Vitera Full Face Mask by Fisher and Paykel
The Vitera Full Face CPAP mask by F&P is designed with the customer in mind. The mask provides stability, adaptability, and breathability, making it one of the best full face masks that will work in harmony with your CPAP therapy. This mask will give you a better sleeping experience.
Lightweight Frame and Stability Bar
This lightweight, low-profile frame provides a zone of support using a stability bar that allows the cushion to adjust and seal while moving around in bed. The F&P Vitera Frame fits all three size cushions, so there's no need to buy a whole new mask if you just need to change the size. The Swivel elbow that attaches to your hose easily moves around, allowing you to sleep in any position. The exhalation port on the frame has been smartly placed to blow upwards and away instead of downwards, keeping you comfortable.
Freedom to Move
The dynamic Rollfit XT Cushion adapts to your movement during the night by keeping the cushion in place while reducing pressure on the bridge of your nose. This unique cushion shape is designed to fit a wide range of face shapes while minimizing mask leaks. Blue color coding on the cushion and mask frame provides easy identification for where to place the cushion.
Vitera Headgear with VentiCool
The Vitera Headgear features breathable fabric that allows 24 times more airflow and 35% more moisture transfer than previous Fisher & Paykel masks. This VentiCool technology helps keep you cool and comfortable. This custom-made headgear also features two quick release clips on the side of the frame and has a total of 5 different adjustment points adjusting at the top of head, both sides of the forehead, and on both sides of cheeks.

Respshop Product Review
When this mask came out I was very impressed with the amount of research that went into this product! Fisher & Paykel shared with our company what exactly goes in to creating a new mask, and I have to say it was impressive to say the least. I took the Vitera CPAP mask home to give it a go. I usually wear a nasal mask unless I have a cold or unless I am reviewing a new mask, so my preference leans towards the nasal versions. I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the Vitera Full Face mask is. It is also imperative that my line of sight not be obstructed since I like to read in bed, and for a full face mask, this did the trick. A couple of things that I like about this mask in particular is the very comfortable cushion which Fisher and Paykel call the RollFit XT Seal because the cushion really does roll or glide to stay in place as you move, and it auto adjusts to reduce leaks and pressure around my nose.
I also really like the headgear because it was adjustable in 5 areas. Once you have it adjusted to your liking, you have two quick release tabs on the frame for easy release. The VentiCool headgear creates a very stable yet cool feeling to the mask, which means no slipping around while you sleep.
My final thoughts on this mask is that it is very comfortable and a convenient CPAP mask for its users.
Recommended If You Have Facial Hair
If you are still shopping and looking for additional guidance on masks to consider, read on!
We all have unique facial structures and RespShop stocks a large variety of masks for CPAP so that everyone can find something that works best for them. Facial hair simply adds another wrinkle to the search for the mask that is your ticket to better sleep. For you mouth breathing beard wearers, don’t worry. Look for full face designs that rest low on the chin or that have soft frames that conform to the face. The Fisher Paykel Vitera is a traditionally shaped full face mask that sits low on the nose and chin. This types of full face mask work very well with facial hair.
When shopping for a CPAP mask to wear with facial hair, don’t fall into the trap of sizing up. Use size guide and select the size that fits your facial structure. Over sizing results in leaks, frustration, and discomfort.

It seems like people don't know Fisher & Paykel masks as well as Resmed and Phillips masks, but I've had nothing but a pleasant experience with the vitera. It has an excellent seal which rarely, if ever, lets any air escape. I sleep very well and it's also fairly comfortable. Overall, it's an excellent mask with no noticeable flaws.
Subject: Tight but works
The worst pressure points are my forehead and nose. When I adjust my mask too tight, my forehead and nose almost always feel painful by the morning. Also, if you're looking for a mask that doesn't leave marks in the morning, I wouldn't get this one. Every day I have a lot of marks on my face that sometimes takes until noon to go away.
But the mask definitely does its job well. I have not experienced any leaks so far after 3 weeks of using my mask. It sits correctly on my face throughout the night and I don't have to adjust it at all during the night. IT is also easy to take apart and put together which makes it easy to clean. I spend much less time figuring out how to put together this mask after drying it compared to my old mask.
If you're looking for a new full face mask, don't let me discourage you from trying this mask because my face might be a weird shape. My experience was this one was mostly good other than the tightness and the marks. (3/5 rating)
I was very pleased at the speed in which my order was processed and shipped. Excellent service!
I tend to toss and turn a good amount at night when I sleep, so I’ve had a lot of trouble with masks shifting in the past. As such, I decided to look for a design that seemed like it would be very secure and the Vitera seemed like a perfect choice. It cradles your head at almost every point and I can attest that it has drastically reduced any slippage issues I had.
The headgear is great and has 5 stars which is how it’s able to hold on so well. It doesn’t feel overly heavy or uncomfortable though, since the straps are a light and breathable material. On the backside, the part that cradles your nape is a plush mesh. It makes the headgear very breathable/airy, so my head doesn’t get hot anymore. Another huge plus.
Aside from the fantastic harness, the mask is very solid. Large, well-padded cushion spreads the pressure quite well and I had no problems breathing. I personally don’t use glasses but I imagine this mask would work sufficiently with glasses. The vertical bar comes off your face pretty far so I think you can slip glasses underneath.
It’s also nice that the air feed can swivel, that’s a must-have feature in my book.
5-star mask all around. It fits well, feels comfortable, and does its job. What more could you want in a mask?
Things I like:
Right off the bat, the nose cushion is very well designed. It uses something called Rollfit technology which means it adjusts to your face shape and movements during the night. I can’t explain it but it definitely works. No leakage or uncomfortable shifting during the middle of night, I can feel secure that it’ll stay there and do its job. There’s three sizes you can choose, but I recommend just getting the FitPack since it’s the same price and you get all three cushions to try out.
I like the headgear too, it’s not revolutionary but does its jobs well and has some particular strong points. It has five points of adjustment, four for the cheeks and forehead, and one for the top of your head. I had no problem finding a good fit and even though I was a little unsure about the strap over the top of the head, I haven’t had any comfort issues from it. On the back, the part that cradles your head, it’s a soft mesh material. They say it helps with heat dissipation. I don’t have issues with a hot pillow but I think this little touch should help people who do. The clasps for releasing the straps from the cushion are fine, not much to say here but sufficient for easily taking the mask off in the morning.
Things I don’t like:
I haven’t any issues but there is a small potential for future problems with the plastic bar that runs up between your eyes. On some other masks, that is a part that breaks over time. Hasn’t happened with me on this mask, but something worth pointing out.
I've used a CPAP for over 20 years and this is the first mask I have liked. Because of COVID and the need for a new sleep study, my insurance won't cover a new face mask so I bought this one on recommendation of Respshop. This mask doesn't leak and the head gear doesn't shift like other masks. I used to wake up several times during the night just to re-shift the head gear so my mask wouldn't leak. Now it is a lot less. I like that a lot. My insurance company never gave me a facemask option. They don't care about the fit, but if you have options I recommend trying this one and others to see what works best for you.
I have been trying to get used to this machine for almost a year.. trying various masks, styles, sizes, with no positive outcome. Finally, with this mask, comes relief... it's comfortable, stays in place, Finally! for me? this one works.
I like this mask! It's comfortable and quiet. It's also easy to don, doff and clean.
I love the Vitera Full Face Mask by Fisher and Paykel this company is a go to for me. I switch between the Bravida nasel pillows. This has a silky soft cushion when it touches my face. One thing missing is the air diffuser! One improvement in next generation mask, please to have an air diffuser.
