The mask is performing like a champ! I just have to commend the service I've received using cpapsuppliesnow. I couldn't ask for any better communication with pricing/servicing and receiving the product in a timely fashion. I'll continue to use you, and especially can't wait for the DreamWear Mask I just ordered! I'll post on my results on that new mask!
I just got my DreamWear and, after a quick tryout, thought I'd give a initial report. I am initially giving it 4 stars because I haven't slept with it yet. This rating value is subject to change.
The DreamWear that I received has the medium headgear and included the small, medium, medium wide, and large nose piece. The instructions state "to use the smallest nose piece that will work for you" and provided a sizing guide which is straight forward. It also comes with an optional mask frame fabric sleeve. . . nice! The main portion of the mask frame acts as the airway artery to the nose piece. If you lay on one side and cut off the air supply, the other side has enough volume area to make up for the restriction and you don't even notice it. It has a quick-release hose adapter, akin to the F-P Simplus adapter.
The DreamWear seems to be aimed at the P10 user market. Since I'm a P10 user, I'm making my comparisons to it. Initially it feels strange not to have something stuck up my nose. The absence of the nasal prongs is really very comfortable and I won't miss that feeling. However, I do have a feeling of apprehension that the mask will want to leak.
Pricing seems to be on par with the P10 and feels appropriate. (If that is a feeling)
A quick observation; This unit is as quiet and lightweight as a P10. Of course, if you've never tried a P10, then this is like describing the taste of an orange.The P10 may now have some competition. JMHO
More to come.

I got the fit pack from my DME, but mine only came with the cushion sizes and a medium frame. I found the small cushion for best, but then when I called them to order my 6 month supply, I accidentally ordered medium cushions. So then I tried the medium cushions. The medium cushion worked just as well as the small, if not even a bit better. However, I consistently had problems with the headgear riding up in the back. I ordered a large frame online and tried that. I had to tighten it quite a bit, but no more riding up! And remarkably, even being tightened, I hardly feel it on my face! With my buckwheat pillow, no leaks. The biggest issue is that it seems to just love to trap humidity in the tube, but with the dry winter air that's okay. Lanolin protects my skin.
