compatible with the headgear.
Rests comfortably on your head helping reduce discomfort during CPAP therapy. The Amara Gel headgear was designed to be a "single click" headgear which makes changing your cushions easy and quick for daily maintenance. Simply unhook the cushion to take out and wipe down, we recommend purchasing CPAP mask wipes or using warm water and a mild detergent, and then hook the cushion back in. When you hear the click, your cushion is securely in place. The quick release tabs also help the CPAP user to easily take on and off the mask during the night by easily using the headgear clips.
For You and Your Partner With an increased number of exhalation ports of different sizes, the Amara Gel is whisper quiet during operation. A quieter mask allows for you and your partner to rest peacefully during CPAP therapy.
Forehead Support That is Adjustable and Comfortable
There is a fine-glide feature that allows you to change the forehead support depth with an easy adjustment. The forehead support can be adjusted in small increments which will help you form a better seal on the mask during CPAP therapy. The crown strap is great for stability and support however you may have trouble wearing your glasses as you do not have an open field of vision. However the way the frame is designed you are able to get a good fit every time.

Your mask, and specifically your seal, should never cause you any pain. If you notice a leak in your mask due to the cushion not forming a seal around the nose and mouth, tighten the headgear until it is comfortable. If the mask is still leaking when your mask is comfortable, do not continue to lighten the mask to a point in which you feel pain or discomfort, instead purchase a different sized cushion. Performance and comfort should go hand in hand with all CPAP masks.

Subject: Gel is great
Wanted a full-face gel mask and so I found this mask. Very happy with it, the gel does make the cushion much more comfortable. Strong seal, good air flow, all that helps make for a very good sleep. The forehead pad feels fine, doesn't cause any red marks. And the headgear is nice and comfortable, it holds on tight without causing pain.
I’ve heard good things about gel masks but I prefer full face mask user, so I couldn’t get the ComfortGel one that’s very popular. This seemed to be of a similar concept however, so I picked it up on a whim and I’ve been very happy with it.
Comfort: The cushion is lined with gel which helps to conform to your facial structure/nose. I’ve found this to be very helpful and it’s amenable to a variety of angles and facial differences. Had my wife try it and she thought it was comfortable too, so it seems adaptable. It’s also a dual-wall design which helps for fit and seal. I can see why people like gel cushions so much and I can’t imagine myself moving away from them in the future. As for the rest of the mask, it’s comfortable as well. The straps are fine to adjust, the material is soft, and there’s sufficient hold points. It uses a forehead pad which isn’t a bother, it spreads the weight out well and I’ve avoided lines and imprints.
Performance: The dual layer design helps it seal up well. I’m able to get a tight fit around my mouth and nose, which keeps the air from escaping. Breathing has been excellent and almost no air leaks out. Also, the vent design helps to diffuse the air exhalation which has been nice for my wife when I’m sleeping at night. All in all, this is an excellent mask which I would highly recommend.
FWIW - I've had an Amara Gel mask for about a month now, and really like it. It's comfortable, seals well with not too much pressure, and allows a mouth-breather like me to get through the night pretty well.
There's one point that could use improvement: The vents for the mask are at the elbow where the hose attaches. I would prefer these vents to be in the mask itself, forcing fresh air up and over my mouth and nose.
The mask separates into the headgear and mask sections, and is easily cleaned.
It is very stiff and is causing air leaks. It is also causing my nose to be raw.
I buy it and this week I get advisements orders come with free tubing this week
I bought this for my family member. This mask is soft, but the air leak is not preventable. I have to buy a different one.
I found the mask to work well, with little leakage. I do have difficulty with the top strap slot. For some reason, the slot is split in the middle and the strap comes out too easily.
This is the most comfortable cushion I've had - with a better frame I'd give it five stars.
