 Once you use a polyurethane hose, you'll wonder where they've been all this time! Contractors use them almost exclusively on construction sites for air nailers, etc., because they're very flexible, extremely abrasion resistant, tough and very hard to cut.

I would definitely have to agree, especially now-a-days.  A lot of countries, 
including our own, produce some not so very good stuff, as well as good 

I really just like the Goodyear rubber hoses because they are traditional and 
old looking.  I like old stuff, but antique rubber air hoses probably would not 
be very practical LOL!  I've got some PVC hoses that are probably 15 years old, 
and they still serve faithfully.  Haven't seen a polyurethane hose yet, sounds

if your goal is finding quality stuff, country of origin ain't gonna be the 
deciding factor! Remember, Harbor Freight has ONE goal, and one goal ONLY, 
CHEAP! Sometimes they have good stuff, but more often than not, it's cheap 
stuff, which is fine for tools for occasional use. 

The best air hoses are the polyurethane air hoses. Tough, strong, and a LOT more 
flexible than the rubber and PVC hoses (most are the latter) out there. I bought 
one, it was pricey, but DAMN, it's nice. And Harbor Freight has those too.
