    Default Snaptite XL Highrise Hose

    Has anyone used the "Snaptite XL Highrise Fire Hose"? If so, have you had any problems or concerns with this lightweight fire hose.

    Default SNT XL hose

    New hose to me.

    According to the web-site, it is 200 psi service hose, rubber covered.

    As a note, NFPA requires 300 psi minimum for attack, so if your a compliant FD, its a no go.

    For a similar hose, look at the Angus Hi Power.


    Of course, if you want lighter hose with better packability, DJ and SJ hoses will do well, but the heat resistance is much lower thn rubber covered.
