Can't find rigid tube in 3/8" OD?

I recently picked up some fittings for my first ever custom loop. (https://www.primochill.com/collections/revolver/products/primochill-rigid-revolver-compression-fitting-3-8in-id-x-1-2in-od-dual-tone-4-pack-anodized-blue)

You can see that they're listed as 3/8in. ID x 1/2in. OD. However, all of the rigid tube that I find also matches those dimensions, both inner and outer.
Example: https://www.primochill.com/collections/petg-3-8-x-1-2/products/primochill-1-2in-rigid-petg-tube-6-x-30in-clear

Would anyone mind showing me what I can only assume is the painfully obvious thing I'm doing wrong?

3/8” od is very small tube, your fittings are 1/2” OD (outer diameter) ID (inner diameter) does not really metter as long as it does not restrict the flow. Both fittings and tubes are compatible

Those would be the correct tubing and fittings, it's 1/2" OD tubing and 1/2" for the fittings. Just note that primochill is inch exact and must use their own products.
