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.

One of the best

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

This is one of the sturdiest lightweight hoses I've seen. I've used others that have leaked within days. It rarely kinks (though even after following the instructions it does once in a while) but does have a tendency to tangle if you don't have it on a reel. I would definitely buy this again.

      Love the light weight. Replaced the old one in minutes. Will still link if twisted enough.

      The feather weight hose is a wonderful product. It is perfect for a woman to use ... especially a smaller woman. I'm so glad that I purchased it. It makes watering my garden much easier.

      Extremely kinks!

      By tock

      Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

      Loved my purple 100 foot hose. But it was always kinking and hard to roll up as it fought me to go the way it needed to. It now has bubbled and has several holes.

      Before this hose I owned a purple 50 foot then purchased a 25 foot to make the hose longer. It too kinked and then bubbled up and made holes.
      I will not purchase this hose again, Will miss my purple hose.

      Best Uses

        Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

        I did as instructed by laying hose totally out straight for an hour at least and then tried to circle the hose to place in hose container AND the hose twisted and crimped. I am certainly disappointed

        Easy to handle

        I bought this light weight hose, a light weight spray head and a push button adapter. I have severe arthritis and this hose is so light that I can easily take the hose to fruit trees at the back of the yard and not struggle to drag a heavy hose along. A lot of times I will use this hose to water the veggie garden instead of the heavier hose that is MUCH closer to the veggie garden because it is so much easier for me to use and put away. Thank you Gardener's Supply for this great product.

        I like the hose as is it is much, much lighter than my prior hose. I ordered the 100 foot hose too!
