Ok, I did a forum search and have found lots of good info.... I've come down to two pumps that I like. The Bigfoot and the 4'' Carlson. I want to use this pump in cold/freezing temps to top off and inflate my rafts. I'm not to concerned with weight or cost I just want it to hold up to the elements. Especially the hose. Do either have a hose worth a darn or am I just going to have to keep buying aftermarket hose? I will be using the pump on Alaska Series Rafts. Does anyone know if the pumps come with fittings that mate these rafts. I personally have liked hand pumps in the past mainly because I've never had a foot pump last more than a few outings but I would be willing to try one that could possibly be bullet proof. Again cold weather durabilty is most important. Thanks in advance for any advice.
