    note that I said "can be", not "is". Important distinction right there.

    For me, head down's pretty easy to breathe, it's head up with the chipmunk cheeks that bother me.

    Same. It annoys me because I forget about it since it breathes fine in trim, so the first couple breaths I'm always surprised. It's certainly not an insurmountable breathing position like some would have you believe, but I wouldn't wanna do a couple hours of heads up deco on it like that. It's just tiring after a while.
