Try SleepWeaver Elan Cloth Nasal CPAP Mask at home and if you're not completely satisfied, return it for a full refund of the original purchase price. Love it or send it back, it's that simple!

SleepWeaver Elan's soft, light, breathable cloth cushion inflates like a balloon during CPAP & BiPAP therapy pressing gently againts the face to create a leak free seal with no pinching or pressure points. Because SleepWeaver cloth is breathable the mask feels cool and dry to wear and the fabric feels natural on the skin unlike the plastic and silicone of most CPAP mask solutions.

Like all SleepWeaver masks the Elan has no rigid plastic frame so the entire mask is lightweight and free to flex, bend, compress and move with you as you sleep. In addition the Elan comes with a double swivel elbow so tubing can be channeled in any direction -- over the head, down the chest, or to the side.

SleepWeaver Elan reduces facial contact in several key areas... The cushion is smaller overall so no contact is made at the nasal bridge where sleep therapy users often experience sores and chafing; and the low profile headgear reduces strap contact on the face and eliminates forehead and overhead straps entirely. Elan is great for wearing glasses or watching TV because your field of vision is left completely free.

The Elan is Latex and Silicone Free so it's great for allergy sufferers. The mask's exhalation valve is made of a series of small holes so there is no direct stream of air to irritate bed partners and exhalation is very quiet. The soft cloth cushion is durable too, so it's very easy to clean; just pop it in the washing machine with your own mild detergents or wash it by hand if you prefer. And if you ever need a replacement cushion they're sold separately so you can just buy the parts you need.

The SleepWeaver Elan is available in three sizes -- Small, Regular & Large -- to fit a wide range of users. Choose the size you prefer at checkout; or if you're not sure which size you need select the FitPack mask with Small, Regular and Large cushions included so you can try them all to find your best fit.

  • cutting into skin

    The edge of the fabric keeps irritating where my nose meets my upper lip to the point it scraped the skin after only 3 hours and I couldn't wear for 2-3 days for it to heal. Even when I loosen the lower strap it still irritates. Loosen any more and it leaks. Maybe my skin is just to sensitive If I can figure that out it would be just about perfect

  • Finally a mask I can wear!

    What I really like with this mask is that it goes on each side of my face. There is one fabric mask that goes up on my head between my eyes and on top of my head. That mask simply is horrible - wrecks my bangs and gives a whole new meaning to bad hair day. This is NOT that mask, and it's why I bought this mask. There seems to be some air venting out, so it takes a little time to adjust, but my clinical numbers saw a much better reading with this mask than other masks I've tried.

  • THE Answer when you're allergic to Latex

    The Sleepweaver Elan mask is what allows me to use a CPAP at all. I am allergic to latex and the rigid mask made me claustrophic and marked my face. The Sleepweaver Elan is light soft and small, made of material like sportcloth. I take a very large hat size, and have a large nose for a woman, and the Regular fits me just fine. It *is* quite hard to learn to use so that it does not leak The video and leaflet help, but so does patience. The method that works best for me is to lie on my back (I sleep with my head propped up a bit) during the ramp period (10 minutes), supporting the featherweight* connecting tube with a couple of fingers so that the weight of the tube does not distort the not yet fully inflated mask. If you get a good seal to start off the night, you are usually leak free. (*you have to use a short light tube between the mask and the regular tubing). This said, the best way to correct a leak is to slightly and very briefly lift the mask either at the place of the leak, or opposite it. this allows you to slightly reposition the mask and get a better seal. The mask pressure compensates for the leak temporarily, which also helps. I am sensitive to the rhythym and pressure of the CPAP even with this mask. The pressure across my face resonates down my back and can make my low back ache. When this happens and I start to toss and turn (this mask is leaks if you toss and turn) I get up for a couple of minutes and take an over the counter muscle relaxant if I need to. Regular chiropractic care is also helpful. The back issues would happen for me regardless; they are not mask related. Just to note that you do learn how to turn over without really waking up, supporting the tube and not brushing your head against the pillow (which tends to shift the harness and cause a leak). If you have sleep apnea and make the commitment to use a CPAP and cannot use a hard mask, the Elan is the mask for you. Stick with it and sleep becomes a beautiful thing again.

  • Who was this designed for?

