I prefer Aeroquip to Parker. They both offer stainless swage-on ends. Your local distributor should be able to order them and have them in a day or so. They don't look as fancy as the chrome one's but they work much more reliably. Check either the Parker or Aeroquip website. I think McMaster-Carr will also make them for you and ship same-day from a local warehouse.

The stainelss braid is just for physical protection. It offers no additional benefit such as isolating the hose from the elements. You can get braid over rubber as well as teflon. The teflon will have a smaller OD for the equivalent pipe size and it is more rigid.
