Here we review the BreatheWear Halo Chin Strap, which is definitely not your average or cheap snoring or sleep apnea chin strap. It is priced clearly higher than many others, maybe even 5 times higher than the cheapest models sold on the market, but it surely tries to justify this level by offering features which are important for people suffering from snoring or sleep apnea or those who are wearing CPAP masks.
So let’s begin by looking at exactly that – what it has to offer that other snoring chin strap products do not. For this I constructed the below simple table:
The BreatheWear Halo Chin Strap price versus features table
What you get in return which is not common in other snoring chin straps or other sleep apnea / CPAP accessories
At the time of writing this review the price is roughly $28 on Amazon or a little less $24 on CPAP supply USA. I consider this a negative factor because it is much higher than other offers, but perhaps well justified.
First to mention is the high quality of this chin strap. This is especially important is people have to wear it a lot and therefore the quality is critical to provide more comfort and less skin issues.
Next, as you may have seen in my other reviews there are sometimes problems with size, i.e. people unable to fit the cheaper snoring chin straps to all head sizes. Here the manufacturer claims the ability to fit from extra small to extra large sizes.
Finally, the part where I actually find to be maybe the most important is that the fabric is breathable and the reason I think this is extremely important is because it is much healthier for the skin and its ability to breathe and perspire properly, which should also decrease rash type of problems which could occur when using some other snoring solutions.
Buyer comments on the BreatheWear Halo Chin Strap
REVIEW BreatheWear Halo Chin Strap
Firstly I did not find any reviews on this product on Amazon, which I consider to be a negative sign, but perhaps simply the marketing of it was not done well, so people are not aware of it or for whatever reason chose not to give their feedback. Still, I found 4 comments (all 5 stars) on the CPAP supply USA website from buyers and I extract their key points here:
… comfortable…Works well with my mask.
… this one by far is the most comfortable… stays in place…
… keep my mouth shut… doesn’t slip off my head…
… keeps the mouth closed…
Final results on the review of this snoring chin strap
Unfortunately there were very little reviews from the buyers of this sleep apnea and snoring chin strap solution and there were also practically no discussions on the forums, so if anybody from BreatheWear is reading this – you guys need to do a better marketing / advertising job to bring information to people and convince them to write you some testimonials and reviews. Other than that let’s look at the factors:
Objectively analysing this snoring chin strap:
Negatives: as mentioned, I think the high price (versus other chin straps) and the lack of positive feedback are negative factors for this sleep apnea and snoring chin strap solution. However, for someone suffering from these sleep disorders it could be worth to invest the $25ish amount, which is actually still a negligible amount when compared to other snoring solutions or sleep apnea / CPAP solutions.
Positives: we have few very positive buyer feedbacks, the fact that the materials from which the BreatheWear Halo Chin Strap is made are breathable and of high quality, the ability to cater to heads of various sizes properly (not just promising and not delivering like some other snoring chin straps) – so 4 very strong positives.
With 2 not extremely powerful negatives and 4 solid positives I do think this is a very good product and I would recommend people to try it (and leave feedback for others when you do).
