Sleepweaver Anew Full Face Cpap Mask
Written By: Sunnyslady, Texas 3/30/2017
Mixed reviews on this mask. It is more comfortable than the other 4 masks I have tried. It took a couple of days to get used to the soft fabric feel of the mask but it's better now. Problem is that when the air pressure is high, there is a lot of air escaping around the mask. My husband wakes me up to adjust the mask because the noise is so loud. I got the regular mask but probably should have gotten the small because I have to lap the straps to get a good seal. This mask is, however, much kinder to my face, not causing heavy marks on my face. My nose, however is sore every morning after wearing the Sleepweaver over night.

Great full mask for us side sleepers. Cloth flexes while contacting pillow without breaking the seal, keeps it from whistling and burping. Wife states it is much quieter then my Quatro mask. Can lift mask over the mouth to drink water, no need to completely remove during the night. Only complaint is price should be much lower considering materials used in construction.

Mask was comfortable, but could not control air leaks.
Written By: Denise Collette, LECOMPTON 1/10/2017
worked great for about 2 hours after that leaks even after readjusting
Written By: Paul, Tennessee 9/2/2016
What seemed like a good idea turned sour. The mask is noisy--too much so--and the fit is not comfortable. I put it aside after an hour or so and went back to my regular mask.
Mask would not hold a seal
Written By: Jim, Wisconsin 8/26/2016
I tried this mask and the best thing I can say is that I truly appreciate the Direct Home Medical return policy. This mask would not hold a seal at all for me and I returned it the same day I received it without using it. The next mask sent to me works like a charm.

Mask did not pass the leakage test. Returned for a refund
Don't waste your money
Written By: Dissatisfied , Arkansas 7/24/2016
The ONLY way I've been able to get item to not leak is by tightening straps so tight they leave marks.
Do not buy
Written By: Concerned, 7/12/2016
No hose support means air gets cut off. Leaves raw nose in the morning. Major air leaks unless super tight and laying in your back.
Love the sleepablity
Written By: Sandee, California 7/10/2016
This is the best mask!!!!!!!!!!!!! to sleep in!!!!!
The only down side is under the nose, there is a seam, and certain occasions it rubs me the wrong way,
The only suggestion was to wash the mask to soften the seam. Did that, still really didn't soften it up completely.
My suggestion: Maybe the seam should not be there.
I think all Dr.'s should RX this mask, it would make the transition to being attached to a machine much easier and able to sleep, which is the goal.
fails to seal
Written By: Jim, Wichita 6/29/2016
The nose section does not seal at all. If I go to a smaller size to get the nose to seal the mouth section would not fit. I like the idea but does not work for me at all.
An XS size would be good
Written By: SHERRIE K, FRESNO 6/14/2016
I like the feel of the cloth mask much better but I think it's too big. The mask flutters on one side no matter how tight I make it. Other than that it is more comfortable to wear at night.
Does not fit all face shapes
Written By: Bob B., Columbus 6/10/2016
After using this mask for over 20 nights, i have to say it's light weight but i could never get the mask to stop leaking. I tried all the things I've learned over 30 years with Bi-Pap and nothing worked. So for me, this mask is useless.
Not for people with beards & mustaches
Written By: Dick M, Rolla, MO 4/14/2016
It's a nice device, clever and very light-weight. But the seam between the mouth opening and the nose opening slides up my 'stache and rubs the under side of the central part of my nose. By morning it feels bruised. I tried loosening it, but then the mask leaked all around the edges and air escaped through my beard. Great idea, seemingly well-made, just not for the hairy.

Was not comfortable, and would not stay in one spot. Made sores on my face
Written By: Night Mask, Pittsburgh, PA 3/24/2016
I've got two major bugaboos with this mask- it leaks air like crazy and the attachment points at the mask are no good. What were they thinking...? Alligator clips would have been appreciated.

Leaks round nose. Make tighter then faces hurts
Too much leakage
Written By: Tim, Portland 12/11/2015
I was hoping to get something just a little better than the Elan, which I have used to fairly good results. Just needed a fullface. Way too much leakage, especially around the eyes, which aggravates meibomitis. I even tried it with Tranquileyes. That combination: my head felt like it was in prison! I think it is a good idea that just needs tweaking.
Louder than a standard mask
Written By: Robert G, Greensboro 11/15/2015
I was looking for a mask that was comfortable. Though this mask was comfortable to ware it proved to be annoying. It was much louder than the standard mask that I am currently back using. This mask also felt like I could not breath. Yes, I tried to adjust multi pal time and still could not fall to sleep. After 15 min of noise I changed back to my un comfortable mask. I guess you could say comfort and the loud hissing from the air releasing from the cloth mask was a waist of money and sleep.

