    Accurate gauntlet hose size?

    Does anybody know what the accurate hose size is?

    I have always used the 1/4" ID braided hose, but I thught I read someplace that it was actually a bigger hose than that.

    I did a search, but it turned up nothing.

    I wonder if the 3/8" ID is too big?

    Any one have any ideas?

    I have the 3/8 ID hose on my fett, and IMO it is the correct size. It seems very proportional to the gauntlets, and the rest of the suit.

    Thanks Rimshot...
    That is what I was thinking as well, the 1/4" ID hose looked good with the smaller MB gauntlets, but look tiny on the movie sized gauntlets.
    I think it needs a bigger hose, so the 3/8" ID will probably look alot better.

    Anyone else have any input?

    I have a set of RKT gauntlets and I'm usig 1/2" od x 1/4" id hose. Looks pretty good to me.
    I tried the next size bigger, but it seemed TOO big.
    The 1/2 x 1/4 looks good with my Gauntlet connectors.
    I'll try and post a pic tomorrow.

    I believe it was proven at some point with proof positive that 3/8" was used.After seeing the two in person since I needed to "see" it for myself,I too was convinced of 3/8" braided hose.

    Has it been decided that 3/8 inch was the way to go for gauntlet hoses?

    Thats what I finaly used on mine and it looks dead on, 1/4" is way too small.
