The advantage to this Goodyear hose is that it is made out of industrial grade rubber instead of vinyl. What that means is that when you are using it instead of being stiff like vinyl it remains soft and flexible, so it lays flat on the floor. This is especially a problem in colder temperatures. It's great for coiling as well, it doesn't fight you.
The real frustration of using a vinyl hose is that it can stand up while moving across the floor, high enough to snag on things, or even pull something onto the floor. The hose is in a coil, then instead of simply uncoiling, the vinyl has a memory and wants to look more like hoops moving over the floor.
This hose comes in 3/8" which is the most popular size. The 1/4" hoses restrict air flow, which is especially important over a 50 foot run.
All in all highly recommended. The advantages are worth it even if it was twice the price.

Having used just about every type of air hose on the market, I can say the yellow Goodyear hose is second to none. It is very durable and stands up to the wear and tear of jobsite use. The coupler ends maintain excellent wear and far outlast other less durable hoses.

A cheap airhose (made from PVC, usually) is a pain. They stay coiled when you uncoil them, and stay straight when you coil them. A high quality rubber hose makes a huge difference. It sounds trivial, but it really makes managing hoses easier. When I'm in the shop, or out on a job I want to be able to run the hose out quickly, and coil it neatly when I'm done. A high quality rubber hose like this one makes it easy.

My Goodyear hoses have been in service for a long time and are tough enough to last for many more years.

I also appriaciate the fact that it's made in the USA.

One extra tip - lay out your hose, then connect it to the tank. If you connect it to the tank when it's coiled, it'll fill with air and be harder to uncoil.

I bought this air hose under the impression it was a genuine goodyear air hose. It's not; it's a knockoff. The hose may or may not work fine, but it's not a goodyear hose. This is a genuine goodyear air hose. This was confirmed by the manufacturer of the real hoses; see hobbler's 1 star review and check the comments.

I didn't suspect much until I got the hose and noticed a couple of things. Though it seems to be hit or miss, the fittings on mine were mis-threaded as well. I tried to attach this hose to a hose reel and the fitting was very difficult to thread and only went on a few turns before not being able to go any further, even with a wrench. Also, the hose itself did NOT have the Mit diamond trademark signifying a genuine goodyear hose, and the goodyear markings that are there were put on sloppily and were starting to rub off.

Like I said, the hose may or may not work fine; I couldn't get mine threaded to even try it so 1 star. Others seem happy with it, and that's great, but I don't like to be duped. Don't sell me a harbor freight hose at goodyear prices. The genuine goodyear hose is only eight bucks more so I bought one of those and this one is en router back to amazon for a refund.

Amazon needs to get on the ball with these counterfeit items. I had a similar experience with a belkin USB cable, where it was supposed to be belkin, yet the cable was absolute garbage, extremely generic and anorexicly thin.

I have had this hose for 5 years now. I use it with a Porter-Cable finish nailer and for misc tasks like inflating car tires or using a air blowing nozzle. It is always flexible, even when the garage gets cold. It is a little scuffed up, but still works great and has not lost any of its flexibility. It is always easy to coil. Another advantage, this is cheaper than a long heavy duty extension cord for the compressor. It is also a lot easier to run a long hose than to keep moving the compressor around the house as I do projects. A longer hose keeps the compressor further away from you to keep the noise level down.

I recently puchased one of these 50' hoses for my new DeWalt twin tank air compressor. This is by far the best 50' hose on the market today without question. It remains totally flexible in cold temperatures unlike those vinyl coiled hoses on the market. It also lays flat when in use and does not coil up in places. You don't have to worry about tripping over this hose. The couplings at each end of the hose are very high quality and the yellow color is very noticeable to keep others from snagging the hose and tripping on it. The 50' lenght is perfect to allow you to move about freely and not relocate your compressor often. This is a great product and the price is right. Get one of these. You will be glad you did.

After researching several air hoses and reading a number of positive reviews about this one, I ordered 2 of these in addition to the one 25-footer that came with my Porter-Cable combo kit. The hose is of high quality and because it is rubber, is much easier to work with than standard air hoses. The 50-foot length is perfect for most jobs around the house, and lays flat even in colder weather. It comes ready for quick-connect fittings to screw right on, so don't forget those. I would suggest the Porter-Cable PAK253 17-piece accessory kit, which has 2 sets of quick connects, in addition to many other useful air fittings.

All in all, a great value. And at this price, it pays to order two and get the free shipping, which took less than a week. A definite no-brainer for me!!!

I RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS HOSE AND I MUST SAY THAT IS BY FAR THE BEST I'VE EVER USED! I LIKE THE WAY IT LAYS FLAT WHEN IN USE AND DOESN'T COIL UP ON THE FLOOR WHICH WILL CAUSE A PERSON TO TRIP OVER IT. I'VE JUST PLACED AN ORDER FOR ANOTHER ROLL OF THIS AIR HOSE. GOTTA TRY IT TO REALLY APPRECIATE ITS QUALITY!!

These goodyear hoses are terrific. I would recommend them to anybody interested in purchasing air hoses. They are extremely flexible, durable and perform better then plastic hoses. It's definately worth the investment. I bought two!

I have one of these and an Orange Pliovic hose made by Goodyear. I prefer this yellow one because it does not stay coiled and will lay flat on the floor of my shop. I have stumbled on a loop of the orange hose on occassion. They are both excellent, durable hoses; this yellow rubber one just works better when you get it unrolled. It is worth the extra bucks!
