All these hoses are Nitrox Ready.

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. 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.

    Diving for 17 years now and never had a problem with the rubber hoses, and these are good ones, it's hard to switch when I trust the old hoses.

    Good for long hose diving

    It seems it's made out of very good materials kind of thick but great if you're using it in cold water because of the thermal value. I use it in the Quarry for a long hose octo Reg hose in case I need a little more length in and out of air situation with a dive buddy

Tek Tip Warning Image WARNING

Keep in mind that all SCUBA hoses, both rubber or polyester, will fail sooner or later either due to age, storage conditions or handling. Scuba hoses, regardless of brand and materials, require some minimal care. Do not allow hoses to receive prolonged exposure sunlight, as the heat and UV from strong sunlight will significantly shorten the life of the hose. Do not attempt to flush the inside of the hose with any form of solvent or other chemical, new hoses are factory clean and if you have any reason to think they are no longer clean then the hose should be replaced. Prior to every dive trip you should always pressurize and inspect your hoses for mechanical damage, corroded fittings, bulges and leaks. Dive Gear Express suggests replacing all SCUBA hoses every five years or 500 dives, whichever comes first.

Choosing the Best Regulator Hose Length

The most common hose length found on the primary SCUBA regulator is about {28 to 30 in | 71 to 76 cm}. For many divers, this hose is too long and will cause the hose to "bow out," and create unnecessary drag and tug on the mouth. This makes for an uncomfortable dive, particularly in current. Some divers and even manufacturers attempt to improve the situation by making the hose even longer and perhaps adding a 360° swivel - which usually makes the problem even worse. Many of our our experienced divers choose the slightly shorter length of a {26 in | 66 cm} flex hose, feeling it is more comfortable with less drag and pull.

Increasingly we see our experienced single tank divers using a {40 in | 1 m} hose routed under their arm with the primary regulator on 90° swivel and use a shorter {22 in | 56 cm} hose for the backup regulator. The backup regulator is hung on a necklace directly below the chin. The { 40 in | 1 m } hose is also the common choice for the alternate regulator used on traditional sport diving "octopus" configurations. It is the most popular length for technical diving stage and deco regulators as well.

Many advanced divers and instructors believe the common hose lengths are too short in out-of-air situations and now use a much longer hose, often { 60 in | 1.5 m } for those who dive open water exclusively. Technical divers have adopted a length of { 84 in | 2.1 m } for overhead environments.
