Hi all

If you own a KISS then I guess i'm asking you for some advice.

The DSV hose is about 26" long or you can get it with a 17" i think
now when i look at the jetsam KISS breather picture the STD hose looks veryyyy long i've asked kim this & she said the STD hose is fine but it still looks too bloody long, how do you guys find it, do you wish it was shorter

Thank for your advice

How about getting the long one and buying some re-usable hose ends so you can shorten it if you need to later?

It kinda depends which port on the manifold you route it from. I changed mine to standard length reg hose (it comes with an occy hose). Theres a pic on my profile if you want to see...

Doh. Just re-read that... do you mean the LP feed to the DSV (which is what I thought), or the breathing loop?

If you mean the loop, gordon now has some shorter loop hoses...

Aha. this seems to vary a bit from person to person. I did find mine a tad long and floaty, so I changed them for shorter and found those too restrictive. The final solution was to use velcro to secure the breathing to the harness at the shoulders. Now its fine (for me anyway).

If I were buying now, I'd probably go for the same solution.
