    The AN stuff looks cool.... but it is heavy and expensive.
    The fuel guys use some flimsy tubing. It doesn't even stay expanded when no blow by. Light, though. I have seen guys use pvc tubing... or vinyl tubing?? and braided tubing. All sorts of stuff. Use what you like.
    I just have breathers. I am a rebel and rule ignorer. HA

    If you really want bitchin buy those 1/2 turn tube lock deals by SAE and run some bad ass tubing.

    This is the tube I have seen. It doesn't have any pressure. IF you are using it on a vacuum pump, this obviously won't work. IF for breather only... light.
    Any industrial hose supply place will have a variety of hoses, thicknesses, colors, etc to chose from.

    They are made by SAE. I saw them in Speed Sports pits... he has some...This pic came from RBS Superchargers...
    Burn Down Breathers
    Several options on this page. I like em cause the hoses pull off quick. WARNING... on a fuel boat it is recmmended to put duct tape over the 1/2 turn clamp deals.

    We use a standard rubber grommet. A 3/4 NPT AN fitting threads right into it.

    You can buy an oil fill with a built in grommet just bore the correct hole.

    This works great for plain stuff. No vacuum pump
