Low Pressure air bags - good lift, not particularly durable but not known much problem with them - quite solid, stable annd reliable.
High Pressure airbags - rugged and hard wearing. Not particularly outstanding height gain and in my opinion less stable than the low pressures.
The most impressive airbags I have used are the ZUMRO NT airbags.
Not sure whether these are available in the US.
They operate at 10bar ( HI-Pressure) but can be interconnected. i.e. they screw together! They have a point load plate and are extremely versatile and solid. Deflated they are extremely thin and can be built up to a height beyond that of low pressure airbags....
Think they can be checked out at
Again - not sure whether you are already aware of the product over there - definitely worth a look!

Check out the Hurst medium (15 psi) and the high pressure bags (118 psi) both bags can be controlled from the same controller simultaneously, and the have a wide variety of bags available.

We're using the ResQTek (Zumro) NT bags. Very impressive. We need 1.5 inches to get them fully inserted rather than 1 inch with the square bags, but the lift and power are incredible. The ability to secure/stack them is also beneficial for higher lifts.
