I got a roll of 1" black nylon hose protector on Amazon:

Electriduct 1" Nylon Protective Hose Sleeve - 25 Feet - Black - $30.00​

Then whether I use OEM or have replacement hoses made locally, I simply slip a length of this nylon over the hose and zip tie it to the metal ends before reinstalling. It makes hoses last twice as long.
The trick - for me at any rate - is to have is to have a roll of it on hand. You can buy it OEM on some hoses - for about 4x the cost.

I keep rolls of various ID’s around for hydraulic hose as well as a myriad of other applications.

What is pictured, is a very different product than what rScotty is recommending.
His recommendation is for a nylon fabric type hose (Amazon).

Aha. I googled Amazon ca hose protector and spiral wrap came up for me.

The fabric wrap is way cheaper and EASIER to install

Disconnect one hose end fitting and slide the fabric protector on, reconnect hose end fitting.
Very simple!
With quick connectors that's easy. Hoses going from a pump to motors, for example, aren't removed so easily.
