I would go for the shorter tube, except that I wear the pump on my belt.
How would you deal with (ahem) those delicate bathroom moments when the
pump needs to be lowered down to the floor (along with the belt and
whatever it's attached to). At those times it seems like you need all the
tubing you can get. Or, are there are some tricks that I haven't learned
yet?
