 Except polyurethane! Those hoses are VERY flexible down to insanely low temperatures, like, -100F...

The problem with hose that aren't rubber is that they get awfully stiff in
the cold weather. Any type of plastic is notorious for being as stiff as a
board in winter.

countries, including our own, produce some not so very good stuff, as well
as good products.

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 nice.

In fact, 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.

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.
