Manrose Cooker Hood Kit 125mm
Not so good
I don't have a problem with the individual bits, they work as well as other stuff I've fitted but...
How is it the hose is too big for the vent? I've had to build up the flange on the vent with tape to provide a close fit, no way would the hose clip tighten enough to pull the hose in otherwise.
Plus the vent suffers from the same problem as all this style with flapping around in any breeze going. They are so noisy. Luckily I had some light foam draught proofing strip which I stuck to the inside bottom edge of each vane, that's quietened it down a lot. I just hope it lasts.
-1969 men on the moon, 45 years later still can't manufacture quiet vents... How can it be so difficult?

Good quality hygienic tubing but the large hose-clip is a nightmare. The one I received is not as shown in the picture and is inadequate. Throw away the clip and use a wider superior one.
The exterior vent is an unsightly grey so buy the brown one as an extra.

I bought this kit to connect my kitchen extractor, it is good if you have a short length of duct to connect straight through the cavity wall. The problem is there is only one jubilee clip to connect your hose on one end but (unless I am missing something) there is nothing to attach to external grill. Also, the diameter seems bigger than 5 inch (125mm), meaning you have to tighten it hard to create an airtight seal and if not careful like me, you may end up puncturing through aluminium. I ended up throwing it away and used a plastic flexi duct. Anyway, I don't want to be over critical, this product extends to 1.5m and if this is all you need and expect high temperatures (gas hob) it is probably a better solution than plastic flexi hose