I am new to CPAP use,a confirmed side sleeper and mouth breather. The Anew allows me to bury the side of my head into a pillow and for this I am grateful.I am not sure I would have stuck with the hard plastic type but have done over two months with the Anew averaging 8 hours a night.Some nights i have no leaks, some nights i have many leaks. I found with this mask you have to go more by how you feel the next day than by leakage. I adjust it so it is quiet. if it is not quiet I assume the adjustment is off. Some times i find that changes during the night. I do flip my sleeping side during the night. You can't necessarily get an accurate fitting until you lie down with this mask. the side sleeping must block some of the leaks. For me, this is the mask leakage or not. Contrary to others I do get imprints on my face and i have tried using different head gear. I always seem to revert back to the one it came with. I wish they had put whiskers or animal faces prints - it would make the mask so much cuter to wear!

Can't stop mask from leaking air around my nose.
Written By: Tld, KY 9/5/2015
Could never get the mask to seal properly!
Had high hopes
Written By: Renee, Western, NY 8/5/2015
This seems like a great design. We had hoped it would be the answer. But it did not seal on my husbands nose, tried two sizes and even the extra light hose. It just pulled off his nose and blew the air right out.
Written By: Ramsey A, Brampton 7/21/2015
Once I got to know how to get a good seal, I can't think of ever going back to another mask. I don't feel like I have a mask on my face. It just takes a little time to get to know the mask well.

Was having problems with sore nose and sore cheekbones Sleepweaver has helped a lot will stick with this mask
Not crazy about it

I am not sleeping as well with this type mask, may have to exchange
Skeptical at first...but really like this mask
Written By: SJK, TX 3/6/2015
Are you like me, and feel like all of those nose breathers have an advantage? Well they kinda do...but our "Combo Breathing" options are expanding. For me, this mask has been the best...so far. It is really comfortable. I do not get lines on my face in the morning or feel like I have giant cup stuck to my head all night. The average leak rate seems to be a bit higher, and it can take some adjustments to get the mask to fit well around the nose (I get a some air leak on occasion-and no it's not the "kind" of air leak you just thought about.) Anyway, I like the mask, and have continued to use it...even after the 30 day trial.
A good idea that doesn't work for me.
Written By: SteveG, Georgia 3/4/2015
This mask design has a lot of pluses. It is very comfortable and light. Being soft it is not as obtrusive as a hard mask and would allow you to sleep on your side. With that said and as much as I wanted this mask to work, my anatomy isn't of the same proportions as the mask design. This made a seal totally impossible even though it was a perfect size. I will continue to monitor this manufacturer for future design enhancements that might make it a viable option again.

Product was not as claimed at all. Lots of leaks. VERY NOISY.
Didn't Work For Me
Written By: Jim, Rapid City, SD 12/23/2014
Couldn't get a seal over my beard. I had my beard of 12 years shaved off and the seal was no better. This mask is a good idea. It just didn't work at all for me.
does not seal
Written By: B, FL 10/27/2014
I used the size guide before getting this mask and could not make it seal at all.
Written By: Rick, Texas 10/14/2014
There was no way that I could get this mask to seal on my face. I tried every way that I could but had no success. I gave the mask to the person that recommended that I purchase it.
Not For ME
Written By: Jerry B, Pearland, TX 9/12/2014
I didn't care for this mask. I didn't trust the mask staying on while I slept.
Written By: lucky b, birmingham al 4/14/2014
The mask leaked too much, keeping me awake adjusting it. I tried it loose, tight and in-between. It still leaked. I appreciate you letting me try the mask. I'm always looking for something better.
Written By: james m o, mississippi 4/11/2014
the seam between nose and mouth openings are rough on my upper lip and too uncomfortable to use I do not like it at all but I will try to use it again, but it looks like I bought something I can't use again...
Didn't Work for Me
Written By: Still Searchng, llinois 3/29/2014
I thought this would be a more comfortable mask, but I was wrong! It just didn't work for me! I was awakened several times during the night because of the air billowing out from all sides of the mask. And yes I watched the video and followed the instructions to the letter. I was very disappointed n the product.
LOVE LOVE LOVE

