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.

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I would buy this over and over because I am elderly with other disabilities and finally there is a hose I can move around the lawn myself and not requiring others to come help me with an impossibly heavy hose that I cannot lift off the ground. I have used this already to wash my dogs, and do garden chores alone. This light hose at only eight pounds is a Godsend for an elderly person who hasn't the strength to use a heavy garden hose. Thank you again for this great product!

      Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

      Following instructions I laid the hose completely out straight in the grass, which happened to be where the sun was shining, and it laid for a couple of hours. I then tried to wind up the hose but it did twist and kink. The hose is light weight but it is small and I can buy the same quality at any other home goods store.

      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.
