Quality air hose

I'm looking to buy some 3/8 50ft air hose for my garage. Ive been buying hose from Harbor freight and after a while it just starts getting holes in random spots and leaks air and I end up throwing it away. Would like something thats nice and flexible so I can easily pull it around car while painting, etc.

x2 I hate those hard plastic air hoses..

rubber is 2X the cost but its worth it..
I ran across some black Goodyear rubber hose, only thing it is heavier, but much more flexible..
#228C on the hose, cant even find it in a search..

I've been running tractor supply's generic flexzilla hose for a few years now. It's blue instead of green like true flexzilla, but so far it's held up and it's flexible.

I just finished building a 12 x 24 storage shed in Alaska, some of my days were below zero. As mentioned above, plastic hose is horrible, extreme cold makes it 10x worse.

An inexpensive fix for me was this hose from HD, $43.00, no kinks, no problems with wear some experienced in the reviews.

I have to agree about the Goodyear black hoses. I have one that is over 40 years old that shows no cracks and has never been shortened from a bend failure at the fittings. I have a couple other Goodyear's that are not as old that are good shape. I'll use my low buck HF hoses if a long reach is needed out in the yard or driveway, but they usually stay coiled on a hook.

Have you tried using a Rubber/ Nylon hose? I find them reliable. Good life cycle.
