XT-Tech Regulator Hose 100cm is a modern hybrid between a braided hose and a rubber hose. Lighter than a traditional rubber hose but not as buoyant as a braided hose the XT-Tech don't float so will route better and stay where you want them. An external coating protects the braiding and makes the hose smooth outside so it doesn't rub against your skin.
If you're looking to replace a worn hose or configure your regs to exactly how you want them the XT Tech is a great range to look at. Made for both technical and recreational divers who want a lightweight hose that doesn't float, the internal Polyether based PU core transfers gas and is protected by a Kevlar reinforced braid and a smooth PU outer layer.
1.0m is a good length for an octo hose, hence the yellow colour, so you have enough slack to donate to a diver face-to-face but not too much slack that the hose becomes a hazard.
100cm is also a good length for a drysuit hose from a single cylinder. All you need is a connector to turn this into a QD LPI Hose.
Longer hoses are usually prefered for an alternate hose so you can donate to a diver and have some space to move. For a single cylinder primary donate most divers use a 150cm hose for twins on a similar DIR setup 210cm is prefered.
