    Hello Everyone,

    Where can I get the ESB Hose for the Gauntlet?

    I thought of using a hose from home depot but it seems to heavy.

    Thanks
    Josh

    Search button will be your best friend for small questions like these. The hose youre looking for can be found at most hardware store and is basic plumbing hose. This thread which I found father quickly shows the diameter and description.

    I used the hose from a retractable kitchen sink spray gun attachment. $20 CDN at Home Depot.

    You can buy it by the foot at homedepot for a few bucks no need to spend $20 on the hose...unless its marked up a lot in Canada?

    Home Hardware in Canada has the right size by the foot. I think it's like $2/foot? Something like that.

    I had a tough time finding the right hose and ended up spending the $20 on the kitchen spray gun and hose at a Home Depot here in Canada. I hit a lot of stores and found either the wrong diameter or the wrong color/pattern. I just gave up and spent the $20. It's still one of the cheapest parts of my costume :-)

    Leave the hose in a bucket of water and a big tin of coffee for a week to get that used /worn look (if u want that look of course)

    I've struggled with getting them to be flexible enough. I too bought the kitchen spray gun hose. It still seemed a little too rigid. I ended up taking an exacto knife and making a bunch of slits in it to get some more flexibility. It actually works and you cannot see the cuts on the hose at all unless you inspect it carefully up close..
