Your sizing instructions seem off

Based on your sizing instructions, I ordered the extra large size. But, the delivered product is much too large.
Good after a break-in period
Written By: HalloweenWeed, Maine 10/2/2017
Works pretty good after a break-in period of almost a month. I read others complaints about being too tight and needing a size larger. I see that they have revised the size notations, and removed the instructions for measurement of size since I purchased (did they also increase the numbers?). I measured 21+7/8", and I went to the next size larger (of 2), and found it very tight around the back of my neck, and had to loosen it to the point that the area near the hook material ("Velcro") was irritating my head as it was now exposed, due to the (loose) adjustment. I covered it at night with a piece of fabric for comfort. After 2-3 weeks it stretched out a bit and now the adjustment is as shipped and comfortable without the piece of fabric (but I have tightened the upper adjustment just a bit). II tried the adjustment as shipped at first but it made me sore - too much rearward pressure on my jaw. If you have a much bigger jaw around rear of head head measurement, I guess it would be too tight for you. Bottom line: Now I find it works pretty good, even with a mask that goes over both nose & mouth ("full" mask). Not looking forward to breaking in a replacement in a year or so. I just wish it didn't mash my hair down.

It does the job. I'm getting a much better night's sleep since I started using it.
Not all that pleased with this product

First of all the website here doesn't show you how to measure your head to determine which size you need to order. And after all this time since deliver (about 1 month) I think I may have been putting it on wrong because again the website doesn't show a back view of the chin strap. The way I have been wearing it made it seem way too small for me so I have the velcro out as far as it will go. But the other night I looked at this thing and thought what if I put it on this way. It seems to work just as well. I wish they could show you how to measure and how it's supposed to go on your head.
Great, simple device

This is the only chin strap that I've found for keeping my mouth closed while using my CPAP machine. Very nice!

I had one of these chinstraps several years ago and I gave it to my son. He liked it as much as I did. I do not snore. I use this to keep my lips closed as I "sip" air when I sleep and dries out my mouth

Purchased item for my 92yo mother who has been dislocating her jaw when she yawns. It works very well for this, offers support to prevent her from opening to wide. Cons: stitching on the chin support irritates her skin. Velcro is just glued on, within one week it came off. I will sew both Velcro straps on.
This strap did not work for me in the way that I hoped it would
Written By: Long-time CPAP user, Lexington, MA 9/14/2017
I purchased this chin strap in the hope that it would work a little better with the slightly pointy shape of my head than the one I have been using, which is effective, as long as it doesn't slip off the tallest point on my head (even if this review isn't useful to you, perhaps it will make you smile). I was disappointed in two ways: one way is that it did not come with pictorial instructions showing optimal positioning. The second way is that even after substantial fiddling, I could not come up with a way in which it both firmly clamped my mouth shut and did not choke me. I suspect this strap would be just fine for someone with a different shaped head. I just think you have to experiment with different options to see what will work for you.
Helps my therapy but is uncomfortable
Written By: Bigdog, CA 9/7/2017
Immediately stopped mouth leak. It's what I needed. The problem I have is with the seam/tab on the back of the chinstrap. The hard plastic tab is exactly the same width as the piece it attaches to. If it's not aligned perfectly, as I tilt my head, it digs into my neck and doesn't feel very good. I've taken to biasing the hard plastic part up so there's a little cushion of the mating tab below. It is also really difficult to pull the tab up to release because the tab connects right up to the edge and there's no easy way to grab it I'd recommend a different attachment design.

This was too tight on my ears and the larger model was too loose and slipped around.