I am new to the C-pap experience and am a mouth breather. I tried the hard plastic mask and HATED IT!!! It moved around when I moved and woke me up numerous times. Left marks on my face. I decided to try the SleepWeaver Anew and I now have hope that I can meet compliance and use this mask in comfort ALL THE TIME. I am thrilled with the results!!!! I hope they make it in the leopard print SOON!!
Comfortable But Leaks
Written By: Barry T, Burke 3/18/2014
It is very comfortable and I like it, but can't get it to seal. I leaks mostly around my nose but also on the sides of my mouth if I lay my head sideways on the pillow. The connections for the strap are not very well designed and have to be snapped in. My other mask has a much better way of attaching the straps to make it easy to remove them.
I wanted a mask that I could wear my glasses
Written By: Bruce M, Napa CA 2/12/2014
It doesn't fit very well and is very noisy. I tried several different times and every time my statistics went down.
Leaks every where
Written By: Butch S, North Carolina 2/4/2014
I bought this mask thinking it would be light an flexible which it is, but it leaks everywhere. It is also uncomfortable between the lip and nose because of the rough material.
SleepWeaver Anew Full Face CPAP Mask sizing chart
Written By: Mike M, St. Louis, MO 2/2/2014
Be aware that something seems incorrect on the sizing chart. According to the chart, I ordered a small (which seemed very odd to me, as I am 6' 4" tall). I did return the product (with absolutely no issues w/ Direct Home Medical). I have not re-ordered yet but I really suspect I am going to need a large. I believe the manufacturer has made an incorrect entry of the size reference(s)?
Best mask ever fuhgedaboutit
Written By: Ken, NYC 1/31/2014
I tried nasal, full plastic face masks, all horrible experiences. This brilliant innovative technology works for me. I sleep mostly side and stomach. Whatever position, it conforms well. It's a shapeshifter mask. Extremely comfortable and easy to clean.
Great Idea but lacking substance
Written By: Steve A, Houston, TX 1/14/2014
While the mask is very comfortable, it allows for more noise to escape which bothers my wife.
FABULOUS FULL FACE MASK
Written By: Happy CPAPer, North Carolina 12/21/2013
the SleepWeaver Anew Full Face CPAP Mask is nothing short of fabulous. It's so much more comfortable than the other two masks I have used: mouth-only mask and full face Quadro mask. Thank you immensely to the engineers/designers of this SleepWeaver mask. It is an solution for anyone who is struggling with other masks as I have done.
sleep weaver full face mask---help me
Written By: C, San Francisco Ca. 10/17/2013
I got it and used it just one night. It did not work. I woke up very tired and irritable. The thought of a soft ballon type mask is wonderful in theory. In practice it's a dud. If anyone loves it as I hoped I would I am all ears?
Written By: MJS, Montana 10/14/2013
For almost a year and a half I have been trying various masks. The bridge of my nose is narrow, and this caused leaking in all masks, resulting in over-tightening and bruising. Since I am an occasional mouth-breather, nasal masks were not an option. My face was always marked with blotches and my nose was bruised to the point of pain. When I saw that Sleepweaver had made a full face mask, I decided to try it as a last resort. Much to my surprise I found it very comfortable. I first ordered a medium size, which was too large and caused leaks. I ordered a small, and it fits perfectly. I can now sleep on my side with no marks and no leaks. What a relief! The mask is light and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone who has problems with a hard mask. Or to anyone who would like more comfort!
So Much Better!
Written By: Gloria, Catskills New York 9/22/2013
Received the new soft full face cpap mask and it is a much better feel on your face! No more dent marks on your face! A much more comfortable fit.
best full face mask I have tried
Written By: KDQ, Saint Louis 9/22/2013
Wanted a full face mask for times when my nose is stuffed up. Already a fan of Elan SleepWeaver so was excited when I saw the Anew had come out. I love the soft fabric and fit and use it quite frequently. My quibbles are that I am still getting used to the plastic clip to release the band - it is not as easy to connect when putting on the mask as I would like as I have to futz about a bit to line it up. Also seems to exhaust air more towards the eyes than the other Sleepweaver products. With closed eyes its not an issue though so this is also just a quibble on a very nice product.
Good idea, poor execution.
Written By: Ira, Fairfield, CT 9/18/2013
I was excited to try this product as it looked good in theory. However, when I tried it the first night I found it to be far noisier than my usual mask (I wear the Hans Rudolph 7600 V2 Full Face). I also found it impossible to eliminate all leaks and I felt like my machine was blowing at twice its usual strength even though the settings were not changed. On a positive note, it is very light weight and does not come close to my eyes.
