1. A low-pressure hose for connection to a diving cylinder for use in underwater activities, the low pressure hose comprising:

  • an inner tubular element;

    an inner sheathing layer directly on the inner tubular member and comprising a polyester braid;

    an outer sheathing layer directly on the inner sheathing layer and comprising a nylon braid to define an abrasion-resistant outermost element of the low pressure hose that is independent from, not attached to, and does not cooperate intimately with the inner tubular element and inner sheathing layer and thereby provides enhanced flexibility and kinking prevention; and

    a hose coupling extending directly over the outer sheathing layer at an end of the hose for connecting to the diving cylinder.
