2 Item(s)per pageMore difficult to use and clean and not as good a fit as the Comfortfull 2 mask it replaced - Progress? Definitely not! Review by Grant
Value Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of UseI will definitely not buy another and am looking for a different manufacturer next time around.(Posted on 26 April 2018)
A big disappointment Review by Grant
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortAfter years of using - reasonably successfully - the Comfortful 2 mask - I think I went through 5 of them in all in a 10-year period, the Amara has been a great led down. It is neither as comfortable nor as convenient, and removing the mask from the straps each day to wash the mask essentially means refiguring out what lengths the straps should be, as there are no quick connectors on the top part. Though not over-tightened, it leaves my face scrunched up and marked in the morning. As with so many products, I can not understand why a manufacturer of a popular and successful product has to 'muck about with it' or, in this case, drop it altogether.(Posted on 12 April 2018)
