(disclosure, I was part of a free trial to give my opinion of this mask)
I have had my mask for one month now. The first night, I had to take it along with me while I slept upon my sister's sofa a few days while she recovered from surgery. Though I did take my former mask, in case this one did not work out.
I have used a CPAP for about twenty years now, I am a fifty three year old male and obese. I have a wide face and have had difficulty with mask fits over the years. I started with the hard plastic nasal mask complete with forehead mount and straps encompassing my entire head. Never was comfortable, always left marks and broke very easily. It seemed I always needed new parts or new mask. A few years ago, I discovered the fabric masks. This was insanely comfortable, but they wore out quickly and would leak at the stitching...worth it for the comfort though. And now this brings me to the Evora Nasal CPAP Mask.
This mask was by far the easiest I had ever set up. I did make it too tight when I first used it...but after re reading the instructions and watching a youtube vid, I saw that the nasal pillow just rests lightly against the nostrils and is not to be fitted tightly. When the air pressure is on, it will conform gently to the nostrils. I was also sent two extra sets of pillows one for a a larger nose and one for a wider nose. I thought I would have to use them, but I never did.
Right away, I appreciated the quiet, it was a bit of getting used to as all the other masks filled me with white noise, but this one was very quiet. The head gear is very light and really does come off and on just like putting on a baseball cap. I do not need to reset the straps to hold the nasal pillows again. It is by far the easiest, lightest and most comfortable mask I have ever used. There are very few 'hard' plastic parts to this and by not having to readjust it every time I go to sleep, I believe there is little chance of it breaking like the older style masks did. I can sleep on my sides or on my back, the breakaway hose does NOT come off too easily. I really enjoy this mask. One reason I waited so long to write a review was my desire to do a pro's and con's style review. I thought over a month's time I would definitely come across some bad things. Nope. Not yet.
It is as comfortable as when I first set it up properly the first night. I have never had to resize it because it came loose. It comes off and on just like the videos show.. a baseball cap. It is that easy and comfortable. When the time comes to repurchase a mask, it will be this one.
Again, I was asked to write a review about this gift mask, but I wanted to find some con's... I did not find any. In all ways this mask and headgear was better than anything I have tried before...including a full face mask in the hospital. I'm sold on it. It is that good.
