The length of the hose is fine. I intentionally sited my vacuum outlets high enougn so that the hose would hang without touching the floor. However because the hose is longer it is heavier and it stretches the hose at the top causing it to bunch up on the floor. Somewhat disappointing as it looks a little sloppy draped on the floor.
(MD Notes: The Wally Flex comes with a shorter hose option as well.)
