Scott 4.5 or 50 Cold Weather Air Leak
We have recently had an air leak problem in our Scott air pak 50's. During a recent cold period, (Ambient temps -10 or below) we have had numerous air leaks between the high pressure hose and the pressure reducer on the pack frame. So far this is only effecting our units that were purchased in 1996 and 1997. We have no units older than this currently, and the problem has not been found in our newer units.
Any department with similiar problems, ideas, or information as to what may be causing this and/or fix this is requested to reply. Scott Aviations answer was to not use the units in below freezing temperatures...... We are in Northern Minnesota I guess we use them only two months a year then...
Thanks for your input.

They should replace them for you with their "new style" hose. Your manual from Scott should state what temperatures you should use your SCBA in and what to do if a leak should occur.
