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.

Not as flexible as the older versions

By Judie B

from Shaftsbury VT

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

This is the 4th lightweight hose I've purchased from GSC. The first 2 were the best, the 3rd one seemed not quite as flexible, and this is even less flexible and kinked even when I was rolling it on to the hose reel, and now does when I'm using it in the garden. Still lightweight but doesn't have other attributes.

Great hoses

By ALH

from Portland, OR

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

These hoses are great as they have no hazardous chemicals that I don't want on my food etc. They are lightweight and easy for me to drag around (I have two, and sometimes must drag 200' of hose to separate places, this is fairly easy with these lightweight hoses). Only con is that they still sometimes kink, altho I did follow directions to lay out flat for awhile; maybe not long enough.

Curls and twists

By iris garden lady

from CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

Hose looks nice and is light. Before it fills with water, it stays nice and straight, looks like it would be usable. But when you pressurize it, it starts to grow, twist and tangle. 25 feet is the maximum length that is manageable. If you are watering, then shut off the nozzle, it starts to get fatter and uncurl, unless you had it perfectly straight and stretched out.

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

As previous folks mentioned, it is hard to get it to hang without kinking. It can be frustrating especially with the 100' size!
But it is lightweight and easy to handle!

Not for me.

By Ice seeker

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I was extremely disappointed in this hose. It Kinks everytime I try to extend it and trying to coil it into a circle to store it flat on the deck is a horrible experience. The material it's made of is stiff and resists going clockwise or counterclockwise when you try to form a circle. I wanted to exchange it for another hose and was told I would have to pay shipping or wait the over two weeks it would take for my return to be credited and the new one to be shipped. I am returning it and I am not exchanging since I can't wait 2 to 3 weeks for a replacement and I am not going to pay shipping twice in order to receive one sooner. I have had good experiences with Gardener's Supply in the past but after this experience I don't think I'll be back.
