It can be remarkably irritating to fit or disconnect a low-pressure suit inflator hose, especially if you are under time pressure or suffering from cold stress.
Anything to make this faffy process easier is welcomed. Therefore I was pleased to see that Swedish manufacturer Si-Tech has refined their new low-pressure drysuit inflator hose.
Si-Tech states this hose (complete with an international connector) is easy to attach, and has less O-rings and components, therefore it should be simply to maintain.
The standard length hose is 80 cm. It is however possible to buy this hose in other lengths, from 15 cm 1390 cm.
And the name? A ship called Balder sank off Aland in 1928. It was rediscovered in 2001.
