Additional Information

Exclusive | Enjoy Ultra-Easy Watering with Featherweight Slim Hoses — Lightweight, Durable and Toxin-Free!

  • Easy-to-use, heavy-duty hose is amazingly lightweight and flexible
  • Toxin-free — no lead, BPA or phthalates
  • 45% lighter than traditional garden hoses!

Tired of dragging heavy hoses? Lighten up your watering routine with our ultra-lightweight hoses — the 25' hose weighs just 2.6 lbs! The hoses remain flexible, easy to maneuver, and kink-free, even in chilly weather. And they're free from the toxins found in many hoses, so they're safe for people and pets. Nylon hose guards prevent kinking at ends and the chrome-plated zinc fittings are leakproof. The textured surface offers a sure grip.

Hose Care Tips

To help prevent kinking and prolong the life of your hose:

  • Before using a new hose, straighten it and untwist the coils until the hose lays flat.
  • After each use, straighten and untwist the hose before coiling it. Do not store the hose with kinks in it.
  • Always coil your hose in the same direction — either clockwise or counterclockwise.
  • Store the hose on a hose reel for easier coiling.
  • Drain the hose as you coil it.
  • Drain the hose prior to freezing temperatures and store under cover.

Note: To attach a nozzle or other watering accessory to your Featherweight Hose, grip the hose with one hand just below the hose guard and turn the fitting on the accessory with your other hand until it’s tight.

No Pressure

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

This hose is very lightweight the color is beautiful but it's only 1/2" in diameter which means No water pressure. Takes forever to get all the watering done.

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

This hose is terrible. It kinks like crazy. It kinks so much I can barely use it. It's poorly made too. Frustrated that I threw away the packaging. Buyer beware.

These are wonderful, lightweight hoses. I gave away all my old, heavy hoses and now enjoy watering the yard and beds with these lightweight ones. You won't be disappointed in these.

This is my third purchase of the 25 foot Featherweight Slim.

By NorthDakota gardener

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I can move these hoses with such ease. I bought the three 25 ft. hoses because the hose that is connected to the faucet reaches two of my flower beds. The second hose I keep tucked under a shrub and when the shrubs need watering it is easy to connect with the first and water that side of the house. The third hose I use in the main garden. Really appreciate the light weight.

The jury is still out

By Botanic Babe

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

Recently developing wrist issues, I reluctantly had to give up on my regular Gardener's Supply heavy duty hoses as using them was an enormous strain on the newly tender wrists. Naturally, I ordered the featherweight slim hose - several of them. To my dismay, it was a chore to set up these hoses onto the reels I use - the kinking of the hoses found me asking for assistance from stronger hands & even now, a few weeks later, I am still undecided as to whether or not these featherweight hoses were worth purchasing because reeling them up is time consuming & irritating, so the jury is still out! Additionally, to further bum me out, these hoses went on sale precisely 1 week after I ordered them at full price! I'm going to give them a few more tries & then I'll see where this goes.
