PVC or Hypalon?

Can anyone who has a view on this post please? Have heard bad things about PVC, but too many manufacturers use it for it to be all bad. I've been told that joints can be weak, and it's a nightmare to repair. Comments please?!

Take a look at the following thread: PU or Hyperlon Tubes which to go for?

Remember there are *three materials
  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
  • Polyurethane
  • Hypalon
