Double braided polyester hoses are a considerable improvement over rubber hoses because the double braided hose is more flexible and stronger. These premium quality double braided hoses are Nitrox Ready and attractively priced compared to rubber hoses.

These high pressure double braided hoses have an outer polyester braided cover that is laid over a woven Kevlar layer. (Although the Kevlar makes them not as flexible as our low pressure double braided hoses, they are still more flexible than ordinary rubber HP hoses.) This hose has a typical outside diameter that works better with hose boots and consoles. Our most popular HP hose lengths are approximately {24 in | 61 cm} long for doubles, {26 in | 66 cm} long for singles, and {32 in | 81 cm} long for consoles. The typical HP hose is a 7/16-inch male at the end that screws into the first stage HP port, and a 7/16-inch female at the end that screws on to the SPG.

Spool

Note that all high pressure hoses use an 'air spool' with two tiny o-rings to mate the swivel connector on the hose to the fitting on the gauge. The air spool is not included with the hose (see the price list below to order) but we recommend replacing the air spool when replacing the hose. The standard spool has the flange in the center as pictured at right but a few SPGs, typically the plastic body ones, may only accept a spool without a shoulder in which case you will have to reuse the air spool from the SPG.

Our most popular BC inflator hose length is approximately {22 in | 56 cm} long. The typical low-pressure BC inflator hose is a 3/8-inch male at the end that screws into the first stage LP port, and at the other end is the Quick Disconnect BC female slide-lock Schrader valve fitting that accepts the standard BC inflator male QD post.

You can not use the standard BC inflator QD hose Schrader fitting to supply a BC integrated alternate air source, as the device would not receive enough gas due to the flow restriction of a standard Schrader fitting. However, it is possible to adapt an LP Regulator hose to a BC integrated alternate air source quick disconnect fitting but to avoid confusion we list the adapters separately on our BC Integrated Backup Second Stages page.

Our most popular regulator hose lengths are approximately {22 in | 56 cm} for backup regulators, {26 in | 66 cm} long for sport regulators, {40 in | 102 cm} for octo/stage/deco regulators, and {7 ft | 2.1 m} for technical regulators. We offer the {40 in | 101.6 cm } length commonly used for stage/deco and octo hoses in your choice of three colors: black, green, and yellow. The typical low pressure regulator hose is a 3/8-inch male at the end that screws into the first stage LP port, and at the other end you'll find a 9/16-inch female that screws onto the second stage regulator body.

Are Double-Braided Flex Hoses Better Than Rubber?

YES, after generations of rubber as the status quo in scuba hoses, technology has finally been used to improve this important product used by every diver. Every aspect of double-braided polyester hoses out perform rubber hoses. External double-braiding better resists the snags and abrasions encountered in diving. Polyester is much more flexible, a third lighter, more UV & kink resistant and enormously stronger. In our experience double-braided polyester hoses are more reliable than rubber but keep in mind that all SCUBA hoses, both rubber or polyester, will fail sooner or later either due to age, storage conditions or handling. Prior to every dive trip you should always pressurize and inspect your hoses for mechanical damage, corroded fittings, bulges and leaks. We suggest replacing all SCUBA hoses every five years or 500 dives, whichever comes first.

Most high-pressure hoses are 7/16-inch male and most first stage high-pressure ports are 7/16-inch female, including all the brands we carry. A few brands of first stages use high-pressure ports that are 3/8-inch female, notably very old models from the early days of diving. We offer 3/8-inch to 7/16-inch adapters.

Most low-pressure hoses are 3/8-inch male and most first stage low-pressure ports are 3/8-inch female, including all the brands we carry. A few brands of first stages have a special low-pressure port that is 1/2-inch female, notably some Apex and older Aqualung models. We offer 1/2-inch to 3/8-inch adapters.
