Product arrives in a printed heat-sealed bag, inside a grey opaque heat sealed bag. This is not the OEM part, but fits very well, good tight fit that needs a couple of goes to get located correctly. Creates an excellent seal with the rest of the kit, fitting the different attachments requires a good shove, but performance is probably better as the tolerances are tighter. Hose feels robust and maybe heavier than the original. The hose extends maybe half a metre less than the original, but that isn't an issue for me. Well made and recommended.
