Northern Industrial Air Hose - 3/8in. x 100ft., Green, Urethane
Not a very good hose
I bought this hose a couple of years ago, and have been very disappionted. The quick coupler leaked and needed replacing, the swivel end leaks and is a bad finger pincher, the hose is not very flexible (at any temperature), kinks easily and is so tightly "sprung" it coils and knots itself before you can get any work out of it. It is worth paying extra for a good quality hose!

Product flexibility is comparable to rubber hoses.
Product weight is very nice. Much lighter than rubber or PVC.
Swivel end is nice.
Product is very similar to reenforced water lines used for appliances or toilet fixtures.
Unfortunately it is not an acceptable alternative to Flexzilla, I have already purchased Flexzilla, and will be giving this one away.

Good air hose
Although the swivel did leak a little air occasionally, I would still recommend this hose over standard rubber air hoses. It is lighter and more flexible. In my opioion, it would have been better without the swivel.

I got this air hose for christmass about 5 years ago and when i got it the flex end was cracked and would leak air so i just cut that end off and put a new one on and it works great even in the cold michigan winters.

Way better than I expected
This hose exceeded what I expected. It really is a pleasure to have such a light and flexible hose. I had a few tangle issues but I would have had just as many with a rubber hose too.
I used the hose to do a tile removal job with an air hammer, throughout a home and it performed very well. The swilvel was an added bonus and made working in tight spots a little easier.
You will not be disappointed.

Northern Industrial airhose 3/8in.x100ft, green, u
I live in northern Wisconsin, and work sometimes in my unheated garage. I needed an airhose which could stay flexible in very cold temperatures. This product delivered what it promised and works 100 percent better than my older conventional airhose. Now stored on a self winding take-up reel, my hoses are out of the way, remain flexible and easy to use when needed.

Has worked good for me. Its light and easy to work with. Happy with it so far and that has been about a year.

This is the most durable hose we have ever used. I have tested a lot of hose, this holds up the best. We use about 600ft. a year.

Good strong hose
This hose has nice 1/4"NPT swivel fittings on both ends, and is extremely light for its length. It does tend to stay coiled but if you put it on a reel it will work very nicely. Highly recommended as an alternative to rubber and much better than PVC hose!

I have paid much more for the same hose, the 360* swivel end is great.