    Who on earth was this designed for? Worst fitting mask I've EVER tried -- and I normally use a sleepweaver advance, so it's not as though I'm unfamiliar with the technology! Seriously, I bought all three nose pillow sizes -- regular, extra large, and "THAT'S a nose!??" small. With the advance you stick it on your face, you stick your nose in the hole, and away you go. With the elan... first off even with the huge cushion on it the nose hole is way too small. Can't even get the tip of my nose through it, let alone the whole thing like the advance. Secondly, since I can't get my nose through it, it feels like it's trying to inflate backwards towards my face, in an attempt to shove air up through my nose. I guess that's really the point, but it makes for an impossibly bad fit, and I just don't see how this was ever supposed to work, nor for whom. (I wear a normal size advance mask, so it's not as though I have some huge honker with a big bulbous end!) Just mystified how this fits anyone at all.

  • Not for small faces

    I LOVE Sleepweaver soft cloth nasal mask, but got this to try so I would have even fewer straps on my head. It did not work for me at all. It felt too big on me as I turned, it leaked, and I ended up tossing it on the floor in the middle of the night. A friend who tried the same mask felt like the hard plastic tubing in the front was pressing too hard on the end of your nose. Some might like it, but I'm going back to the one I know works for me.

    I ahve used ths mask for 5 months now and I love it. It is the most comfortable mask I ahve ever used and I hvae been using a CPAP for 23 years. I would suggest getting getting a larger size than you think. The normal mask I used was a medium/small so I purchased a medium/regular size mask. My wife had to do some trimming on it because it covered about 1/2 of my nostrils. I will buy this mask again, but I will get the large size.

  • Can not sleep worth a darn without it

    After giving up on my Bi-pap from unconfrotable and terrible nights of sleep, I purchased the kit with all 3, the Regular fits perfect and this mask is GREAT, I will not even try to sleep without, I have fallen asleep without it on and have woken up and put it on during the middle of the night and gone right back to sleep, my rubber mask I could never do that.. After about 3 to 4 months do have to replace the mask as it seems to stretch and then you will notice it starting to leak are around your upper lip, but that is a small price for its comfort....Love this product and just order another mask with the head gear and 3 more of just the mask....

  • Soft Mask Review - No Nonsense Review

  • Functional, But Poor Construction

    I purchased the Sleepweaver Elan Softcloth Nasal CPAP mask as a replacement for the Wisp fabric and silicon headgear. Both types of Wisp headgear failed (tore on one side) in a matter of months. Although the material/construction was unsatisfactory, the seal was good up until failure, and I liked the light weight. I found the Elan cloth mask while searching for a replacement for the Wisp headgear. I thought a cloth mask would be a better option than plastic/silicon. Now I'm not so sure. The Elan mask is made of very thin synthetic cloth; the headgear is made of neoprene and should last a long time. The facemask, however, seems likely to tear where the straps from the headgear attach. At that location there are four slits in the material to accommodate the straps, with no stitching to reinforce that fabric. As a result, I am not confident the mask will take a lot of use. I recommend people looking for a lightweight mask keep searching for an alternative made of better/stronger materials.

    It's not fun wearing any kind of gear on my face when I sleep, but I can't imagine a better design than this. The fabric is soft, lightweight and unobtrusive, yet somehow totally effective at holding and directing airflow. The new straps, positioned to hold the mask on a horizontal axis is exactly what I was hoping for. The company clearly integrated information and experiences from customers in order to make this wonderful improvement. Thank you for making this mask!

  • Leaks about half of the time

    With a good seal, it's a great mask, but it's very hard to get a consistent result. Once I can get a seal with this mask, I have to avoid shifting positions or moving me head in any direction; otherwise the whooshing air leaks start up.

  • Noisy, hard to seal

    As with a lot of mask, I wanted to try least it's something different. The reason I wanted to try this, is that my nose is get very sore from my nose mask. This is noisy, as the air escapes through the fabric. I bought the package so I could try different sizes mask. I had a very hard time trying to adapt to it. It leaks easy, hard to make a good seal, and of course, the noise. I'm clean shaven, so that did not effect any thing.

