Unlike rubber air hoses, Ridgid’s Lay Flat Air Hose is lightweight and non-marring. Unlike polyurethane hoses, it doesn’t form curly tangles, so you won’t feel like you’re wrestling with a giant Slinky. To avoid kinks, it has swivel fittings on both ends. But as usual, superiority carries a high price tag: A 50-ft. Lay Flat Air Hose costs about $45 at The Home Depot.
