Default Replacing vacuum lines, are these good?

hey guys, i've noticed some of my vacuum lines are rock hard. Im going to be replacing them all. I found a kit on eBay,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Silicone-Vac...3aeab5&vxp=mtr

Seems like they are quality. Come with all vacuum lines, also they are thick so it doesn't look they will collapse. What do you guys think? Good? Bad?

I don't know if I would trust no name hoses for vacuum lines, will probably collapse and cause more problems then they solve.

Go to your local auto parts store, they have a smorgasbord to choose from, you buy it by the foot and its cheap as hell.

Edit: I just looked at that link........you could do it all from your local parts store for probably $20 or less, and it will be black and not look all ricey.

I looked at those types of "kits" as well. If the time comes for me to replace vacuum lines with silicone, i'll just get them from here.

Yeah I have bought from them for FMIC couplers, they would be the only no name I would be looking into and even that would be tested first.