I was able to adjust it so can just slip My head in and out, (Best part is you do not have to put it on so tight you have marks on face and nose hurts all day, and no hard plastic jammed into your face if roll over ...(((((I did try the Mirage FX for sleep test, Felt so good but when got up nose area and face hurt all day,,,have to keep it om so tight to work,,, )))))

    This product promised so much. And I confess the first night of use, it was comfortable. Then the straps began pulling the fabric and the fabric started digging into my face at the stress points. I asked customer service about it. The e-mail was that I had it on too tight and I should try a Regular size rather than a Large size. But my nose is too big and I could never get a proper seal. All in all a waste of effort.

  • This is the one!

    I have used many nasal masks (plastic w/silicone gel) in the past. ALL of them either leaked (if not tight enough), or created painful pressure on my upper lip (if pulled tight to seal). This fabric mask is WONDERFUL. It inflates to fit snuggly, but does NOT hurt or create too much pressure or cause my lip to get sore from wearing. I even have a mustache, which it seals well. I bought one to "try", and have now bought another to have along when I travel. Plus, it's small and lightweight, and the headgear is mininmal. I do not normally do product reviews, but this mask is the best I've used. Highly recommend!

  • Not for me

    In an attempt to find a mask that wouldn't make me feel like I was being attacked be a face hugger alien, and since the pillows tend to make my nose sore, I chose the Sleepweaver Elan Soft Cloth Mask. Unfortunately, though I purchased the starter kit that comes with all three sizes, I wasn't able to get any of them to work for me. The small was way too small, the large covered both my nose and my mouth and I was never able to get the medium to seal properly. It leaked all across the top no matter what I tried. I also found the edges to be quite sharp and there was a seam at the bottom, under my nose that was particularly irritating. I guess this would be ok for some folks, just not for me.

  • If it sounds too good to be true...

    The write up about this mask sounded so good and promising. However when I got it in the mail it was very difficult to get adjusted. And when you finally got it adjusted you had to release the velcro strap in order to take it off. Meaning you had to adjust it again the next time you had to put it on or if you got up in the middle of the night for anything. But more annoying was the fact the mask inflates and deflates as you breath. I found this to cause the mask to leak. I would not recommend this mask to anyone.

    The new sleep weaver elan is not an improvement upon the sleepweaver advance mask and I'm sorry I made the change. The part that attaches to the tubing is hard plastic, very uncomfortable and includes several small pieces that are difficult (almost impossible) to assemble. I have been very satisfied with the sleep weaver advance mask which I've used for over 3 years. Upgrading this item didn't improve it.

  • Elan Soft Mask

    It works well and is more comfortable than a gel/frame mask as long as you sleep on your back. The description from your website led me to believe it was better for side sleepers, but the cloth billows out on either side of your nose so that every time I awakened on my side the cloth was smashed in and leaking badly. Also can only withstand a very small pull on the supply hose or it will have a blow out around your lip. This was after being assured by customer service it would " work fine with my existing CPAP hose." So if you sleep REALLY STILL, on your back it works and feels great. I tried using it for several nights and went back to my gel mask. Couldn't deal with the blow-out's and knowing the air wasn't going where it should. 2 Stars-Poor is my rating for now. If I make friends with it later, I'll let you know.

  • I will return it

    I was looking forward to a better nasal CPAP mask. This one seemed light and could be comfortable because it floats on a bed of air. However it was not as comfortable as my old Swift FX. I tried many positions during the night (back, right side, left side) to try to get it to not leak or make noise, but was not able to get an extended period of sleep. When I woke up I was tired the rest of the day. It seems that the material is so flimsy that it just folds over on itself, causing leaks. So glad I have the satisfaction guarantee.

  • Superior to rigid mask

    This mask was a shot in the dark after reaching my boiling point with morning strap lines and forehead depressions. The fit is somewhat loose and subject to leaks if not adjusted/situated just right but considerably more comfortable. Did it fix the strap line issues? ...not exactly but they are shallower and less likely to still be noticeable by the time I am out the door. I have not used it long enough to see if it ages gracefully but it appears to be durable and capable of a long service life. Overall, a far better product than my old mask but not the dream product I was hoping to have.

