packaging is the drawback

Its clean and sterile packaging, but over sized for what it needs to do. Also the lubrication is separate from the nose hose, and hard to keep together. The hose itself is high quality.

The tube feels of good quality, not to stiff but still flexible enough. I would get the largest size with the thought of cutting it shorter if needed. The packing it comes in could be a little smaller though to fit easier in kits.