    I am a new CPAP mask user, having recently been diagnosed with sleep apnea. This is the 4th mask I have tried in the past month. Two were the traditional nasal masks, and both of them left my nose red and wounded. I also tried a nasal pillow mask, hoping it would work for me, as It would not further damage my nose. Unfortunately, I could not tolerate it as the pressure on my nose was too much, and I had to take it off after only one hour of use. I read the reviews on the Sleepweaver Elan mask and decided to try it. After 2 weeks of use, I find it is the best solution for me. It does not leave marks on my nose, and I have been able to have it form a good seal, without leakage. You must use it with the hose coming from over your head, not from underneath, as the weight of the hose pulls the mask down and makes it difficult to avoid leaks. I sleep with my back elevated and have the hose come down from behind my pillow and have no problem in avoiding leaks that way. If there are leaks after putting the mask on, I just pull the lower straps down and get a seal. Do not pull the straps tight, like you do on the traditional nasal masks, as that causes leaks with this one. I was doubtful about using a mask until I found this one, but This is the answer for me. I recommend it highly!

  • SleepWeaver elan Soft Cloth Nasal CPAP Mask

    A lot different than the mask I was used to. Took a week or so to get used to this type, but so far so good... very very comfortable.

  • Sizes seem small?

    I really like the Elan mask. It comes with a "normal" and "large" size mask, but while I use a "small" in the ComfortGel series, the "large" in the Elan seems a bit too small... So, if you have a larger nose, this might be problematic. Mask takes a little practice to achieve good seal. I suspect a larger mask might work better for me. Once a good seal is found, the mask is great. One thing is that the placement of your hose is more important than with a hard mask. I found that trapping part of the hose under my shoulder helped prevent the mask connection from moving and that prevents leaks. Overall, I like the mask and would give it five stars except for the possible size issue. Dave

  • Living happily ever after with Elan

    After being diagnosed with severe sleep apnea, I took the CPAP headgear suggested by the supplier I choose. Full face mask. Rigid. Subject to airleaks. Uncomfortable. When I expressed dismay I was led to nasal pillows. Better, but had issues with soreness. Then I found the original Sleepweaver. Best to date, though the headstraps over my nose were a little distracting. Voila, Elan appeared in my life. I am in love. I expect this will be improved somehow but I love it as is. Thanks!

  • Circadence Elan mask

    The mask is comfortable however, it moves on my face through out the night. Which generally wakes me up. So I can't give this a very high rating. I love the original Sleep Weaver mask!

  • Probably good for CPAP

    Very comfortable and works great when I go to sleep. However on the bipap when the pressure increases after I go to sleep, it begins to squeel on the corners and awakens me. Upon adjustment, I'm able to go to sleep until the bipap pressure increases, then I have to repeat this over and over. On the CPAP without pressure increases, I think it would work.

  • Paradigm Shift

    Once the straps are adjusted properly, the mask sits lightly on the face. After trying comfort gel, nasal pillows, nasal prongs, canules, this version has been the best for me.

  • Side sleeper

    Works great for side sleeping, no more "mask marks" on my morning face.Just started using it. Comfortable,hardly no leakage. Will be my mask of choice for now. Only problem is that I flip alot and the hose running on top my head doesn't swivel easily and I get a lot of "bad hair "days as a result.

    I had some leak problems at first, but I put a piece of tissue on my nose before putting the mask on and the leaks are gone. No problems now and much better than the first model!

  • elan soft cloth too good to be true

    If this mask did not leak along the nose blowing cold air in your eye al night it would be great, as it is I cannot continie to use and the adjustments of the headgear makes no difference. Great idea just not yet perfected.

  • Best Mask Ever!

    I have had a CPAP machine for 7-8 years. I haven't used a CPAP for 7-8 years, until now. I got tired of trying to find a mask that wouldn't leak if my head made just the slightest movement. On a whim I started looking at masks again and came across SleepWeaver

  • Product needs more work

    Great idea for comfort due to the soft material, but the design needs to be re-worked because the mask keeps coming loose from the tubing connection. The design of the connection allows you to screw it onto the mask, but the material just slides out of the connector when you move your head. Comfort is great, but not worth the frustration if you have to put the mask back together a dozen time a night! I'm going to keep looking for a mask that combines comfort with good design and reliability.

  • SleepWeaver Elan Comfortable

    I tried the SleepWeaver Advanced. When I heard about the Elan, I decided to get it because of the better hose management. The mask is wonderful as far as being light, extremely comfortable. It is real finicky to fit; I get some air leakage into my eye if I roll around at night. I think part of it is because the strap that secures the hose isn't stiff enough, and I wish there was some thicker material near the seam to better fill in the crack between the bridge of my nose nearer the eye. Because the mask is so comfortable, I'm still trying different suggestions to improve the fit. Sleepweaver says to keep the straps very loose and pull down on the mask with the machine running. That's helped, but its not perfect.

  • Great New Concept for CPAP Users!

    I love this new mask! Very comfortable & easy to fit using straps, only drawback is headgear. If headgear could be reduced, say to one strap, would be perfect.

  • SleepWeaver Elan

    I have had two cloth SleepWeaver masks in the past. They worked reasonably well, but I had some complaints about minor air leakage and durability. The new Elan works better than the previous model and I do not have any leakage issues. It appears to be a significant improvement in the design, especially for someone who sleeps on their side. My only complaint so far is that the cloth part of the mask will disconnect from the tubing if pulled on while shifting around. This has happened twice in 4 nights of using it. It is relatively easy to put it back together, but is a definite annoyance to do while half asleep in the wee hours of the morning. This last time, I tried screwing the mechanism down tighter and hopefully, it will solve the problem. I haven't slept again with it since. I'm suspicious that what might be needed is to modify the design to have a slightly larger diameter to the washer and plate to give it more surface area for gripping the cloth.

  • Learn to use it and you'll never go back to a conventional mask

    At first, I was worried I'd made a poor choice. It really didn't seem to fit my face! But as I fiddled with it for the first few nights I slowly understood the nuances of this wonderful mask, and I love it! On me, it sits right on the tip of my nose on top; and covers most of my upper lip. It helps if I momentarily press the mask to the sides of my nose and to my cheeks next to my nose after the mask is inflated. Also, it fits soooooo much better when I'm laying down than when I'm sitting up so I adjust it as I lay on my pillow. Love this mask! Light as a feather, too!

  • Elan soft cloth nasal mask

    When I received my mask I tried it that nite but kept getting an air leak toward my eyes, I adjusted the straps but to no avail so I switch back to my old mask. I was about to return it but next nite I decided to switch to the larger one and now it seal great and very comfortable. I do have a bit of an issue with the way the tubing is held with that soft strap. I believe if it was a bit more stiff it would work better in holding the tube in it's proper place. I very happy with it because the old mask would fit on my nostrils and it would irritated them. This one eliminates that problem. I would highly recommend it.

    I really wanted this thing to work. I slipped it up and down just like the video requested and I just couldn't get it to work. I'm not sure what an acceptable amount of leakage should be. Maybe if I did this might have worked out a little better.

  • SleepWeaver

    We are glad a DVD came to demonstrate how to use mask. To sleep without nose buds or any other plastic nose piece is wonderful. This soft material is very comfortable. Both my husband and I have had trouble getting the tabs to fit properly. Seems there needs to be another couple of adjustment options for users. Once adjusted, if I didn't move in bed, there were no air leaks and I slept well. Hubby is still trying to find proper adjustment for his.

  • Best Mask for Eye Glass Wearers and more!

    I've been using the Comfort Gel for the past 5 years and as an eye glass wearer, it always bothered me about taking the mask on and off each time. Parts would eventually break, and there was no way I could wear my eyeglasses at the same time, a problem when I have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Then I discovered the SleepWeaver elan. I couldn't believe how much of a difference it made in my sleep. I could sleep on my side or on my back and wear my glasses. At times I had to check to see if I was still wearing it. My first night with it, I wasn't sure it was working so I would reach up and feel it inflated like a balloon. Upon opening the box, the mask is so small and lightweight, it seems to be way overpriced for what you get until you experience your first night with it! I love this product!

  • Easier on the hairdo!

    I've been using the original sleepweaver for awhile, and loved the soft cloth feel, but hated the strap over my forehead and the smashing down of my front hair every night. This new mask takes care of that problem. It does hang off the front of your face a bit heavier and more awkward, but still worth it.

    I've been using the sleepweaver for a few years, this new one is much better than the original design. I have no air leakage, it's more comfortable than the first generation mask. The new design of headgear is so much better than either of the two previous models that stretched out too soon.

    The most comfortable mask I've tried, but a little harder than my other masks to remove and replace properly after a nightly trip to the loo. The lower tightening hook & loop should have been white (rather than the top) as white is easier to see in a darkened room and could have a grip tab to ease loosening and tightening.
